Alan Wake Remastered is coming to Nintendo Switch

Remedy Entertainment, the developer of well-known action games like Max Payne & Control, brings Alan Wake Remastered to the Nintendo Switch.

The spooky action thriller Alan Wake Remastered coming soon to the Nintendo Switch. Developer Remedy Entertainment gained popularity after the release of the first two Max Payne games in the early 2000s. These games featured smooth action gameplay with slow-motion gunfights like no other video game had before. However, after the release of Max Payne 2: The Fall of Max Payne, the developer has started work on a new action-adventure game inspired by the works of Stephen King and the Supernatural. In 2010, Alan Wake was released exclusively on Xbox 360.

The heart-pounding action and mysterious plot of Alan Wake set it apart from other action games of the time. While Remedy was previously canceled Alan Wake 2 to focus on other projects, development recently restarted on the long-awaited sequel. Since the release of the first game, the developer has evolved its gameplay through titles like Quantum Break and (for many) the game of the year 2019 Control. But in a recent video, Remedy revealed some new information that’s sure to get some Nintendo Switch owners excited.

This autumn, Alan Wake Remastered will be available for download on the Nintendo Switch. As reported by Kotakua video was released by Remedy to celebrate the game’s twelfth anniversary and share updates on three upcoming Alan Wake projects. With a brand new sequel and Alan Wake A TV series in the works with AMC, fans of the franchise have a lot to look forward to. The video below reveals that the game’s developers have always planned to expand the franchise beyond the first game. A specific release date has not been announced, but Nintendo Switch owners will be able to try out the first game from the series this fall.

While the developer’s previous game, Controlwas playable on the Nintendo Switch only as a cloud-based game, Alan Wake Remastered is configured to be downloadable. This will help gamers enjoy the updated version of the game by avoiding common pitfalls that cloud gaming is known for like lag and pixelation issues. The remaster of the psychological action game was already released last October on current and last-gen consoles with enhanced visuals and improved character models. But it will be the first time Alan Wake was released on a Nintendo console.

After years of waiting and several more Remedy releases, fans didn’t know if more Alan Wake would never come. However, after the massively successful game Control was revealed to take place in the same universe as Alan Wake, fans have become incredibly excited to learn more about the supernatural universe the game developer is about to create. Remedy said the upcoming sequel won’t require you to play its previous games to enjoy it. But once Alan Wake Remastered releases on Nintendo Switch this fall, it will be the perfect time to reconnect with the history of the game. Many Nintendo fans will finally be able to discover Alan Wake for the first time before more is revealed about the crime novelist in the game’s sequel and upcoming TV series.
