THQ Nordic announced an RPG Kingdoms of Amalur: A RecalculationRemastered 2012 Kingdoms of Amalur: The Reckoning, On the Nintendo Switch on March 16th.
The release will be the first time Kingdoms of Amalur has launched on a portable console, and the Switch owners seem to be perfectly fine. Three DLCs will be included in total – The Teeth of Naros, Legend of Dead Kel, and Weapon and Armor Packs – which, when combined with the base game, are said to provide “hundreds of hours of exploration, dynamic combat, and adventure”. Oh, and the music is by former rare employee Grant Kerkhope, which is nice.
Here is an official description:
The RPG is back! From the minds of best-selling author RA Salvatore, creator of Spawn Todd McFarlane, and Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion head designer Ken Rolston, Kingdoms of Amalur: Re-Reckoning. It’s re-mastered with stunning visuals and enhanced Re-Reckoning gameplay that delivers intense and customizable RPG combat within a sprawling gaming world. Discover Amalur’s secrets, from the vibrant city of Rathir to the vast Dalentarth area to the dungeons of Brigand Hall Caverns. Save a world torn apart by a fierce war and control the keys to immortality as the first warrior to be resurrected from the grip of death.
Players are tasked with building their own characters from “infinite” combos before developing their class and facing off against enemies. There is loads of world class content and traditions for you to explore, plus a number of side quests that will keep running for hours and hours.
There is more on the way too, as THQ Nordic confirmed its plans to expand an entirely new Amalur Kingdoms called Fatesworn. Details are still very thin for now, but we have been told to expect it to arrive later this year.
