2004 sequel to the original Baldur’s Gate: The Dark Alliance – which saw a remastered release on Switch and other platforms in May 2021 – gets the same treatment; Baldur’s Gate: Dark Alliance 2 “Summer 2022” has begun to be released on Switch and other platforms.
Developer Black Isle Studios teased earlier this year It will come “sooner than you think”. For Nintendo-exclusive players who’ve never had an Xbox or PS2, this will be their first chance to play the action RPG sequel because it originally bypassed Nintendo’s platforms — a disappointment for GameCube owners who enjoyed the original Dark Alliance.
The game features five playable characters and classes across four difficulty levels. Ranging from easy to Intense (Our slash has been added there for Intense tighten).
Support for local co-op play is included, as you can see from this list of features from the official PR teaser:
Whether choosing a barbarian, monk, necromancer, rogue or cleric, players will have to actively battle through hordes of monsters ranging from Hobgoblins, Ghouls, Golems and Dragons while dodging attacks and dodging deadly traps.
Hack your way or cast powerful spells through more than 80 perilous levels
Hidden areas, secret characters and hundreds of items to discover, customize and use
Create unique magical weapons and armor to increase the damage you deal in battle
Conquer hordes of monsters, armies of Hobgoblins, ghouls, Mongols and damned dragons
Disguised single or two-player co-op modes
Four difficulty levels to challenge even the toughest adventurer; “Easy”, “Normal”, “Hard” and “Extreme”.
