Baldur’s Gate: Dark Alliance’s re-release on the Switch has been delayed a few days

Due to “unforeseen issues”

There’s a new Dungeons & Dragons: Dark Alliance on the way, and today, Black Isle and Interplay have released a re-release of the classic Baldur’s Gate variation of Dark Alliance. It’s out now on PlayStation 4, PS5, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X|S, but the Nintendo Switch version has hit a snag.

On Twitter, Black Isle Studios posted a statement saying that “due to unforeseen issues,” it would be delaying Baldur’s Gate: Dark Alliance‘s Switch launch for a few days. “We’re incredibly sorry about this and we’re working hard to remedy this as quickly as possible.”

The re-release of Baldur’s Gate: Dark Alliance has higher resolution graphics, though it will still have the classic hack-and-slash action of the original. It will also have the ability to adventure with a friend, a key piece of the original Dark Alliance‘s appeal.

The only thing better than dungeon crawling and looting is doing so with a pal. Hopefully the Switch version snafu can get fixed up soon.
