XIII Remake Drops On Nintendo Switch This September

Microids has announced that a major update for the game XIII Remake as well as the Nintendo Switch version of the game will be released on 13 September 2022. The game is the remake of the iconic cel-shaded FPS from 2003, and is the adaptation of the five first volumes of the Belgian graphic novel of the same name by artist William Vance and writer Jean Van Hamme.

To achieve the quality standards and offer an optimal gaming experience, Microids decided to entrust the development of XIII Remake to the French studio Tower Five (Lornsword: Winter Chronicle). Hard at work for more than a year on a major update for the PS4, Xbox One and PC versions, the studio has also worked on the multiplayer content as well as the Nintendo Switch port of the game. This update, the multiplayer content and the Switch version will simultaneously be released on 13 September 2022.

On that date, owners of the PS4, Xbox One and PC versions will receive a free update and enjoy the game as intended. The development studio reworked the entire game from the Art Direction to the AI and added numerous technical improvements. Finally, Tower Five implemented the highly awaited online multiplayer mode for up to 13 players.

Stéphane Longeard, CEO de Microids, said:

“We are fully aware and terribly sorry that the initial launch of XIII Remake on PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC 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. Tower Five worked with us in the past, notably on the great port of Agatha Christie: The ABC Murders on Nintendo Switch.

We really wanted to take the time to fix the game and offer owners of XIII Remake a free update paying the best possible tribute to the original game we all love. The Nintendo Switch version of the game will of course benefit from all the work done to improve the game as well as the multiplayer mode, which will mark the end of the game’s development.

We can’t wait for players to put their hands on this improved version of the game and (re)discover the classic adventures of Agent XIII, as soon as it’s released after the Summer.”

XIII Remake will launch on 13 September 2022 on Nintendo Switch. The free major update will be available the same day for the PS4, Xbox One and PC versions.
