Remnant: From the Ashes headed to Nintendo Switch

Update (January 18th): THQ Nordic has announced that Remnant: From the Ashes is also getting a Japanese release (release date TBA). Check out some screenshots below!


THQ Nordic have announced their latest release on Nintendo Switch, and yes, it’s another port! This time, it’s Remnant: From the Ashes, an action RPG with shooting elements originally developed by Gunfire Games.

Here’s the Nintendo Switch announcement trailer:

THQ Nordic does not say when the game will be released on Nintendo Switch, and simply states that it’s coming “soon”. As with most releases from that publisher, it will be available either at retail or on the Nintendo eShop.

Here’s some more details:

Humanity is struggling to survive, but they possess the technology to open portals to other realms and alternate realities. Are you brave enough to travel through these portals to uncover the mystery and take back what’s yours?

Explore dynamically-generated worlds that change each time you play through them. Each of the game’s four unique worlds is filled with monstrous denizens and environments that will provide fresh challenges with each playthrough. Adapt and explore – or die trying. The hostile environments will greet you with tough-as-nails enemies and epic bosses. Slay the monsters, earn experience, grab the loot and upgrade materials to prepare and approach each encounter in dozens of unique ways.

The world has been thrown into chaos by an ancient evil from another dimension. As one of the last remnants of humanity, you must set out alone or alongside up to two other survivors to face down hordes of deadly enemies to try to carve a foothold, rebuild, and retake what was lost.

  • Explore dynamically-generated worlds that change each time you play through them, creating new maps, enemy encounters, quest opportunities, and in-world events
  • Overcome enemies and epic bosses to earn experience, valuable loot and upgrade materials you can use to build a wicked arsenal of weapons, armor, and modifications
  • Team up with up to two other players to increase your chances of survival. Teamwork is necessary to make it through the game’s toughest challenges… and unlock its greatest rewards.

And finally, here’s some screenshots:
