Prediction: Remaster Inbound

36 posts in this topic

IGN Article where they interview Reinhard Pollice, THQNordic's business & product development director: https://www.ign.com/articles/2018/10/29/thq-nordic-bought-my-teenage-years-a-so-what-are-they-going-to-do-with-them

 

Interesting take-aways:

 

"Nordic sees remastering games as a “first step” for the way it wants to handle its acquisitions. The next step could differ wildly depending on the franchise..." 

 

and 

 

In the case of newly-acquired Kingdoms of Amalur, THQ Nordic wasn’t even aware of how many fans it had on its hands until the feverish reception to it buying the IP.

“It's always an interesting challenge to learn about that and find out about what's important for a specific group of people”, Pollice enthuses.

 

Although EA still retains the publishing rights to KoA, I find it very likely that THQNordic can persuade them to sign up for a new deal for a current gen remaster. 

 

Anyways, all speculation if it will ever come but I think the odds are very good. What do you all think?

I don't see why they would even buy it if they weren't planning on using it. And remasters are easy money. So I'm sure it'll happen.

THQNordic certainly has the resources and track record to remaster this, but it's likely going to heavily depend on whether EA can/will block them

I definitely see them doing this and I hope they do since I've wanted to play this game for quite some time.

I hope they do. Would love to get the 100% a second time (without having to order the JP version).

Amalur was the only open world RPG I've had fun with and it's mainly because off the more active combat and toned down leveling system.

That and it was very forgiving when it came to weapon and armor drops...always relative to your active class...

I hope so. I really enjoyed it.

Oh and another thing is the fact any build is viable and even has special things for hybrid classes. My first playthrough I did daggers/chakrams and wore heavy armor and had a blast. Even did so on hard.

Chakrams are my absolute favorite...Best fighting weapon ever...

Is this a joke?

I have like a dozen of uncompleted Armor sets.

Still hoping to get my Lunala helm to complete my set, after so many years.

And I've got many pieces duplicated. 

The drop is crazily random.

No, no joke...the armor and weapon drops were almost always tailored to your active class..yeh you might get dupes, but that's beside the point...

I had beaten the game multiple times and reset and changed classes during some of the playthroughs and the drops almost always complemented my classes..

maybe they had changed it in a patch after i had stopped playing it?

I would love for the chance to replay it again on PS4. Hopefully, this means a potential sequel if the remaster sells well.

It's been nearly a year since this announcement with no further news. I guess getting the publishing rights for the original game has proven difficult.

I platinumed/100%'ed both versions on the PS3. I absolutely loved this game, probably my favorite rpg! A remaster and a sequel sure would be awesome.

I would preferred Saints Rows 1 and 2 remastered.

Just because this is happening that doesn't mean that those won't. Most people are very pleased with the work that Sperasoft did with The Third Remastered and are calling for them to do those.

If true, I'll get it. It's a long one but I had a lot of fun with the game. Plus I never got around to getting the DLC which I assume would be included in a remaster. If they fix things hopefully they fix the horrible level scaling.
