Grim Fandango Remastered comes to Nintendo Switch to celebrate its 20th anniversary

Will you do the Fandango? Yes, you should.


Looking to take a trip down memory lane with one of LucasArts' finest adventure games?

Double Fine has your back, with the release of Grim Fandango Remastered, which is now available on Nintendo Switch today. Originally, the game released in all its remastered glory on PlayStation 4 and PC back in 2015, but now it's finally graced the Switch along with the debut of a 20th anniversary physical edition.

Yes, the launch is in celebration of the game's 20th anniversary, and in the years since it first debuted, it's become a veritable cult classic. It didn't make its grand entrance to much fanfare initially, so it's great to see so many folks enjoying it years later.

Along with a special physical copy of the game that's coming out by way of a special collaboration between iam8bit and Double Fine Productions, the game will be getting a vinyl soundtrack as well. You can pre-order both items now via iam8bit's website. Fittingly, there's also a Grim Fandango art show premiering on November 11 at Day of the Devs at The Midway in San Francisco. After the show concludes, the art will be on offer to view from November 14 through December 31 at PWNshop in Los Angeles.

The real question now that we have Grim Fandango Remastered on Switch is, where are the rest of the excellent LucasArts games on the system? Chop chop!
