The Baldur's Gate Series And Neverwinter Nights Are Coming To Consoles In 2019

Skybound Games is teaming up with Beamdog Games to bring the Baldur's Gate series and Neverwinter Nights to consoles this year.

Those of you who are hankering for some Dungeons & Dragons games on your home console will soon be in luck, as a collection of the best D&D PC games will be coming to consoles in 2019.

These will be enhanced versions of the original games that were updated to run on modern PCs and include all of the downloadable content for each title, such as the Throne of Bhaal expansion for Baldur's Gate II.

The press release sent out by Skybound Games did not reveal which consoles that the Dungeons & Dragons games will be appearing on, but the low requirements of each game mean that they could easily be ported to the Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One.

Skybound Games is a subsidiary of Skybound Entertainment, which was co-founded by Robert Kirkman, who created The Walking Dead. They are currently working on finishing the final two episodes of Telltale's The Walking Dead series.

None of these games have ever seen a console release before, although Baldur's Gate came close, as a near-complete port of the game for the original PlayStation was leaked online.

The arrival of these classic PC games to consoles is a huge deal, but the question we have to ask is how these games will run using a joypad? All of these games were designed to be used with a keyboard & mouse and it's going to be incredibly frustrating to have to move a cursor around the screen using a joystick.

Skybound Games has promised to reveal more information about the games soon, which means we shouldn't have to wait too long until we know which consoles the games will be appearing on, and whether we can start asking Masahiro Sakurai to add Minsc to Super Smash Bros. Ultimate
