Sony Announces It’s Publishing An Indie Title Tiny Metal For Nintendo Switch

Sony Music Entertainment, which has its own publishing label which is titled Unties, has announced today that its bringing a game to the Nintendo Switch. The game is titled Tiny Metal developed by Area35 and is best described as indie Advance Wars. Tiny Metal will arrive on a variety of platforms on November 21st.

“With the growth of game development environments, high quality game development has become possible even in small scale environments, and the evolution of digital publishing has made it easier to distribute developed titles to users worldwide. On the other hand, with a mixed bag of titles overflowing the market, there are also situations where interesting titles are buried without being noticed.

At Unties, we dig up the masterpieces buried in those situations, and support them so that more users notice and pick them up. We spread information about excellent games and sell titles for multiple platforms.

The name “Unties” comes from the thought “to unleash the excellent talents of unique game creators all over the world” and “setting creators free from the various shackles of game publishing, named from the intention of realizing publishing that is freedom of production without restraints.”

    Hm. Interesting. Not my type of game but cool for those that do like Advance Wars type of games.

  3. I dig this kinda news. I hope they’re as supportive to these indie devs as they say. I also like this cross-pollination between competitors we’re seeing lately with cross platform multiplayer, indie guest stars and such.

  4. This is basically telling me that Sony is NOT considering a new Handheld and have now just gone full Home Console.
    I think it’s good as they’ll still earn money from game sells without having that extra loss from console sales. Although this does mean SuperMetalDave will be crying for the next few years until the PS5, Xbox 4 and Nintendo Switch 2 are released.

    1. “This is basically telling me that Sony is NOT considering a new Handheld and have now just gone full Home Console.”

      How is this any kind of indication for that? Sony’s publishing label did not develop this game, they’re just publishing it. And it’s not Sony Computer Entertainment either, it’s Sony Music Entertainment, who are not responsible for the Playstation brand.
      I don’t think we’ll see a Sony handheld again anytime soon, but I don’t see how this piece of news is related to any of that, in any way.

      1. A future Sony handheld is indeed bleak, but If theres a company bold (stupid) enough to do it, it would most likely be Sony. They seem to take a lot of risks, and honestly, thats what I like the most about them.

      Still waiting for the Trojan Horse that is Minecraft: Switch Edition to open up & release it’s little vermin. lol

  5. Funny how everyone always said Nintendo should just give up consoles and publish on PS and XBox, now Sony and Microsoft are both publishing games on a Nintendo console.

    1. You mean all of the “can’t wait to play Zelda on my PS4” comments? I dunno… give these people some credit, they predicted Nintendo’s DOOM probably since the PS2/GC/XB generation… and I couldn’t wait for something that isn’t gonna happen, either…

      1. It does seem strange that the game wasnt published by SIE.

        Hate to be that guy, but it seems like Sony wants to advertise from within (ALA MS with Minecraft.) It still doesnt seem like an insult. More like a Trojan horse.

        1. ||A Trojan horse, the equivalent of a Luminothian crystal, is a big insult…||
