After the physical version was announced for Switch yesterday, the boxart for Crysis Remastered on Switch has emerged. You can check out the design above.

Crysis Remastered is confirmed to be arriving on Switch physically this fall. Best Buy Canada lists a September 28 date, though it’s unclear if that’s just a placeholder.

There is just one other aspect to keep in mind for this physical release. Crysis Remastered Trilogy will be out on Switch later this year, and at least for now, it’ll be digitally only. The physical version of Crysis Remastered on Switch only includes the first game. It’s unclear if and when the other two entries will be distributed in a boxed format on Nintendo’s console.

Following its initial release on the eShop, Crytek has announced that Crysis Remastered is getting a physical release on Switch. All copies will include an art card.

The original Crysis was one of the most technically impressive games on the PC when it debuted back in 2007. At the time, no one would have predicted that it’d be on a Nintendo console, let alone in handheld form. Yet with Crysis Remastered, the series has now come to Switch and you can play the game anywhere you like.
