Kingdoms Of Amalur: Re-Reckoning Confirmed for Nintendo Switch

THQ Nordic's hit action-RPG will soon be portable for the first time ever, coming to the Nintendo Switch very soon.

THQ Nordic has been reviving old franchises across the board, and you may recall last year saw the release of action-RPG Kingdoms of Amalur: Re-Reckoning. A remaster of 2012's Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning, we thought it still held up brilliantly, giving it a 9/10, for "fantastic fast-paced combat" and an "engrossing story about defying Fate," so it’s quite pleasing to see it’s now coming to Nintendo Switch.

Announced today via a press release, Kingdoms of Amalur: Re-Reckoning is set to launch on March 16, and THQ Nordic said this about the release "from the minds of the bestselling author R.A. Salvatore, Spawn creator Todd McFarlane, and Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion lead designer Ken Rolston": 

Remastered with stunning visuals and refined gameplay Re-Reckoning delivers intense, customizable RPG combat inside a sprawling game world.

Uncover the secrets of Amalur, from the vibrant city of Rathir to the vast region of Dalentarth to the grim dungeons of the Brigand Hall Caverns. Rescue a world torn apart by a vicious war and control the keys to immortality as the first warrior ever to be resurrected from the grips of death.

Re-Reckoning has hundreds of hours of content, including all three previous DLCs — The Teeth of Naros, Legend of Dead Kel, and Weapons and Armor. A further expansion called Fatesworn is also planned for later this year. 

Re-Reckoning has never been released in handheld form until now, making this quite a tempting proposition. We’ll keep you posted as more news comes in about Kingdoms of Amalur's Switch release and upcoming expansion.
