While the beloved Xbox 360 exclusive Alan Wake hid away on the 7th generation console for a decade mostly, the game did make waves on PC at the same time. It was not until late 2018 that the developer managed to resurrect the game for the platform after acquiring the rights to the IP. Later in 2021, the developer announced Alan Wake Remastered.
However, unlike the original game over a decade ago, this will instead be breaking its exclusive ties on console and will be releasing on PlayStation systems too. The game officially arrived in October last fall. In December, Remedy Entertainment properly announced Alan Wake II is officially in the development pipeline.
Now this week celebrating more than 12 years since the launch of the series, the team reveals Alan Wake Remastered is to receive a Nintendo Switch version. You can watch the segment of the presentation in the video below:
“Hey, by the way, as you can probably recognize this awesome piece of hardware here, I’m happy to share that Alan Wake Remastered is coming out to Nintendo Switch,” Remedy Entertainment Creative Director Sam Lake announces. “We’ll let you know once we have the actual release date.” The game is told to be a digital-only release and will be a native port to the Nintendo Switch.”
This will be Remedy Entertainment’s second Nintendo Switch game following Control: Cloud Version. Unique Alan Wake Remastered, Control required more capable hardware which resulted in cloud streaming to deliver a playable version of the game on Nintendo’s hardware.
