Legend Of Kay Anniversary Coming To Switch On May 29

We’ve known that Legend of Kay Anniversary was coming to the Switch, but now we know when: May 29, 2018. The game will be available on the eShop and in cartridge form. This one’s been around on most platforms for years now, but if you somehow missed it or really want to play it on the go, then the Switch version should be perfect.



Be excited for May 29th, as this marks the arrival of the quircky Action-RPG Legend of Kay on Nintendo Switch.

Since its initial release on the PS2™, Legend of Kay has been well received by both critics and consumers alike and was subsequently ported to the Nintendo DS™. 10 years later, the game has been remastered and ported to PC/Mac/Linux, PS3™, Xbox 360 and PS4™ and Wii U™ under the name Legend of Kay Anniversary.

As Legend of Kay’s timeless style and genre haven’t lost their appeal – and THQ Nordic wants to continue its strategy of making the game available to players of all kinds of platforms – it will be coming to Nintendo’s latest console, Nintendo Switch on May 29th.
