NIS America and Suda51 have confirmed that The Silver Case and The 25th Ward will be released on Nintendo Switch as The Silver Case 2425 in July 2021.
Cult murder mystery visual novels The Silver Case and The 25th Ward will come to the Nintendo Switch later this year in a special two-game package titled The Silver Case 2425. The pack will be released in North America on July 6 and Europe and Oceania on July 9.
In our review of the 2016 PC edition of The Silver Case, we said: “This is not a game that will appeal to everyone, mostly because at times it feels like calling it a video game is a bit of a stretch. However, its story and presentation can negate this criticism and make it a memorable and unique experience.”
A limited-edition is also available directly from publisher NIS America. Among the included goodies are an art book and a copy of Masafumi Takada’s striking soundtrack.
The Silver Case 2425 Limited Edition contents

If you want to know more about The Silver Case, we also recommend watching Active Gaming Media’s 2016 documentary, which looks at the process of remastering the game for PC.

We have a favour to ask
Thumbsticks has a couple of main aims. We want to write interesting articles and cover games that most outlets won't, and we want to give opportunities to new writers and new voices. And right now, with the current state of online publishing? It's tough! We hate to ask, but if you want us to continue writing what others won't, or to keep covering weird indie games, or to be able to give opportunities to new writers – and only if you can afford it – then please consider supporting us on Patreon.
