Alan Wake Remastered might be coming to the Switch. Remedy hasn’t yet officially announced it, but the game showed up on a ratings board in Brazil. The country’s Advisory Rating Board has published a listing for a title (as seen by VGC) that suggests an announcement might be on the way soon enough.
Although it does not confirm the addition to the Switch, Brazil’s ratings board has leaked many real games in the past, so it’s possible that this could be the real deal. Sometimes ratings boards post listings by mistake, as was the case when PEGI listed Borderlands 3 for the Nintendo Switch.
A spokesperson for Alan Wake Remastered publisher Epic Games declined to comment when asked by VGC. Remedy also declined to make a statement about the possibility of Alan Wake Remastered coming to the Switch.
Remedy’s latest game, Control, came to the Switch in 2020 as a streaming title. This could easily be the case for Alan Wake Remastered.
Alan Wake Remastered launches on October 5th for PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, and PC. The game features 4K graphics and 60fps gameplay on some platforms, along with new cutscenes and better facial animation. There are also improved textures and more realistic-looking character models, as well as better visual effects and lighting. It’s been over ten years since the original game launched and the visual improvements will be add to the eerie setting of the game.
It’s also rumored that Remedy is developing Alan Wake 2 with the help of Epic Games, who is publishing and funding the title.
