Alan Wake Remastered could end up being a switch game

Alan Wake Remastered may also head to the Nintendo Switch after the platform has been evaluated by a Brazilian distributor.

As reported by the website Shared with switch-brasil.com and Resetera, Brazilian game rating agency seems to have submitted a rating of Alan Wake Remastered, a Remedy update to the 2010 Mystery Thriller.

International rating boards have leaked hundreds, if not hundreds, of games in the past, but you can still take it with a grain of salt. Alan Wake Remastered was previously announced on PC, Xbox One, PlayStation 5, Playstation 4, and Xbox Series X | S, so it’s new to include Switch in the Brazilian rating.

It’s unclear if this will be the full release of Switch or the cloud version of the game. While porting studios have been astounding to natively port games like Doom to the Switch in the past, other major games like Resident Evil 7 have been delivered to Switch players via cloud streaming services.

On other systems, Alan Wake Remastered offers the option to run games at 60fps and 4K for compatible platforms. Remasters will also remove real product placement ads in favor of fictitious brands from space.

Other than that, it’s a true remaster of the original game.I’m talking to Axios, Remedy teased fans wanting to “definitely pay attention by playing remasters” about tweaks that could connect Alan Wake to other Remedy games.

Epic and Remedy also agreed to partner in a second unreleased game that some speculate to be a sequel. But we have to wait.
