Cult classic title Kingpin, an adult FPS crime noir game that originally released in 1999 for PC, is getting the remaster treatment from 3D Realms and Interplay. During the time of its release, it was mentioned by the US Senate amidst debates around violent video games following the Columbine shooting of the same year.

The title itself, however, released to negative reception for its over-the-top dialogue and edgy demeanor. The title still has a crowd, however, and will release with a bevy of enhancements, such as 4K resolution, ultrawide support and improved graphics in Enhanced mode. There is an option to even play the game with the original visuals. Controller support, a new quest, and conversation systems will also be introduced. There will also be a No Violence Mode that rids the game of all its heavy intensity, however, the swear-heavy dialogue will remain intact.

The official synopsis states: “In a stylized noir art deco gangland that never was, the Kingpin rules above all else with a bloody fist. When his lieutenant Nikki Blanco leaves a no-name Thug battered and broken, the upstart criminal rises from a puddle of blood, lead pipe in hand and revenge in mind.”

Check out the trailer above, then grab Kingpin: Reloaded for PC, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch sometime this year.
