In December 2001, the franchise of Dungeons & Dragons received a video game for PlayStation 2 located on the western coast of the Forgotten Realms, Baldur’s Gate: Dark Alliance. The following year it would arrive on Xbox and GameCube, followed by GBA a couple of years later. This first time on home consoles it was very well received by fans of the role-playing game.
Without much hype, this classic has now been released for PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X | S consoles. For its part, the Nintendo Switch version takes a bit longer, but that wasn’t the plan
Through Twitter, Black Isle Studios published a small statement acknowledging the problem in the Nintendo Switch eShop due to unforeseen causes, confirming the launch of Baldur’s Gate: Dark Alliance on Switch for a few days. “We are incredibly sorry for this and are working hard to remedy it as quickly as possible.”
This relaunch of Baldur’s Gate: Dark Alliance includes high resolution graphics but the same gameplay ‘hack and slash’ / acclaimed RPG from the original. As expected, it is also possible to enjoy the adventure in a local cooperative, a key piece of the taste for Dark Alliance
