Nintendo Switch gets 2008 Nintendo DS game remaster
Nintendo Switch and Nintendo Switch Lite are getting a classic Nintendo DS 2008 game, although at this time it’s not clear exactly when exactly Switch and Switch Lite users can expect to see the 13-year-old game again. In fact, at the moment, there is no word on a Western release, only a Japanese release, which will arrive later this year. Of course, if that never comes to the west, Switch and Switch Lite users will have to import the game or create a Japanese Switch account.
As for the game itself, it’s a remaster of Nightmare Knights. The remaster – which is also coming to mobile devices – is being managed by the game’s original developer, Sting Entertainment.
As you may remember, Nightmare Knights is a strategy game where shoot’em up meets RPG, which debuted in 2008 via the Nintendo DS. Two years later, the game arrived on PSP. While there is no word of this remaster coming West, the original did.
Speaking of the original, it posted decent reviews, getting a 76 on Metacritic. It’s unclear how the game sold commercially, but apparently well enough to warrant a remaster.
âSomewhere between the sky and the underworld, a mysterious wisp awakens the souls of the dead to face the evil that has cost them their lives and their kingdom,â reads an official pitch for the game. âControl this spirit and command the fallen knights in this gripping story of loss and redemption. “
