The XIII remake is getting a remake

The cel-shaded shooter XIII (opens in new tab) wasn’t a hit when it was released in 2003, but it did manage to amass something of a cult following (and it was very good, a position I will stand by unto my death) and so there was some low-key but legitimate excitement when Microids announced in 2019 that it was getting a remake. Then the remake arrived, and it was, to use the professional term, staggeringly craptastic. It was such a mess that Microids and developer PlayMagic issued an official apology (opens in new tab).

By all appearances that was the end of it, but a year-and-a-half after that disastrous launch, Microids is trying again, with a whole new studio at the wheel.
