Lock’s Quest Remaster Announced for PS4, Xbox One, and PC in April

Lock’s Quest coming to PS4, Xbox One and PC

2008’s Lock’s Quest is the newest entry in THQ Nordic’s MAP (meaningful asset-program). The MAP is THQ Nordic’s internal plan on which IPs to focus mid to long term, but that’s not important right now. Lock’s Quest is one of those hidden gems that will profit from MAP and will be released in April 2017 on PS4, Xbox One, and Windows PC.

Originally, Lock’s Quest has been released on the Nintendo DS back in 2008, and is going to be “mapped” for April 2017 on PS4, Xbox One, and Windows PC.

Developer Digital Continue (based in New York City) had to walk a fine line between keeping the visuals and core gameplay of the Nintendo DS, whilst revamping UI, adapting controls, remastering the music, and adding a new progression system which is integrated into the storyline.

“We had the great opportunity to work with people from the original development team of Lock’s Quest, and things clicked right off the bat”, comments Reinhard Pollice, Business and Product Development Director at THQ Nordic. “It is one of those hidden gems and a fan-favourite, so when things fell into place, we quickly decided to do this.”

“I always felt Lock’s Quest deserved a multi-platform release, and it’s exciting to help that vision come to pass all these years later”, added Digital Continue Co-Founder & CEO, Joseph M Tringali. “The incredible pixel style translates well to console, and we were fortunate to include many high-resolution assets that weren’t in the original. It was great to work with a partner like THQ Nordic, who understands and respects the creative process, and was dedicated to both preserving and enhancing this fan favorite.”

Meh, looks like a 16-bit retro Dragon Quest Builders. So why not just play Dragon Quest Builders? Pass.

Because it's not Dragon Quest Builders and was around eight years before DQB even existed; Lock's Quest was originally released in 2008. It's more of an RTS/Tower Defense than anything else.

I had a lot of fun with this game on the DS, so I'm not displeased to see it making a return.
