We finally got a good look at Hogwarts Legacy last night and sure enough, the game is looking very impressive, particularly on PS5. Still, somehow, WB Games also seems to have a plan to bring this game to the Nintendo Switch.
Hogwarts Legacy was initially revealed in 2020 for PS5, PS4, Xbox One, Xbox Series X/S and PC. During the gameplay reveal last night, we saw stunning PS5 footage. Obviously, the game is going to have to scale down to run on Xbox One and PS4, but the developers are going a step further and also working on a Nintendo Switch version.
Following the stream, the Hogwarts Legacy FAQ was updated, indicating that the game will also release on the Nintendo Switch this holiday season, meaning this could be one of the most ambitious Switch ports to date.
We've seen developers pull off the seemingly impossible with Switch ports before. DOOM, DOOM Eternal, Wolfenstein II and The Witcher 3 all had impressive showings. Last year, we also saw Guardians of the Galaxy arrive on the Nintendo Switch alongside impressive PC and next-gen console versions.

KitGuru Says: A Nintendo Switch version of this game was not announced previously, and even now, WB appears to be keeping talk of the Switch version quiet. Whether or not this version of the game actually does release at the same time as the Xbox, PlayStation and PC versions still remains to be seen, but I have my doubts.
