‘Alan Wake Remastered’ Nintendo Switch version could be underway, per an alleged document from Brazil’s rating board
The announcement of “Alan Wake Remastered” may be one of the biggest news in the gaming world this fall. However, developer Remedy Entertainment and publisher Epic Games might have more details to reveal. A supposed document from Brazil’s official rating board has listed Nintendo Switch as a platform for the upcoming game.
“Alan Wake Remastered” has been in the rumor mill since summer, but Remedy confirmed the game’s launch just earlier this month. Since then, it has been advertised for PC via Epic Games, PS4, PS5, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X/S. But the remaster could also get a sixth version.

Switch Brasil’s Felipe Lima recently shared a screen-captured image allegedly from Brazil’s Ministry of Justice in charge of decided age-based ratings for games launching in the country. The document cites that “Alan Wake Remastered” is recommended for players under the age of 14 due to horror themes and depictions of violence. But the more surprising detail is the mention of the Nintendo Switch console.
The said document has naturally started speculations that Remedy could also be working on launching “Alan Wake Remastered” on the hybrid portable console. It is worth noting, though, that a quick search on the online portal of Brazil’s Ministry of Justice only lists the five confirmed platforms for the game. So while the Nintendo Switch version cannot be ruled out yet, based on Switch Brasil’s tip, its launch might not happen anytime soon.
“Alan Wake Remastered” is launching more than a decade since the original title was released on Xbox in 2010. This will then mark the first time the game is coming to PlayStation consoles.
Remedy confirmed that the “Alan Wake Remastered” would be the same game in terms of content and story. But fans can expect it to offer a more modern look and features, thanks to the newer gaming systems.
An FAQ page for “Alan Wake Remastered” indicates PS5 and Xbox Series X/S will run the game at 4K / 60 FPS by default. In PS4 Pro and Xbox One, a patch on day one will add the Performance Mode and Quality Mode that target 60 FPS and 30 FPS frame rates, respectively.
However, the game will not support ray tracing on any platform. “Alan Wake Remastered” will be released on Oct. 5 with the base game and “The Signal” and “The Writer” DLCs.
