Crimsonland, wonderful cult classic arena shooter 10tons is built on, is coming to Switch next Friday, November 24th. The game is priced $13.99 USD (€13.99 EUR).

Originally released in 2003 and remastered in 2014 (we’re talking about the remastered here), it still hasn’t been matched in the classic Survival mode’s intense epicness.

We remastered the game in 2014, and have been working on the remaster ever since. It’s amazing to be able to bring the best ever version of the game to Switch!” says Tero Alatalo, CEO of 10tons Ltd.
