Kingdoms of Amalur: Re-Reckoning Announced for Nintendo Switch
Kingdoms of Amalur: Re-Reckoning will be released on Nintendo Switch on March 16, 2021.
Announced alongside a new trailer, Kingdoms of Amalur: Re-Reckoning is a remastered version of 2012’s Kingdoms of Amalur that was released on PS4, Xbox One, and PC in 2020.
The remaster includes all the DLC, including Teeth of Naros and Legend of Dead Kel. Furthermore, there will also be a new DLC expansion – Fatesworn – that is scheduled to arrive later in 2021.
In our review of Kingdoms of Amalur: Re-Reckoning, we said “On some levels, Kingdoms of Amalur: Re-Reckoning is still a worthwhile RPG to hack and slash your way through, even if this remaster doesn’t go above and beyond the bare minimum expectations. But while the ideas and mechanics that make games like Red Faction: Guerilla and Burnout feel special are still largely singularly unique to them, almost everything that made Amalur stand out in its day has become standard fare for just about any RPG to come out in the past decade.”
Kingdoms of Amalur was originally developed by 38 Studios and was published by EA. In 2018, THQ Nordic bought the property from the now-defunct studio.
While received positively, Amalur did come with its fair share of controversy, as the Rhode Island Economic Development Corporation filed a lawsuit against 38 Studios founder and ex-Boston Red Sox pitcher Curt Schilling and other executives.
