Over two decades following the release of Turok on Nintendo 64, it seems that a Switch version will be coming later this month for $19.99 via the Nintendo eShop.
According to the listing on the Nintendo Switch eShop, Turok will retail for $19.99. The game is a remaster where it will have enhancements via a ‘new visual engine’ along with new features for players to experience. The game is currently developed and published by Nightdive Studios.
For gamers who have not heard of Turok before, the game is pretty much about dinosaurs and it’s up to players to take them down using different kind of weapons such as grenade launcher, a plasma pulse rifle, a quad rocker launcher, and an atomic fusion cannon.
If you have a Xbox One or PC, there is already a remaster version of both Turok games. Fortunately, a portable version is always better as it’s always good to play these kind of games anywhere you are.
As for its sequel, Turok 2: Seeds of Evil will be coming to Switch as well and fans will not have to wait for long. According to Nightdive via Discord, the sequel is sure to arrive for Switch but a data is still to be announced.
Here’s an overview of Turok, via Nintendo:
Turok is back and no dinosaur is safe!

The Chronoscepter was shattered thousands of years ago in an effort to keep it from falling into evil hands. The Campaigner has constructed a massive focusing array which he plans to use to magnify and pervert the power of the Chronoscepter in order to shatter the barriers between the ages and rule the universe. Turok has vowed to find the eight pieces of the Chronoscepter spread throughout the Lost Land and put an end to The Campaigner’s evil plot…
Turok will be available for Switch on March 18, 2019 for $19.99.
