Austrian developer Crafty Studios has announced a "one-to-one remake" of Realms of Arkania: Blade of Destiny, the first game in the series. The remade Realms will boast a "complete visual reimagining along with a comprehensive overhaul of every aspect of the gameplay," and while that doesn't quite jibe with the idea of a straight-up redo, the German press release - which I suppose we should take as the original - according to RPGWatch talks about improved graphics but says nothing about changing the gameplay.

I loved this trilogy back in the day. I never finished one of them, but what the heck. It was still fun! Drakensang was also good a few years ago, but didnt have the charm of the older titles. Still I am hopeful for this one.
