Turok - Nintendo Switch

Nightdive Studios are bringing the remastered version of Turok to Nintendo Switch.

Originally released in 1997, Turok: Dinosaur Hunter was an early Nintendo 64 hit from the now-defunct video game publisher, Acclaim. The game mostly remembered for hiding its draw distance in the soupiest of fogs, but it was a popular FPS in its day, and spawned multiple sequels.

Nightdive grabbed the rights to Turok a few years ago, and released it on Steam in 2017, and Xbox One the following year. The Nintendo Switch edition – which will hit the eShop on March 18 – looks to be cut from the same cloth, with slightly polished graphics to accommodate modern HD widescreen displays. Apart from that, the game should look pretty much as you remember. Which is to say, not amazing.

Speaking about the game at the time of its PC rerelease, Nightdive CEO Stephen Kick said:

“When Turok: Dinosaur Hunter was first released it was nothing short of revolutionary. To that point, no game had ever offered the combination of graphics and an open world environment that Turok featured. We are very excited to have had the opportunity to bring this great franchise back to life and to be able to share this great title with today’s gaming audience.”

The much improved sequel, Turok 2: Seeds of Evil, was also updated for Xbox and PC, and is set to come to Switch later this year.
