THQ Nordic has also announced two special editions for the game’s release on Nintendo Switch – the DNA Collector’s Edition and the Crypto-137 Edition. The DNA Collector’s Edition comes with a Crypto’N’Cow figurine, a keychain, six lithographs, an eye-popping stress toy, all in-game skins, and will come with a premium box.
The Crypto-137 Edition includes the keychain, six lithographs, all in-game skins, the stress toy and premium box along with a special Crypto-137 figurine and a Crypto backpack.
The PC and console version of the remake released in July last year, and received a three-and-a-half star review from NME’s Jordan Oloman, who praised the game for its remade graphics and its commitment to sticking to the authenticity of the original 2005 game.
In February this year, THQ Nordic appeared to be teasing a remake of Destroy All Humans! 2. The publisher shared a new promotional video on Steam that included a clone, known as Crypto-138, who is best known as the main protagonist of Destroy All Humans! 2. An official announcement has not been made.
