Kalypso is releasing a HD remaster of the real-time tactical game Commandos 2 on the Nintendo Switch next month.
This title was originally released on PC in 2001 and sees you take control of an elite group of Allied commandos as they go behind enemy lines during World War II to complete a series of notoriously demanding missions. In order to succeed, you’ll have to make use of the commandos’ unique skill sets.
The remaster arrived on PC at the start of the year and followed with an Xbox One and PS4 release in September. It includes revamped tutorials, campaign missions, and optimised support for both the Switch Joy-Cons and Pro Controller. According to Eurogamer, this version was also under fire from some fans for removing certain features and “extreme political symbols“.
“Relive the real-time tactics masterpiece that defined the genre like no other: Originally developed by the legendary Pyro Studios, Commandos 2 – HD Remaster is a true homage to one of gaming’s most celebrated masterpieces. Experience Commandos 2 Men of Courage like never before in high definition with reworked controls, UI and tutorial. Take control of an elite group of commandos who must venture deep into enemy territory and utilize their combined expertise to complete a series of notoriously demanding missions set in World War II. Go covert into various environments based on authentic World War II locations and lead your team of commandos against overwhelming odds, operate covertly and turn the tide of war.”
This title will be released on the Switch in digital and physical form on 4th December. Did you play this classic back in the day? Will you be returning to it on the Nintendo Switch? Comment down below.
