Shrunken Stealth Action
Kalypso Media has announced that Yippee Entertainment’s remaster of classic PC stealth title Commandos 2 will come crawling through the bushes and onto Nintendo Switch on December 4, following on from its previous release on PS4, PC, and Xbox One.
Commandos 2 HD Remaster features all of the strategic action from Pyro Studios’ 2001 release Commandos 2: Men of Courage, revamped with improved visuals, a new interface, and an overhauled control scheme. Players guide a small squad of military specials on a series of assassination, theft, espionage, and sabotage missions deep in enemy territory.
Outnumbered and outgunned, players must rely on expert planning, on-the-spot adaptation, and each squad member’s various skills in order to pull off the perfect operation and get out from behind enemy lines unharmed. It’s no picnic, and notoriously one of the trickiest and most intense stealth titles ever released. You can check out a new trailer for the Switch release below.
It should be noted that the remaster removes all references to the Nazis, all depictions of the swastika, and all depictions of the Japanese “Imperial Sun” insignia from the campaign. Kalypso Media has stated that it voluntarily took the decision to remove these elements, stating that “We do not want to encourage racism, discrimination or exclusion with our games.”
