Microids and PlayMagic have released a launch trailer for their XIII remake, which is coming to Nintendo Switch next year.

The cult classic cel-shaded first-person shooter that had released on PlayStation 2, Xbox, and GameCube in 2003.

Based on the first five volumes of the comic book series, you play as Thirteen – an expert soldier who has lost his memory but stands accused of murdering the President of the United States.

Waking up on Brighton Beach injured and amnesic, your only clue is a small key and a mysterious XIII tattoo next to your collarbone. In the 34-level solo campaign, you must now search for answers.

There will also be a XIII Limited Edition that will release at retail, which comes with SteelBook Case, three art cards and an in-game Golden XIII Weapons skin pack, with the Golden Knife and Golden Pistol available as a pre-order bonus.

XIII will release at retail and on the Nintendo eShop for Nintendo Switch worldwide in 2021.
