Commandos 2 HD Remaster Sneaks Onto The Switch Next Month

A classic PC strategy title from back in the day, the Switch will see Commandos 2 HD Remaster release this December.

Coming to the Nintendo Switch next month, Commandos 2 HD Remaster from Pyro Studios and published by Kalypso Media, behind the excellent Tropico series.

The Commandos series was one of my favourite strategy games back in the 90s, but my PC was never up-to-speed to play in full resolution. But they’ll be dancing in the streets as this HD remaster hits the Switch.

Playing as the Allied’s commandos, in Commandos 2 HD Remaster, you have to infiltrate enemy bases, completing sabotage and espionage-like missions to get the upper hand with the backdrop of World War II.
