Sam Lake, the creative director of the game at Remedy Entertainment, made the announcement in honor of Alan Wake’s 12th birthday that the much-loved action horror game, Alan Wake Remastered, will be adapted for portability. Alan Wake Remastered was released as an updated version of the original game last year. Alan Wake Remastered, which was first released in 2018 for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC, will be coming to Nintendo Switch in the fall, as Remedy has confirmed, confirming previous rumors and leaks.
In the video that was released to celebrate the game’s anniversary, Remedy revealed that the game will be made available on the console in the fall of this year, but that it will only be made accessible digitally. They also indicated that the game will operate locally on the hardware and that there will not be a cloud version of the game. In the upcoming months, more information will be given regarding the release, and the development team is thrilled about the prospect of letting Nintendo gamers experience the narrative of Alan Wake for the very first time.
The announcement is sure to excite users of Nintendo’s Switch console, especially taking into consideration the fact that a full-fledged survival horror sequel, titled Alan Wake 2, is also present in the works.
