Today, iam8bit is proud to announce the launch of the Day of the Dead and noir-inspired, 1998 adventure game, Grim Fandango Remastered, with an all-new physical edition for Nintendo Switch – available now for purchase in North America with shipping worldwide.
LucasArts’ Grim Fandango surprised and delighted a generation of adventure-game fans with its original PC launch as players journeyed into a colorful world filled with lively characters, intriguing puzzles, and plenty of bureaucracy. With the launch of the physical remastered edition, gamers can enjoy an updated experience playing as the skeletal hero Manny Calavera in Tim Schafer’s vision of the afterlife experience, featuring gorgeous new lighting and enhanced visuals. Enjoy a tale of redemption and loyalty, as Manny guides a lost soul through a perilous series of challenges — while stumbling upon some unforgettable laugh-out-loud situations.
This marks the first time that Grim Fandango Remastered is available as a physical release on Nintendo Switch. Fans can swap between its original 1998 presentation and Double Fine’s 2015 remaster at the press of a button. The updated version includes repainted, hi-res character textures and dynamic lighting — accompanied by a re-recorded soundtrack featuring a live orchestra. Regardless of what players choose, they’ll be embarking on an adventure that stands the test of time.
