As Telltale’s first episodic series, Sam and Max Save the World is coming back on Switch and PC with a remastered release in December.
While the studio met an unfortunate end in 2018, Telltale Games made its name on producing episodic adventure games with a heavy emphasis on storytelling and player decisions. Even before their breakout successes like The Walking Dead and The Wolf Among Us, Telltale had already been delivering successes like its Sam and Max series, with the crimefighting pair coming back in a remastered release this holiday season.
Developer Skunkape Games–a team made up of former members of Telltale Games–has announced Sam and Max Save the World Remastered, which will bring the dynamic (and slightly dysfunctional) duo back with modern enhancements. According to the studio, the remastered release will arrive for Nintendo Switch and PC on December 2, 2020, with preorders open now.
You can take a look at the official trailer for the remastered version of Save the World below:
The remastered release includes all six episodes from the first season of the episodic Sam and Max series, while also providing a number of improvements and updates since the series first debuted in 2006. Specifically, this version will feature completely remastered visuals, restored audio, controller support, and other “numerous additions and tweaks.” The game will also feature full subtitles in English, German, French, Spanish, Italian, Polish, Hungarian, Czech, and Russian.
Aside from the remastered release of Save the World, earlier this year it was also teased that Sam and Max will return in what seems like an upcoming VR game. However, that project is being developed by HappyGiant, and from the looks of its initial teaser trailer, it seems like we’ll get to help the infamous dog and rabbit solve crimes through the power of VR.
