Double Fine Productions has announced that Grim Fandango Remastered is now available on Nintendo Switch, receiving a surprise release on the Nintendo eShop to mark the game’s 20th anniversary.
With unforgettable characters and a unique combination of film noir and Mexican folklore, Grim Fandango became an instant classic when it was first released and is still considered to be one of the most acclaimed adventure games of all time.
Something’s rotten in the land of the dead, and you’re being played for a sucker. Meet Manny Calavera, travel agent at the Department of Death. He sells luxury packages to souls on their four-year journey to eternal rest. But there’s trouble in paradise. Help Manny untangle himself from a conspiracy that threatens his very salvation.
“It’s been 20 years since I created Grim Fandango at LucasArts and boy, it was a journey to say the least. But knowing how much enjoyment it brought players, it was all worth it,” explains Double Fine founder Tim Schafer.
“The best part of releasing on Switch is that returning players can now take it on the go and we have a chance to show it to a whole new generation.”
Grim Fandango Remastered is now available on the Nintendo eShop for Nintendo Switch worldwide priced at £11.49 ($14.99).
