From the mind that has no chance of making it to Cooperstown.

One of 2018's oddest business deals is finally paying off for Switch owners.

Kingdoms of Amalur: Re-Reckoning, the re-release of the 2012 western RPG, will come to Switch on March 16. The remade version launched on PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One last year.

The Re-Reckoning version is published by THQ Nordic, who acquired the publishing rights from Electronic Arts in a deal announced in September of 2018. Originally developed by Big Huge Games, Amalur was meant to lead into a massively multiplayer online RPG from 38 Studios, the developer founded by 1993 World Series runner-up Curt Schilling.

I read an article recently that said it's likely he'll get in the Hall of Fame sometime in the next two years. I'll always remember that World Series with him and Randy Johnson for the Diamondbacks. Amazing performances.

Schilling is a garbage person & almost bankrupted the State of Rhode Island.  It also killed Big Huge, who made the excellent RTS Rise of Nations.

That said, I really liked Amalur back in the day.  It's a breezy, junkfood single-player MMO with great combat.  Turn off your brain, go from waypoint to waypoint, and have a lot of fun.  Having it on Switch in handheld mode is the perfect way to play.
