Original article [Tue 18th May, 2021 01:45 BST]: The re-release of Baldur’s Gate: Dark Alliance was very much a game we were looking forward to until for whatever reason it didn’t actually arrive on the Nintendo Switch on the same date as other platforms.
Here we now are a few weeks on still waiting for it to arrive. So, what’s going on? In its latest update on social media, Black Isle Studios has announced it’ll be sharing some more information about the Switch version “first thing tomorrow”.
We guess it’ll be for a new release date, but who really knows at this stage…
As noted in the latest tweet – there have been “issues” with the Switch release and “all parties” have been working hard to fix it. In a follow-up tweet, Black Isle further clarified how certification for the game had passed ages ago and had “no bearing” on the Switch delay.
