Here's two minutes of Crysis Remastered running on Switch

New trailer arrives ahead of next week's release.

Crysis Remastered is launching on Switch - and only Switch, following a delay for other versions - next week, and in preparation for its 23rd July arrival, Crytek has offered up a new trailer featuring two minutes of the FPS running on Nintendo's platform.

Crytek is calling this one a "tech trailer", and it's intended to highlight the various enhancements making their way to Switch as part of the remaster, including the likes of dynamic lighting, gyro aiming, destructible environments, and vegetation bending.

Crysis Remastered's latest trailer features footage capture at 720p and 30fps on Nintendo's console, and you can see how porting studio Saber Interactive's various tweaks and changes have impacted the original, notoriously demanding, 2007 experience below.

Alongside the Switch release, Crysis Remastered has also been announced for Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC. All versions were originally intended to launch simultaneously but Crytek made the decision to delay the game on all other platforms following the less-than-stellar community response to its leaked announcement trailer.

"We've seen all the reactions - the good and the bad - and we're listening!," the studio wrote at the time, confirming it had decided to delay the game on PC, Xbox One, and PS4 "by a few weeks" in order to get the experience "up to the PC and console-breaking standard you've come to expect from PC games."

No additional details have been provided on non-Switch versions since that initial announcement, but hopefully Crytek will have more news to share soon.
