Switch version is unexpected.

Gotta be honest, the prospect of playing an entire game as Gollum sounds colossally boring.

I could see the occasional Gollum sequence being fun... but you never go full Gollum.

I would've preferred a full scale open world game where we go back and forth between Frodo and Aragorn. With some Gollum and Gandalf on the side.

Odd that they wouldn't announce that from the beginning. Wonder why that would be. Mildly surprised at the PS5/XBox One version, but more so surprised at the Switch version. Still though, I don't really see the appeal of playing as Gollum.

Well, that sucks lol. I got a feeling that, except for the ps5 exclusives, it might be a while before we'll see true next gen games :(
