More On: Kingdoms of Amalur: Re-Reckoning

Kingdoms of Amalur got a very bad rap when it first released. While a lot of the coverage of the game was wrapped up in the legal shenanigans of original development house 38 Studios (and its owner, Curt Schilling), a lot of folks lost track of the fact that Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning is a very cool game. 

Luckily, the franchise-gobbling folks at THQ Nordic have gotten their hands on the game, and have been dropping a remaster of the original title (along with all the DLC) on just about every platform out there. Next up is the Nintendo Switch, which will receive Kingdoms of Amalur Re-Reckoning: Remastered on March 16, 2021.

Regardless of the swirling mess that accompanied it's original release, Kingdoms of Amalur is an amazing title with a ridiculous pedigree. "From the minds of the bestselling author R.A. Salvatore, Spawn creator Todd McFarlane, and Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion lead designer Ken Rolston, comes Kingdoms of Amalur: Re-Reckoning. Remastered with stunning visuals and refined gameplay Re-Reckoning delivers intense, customizable RPG combat inside a sprawling game world. Uncover the secrets of Amalur, from the vibrant city of Rathir to the vast region of Dalentarth to the grim dungeons of the Brigand Hall Caverns. Rescue a world torn apart by a vicious war and control the keys to immortality as the first warrior ever to be resurrected from the grips of death."

If you've never given this game a shot, this is your chance to get in on one of the biggest, most-immersive open world RPGs out there. This game is enormous, so set aside a few weeks for it. 

THQ has also announced that the Kingdoms of Amalur franchise will continue, with a new expansion - Fatesworn - coming later this year.
