A listing on a Brazilian ratings board has sparked speculation that the upcoming Alan Wake Remastered could come to the Nintendo Switch.
The listing was spotted (as reported by Video Games Chronicle) on the Brazil Advisory Ratings board. As well as the announced Xbox, PlayStation and PC versions, it also included a mention of a Nintendo Switch edition. This is in spite of the fact that no Nintendo Switch version has been formally announced.
However, studio Remedy does have prior experience on Nintendo’s handheld. Back in 2020 it released a Cloud Version of Control on the system. So the game can run on the system via the cloud, it requires a constant internet connection. It’s entirely possible Remedy may be looking at doing the same thing here.
At the time of writing, Remedy are yet to comment on the listing or whether Alan Wake Remastered will head to the Switch. It should also be noted that some games have also had Cloud Versions that are only released in certain regions, such as Capcom’s Japan only release of Resident Evil 7 in 2018.
Alan Wake Remastered was formally revealed at the start of this month. It’ll feature the full 2010 game and all of its DLC given a spruce up for modern consoles. Currently, the game will land on Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4 and PC on October 5.
