Legrand Legacy, a love letter to Japanese RPG classics, is officially making its way to the Nintendo Switch this year. Developers at Semisoft are working on port of the game for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, but it looks like the Switch version will release a year ahead of the other two.
The game just hit PC via Steam and GOG.com on January 24th, and it's been working out pretty well among reviewers. Players take on the role of Finn, a boy with amnesia and unknown hidden powers, who must navigate the ongoing war between two kingdoms known as Fandor and Althea.
The new broke when developers were approached directly about it on Twitter:

The game's animation isn't quite as classic, with bold graphics and a dramatic story that reminds this writer of Final Fantasy X (re-mastered, of course).
Legrand Legacy is currently available on PC, but multiple ports are headed to different platforms in 2019. The release date for Nintendo Switch has not been officially announced, but we officially know that it's coming this year.
