Alan Wake Remastered Receiving Native Nintendo Switch Release; Fall 2022

Developer Remedy Entertainment and Epic Games Publishing have announced that their adventure title, Alan Wake Remastered, will be receiving a native Nintendo Switch release this Fall. However, this version of the game is confirmed to be digital-only, with no physical plans in the works. Still, it’s always possible for minds to be changed on this matter.

You can view the Alan Wake Anniversary Update video, where this notable news was announced below via Remedy Entertainment’s official Youtube channel. Sam Lake, Ilkka Villi, and Matthew Porretta discuss their thoughts and history with the series to emotional extents that would assuredly impact fans.

The original Alan Wake was released on May 14, 2010, for Xbox 360 and then PC. This title is an absolute cult classic that has earned a passionate fanbase, and this re-release has only amplified the community’s size and delight.

Alan Wake Remastered is currently available on PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One Xbox Series X|S, and PC via the Epic Games Store.
