XIII Remake: Microids Publishes the First Images of the Cel-Shaded Shooter


XIII Remake, the high-definition remake for PC and current-gen console of the unforgettable 2003 cel-shaded shooter, is shown for the first time in photos during Gamescom 2019.

To offer us a first look at the colorful and violent universe of the “new” XIII are the guys from Microids who, together with the authors of the original PlayMagic gem , will take care of the development of this remake to crown the dream of the many fans who are looking forward to the return of the anti-hero Thirteen .

As we can guess by observing these shots, the French and Maltese authors will remain faithful to the primitive graphic style, inspired by the eponymous comic strip by Jean Van Hamme and William Vance, choosing to operate a “simple” modernization of textures, lighting effects, and animations that support shooter mechanics. Even the narrative experience will be the same as the 2003 title to give us a way to retrace the steps of his noir odyssey.

The Microids tweet that gives us the first images of XIII Remake from Gamescom also reiterates that the title, by virtue of the recent announcement of the postponement, will be available in 2020 on PC, Mac OS, PlayStation 4, Xbox One and Nintendo Switch.
