Surprise! You might have forgotten that Alan Wake Remastered was quietly announced for the Switch earlier this year, but now you know for sure, because it's out right now.

Alan Wake originally launched as a console exclusive on the Xbox 360 back in May 2010 from developer Remedy Entertainment. After teaming up with publisher Epic Games, Remedy then launched a remastered version of the game in 2021 with revamped visuals and improved performance.

The title now forms the basis of what the studio calls the 'Remedy Connected Universe', with 2019's Control making several references to Alan Wake, including the crossover expansion, AWE. Alan Wake II is also on the way, but is currently only targeted for launch on PS5, Xbox Series X/S, and PC.

Alan Wake Remastered for the Switch contains the main game itself along with the two story expansions, 'The Signal' and 'The Writer'. Alan Wake's American Nightmare is a standalone spin-off title and won't be included in this release.

Alan Wake Remastered is out now on the Switch eShop for $29.99 USD / €29.99 / £24.99. Players can currently get a launch discount of 20% off the list price.
