Kingdoms of Amalur coming to Switch in March

The Re-Reckoning is upon Switch gamers! Well, almost. THQ Nordic’s reinvigorated RPG epic Kingdoms of Amalur: Re-Reckoning hits in March.

A grand adventure

Kingdoms of Amalur has something of an interesting history. Released to some fanfare years ago, the game was unable to save its original developer. They ran into some legal issues, and eventually folded. But that wasn’t the end of this story.

Picked up by THQ Nordic, Kingdoms of Amalur was brought back to life in the Re-Reckoning edition. Essentially a remastered version of the original, Kingdoms of Amalur: Re-Reckoning hit consoles just last year.

And as of the coming March, it’ll be on the Switch as well.
