XIII remake coming to Switch in September
New developer studio has taken over, major patch also coming
Publisher Microids have announced plans to release a major update for the game XIII Remake (2020) as well as the Nintendo Switch version of the game on September 13th 2022.
The game originally released in 2020 by developer PlayMagic Ltd, with poor results. Since then, Microids decided to move the development to the French studio Tower Five (Lornsword: Winter Chronicle). The new development studio reworked the entire game from the Art Direction to the AI and added numerous technical improvements. They also implemented the online multiplayer mode for up to 13 players.
“We are fully aware and terribly sorry that the initial launch of XIII Remake in 2020 did not reach players’ expected quality standards. A bit more than a year ago we took the decision to hire the studio Tower Five to finish the development of the game,” said Stéphane Longeard, CEO de Microids.
XIII Remake will launch September 13th 2022 on Nintendo Switch. The free major update will be available the same day for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC versions, who saw the original release back in 2020.
