Back in 2005, Neon Studios, Kaiko, and Capcom released their action-adventure game Legend of Kay on PS2, to decent reviews and moderate success. Five years later the game was ported to Nintendo DS. Then in 2015, THQ Nordic (known as Nordic Games then) obtained the rights to the game, developed Legend of Kay: Anniversary Edition, and released it on PC, Mac, Linux, PS3, PS4, Wii U, and Xbox 360.

Today, THQ Nordic announced that they are once again reviving the property and bringing Legend of Kay: Anniversary Edition to Nintendo Switch later this year. THQ Nordic says it is bringing the game to Nintendo Switch as part of its “strategy of making the game available to players of all kinds of platforms,” but it also makes sense to port the game to the Switch as games of its style do well on Nintendo platforms, and the Nintendo Switch has proven to be a runaway success.

Launching Legend of Kay: Anniversary Edition on Nintendo Switch also means that the game will be available on ten different platforms. For those wondering what is special about the Anniversary Edition, this remastered version of Legend of Kay includes new high-resolution and detailed textures and character models, better rendering techniques, and surround sound support to make the game look and sound better.
