Crysis is a name that will be very familiar to first-person shooter fans, but it’s perhaps not going to be a series very well known to ardent Nintendo supporters. That will soon change as developer Crytek has unveiled Crysis Remastered will be coming to Nintendo Switch! Here’s the announcement Tweet:

Here’s part of what Crytek had to say via its website:

Crysis Remastered will focus on the original game’s single-player campaigns and is slated to contain high-quality textures and improved art assets, an HD texture pack, temporal anti-aliasing, SSDO, SVOGI, state-of-the-art depth fields, new light settings, motion blur, and parallax occlusion mapping, particle effects will also be added where applicable. Further additions such as volumetric fog and shafts of light, software-based ray tracing, and screen space reflections provide the game with a major visual upgrade.

“We are excited to be working on the Crysis franchise again, and to bring all the Crysis fans a remaster worthy of their passion for the game,” said Crytek CEO Avni Yerli. “It’s an exciting opportunity to be able to bring Crysis back to PCs and current consoles – even Nintendo Switch! – so that a whole new generation of players can experience the thrill of a battle in the Nanosuit.”

There’s no firm release date beyond a launch window of this summer. It’s also unclear if this will be an eShop exclusive or if Crysis Remastered will also be getting a physical edition. Once we hear more, we’ll pass it along to you, dear readers.
