Valiant Hearts: The Great War Out Now for Nintendo Switch

Valiant Hearts: The Great War is now available on Nintendo Switch, bringing its story of love and survival during World War I to a new audience. An emotionally charged 2D adventure that combines action, stealth, platforming, and puzzle-solving, Valiant Hearts follows the interconnected stories of five characters as they struggle to stay alive in the trenches, on mortar-strewn battlefields, and behind enemy lines. There's Karl, a reluctant German soldier drafted after being expelled from France; Emile, Karl's father-in-law, drafted into the French army; Freddie, an American volunteer with the French Foreign Legion; Anna, a French combat nurse; and Walt, a medic's faithful casualty dog.

The Nintendo Switch version includes a gallery of the game's artwork, as well as Valiant Hearts: Dogs of War, an interactive graphic story that follows Walt and his sister, Cassie, as they rescue soldiers and deliver messages in the early years of World War I.
