Developer Tinyware Games have announced that their upcoming story-driven 3D platformer, Misc. A Tiny Tale, will be coming to the Nintendo Switch.
It’s likely that fans of the beloved cult classic Chibi-Robo have had the upcoming 3D platformer Misc. A Tiny Tale on their radar for some time. You may have also tried out its free demo during the Steam Next Fest – where we covered and reviewed it – or just generally over on its Steam store page. Or perhaps this is the first time you’re hearing about this “captivatingly unique” platformer. Either way, the announcement that Misc. A Tiny Tale will be coming to the Nintendo Switch is likely music to your ears.
The game has been in development since 2020, and bringing it to the Nintendo Switch has been a dream come true for the three-person development team. While Steam is always a perfect place for platformers, the Switch feels like the ideal platform especially considering Misc. A Tiny Tale’s roots. Founder of Tinyware Games, Michael Pearce, spoke about how they are trying to fill a Chibi-Robo sized hole in people’s platforming libraries.
We hope to build a game that fills the hole Chibi-Robo fans have wanted for many years, while also creating a unique and memorable wholesome story.Michael Pearce ~ Tinyware Games

What Is Misc. A Tiny Tale?
Misc. A Tiny Tale is a narrative-driven 3D platformer that follows the adventures of two robots Buddy and Bagbog. You must leap and bound your way through each level collecting the requisite golden cogs needed to proceed to the next chapter. Additionally, you’ll meet a colourful cast of characters along your way who all need your help.
In our preview of Misc. A Tiny Tale’s demo we said: “Misc. A Tiny Tale encapsulates the creativity, originality and brilliance often missing from larger more clinical triple-A titles. It affords the player a glimpse into what outstanding innovation upon an overburdened and oversaturated genre truly looks like.”
Here’s some of what you can expect when Misc. A Tiny Tale comes to the Nintendo Switch:
- Explore a stunning and original world filled with unique characters each with their own playful personality
- Experience buttery smooth platforming that makes every leap and bound feel precise
- Collect golden cogs spread out across each of the cleverly designed levels
- Immerse yourself in a heartfelt adventure told through detailed cutscenes
- Uncover dozens of nuts across every level that can be spent at the “CanDo!” stores
- Test your platforming skills in the tough but rewarding underground platforming challenges
Release Date & Price
Misc. A Tiny Tale is releasing sometime next year. The developers are aiming to price it around AU$20-30. It will now launch for both Steam and the Nintendo Switch. Head on over to its Steam store page to wishlist it and be notified of any future updates. You can also find the game’s free demo there.
