Information about Video: The problem with remasters in 2021
With each new year, we witness more companies capitalizing on their own legacies, bringing remasters and remakes of acclaimed games to the market. 2021, of course, was no different. On Switch in particular, there was a huge influx of old games and remasters with a new coat of paint. However, many of them were met with fan criticism in one way or another, with some players disappointed with the final product delivered by some big publishers.
In a new video today, I decided to take a closer look at three Switch remasters: The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword HD, Sonic Colors: Ultimate, and Grand Theft Auto: The Trilogy – The Definitive Edition. We analyze the different approaches, the problems, and how they ended up like this. You can watch the full video below.
