THQ Nordic has announced the release of Gothic Classic for the Nintendo Switch. This version of the game is a direct port of the original Gothic game code, with no remastering or remaking involved. The game is set to launch on September 28.
Gothic Classic offers players the opportunity to experience this iconic RPG on a handheld console for the first time. Dive into a dark and immersive adventure that revolutionized roleplaying games. The game has been adapted to ensure great performance, with a user interface and controls that are well-suited for the Switch.
The story takes place in the kingdom of Myrtana, where war is being waged. Orcish hordes have invaded human territory, and the king needs a significant amount of ore to forge enough weapons to defend against the threat. To this end, those who break the law are sentenced to serve in the penal colony of Khorinis, tasked with mining the much-needed ore.
As a player, you find yourself thrown into this prison colony, with your survival depending on forming alliances and navigating the volatile environment. The game offers more than 50 hours of gameplay, a diverse array of weapons and spells, and a unique character development system tied to teachers found throughout the world.
Players will also find themselves in a simulated living world, where NPCs have their own routines of work, sleep, eat, and fight to survive. Additionally, the game presents three different camps, each with its own perspective on the main story, offering players the opportunity to make meaningful choices.
If you’re a fan of the original Gothic game and own a Nintendo Switch, this is your chance to experience this classic RPG on the go. Get ready for a gripping adventure in a world filled with danger and intrigue.
