'Turok' and 'Turok 2: Seeds of Evil' will be released for Ninentendo switch on March 18. The version has been revamped for the new platform.
Some of the older games that came out really left a mark. Compared to the games produced now, their graphics and quality might not be good enough but they really were super exciting to play. It was recently announced that 'Turok' the dinosaur hunter game will be remastered for Nintendo Switch. The first and second part of the game will be hitting the Nintendo platform by March 18. Thanks to developer Nightdive Studios, these two classic 90s first-person shooters are not restricted to just PC gamers or x-box one gamers anymore. The announcement was made on Nintendo's official website. So far, Nintendo has only announced the arrival of the first game, but the developers released a statement informing fans about the second game being redeveloped for Nintendo as well.
The sequel is pretty goretastic and is a huge hit among PC gamers already. Not just the ones who played the original game back in the 90s but the new generation gamers as well. This doesn't go on to say that Turok: Dinosaur Hunter was any less graphic or brutal. The description given on the website is the one that is present on the box of the original game. However, this seems to be a mistake because the game is said to be remastered for the new platform. The last time the game was remastered by the same developers for X-Box One or for PC, things changed drastically.
The remastered versions seen before were also developed by Nightdive Studios and the newer version was adapted to the 21st century. The remastered version had better graphics and gameplay, newer weapons and equipment, and basically new enhancements for almost everything. The Turok series is based on a comic book about a Native American warrior back in the old days. The warrior is set out to kill dinosaurs and other beasts. The series of comic books was released by Acclaim Comics. The first game of the series was released for the Nintendo 64 platform.
Remastered Versions of ‘Turok’ And ‘Turok 2: Seeds of Evil’ Headed to Nintendo Switch March 18th https://t.co/GW1rswdque— Bloody Disgusting (@BDisgusting) March 7, 2019
Turok: Dinosaur Hunter was a popular first-person shooter game that was released back in the 90s. The first version that came out for Nintendo 64 was well-appreciated by gamers even though the game did have some issues like slowing down or lagging when things got too hectic. It also had a terrible draw distance. It is a series of three games in total - Turok, Turok 2: Seeds of Evil and Turok 3: Shadow of Oblivion. The first game was remastered last year for X-Box One and Windows with the remastered version of the second part following shortly after. The remastered versions were buzzing among people in the gaming communities for a while, especially the old school gamers.
As compared to most modern first-person shooter games, the Turok series is going to seem primitive. The gamers who are used to playing only the newer shooter games might not enjoy it as much. However, you have to see the game as per the time it was released in. In the gaming world, a game released even a few years back might seem ancient in terms of graphics, sounds, gameplay etc. As compared to the other shooter games of the time when Turok was first introduced, it did fairly well. People appreciated the gameplay. Well, that's probably the reason why out of all the other games Turok was chosen to be given a comeback.
The fact that Nintendo is allowing remastered versions of the first two Turok games to appear on the Switch also means we likely won't be seeing Nintendo 64 games being given away to Nintendo Switch Online subscribers anytime soon, as the first game would have been a prime candidate for the service. The first game might seem very simple to the modern gamers but it still is pretty fun to run around and fight off dinosaurs with a really cool range of futuristic weapons to choose from. One thing is for sure, all those who grew up with a Nintendo 64 are definitely going to go back and test the remastered version out. There still are some bullets in their systems waiting to be pumped!
After the news was dropped, fans can't wait to see what the new version of the series has in store.
I always wanted to try these, but until they remastered them, never could due to a lack of 64.— Shane Battams 🎮 (@SteadySphere) January 31, 2019
