Ziggurat Interactive and WayForward have announced BloodRayne Betrayal: Fresh Bites for Nintendo Switch, PlayStation, Xbox, and PC via Steam and GOG, and it will receive a physical release on Switch and PS4 through Limited Run Games. It is essentially a high-definition remaster of 2011’s BloodRayne: Betrayal, a 2D sidescrolling action game spinning off from the 3D titles, with extra features included. For starters, the game has voice acting now, performed by Laura Bailey and Troy Baker reprising their roles of Rayne and Kagan from the 3D titles.
Additionally, BloodRayne Betrayal: Fresh Bites will offer upward of 4K-resolution visuals, which won’t mean anything for standard Nintendo Switch but could mean something if the rumored Switch Pro ever emerges. The visuals have also been sharpened in general, and some bugs have been fixed. Plus, difficulty options have expanded: “Play with a newly rebalanced difficulty tuned for a fun and engaging experience, or sink your teeth into the punishing original difficulty mode if you’re looking for a tough-as-nails challenge.”
BloodRayne Betrayal: Fresh Bites will be welcomed by the longtime fans who are nonetheless still hoping for a brand new entry in the franchise, and a physical release from Limited Run Games doesn’t hurt either.
