I always find the concept of annoucing an announcement a bit strange.

Builds hype, gets more chatter on social media, and creates free publicity for companies.

I could be wrong because my memory about this is really hazy, but I think I've read that the development of the first game was really troubled. That's probably why there's no PC version, and that's why there probably won't be a Switch version either.

"It's coming to Switch" might become a meme at some point.
