Nintendo remasters for other consoles aren’t very common, but they exist, like Digital Continue‘s remastered version of 2008 DS tower-defense RPG Lock’s Quest.
Unlike the port of Little King’s Story that brought some performance problems with it, but that was done by a different company and wasn’t published by THQ Nordic, the reinvention of the handheld game looks pretty good and retains all the things that made the original so enjoyable.
The titular hero has to fight against the Clockwork army with the Kingdom army, i.e. he has to build and place various defensive units and buildings in order to get rid of the swarms of enemies sent by Lord Agony who invaded the land. It might not sound like the deepest story, but it’s the gameplay that matters here, a mix of strategy, action and RPG with cute hand-drawn graphics and a lovely soundtrack.
The remastered version has better music, keyboard/mouse as well as gamepad controls, HD graphics, a new map and progression system that unlocks new turrets at specific story plot points, and the Endless Mode. It’s available on PC, PS4 and Xbox One with a launch discount that ends tomorrow, June 6, 5PM UTC.
