And in a weird turn of events they’ve used Kingdoms of Amalur’s original Twitter account to do it, the one whose last tweet before today was on May 23, 2012 quoting Curt Schilling about how well the game was selling.
THQ Nordic purchased the rights to Kingdoms of Amalur back in September 2018, so none of the original creators, or those hurt most by 38 Studios’ closure, are likely to benefit at all from the remaster.
Kingdoms of Amalur was one of the more decent role-playing games of the last console generation that wasn’t made by Square Enix, Bethesda, or one of the other publishers known for excelling in the genre.
It’s not clear if the remaster is also coming to other platforms, but you can get an idea of the game’s new look from some of the screenshots.
A new listing on the Microsoft store has revealed a remaster of the 2012 action-RPG Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning coming August 18.
