Initially announced earlier this year, the two remasters will be launching not only on Switch, but also on Xbox One and PS4. Players take on the role of Rayne, a half-vampire femme fatale who finds herself "travelling the world to foil Nazi plans, battle supernatural threats, and uncover more about her vampiric heritage."
Of course, Nintendo fans might remember that the first of these two games launched on GameCube back in the day, and BloodRayne Betrayal: Fresh Bites also launched on Switch just last month. With that and these two remasters on the way, it's definitely not a bad time to be a BloodRayne fan.
"Featuring a unique protagonist, fast-action combat, superhuman powers, and a globe-spanning storyline, BloodRayne and BloodRayne 2 offer a dynamic and visceral gameplay experience. Beloved by fans and critics alike, BloodRayne became a true cross-media phenomenon, spanning games, comics, and films across the early 2000s."
Here's a feature list:
- Upscaled cinematic videos
- Improvements to lighting at the engine level, plus fully reprocessed lighting data
- Engine improvements to support uncompressed original textures
- Improvements to effects such as reflections, water, fog, and shadows
- Localizations include:
--- BloodRayne: Voiced audio and localized text for English, French, Italian, Japanese, Russian, and Spanish.
--- BloodRayne 2: Voiced audio in English and Russian. Localized text for English, French, German, Italian, Russian, and Spanish.
Both games will be available on the Nintendo eShop from that 18th November date, but physical editions are also headed our way thanks to Limited Run Games.
Will you be checking these remasters out next month? There's an unusual amount of vampire news today, huh?
