Skybound Games and Beamdog have announced when The Baldur’s Gate: Enhanced Edition Pack will release for Nintendo Switch.
This celebrates the series’ 20th anniversary and comes with both the original Baldur’s Gate: Enhanced Edition and Baldur’s Gate II: Enhanced Edition, all downloadable content and restored quest content, and the Baldur’s Gate: Siege of Dragonspear expansion – new original content that was created to bridge the two games.
For these ports, the developer has added native support for high-resolution widescreen displays, controls optimized for console controllers, new standalone content, new characters and classes, new voice sets, expanded character creation options, improved multiplayer functionality, redesigns of the UI and UX, bug fixes, balance changes, and more.
“It’s such a pleasure to celebrate the 20th anniversary of one of the most legendary RPGs of all time, the original Baldur’s Gate, as well as the iconic games it inspired, by bringing these special enhanced editions to a new generation of players and platforms,” explains Skybound Games CEO Ian Howe.
“It’s been nearly two decades since Baldur’s Gate was born from a D&D campaign between me and the game’s co-creators,” adds Beamdog CEO Trent Oster.
“The longevity of this series and the games that followed has been both humbling and rewarding. Our team is thrilled to continue that tradition by finally making this wealth of amazing storytelling and gameplay available to everyone on modern consoles.”
The Baldur’s Gate: Enhanced Edition Pack will release at retail and on the Nintendo eShop for Nintendo Switch in North America on September 24th and in other territories on September 27th, priced at $49.99.
