Blade Runner Enhanced Edition is coming to Nintendo Switch

Nightdive Studios, known for restoring classic video games such as System Shock and Turok: Dinosaur Hunter, has partnered with production company Alcon Entertainment to restore the 1997 point-and-click adventure title Blade Runner for Nintendo Switch.

Based on Ridley Scott's 1982 cyberpunk noir — but not a direct adaptation of the film — Blade Runner follows detective Ray McCoy as he hunts down renegade replicants, or androids that look remarkably human, in a futuristic version of 2019 Los Angeles. The game's narrative runs tangentially with the events of the film. The game also garnered critical praise and won the inaugural computer adventure game of the year at the Academy of Interactive Arts & Science's first DICE Awards (then known as the Interactive Achievement Awards).
