Following a special PlayStation State of Play presentation on March 17th, Hogwarts Legacy has also been confirmed for Nintendo Switch. Not everyone is happy, however, as some players worry that it may affect the quality of the game.
After 18 months of silence since its initial reveal in September 2020, Avalanche Software finally gave fans the update they were hoping for with a 14-minute gameplay reveal showcasing school life, spellcasting, and the open world.
After the event wrapped up, the developer clarified on Hogwarts Legacy’s official website that it will launch on Nintendo Switch alongside PlayStation, Xbox and PC, leading some to worry that it might do poorly on the hybrid console.
Hogwarts Legacy on Nintendo Switch has a few worries
Following the confirmation, fans took to social media to discuss their concerns with Hogwarts Legacy on Nintendo Switch. Many were nervous that it might have graphics issues or even be a cloud version, which in itself was a contentious issue, especially given the backlash surrounding Kingdom Hearts HD 1.5 + 2.5 ReMIX’s performance.
“As for gameplay on the PS5 version, it either gets the performance treatment of Doom Eternal (sacrificing graphics but still looks good and smooth gameplay), the surprise outcome of The Witcher 3, or the dreaded Cloud?” One user posted on Reddit posted.
Others responded with concerns about a possible cloud version, including two comments that read, “Either non-cloud native or not a sale for me” and “Either it will be cloud or the graphics will look so bad it’s unplayable.” is.”
It should be noted that a cloud version has not been 100% confirmed at the time of writing. Pre-orders for the physical copy of Hogwarts Legacy have also been made available for sale online, which doesn’t rule out the possibility but does give more weight to the idea that it’s playing card based.
And while the title obviously not going to run like the PlayStation 5 version shown at the event, many are hoping it will run as well as The Witcher 3, which pleasantly surprised gamers upon release who expected it to have significant performance issues given its size would.
Fans just have to wait and see when the magical RPG will be released in the holiday 2022 season.
