XIII remake ‘Weapons’ trailer, Switch version possibly delayed

XIII

Publisher Microids and developer PlayMagic have released a new trailer for the XIII remake introducing the game’s weapons.

The title card at the end of the trailer highlighting the game’s November 10 release across PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC (Steam, GOG) notably lacks mention of the Switch version, suggesting it may no longer be launching alongside other platforms.

Here is an overview of the game, via its Steam page:

About

XIII is a remake of the cult first-person action game that was initially released in 2003. You play as “XIII,” a man without an identity, in a solo campaign with numerous twists and turns. Inspired by the eponymous graphic novel, the game features a completely reinvented and unique cel-shading design. In XIII, players can also take part in fierce multi-player fights.

The country remains in a state of shock following the assassination of President Sheridan. You wake up, wounded and with amnesia, on a deserted beach on the east coast. The only clues as to your identity are a tattoo of the number XIII near your collarbone and a locker key. Even though your memory is failing, you discover that you have the reflexes of a highly trained professional fighter. You set off in search of your past, discovering that you played a role in the murder of the President of the United States of America, and revealing the most astounding conspiracy ever hatched in the country’s history.
