More great games are coming to the Nintendo Switch, and that's never a bad thing. Today, Tim Schafer's Double Fine Productions revealed they're working on bringing a remaster of the beloved adventure game, Grim Fandango, to the Nintendo Switch. Moreso, they're also working on porting their most recent adventure game, Broken Age, to the console as well. No release dates have been set, but hopefully within the next few months they'll be out:
Double Fine Productions today announced they’re working on bringing their beloved adventure game, Grim Fandango Remastered, to Nintendo Switch in the coming months. The details were revealed during a live reading of Grim Fandango, which featured the full original cast including Tim Schafer and Jack Black at the E3 Coliseum. The event and celebration of the game’s 20th anniversary also included live music from composer Peter McConnell.
Grim Fandango is one of the most acclaimed adventure games of all time, with unforgettable characters and a unique combination of film noir and Mexican folklore. Players jump in as Manny Calavera, travel agent at the Department of Death to help untangle him from a conspiracy that threatens his very salvation. The story has been remastered to look, sound, and control even better.
Along with Grim Fandango, Double Fine will also release the graphic adventure video game, Broken Age on Nintendo Switch in the next few months. More details to come.
Broken Age is a timeless coming-of-age story of barfing trees and talking spoons. Vella Tartine and Shay Volta are two teenagers in strangely similar situations, but radically different worlds. Players can freely switch between the characters and their individual stories, helping them take control of their own lives, and dealing with the unexpected adventures that follow. The game also features an original orchestral soundtrack plus an all-star vocal cast, including Elijah Wood, Jennifer Hale, and Jack Black.
