Hvis du spillede spil i 90'erne har du sikkert mødt Baldur's Gate, Neverwinter Night og Planescape: Torment, der alle kører efter nogenlunde samme klassiske rollespilsformular. Nu har Beamdog og Skybound Games valgt at gå sammen i et samarbejde om at bringe disse titler og flere til konsoller, heriblandt Switch. Det drejer sig helt præcist om følgende spil:
Beamdog har tidligere lavet blandt andet Baldur's Gate: Enhanced Edition, så de har erfaring med at arbejde med disse klassikere. Spillene står til udgivelse i 2019 uden noget nærmere præcisering af, om de udkommer samtidig eller et ad gangen. Hele pressemeddelelsen kan du læse her:
