Turok, a series based on comic book franchise is finally making its return to Nintendo platform with remasters on Switch. Turok: Dinosaur Hunter released over 20 years ago on Nintendo 64 with a historical debut and still has a big fan base.
The remasters come with audio, graphical, and visual enhancements done via “new visual engine”. There are also some new features included. In case you don’t know, the game involves different heavily equipped dinosaur enemies, traps, puzzle and some Aliens. You can battle against them using the 14 weapons ranging from rifles to rocket launchers.
Turok is a series of first-person shooter video games in which the players take the role of a Native American time-traveling warrior against an evil overlord campaigner trying to conquer the universe. The game’s description is ripped back from the 1990s.
The Lost Land…
A world where time has no meaning – and evil knows no bounds. Torn from a world long gone, the time traveling warrior Turok has found himself thrust into a savage land torn by conflict. An evil overlord known as ‘The Campaigner’ seeks to shred the fabric of time and rule the universe using an ancient artifact known as ‘The Chronoscepter’.
The Chronoscepter was shattered thousands of years ago in an effort to keep it from falling into evil hands. The Campaigner has constructed a massive focusing array which he plans to use to magnify and pervert the power of the Chronoscepter in order to shatter the barriers between the ages and rule the universe. Turok has vowed to find the eight pieces of the Chronoscepter spread throughout the Lost Land and put an end to The Campaigner’s evil plot.
The game is now listed by Nintendo on eShop. 1997’s Turok: Dinosaur Hunter is going to cost you $19.99 and arrives on March 18, 2019. Turok 2: Seeds of Evil will arrive sometime later on Switch and is expected to cost the same as on other platforms. Seeds of Evil is said to arrive soon and the developer has already confirmed the concerned fans via Discord.
It’s not the first time that the game is being remastered as it’s already available on current-gen hardware including Xbox One and PC. We are likely to get the bundle of both games sometime in the future which costs $29.99 on Xbox One.
Nightdive Studios is the publisher and developer of the upcoming port. It’s the same studio that’s working on the highly anticipated System Shock remake.
If you are a fan, then it’s your chance for another nostalgic trip and what could be better than to play it on the go.
