Video game historians oft speak of the failed collaboration between Nintendo and Sony that spawned the original PlayStation console. The deserted Nintendo PlayStation, which fell through just before production began, has soured the relationship between the companies for the last two decades. 

But now, 26 years after the Nintendo PlayStation failed to make its way into the world, Sony is going to officially publish games for the Nintendo Switch.

The story starts with a new video game publishing arm of Sony’s massive music division, Sony Music Entertainment. The publishing arm is called UNTIES and its goal is to bring unique, overlooked indie games to a wider audience. 

The first game that the studio plans to publish is called Tiny Metal which, according to a description sent to TechRadar by UNTIES, is described as “a classic style strategy sim … [that’s a] fusion of classic turn-based strategy battles and cutting-edge 3D graphics powered by Unreal Engine.”

The game is slated for release on November 21, 2017 and will launch on PC, PS4 and … strangely, Nintendo Switch.
