If you've been holding out for a physical release of Double Fine's Grim Fandango remaster on the Switch, you're in luck.
The Xbox game studio is teaming up with iam8bit to release a hard copy of the game on Nintendo's hybrid system and pre-orders are now open. This 'exclusive edition' will set you back $34.99 USD (or your regional equivalent) and comes with a reversible cover, sleeve cover, golden train ticket, and matchbook notebook.
When the game made its digital debut on the Nintendo Switch in 2018, we praised it - stating how it was still one of the greatest adventure games ever made.
Is this one you'll be adding to your collection? Drop a comment down below.
You are not pointin' n clicking in that game!
Jokes aside, nice Game, even if i love Monkey Island, i never got my Fingers on that Game until a few Years ago.
This is a fun game full of great characters. I'll have to get this 1 again!
This was one of my favorites when it first came out. Love this game. It’s been a while since I last replayed it, hopefully the library gets it for a quick play through.
@Azuris I haven't played this remaster, but I think it added in point-and-click controls. Or you can stick with the OG tank controls.
Nice, I may take a second dip at it then.
Definitely grabbing it
I love it. Great that it is getting another round of attention, replaying it on Switch was great fun.
Sadly their shipping to Europe is crazy expensive :/ Abandoned my order last second.
Way too late. Certainly you can't buy any game from the eShop without fearing that one day it might be released physically
@NintendoWife I know the feeling but I plunged 18$ for that shipping + tax
Yes I can hear you Grim Fandango!
I think I bought this for about £2.49 on a sale… and still haven’t played it.
Is this playable without a guide?
I wanted to play this game ever since its release but never got around to it. glad its getting a physical release
Would rather they bring the Psychonauts games to the Switch.
The reason I ducked out of the Disco Elysium SE (which was already $250) was that Iam8bit wanted $90 dollars for shipping to Sweden.
I've tried to get in to this take on 4 separate occasions and had to drop it due to the obtuse puzzles. Refusing to use a guide
Enjoyed when I played it but had to put it down at some point because it became impossible to figure things out in this game without a guide and ironically following a guide makes the game feel unrewarding.
@GerBearNy I was just about to say I haven't played it since it was brand new on PC and I've forgotten almost everything about it, so it's time to double dip!
@jobvd Yes it is, thankfully a lot of the puzzles aren't as obtuse as other lucas arts adventures (not that I mind that I played and loved them all), but you can still get stuck on some.
The added feature that makes it lot more playable without a guide is the highlights. You can press a button and everything on the screen that you can interact with becomes highlighted. Makes it a lot easier to navigate.
One of the best story games of all time. Lots of film noir references also (Casablanca being the most obvious).
