The story of the Fateless One returns in the newly remastered Kingdoms of Amalur: Re-Reckoning, now available on the Nintendo Switch! While this remaster was made available on the PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One back in 2020, this new Nintendo Switch port is a perfect fit into the Nintendo eshop arsenal for $39.99.
Originally released back in 2012 on PC, PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360, this action-RPG is the perfect candidate for a remaster nearly a decade later. Not to mention, this game comes with three DLC’s: The Teeth of Naros, Legend of Dead Kel and Weapons and Armor bundles.
In addition, THQ Nordic confirmed plans for the adventures in Amalur to continue later this year with the brand new Kingdoms of Amalur expansion: Fatesworn.
Set in the Faelands within the Kingdoms of Amalur itself, players assume the role of the “Fateless One,” a mortal who had died before the game takes place and was brought back to life in an experimental fashion for the first time. Upon awakening, however, the Fateless One quickly learns that the new world they’ve been brought into has been ravaged by a brutal war. Now responsible for uncovering the secrets behind their own immortality in a sprawling world, the Fateless One sets out on a journey to find the truth.
