[Review] Risen

Risen review

System: Switch
Release date: January 24, 2023
Developer: Piranha Bytes
Publisher: THQ Nordic

Risen is a peculiar beast. This action RPG originally graced our consoles back in 2009, where it served as something of an amalgamation of various different western franchises. It featured moral conundrums akin to Mass Effect, a lush open world reminiscent of Fable, and systems that wouldn’t seem out of place in an Elder Scrolls title. The game has garnered a bit of a cult following across the community since its original release (and the release of its two sequels). With Risen’s arrival on Switch – along with the measured benefit of hindsight – have THQ Nordic and Piranha Bytes graced us with a hidden RPG gem? Or has age diminished the game’s quirky, ethereal appeal?

Risen trailer

THQ Nordic published Risen on Switch today, and we now have a look at the game on Nintendo’s console via a new trailer. This marks the first time the title is appearing on a Nintendo system.

Here’s some information about the game:

Risen Switch

THQ Nordic has made it official that Risen is seeing release on Switch. The title is due out on January 24, 2023.

A port was essentially leaked by a USK rating earlier this year. THQ Nordic and developer Piranha Bytes are now bringing back the game, a fantasy-based action RPG, that first launched in 2009.


THQ Nordic appears to be preparing a re-release of Risen, and a Switch version could be in the cards.

A rating for the title has now surfaced from USK, the official ratings board in Germany. Switch has its own classification, but no further information is provided on the page.
