The upcoming re-release of Doom 64 appears to be more than just a simple port. As one of the big highlights, a new chapter will be included.

Senior developer James Haley told USgamer in a recent interview:

Nightdive Studios has the rights to a number of classic games. We’ve seen that with Turok and Turok 2, both of which are now on Switch. Shadow Man, Acclaim’s action-adventure title from two decades ago, could be next.

One fan asked Nightdive on Twitter about the possibility of bringing Shadow Man to Switch. The company’s response was short but effective: it is “possible,” CEO Stephen Kick said.

Turok fans are in for a treat today, as Limited Run Games has opened pre-orders for the physical versions of Turok and Turok II on Switch. Collectors editions are even up for grabs.

They include the following items:

Turok 2: Seeds of Evil

The N64 classic Turok 2 arrives on Switch today. However, a notable feature from the shooter isn’t included. Sadly, multiplayer isn’t anywhere to be found.

GameXplain reached out to Nightdive to inquire about why the feature is missing. In a statement, the company said:
