I played the shit out this game on PS4. It's really fabulous. If you're a Switch-only gamer, I definitely recommend it.

Just a comment. Isn't this interesting that this is coming to a Nintendo platform after Microsoft bought the developer?

It just goes to show that Nintendo and Microsoft are friendly right now. I knew since the days of the Wii60 that this was a match made in heaven. There is a possibility that Microsoft could bring its service maestry to a Nintendo platform. That would be wonderful for all sides, particularly the gamers..

Apparently the Switch port was in development before MS bought Ninja Theory, and MS decided to let them keep going with it.

I really wanna get this day 1 but 18 GB is a lot of space for a digital story driven game.

I think I’ll be waiting to see if a physical version comes out.

18GB does raise the question of why they didn't just release it on a 16GB cart with a small 2GB download, or just do a little more compression to fit the whole thing on the cart. There will most likely be a physical release further down the line, either from the publishers themselves or from the likes of Limited Run Games, but it could take a while.

I think that a game like this is more likely than not to see some kind of physical release on Switch.



Nintendo Switch Friend Code: SW-5643-2927-1984

I won't buy this month because I have enough already, but I might get it next month (given May is currently quiet, release wise).



I'll probably end up getting it a day or two late as (A) gotta wait for first impressions from those who've played it to make sure it's a decent port, and (B) with Australian internet it'll take almost a whole bloody day to download 18GB haha

I can't wait to see all the hate and vitriol about this game being digital only. After all, that would only be consistent with the way Switch fa-

*sees at best the most modest complaints imaginable*

....Oh....

Ohhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh

It looks like the game costs as much as each one of the Resident Evil ports. Bless Capcom for the adjusted expectations toward third parties.



Legend11 correctly predicted that GTA IV (360+PS3) would outsell SSBB. I was wrong.

18GB... I'll consider it, but that's a lot of space, as it'd eat up a sixth part of my new 128 GB mSD card.

Wasn't talking about pricing or even Capcom lol. Although yeah that pricing is atrocious.

But for games that only have the issue of being download only they got 1000x the hate that Hellblade does. Go figure.
