Remnant: From the Ashes is headed for Nintendo Switch

Remnant From The Ashes

The co-op horror shooter is making its way to the Switch

Gunfire Games’ Remnant: From the Ashes is making its way to a new platform on the Nintendo Switch. The co-op horror action game is coming to Nintendo’s handheld sometime soon.

The survival horror-inspired co-op shooter first arrived in 2019, pitting solo players or teams against a horde of monstrosities in a decrepit urban landscape. Now, Gunfire Games is bringing the action to a handheld format, alongside THQ Nordic.

No release date has been set yet. A sequel to Remnant, currently dubbed Remnant 2, was revealed at The Game Awards 2022. The new Remnant title is targeting a 2023 launch, and will be headed to PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X|S, and PC, but no Switch.

Rise from the ashes

It’s a bit of a surprise, but certainly not an unwelcome one. Remnant: From the Ashes has always been talked up by those I know who have played it, and another platform for the co-op action game certainly seems like a good thing.

In our review from the game’s launch, it does assert that while Remnant does take a while to get it going, it does eventually let it rip. The randomization offers a bit of variety to each run, and the urban-apocalyptic world is something special altogether, like a mix between Metro and Eldritch horror.

Maybe the game will find another audience to build up on the Switch, just in time to tee them up for the sequel. We’ll keep an eye out for more to come on Remnant: From the Ashes‘ Switch port, and how soon it will be arriving.
