In the 90s Disney created a show and produced a video game by the name of Gargoyles. Twenty-eight years later, and they’re producing a remake. Disney and Empty Clip Studios have collaborated to bring us Gargoyles Remastered this October 19th. Unlike the classic game, it won’t just be released on one console. Instead, you can count on it to be on the Nintendo Switch, Xbox, Playstation, and on PC.
As a huge tribute to the animated series, the original game loosely follows the plot of the show. The protagonist of both, Goliath needs to put an end to a corrupted magical talisman, the Eye of Odin. Demona is seeking the talisman to help her achieve world domination. From dealing with vikings in ancient Scotland to robotic gargoyles in the then-modern-day New York City, Goliath has his hands full. He’ll need to fight, climb, and glide his way to victory to protect the world.

us, the updated version has more modern features such as the ability to rewind gameplay in case of any mistakes. As an added bonus for more features, there’s wide-screen support and achievements to make mid-90s, side-scrolling Manhattan all the better.
Gargoyles Remastered is the perfect dose of ‘90s nostalgia for fans of the iconic animated series and the original Gargoyles game. We’re delighted to bring back a classic that holds true to the foundations of the original game while enhancing it for a new generation of players.
