Alan Wake Remastered could be a Switch game after all
Alan Wake Remastered could also make its way to the Nintendo Switch after being rated for the platform by a Brazilian agency.
As reported by the site switch-brasil.com and shared on Resetera, it appears that a Brazilian game company has filed a rating for Alan Wake Remastered, Remedy’s update for its 2010 mystery thriller.
International leaderboards have leaked several, if not hundreds of games in the past, although you can still take that with a grain of salt. Alan Wake Remastered has already been announced for PC, Xbox One, PlayStation 5, Playstation 4, and Xbox Series X | S, so the inclusion of Switch in the Brazilian rating is new.
It’s unclear whether this will be a full version on Switch or a cloud version of the game. While port studios have done wonders in the past to natively port games like Doom to the Switch. , other major games like Resident Evil 7 were delivered to Switch players via a cloud streaming service.
On other systems, Alan Wake Remastered will offer options to run the game at 60 fps and 4K for compatible platforms. The Remaster will also remove actual product placement ads in favor of fictitious brands in the universe.
Other than that, it will be a real remaster of the original game. While speaking with Axes, Remedy teased that fans will want to “be really careful while playing the remaster,” for any adjustments that might connect Alan Wake to other Remedy games.
Epic and Remedy have also agreed to team up on an unannounced second game that some believe is a sequel. But we’ll have to wait and see.
