Back in February this year, we reported on Beamdog and Skybound Games partnership and their plans to bring Baldur’s Gate and other Dungeon & Dragons titles to the Nintendo Switch. Skybound games said that there was more information to come and now they have delivered.
Along with a new trailer, five games will be bundled into three packs and be available both digitally and physically later this year. The Buldur’s Gate Enhanced Edition and Planescape: Torment / Icewind Dale Enhanced Edition will release on September 27th. Neverwinter Nights: Enhanced Edition will release a few months later on December 6th.
We have an overview of each ‘Enhanced Edition’ below as well as the trailer.
- The Baldur’s Gate: Enhanced Edition Pack: Celebrating the series’ 20th anniversary, the original Baldur’s Gate: Enhanced Edition and its sequel, Baldur’s Gate II: Enhanced Edition, return with all DLC and restored quest content, as well as the Baldur’s Gate: Siege of Dragonspear expansion, featuring new original content developed by Beamdog to bridge the two games.
- Planescape: Torment: Enhanced Edition / Icewind Dale Enhanced Edition: Two must-play games and all their DLC in one package – the chilling Icewind Dale: Enhanced Edition, plus its expansions, and the enhanced edition of 1999’s RPG of the Year, Planescape: Torment.
- Neverwinter Nights: Enhanced Edition: The 2002 Computer RPG of the Year and all its DLC deliver 10 standalone D&D-based adventures featuring co-op and online multiplayer.
