Turok coming to the Switch on March 18th, 2019

In all of its blocky goodness

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

Turok is back and no dinosaur is safe! When it was first released in 1997, Turok introduced gamers to a world teeming with cunning enemies, traps, puzzles and deadly weapons all within a vast 3D environment ready to explore. Now the classic game has been restored and enhanced with a new visual engine and exciting new features to sink your teeth into!

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...

100% complete with original fog?



Fantastic. All that fog to relive again.

Oh my... I never got far in this game... I was a kid more obsessed with using a gameshark to play with all the weapons... Will be getting this for sure.

I will always remember the mega code for this game lol “NTHGHTHDGDCRTDTRK” or “On the Eighth Day God Created Turok” with the vowels removed :P

Somebody tell Lube! (the podcast crew member)

Anyone know if there will be gyro aiming?
At this point that should be a requirement if you want your first-person shooter to sell on Switch.

I couldn't find anything on that online; guess it depends on how easy it would be the work it into the code on the Switch. The studio working on it, Nightdive, has only 10 devs on its team, and based on my brief research they seem to specialize in buying old code and IPs and remastering/re-releasing it on new machines (tons of cult classics, for example), so it all depends on the code.

I hope these both come out physically at some point. Definitely worth it. Both one and two should fit on a single cartridge but they could easily take one of the smaller carts and sell them individually for a similar price.
