South Korean Ratings Point to Catherine: Full Body, XCOM 2 on Switch

More international ratings point to two additional Switch ports on the way. But when?

Over the weekend, Nintendo Switch ratings for Atlus’ puzzle game, Catherine: Full Body, and Firaxis’ turn-based strategy game, the XCOM 2 Collection, were spotted on the South Korean Game Rating and Administration Committee website. The ratings were originally filed in January.

Apart from meaning the games have official South Korean ratings, it means official announcements might be around the corner. Unlike so-called leaks and dodgy retailer postings — which are right only some of the time — a published rating means the game is probably going to be released sometime soon.

That’s why we’ll probably be hearing more about Tales of Arise sooner rather than later. And the ratings leaks for Doom 64 late last year ended up being true. 

Catherine: Full Body would be Atlus’ first title for the Switch. It’s… certainly an interesting choice for the first title, but hopefully that, plus the recent survey recognizing fan demand for titles on the platform, means we can look forward to more Atlus games on Switch in the future, other than Shin Megami Tensei V.

#BreakFreePersona this isn’t, but it’s a start — and no one even had to beg for it.

XCOM 2 Collection is a bit more at home on the Switch. After all, the system already has three squad-based tactics games — Valkyria Chronicles 1, Valkyria Chronicles 4, and Mario+Rabbids. Having all the additional XCOM 2 content in one package would be very convenient (and affordable) as well.

Whether we’ll be hearing official announcements for Catherine and XCOM 2 on Switch in an upcoming Nintendo Direct, we’ll just have to wait and see. Either way, what with The Witcher 3 on Switch, Bioshock: The Collection, and plenty of others, it seems like last year’s April Fool’s joke of “Everything’s coming to the Switch!” was rather prophetic after all.
