• Before releasing on other consoles and outlets, "Crysis Remastered" will first drop on the Nintendo Switch 
  • After leaked footage arrived on YouTube met negative feedback from fans, developer Crytek instead tweaked the game further rather than rush it
  • Originally released in 2007, the original "Crysis" saw military protagonists in "Nanosuits" that enhanced their speed, strength, defense, and cloaking abilities

First-person shooter “Crysis Remastered” is all set for release on several platforms, but the Nintendo Switch will be the first to receive it.

The game was announced on Twitter back in April and was set to be released on PS4, PC, Xbox One and Switch with overhauled graphics and the famous Nanosuit reappearing in the modern gaming era. Things took a turn, however, when footage of the remaster leaked on YouTube and was met a wave of negative feedback from fans, reports Pocket-lint.

Rather than insist on what they already had though, German developer Crytek instead took that feedback and announced it was delaying “Crysis Remastered” in order to polish the game. The company stated that: "This extra time until release will allow us to get ‘Crysis Remastered’ up to the PC- and console-breaking standard you've come to expect from ‘Crysis’ games..."

Originally released in 2007, “Crysis” revolved around a group of military protagonists with technologically advanced suits of armor that gave them enhanced strength, speed, defense, and cloaking abilities.

These “Nanosuits” that the protagonists wore allowed them to face off against hostile North Korean soldiers, heavily armed mercenaries, and a race of technologically advanced aliens known as the Ceph, who arrived on Earth millions of years ago but have recently been awakened.

The Nanosuit's "armor mode" enhances the suit's ability to withstand bullet and shrapnel impacts, "strength mode" greatly enhances the wearer's physical strength, to the point of being able to punch cars through the air; while "speed mode" allows the wearer to run and act extremely fast. Lastly, "cloak mode" activates the suit's optical cloaking device that makes the wearer near-invisible.

Pocket-lint originally assumed that the early Switch release was because it was already as good as it could be on the Nintendo console, but Crytek should be able to get more out of the console and PC versions.

Now though, Crytek has teased a taste of the improved physics that will be included in the Switch version with destructible environments and flexible trees.

Although the clip is fairly short, it gives an impressive tease of what's to come. It also shows how far things have come since the original hardware-intensive “Crysis” released 13 years ago. Naturally, fans are keeping their fingers crossed that “Crysis Remastered” can live up to the high standards set by the first game.

'Crysis Remastered' is officially coming to PC, Xbox One, and PlayStation 4 with dramatically updated visuals.
