Skybound Games has announced enhanced editions of classic Dungeons & Dragons RPGS from Beamdog will be released on consoles.

Five classic PC RPGs with recent remasters will be coming to Switch in 2019. Skybound Games is also the company that swooped in after the collapse of Telltale Games to salvage The Walking Dead The Final Season.

Baldur's Gate, Baldur's Gate II, and Neverwinter Nights were two early games from future Sonic Chronicles: The Dark Brotherhood developers BioWare.

The six games in question include the entirety of the Baldur's Gate franchise, including the recently released Siege of Dragonspear by Beamdog, along with the critically acclaimed Planescape Torment, Neverwinter Nights, and Icewind Dale. Each title will be on display at Skybound's booth from March 28 until March 31.

"We are ecstatic to partner with Skybound Games to bring these great classics to new platforms", said Trent Oster, Beamdog CEO. "Skybound's accomplishments are incredible and they have a demonstrated love and respect for creators".

What's more, Skybound Games says that we'll be hearing much more about the enhancements in the coming months.
