ArtStation Filled With Stunning Concept Artwork of Control

Recently, a number of artists involved in Control's look have shared their behind-the-scenes work with the community on ArtStation.

Some were involved with the project from the development side and based at Remedy, whereas others worked for studios that provided outsourced artwork and models. A few were also recruited as freelancers to work on additional content such as the dynamic PS4 themes.

There are dozens of gorgeous pieces of artwork ranging from initial concept artwork, promotional art, character designs, costume designs, and so much more! I'm seriously in awe of the work, so if you haven't seen the work so far, definitely make sure to check out the incredible work on Art Station, HERE

Rumour: Alan Wake Coming To Nintendo Switch

It's been sixteen years since a Remedy game has been ported to a Nintendo device, but that may change soon if a recent rumour is to be believed!

A number of platform-dedicated websites including Nintendo LifeMy Nintendo NewsGoNintendo, and Nintendo Enthusiast, plus other gaming media, Play Crazy GameSegment NextGame Revolution and more have reported on the rumour that Alan Wake could be making an appearance on the Nintendo Switch in the near future. Which is exciting news if true!

The rumour first originated when Doctre81, who had previously found evidence pointing to a port of Witcher 3 on Switch prior to its announcement, discovered a mention on LinkedIn talking about an action-adventure remake in development for the Switch.

The company in question was Virtuos, who has recently worked on ports of The Outer Worlds and LA Noire for Switch. Interestingly the team has also had a close working relationship with Alan Wake's publisher and Quantum Break IP owner, Microsoft Studios.

While originally holding console exclusivity rights for Alan Wake, Remedy reacquired them from Microsoft this July. The transition now allows Remedy to bring Alan Wake to another console such as the PlayStation 4 or Switch, a topic which has sparked a number of theories in the media.

As Remedy has a long-lasting policy of not commenting on rumours, and as Alan Wake isn't a Virtuos IP, we're unlikely to hear anything for a while, but we hope it is true and will keep you up to date on any related news.

Control Makes Appearance at Tokyo Game Show Ahead of December Launch [Plus Interviews]

Remedy's Communications Director was at Tokyo Game Show this week, to talk about Control in its lead up to its launch in Japan later this year. Naturally, the fact that Hideo Kojima's upcoming game, Death Stranding, was at the event was completely and utterly coincidental, although it was nice to see him squeeze in a studio visit while he was in town.

Tokyo Game Show is a two-day event which was held between 12-15th September (the weekdays being exclusive to press with the weekend open to the public). It was located at the Makuhari Messe, with the event held the Mihama-ku ward in Chiba city, just outside of Tokyo. With an estimated visitor count of 250,000 and a projected booth count of 2,000 with 655 exhibitors, the show was one to look out for, particularly if you were fans of Death Stranding or Final Fantasy VII.

As Remedy's latest game, Control, will be launching in Japan on December 12th, the developers made an appearance to kickstart a new localised promotional campaign. At the event, Thomas Puha (Communications Director) spoke to IGN Japan live on their TGS broadcast (below) in a lengthy thirty-minute interview and sat down with media including 4gamer, Famitsu, Game Spark, Ascii, and  Game Watch.

Remedy's latest game, Control, will be launching in Japan on December 12th in collaboration with local publisher, Marvelous.
