Grim Fandango combines a unique story line and complicated puzzles to create an adventure different from any you have experienced before.

Follow Manny through four years of mystery on his quest for true love and eternal salvation. The game opens to find Manny in search of the perfect client, one with the means to place them both on the fast track out of purgatory and into eternal paradise. Enter Mercedes Colomar, the client who has it all--beauty, brains, and enough money to buy them each tickets on the exclusive No. 9 train.

Following the film-noir formula, Mercedes promptly vanishes, leaving Manny to solve the mystery behind her disappearance and her connection with the Department of Death.

Grim Fandango Remastered will be available on the Nintendo Switch in the coming months.

Grim Fandango is one of the most acclaimed adventure games of all time, with unforgettable characters and a unique combination of film noir and Mexican folklore. Players jump in as Manny Calavera, travel agent at the Department of Death to help untangle him from a conspiracy that threatens his very salvation.

Grim Fandango Remastered's story has been remastered to look, sound, and control even better. 

With fantastic graphics--stylishly rendered in the film-noir style--and art from the Mayan, Aztec, and Mexican traditions, Grim Fandango is imaginative and appealing. The challenging puzzles call for attentive play and serious exploration of the Land of the Dead--not an unappealing job when surrounded by such beautiful animation.

Include the original story line and humorous characters and you won't want to stop playing...

Grim Fandango Remastered is already available on PlayStation 4, PlayStation Vita and Steam, as well as the App Store and Google Play.
