Kingdoms Of Amalur Re-Reckoning Release Date For Nintendo Switch Announced With New Trailer

The well-received RPG is coming to Nintendo's console in March.


Following its debut on PS4 and Xbox One in September 2020, THQ Nordic has confirmed that it's launching Kingdoms of Amalur: Re-Reckoning for Nintendo Switch in March.

The HD re-release of the RPG comes to Nintendo Switch on March 16, 2021. The game bundles in three DLC packs, including The Teeth of Naros, Legend of Dead Kel, and Weapons and Armor. Another expansion, Fatesworn, will be released later in 2021.

For now, you can check out the trailer above to see what Kingdoms of Amalur looks like running on Nintendo Switch.

The original Kingdoms of Amalur was released in 2012 to generally positive review scores. The behind-the-scenes story, however, was a different matter. The game was developed by former Boston Red Sox pitcher Curt Schilling's 38 Studios, which went bankrupt and caused a stir with the local government in its home state of Rhode Island.

The game was originally published by Electronic Arts before THQ Nordic bought the rights in 2018. As for Schilling, he has since made a name for himself in the conservative talk show market where he hosts a program on the Howie Carr network and writes for Breitbart.
