Snoop Through A Normal Lost Phone on Nintendo Switch Next Month

Accidental Queens' curious indie text message-diving title is headed to the Nintendo Switch.


Video games are a great way to live out experiences that users couldn't or shouldn't partake in otherwise. Perhaps that's one of the design inspirations behind A Normal Lost Phone, the indie adventure title from developer Accidental Queens coming soon to the Nintendo Switch that tasks players with digging through a stranger's phone in order to uncover details of their life and their whereabouts.

A Normal Lost Phone first released for smartphones and PC via Steam back in January of 2017, and while its budget-friendly price tag might have left some assuming that the game is an easy pass, the unique indie title has received more than a fair share of acclaim. Throughout the experience, players will be tasked with searching through a phone owned by a man named Sam in order to learn more about his life. This involves looking through the likes of text messages, photos, and applications, all through a fictional smartphone interface. Check out some of its gameplay in the trailer featured below.

The upcoming release of A Normal Lost Phone marks yet another indie release coming to Switch, albeit one with more gaming accolades than some similarly priced releases. It should cost about the same as the Steam version as well, which is currently running for just $2.99. Players can expect to learn much and more about the life of Sam when A Normal Lost Phone releases for the Nintendo Switch on March 1.
