Double Fine Productions announced Grim Fandango Remastered is coming to the Nintendo Switch. A release date was not revealed.

Here is an overview of the game:

Something’s rotten in the land of the dead, and you’re being played for a sucker. Meet Manny Calavera, travel agent at the Department of Death. He sells luxury packages to souls on their four-year journey to eternal rest. But there’s trouble in paradise. Help Manny untangle himself from a conspiracy that threatens his very salvation.

One of the most acclaimed adventure games of all time is now back, better than ever. Grim Fandango‘s epic story of four years in the life (or death) of Manny Calavera, travel agent to the dead, has been remastered to look, sound, and control even better than when it won GameSpot’s Game of the Year award upon its original launch. Grim Fandango still stands as a classic of the genre, with unforgettable characters and unique combination of film noir and Mexican folklore.

Remastered Version Features:

  • Repainted, hi-res character textures.
  • New, dynamic lighting.
  • Classic score re-recorded with a full live orchestra.
  • Over two hours of exclusive developer commentary.
  • Concept art browser.

This is really a A+ Adventure. Everyone who is even remotely interested in that genre should play this game, it's really something special.

I found some of the puzzles to be....Insane. Total crapshoot as to whether the were logical or not. Don't get me wrong, I was enjoying it ( until I obliterated my save data by accident ), but was taken aback by a few. Like "How could I EVER figure that out?"

At the time, you had to think around corners a lot to figure out puzzles. Hence why I find most adventure games these days so boringly simple...

Nice. I actually never played Grim Fandango, although I liked the LucasArt adventures. Time to fix that.

Same here, can't wait for it
