In an announcement that was expected ages ago following the appearance of an age rating, Alan Wake Remastered is confirmed to be heading to Switch this Autumn / Fall as an eShop-only release. Previously released on PS4/PS5 and Xbox One/Xbox Series X|S, the pleasing news is that it’ll be running natively, not as a Cloud version.
Originally released on Xbox 360 way back in 2010, Alan Wake made waves and won over plenty of fans for its approach to episodic storytelling, structuring itself as a psychological thriller with action gameplay. As a follow up to its terrific work on the Max Payne series it further established Remedy’s reputation, even if some jokes have been made over the years about Wake being overly keen to stress he’s a writer – though it is key to the story – and the classic hoodie under jacket attire.
It is also referenced to a fair amount in Control, interestingly, with Remedy clearly keen to build on the lore and world it’s been creating.
In other news, Remedy has confirmed that it now has a partner for its long-in-development Alan Wake TV series – it’ll work with AMC Networks to make it a reality.
Are you planning to pick up Alan Wake Remastered on Switch later this year?
