In partnership with developer and publisher Apogee Entertainment, New Blood Entertainment and Nightdive Studios, the 1995 classic FPS Rise of the Trio will be re-released on Switch with a huge amount of new features and improvements.
Rise of the Triad: Ludicrous Edition is considered the final version of the hit FPS game and is currently being prepared for a ‘early 2023’ release on Nintendo Switch. It will boast visual and performance enhancements, along with an updated HUD and user interface, a brand new level editor, and multiple tracks.
Scott Miller, founder of Apogee Entertainment, had some positive comments to celebrate the announcement:
“From its fated beginnings as a sequel to Wolfenstein 3D Franchising, Rise of the Trio retains many of the Wolf-ish ideas, like the art style and run-n-gun gameplay. It’s a miracle to see a game Apogee created in the mid-’90s find new life in a generation later, in its best form. Nightdive used Excalibat to knock it out of the park! “
In addition to the digital launch, Nightdive Studios will also partner with Limited Run Games to launch the physical version of Rise of the Triad: Ludicrous Edition, with both a standard edition and a collectible edition for multiple platforms. More details on this will be revealed in the near future.
