It said the RPG remaster, which was released for PS4, Xbox One and PC in September 2020, features improved visual fidelity, “refined gameplay” and three DLC packs released for the original title: The Teeth of Naros, Legend of Dead Kel and Weapons and Armor Bundle.
Kingdom of Amalur originally launched in 2012 for Xbox 360, PS3 and PC to favourable reviews. It features a world created by bestselling author R.A. Salvatore, Spawn creator Todd McFarlane and Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion lead designer Ken Rolston.
THQ Nordic has also reiterated plans to release a new DLC expansion called Fatesworn which will continue the game’s story “later in 2021”.
It didn’t confirm pricing for the Switch version of the game in Tuesday’s announcement. On other platforms, Fatesworn is bundled with a special Fate Edition of Re-Reckoning, which is priced at $15/£13 more than the standard edition, which retails for $39.99/£34.99.
VGC’s Kingdoms of Amalur Re-Reckoning review labelled the game “a disappointing remaster of a great RPG”.
Our critic wrote: “I honestly feel silly for getting my hopes up and expecting more from a remaster, such as finally having the ability to jump, but love makes you do stupid things, even if it is just a video game.
“Kingdoms of Amalur Re-Reckoning is the same great game given a hi-res finish, but fans might be disappointed that it’s not more.”
