THQ Nordic Publishing in my microblog unequivocally announced the forthcoming expansion of the list of target platforms for the fantasy role-playing game Risen by German studio Piranha Bytes (Gothic, Elex series).
The tweet posted by THQ Nordic consists of an image listing basic information about the upcoming port: game name (Risen), publisher (THQ Nordic), and platform (Nintendo Switch).
The candid teaser for THQ Nordic was accompanied by the phrase: “The Fire of the Sacred Flame Burns”. There can be no mistake. Sacred Fire is the final gift from the gods to humanity in the world of Risen.
With a new target platform chosen, speculation is that a Switch version of Risen could be announced on tonight’s September 13th episode of Nintendo Direct.
Risen debuted on PC and Xbox 360 in October 2009. In August 2022, the Switch, PS4, and Xbox One editions of the game were given an age rating in Germany, but THQ Nordic has yet to confirm the final two versions.
