Alan Wake Remastered Now Available on Nintendo Switch Natively; 20% Launch Discount

Epic Games and Remedy have announced that their mystery adventure, Alan Wake Remastered, is now digitally available on Nintendo Switch for a temporarily 20% discounted price of $23.99.

This port is entirely native to the console and was initially announced to be arriving since May 2022, but the lack of any news leading up to this launch makes it a stealth release. There are currently no plans on whether a physical release will occur.

You can view the game’s Nintendo Switch launch trailer below:

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 also currently available on PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One Xbox Series X|S, and PC via the Epic Games Store. A native Nintendo Switch was recently announced.
