Square Enix Collective has revealed that the 2000 PlayStation title Fear Effect is being remastered for Switch, PC, PS4 and Xbox One next year.

French studio Sushee - which is also responsible for the forthcoming Fear Effect Sedna - is handling development duties in conjunction with Polish publisher Forever Entertainment.

Benjamin Anseaume, founder of Sushee, had this to say about the annoucement of Fear Effect Reinvented:

As support for Fear Effect Sedna quickly built up steam, we realised how much love Fear Effect as a franchise still had amongst gamers. At the same time, we realised that as well as offering established fans something new with Sedna, it would be great to introduce fresh players to Fear Effect by remaking that first great adventure. Fear Effect Reinvented will capture the same spirit and atmosphere as the original game, but it’ll bring it into the present with drastically improved visuals, tweaked controls and other exciting extras.

Fear not, however. Those original fixed camera angles will remain in place, albeit playing host to some brand new high-definition visuals.

Were you a fan of the original Fear Effect? Did you back Fear Effect Sedna on Kickstarter? Are you looking forward to playing this remake on Switch? Leave a comment to tell us.
