The developer’s award-winning cinematic action-thriller will come to the portable home console “as a digital Nintendo Switch release only, and runs natively on the hardware.”
Promising to “show more in the coming months,” the remastered port was previously released for PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, Xbox Series X, Xbox One and PC boasting “stunning new 4K visuals.” This saw the developer enhance the game’s cutscenes, character models and “majestic Pacific Northwest vistas” in an effort for the experience to deliver “as much on its visual impact as its unnerving atmosphere.”
It’s unclear whether the Nintendo Switch port will be more in line with the original Xbox 360 version, but Alan Wake Remastered at least came with the main game and its two story expansions – The Signal and The Writer.
After troubled author Alan Wake sets out on a desperate search for his missing wife Alice after she mysteriously disappears from town of Bright Falls, he discovers pages of a horror story he has supposedly written but has no memory of.
Soon forced to question his sanity, the story comes true before his eyes page-by-page as a hostile presence of supernatural darkness possesses everyone that it finds and turns them against him. That leaves him with no choice but to confront the darkness with a flashlight, handgun and the remains of his shredded mind.
Alan Wake Remastered will release digitally on the Nintendo eShop for Nintendo Switch worldwide in Fall 2022.
