Nintendo Switch, Nintendo Switch Lite and Nintendo Switch OLED are getting one of the best Xbox 360 games at some point this year. Many refer to 2022 as a quiet year for the Switch, but the reality is that there have already been some standout releases, more Splaton 3, Bayonet 3, Xenoblade Chronicles 3, Mario Strikers: Battle League, Fire Emblem Warriors: Three Hopes, Pokemon scarlet and violet, with more to come later this year. It’s not been the Switch’s best year, but it’s far from a quiet year. And now Switch users can also look forward to the recent remaster of Alan Wake.
Specifically, publisher Epic Games and developer Remedy Entertainment announced that Alan Wake Remastered is coming to Nintendo eShop this fall. Unfortunately, if you prefer your physical Switch games, you’re out of luck, as this will be a digital-only release.
Alan Wake retaliated in 2010 via developer Remedy Entertainment and Microsoft Game Studios. At the time of its release, it was an Xbox 360 exclusive, although it lost that full exclusivity in 2012 as far as the PC is concerned. Nine years later, a remaster was released with both DLC versions. Double Alan Wake remastered, it was released in October of the same year via PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series S and Xbox Series X. This is the upcoming version on Nintendo Switch.
