A new GamesBeat event is around the corner! Learn more about what comes next. 

THQ Nordic announced today that Kingdoms of Amalur: Re-Reckoning will release for Switch on March 16.

Kingdoms of Amalur first debuted in 2012. The action role-playing game had a fun open world and fast-paced combat, but it wasn’t able to sell enough copies to keep the Kurt Shilling-owned 38 Studios afloat.

THQ Nordic bought the rights to the franchise in 2018 and remastered the game with Re-Reckoning, which came out last September for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC. It was one of our favorite RPGs from 2020.


Three top investment pros open up about what it takes to get your video game funded.

Now that Re-Reckoning is on Switch, Kingdoms of Amalur comes to a Nintendo platform for the first time.
