Legend of Kay Anniversary Coming to Wii U in Summer 2015

It’s not news that Legend of Kay Anniversary will be coming to the Wii U, as well as other platforms, but this week Nordic Games confirmed that it will be arriving sometime this summer and as a budget release. It’ll be priced between $19.99 and $29.99 depending on the platform, though they haven’t stated yet which price will be for which system.

This remaster of the PS2 game is seemingly an attempt by Nordic Games to test the waters for the brand, checking the market reception with an eye to future releases. The business & product developer for Nordic Games, Reinhard Pollice, had this to say about the upcoming re-release:

Legend of Kay was a true gem on the Playstation 2 platform. Our strategy is to focus on our IPs and make them available to as many players as possible and also on the current generation of consoles. We keep our options open to expand on the Legend of Kay franchise in the future.”

What will we see in this remastered edition? Here’s a handy checklist of all the upgrades that have gone into it:

  • High-resolution textures – new, more detailed character models, modern rendering techniques and crystal-clear surround sound
  • Much higher levels of detail to the environments, even when seen close up
  • A new user interface making the game simpler to use
  • Cut scenes improved – now in HD
  • Achievements have been added
  • Leaderboard – compare your score with your friends’ and compete against the best in the world
  • 60 Frames per seconds for high speed smooth action
  • 25 different levels with over 15 enemy types and epic boss battles
  • 3 different primary weapons (sword/hammer/claws) with distinct combat styles
  • Various mini-games such as wild boar racing, dragon flying and wolf riding

Certainly the budget price tag can’t hurt, so it’ll be intriguing to see what happens when this IP returns to game shelves everywhere.
