Alan Wake Remastered has been rated for Nintendo Switch again
Switch version classified in the US by the ESRB, following Brazilian rating
A Nintendo Switch version of Alan Wake Remastered has been classified in by the US by the Entertainment Software Rating Board.
The country’s classification body has rated the game for Nintendo’s console alongside the recently released PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X/S versions.
On September 20, a Switch version of Alan Wake Remastered was also classified in Brazil.
Contacted at the time about any plans it might have to bring Alan Wake Remastered to Switch, a spokesperson for publisher Epic Games told VGC the company had nothing new to announce.
Alan Wake is an action-adventure game first released for Xbox 360 and PC in 2010. It follows a best-selling thriller novelist as he tries to uncover the mystery behind his wife’s disappearance, all while experiencing events from his latest book which he cannot remember writing.
Developer Remedy and publisher Epic announced Alan Wake Remastered in early September and the game was released on October 5.
It includes the original game and its two story expansions, The Signal and The Writer, improved with 4K visuals and a new commentary from creative director Sam Lake.
“Alan Wake Remastered is the original experience you fell in love with all those years ago. We did not want to change that,” said Lake.
“But the visuals all around, including the character model of Alan Wake himself and the cinematics, have been updated and improved with some choice next-generation upgrades.”
VGC’s 4/5 Alan Wake Remastered review said “an uneven action experience gets by on a huge amount of charm and a gorgeous visual treatment that more than holds its own ten years later.”
Remedy made its Switch debut last year with the the launch of a cloud version of Control, which includes the base game, both its expansion packs, and all additional game modes.
