Forums - Nintendo Discussion - Nier Automata: End of the YorHa Edition releases on Switch October 6th

Damn, did not see this coming!
Surely it need some cloud implementation??
You guys are in for a treat!

So is this the full game, or something else? The extra title confuses me...



You know it deserves the GOTY.

Full game + some DLC content no one really cares about but it's there I guess




I make music, check it out here on Bandcamp, Spotify, and Youtube!

Consider me interested!



The Switch version weights 10.9 GB apparently. For context, PS4 version stands at 50 GB

Square Enix:

- We took the time and effort to compress this kind of niche 50GB 8th Gen console game in about 10 GB on the Switch.

Also Square Enix:

- This 50 GB PS2 remaster collection of a super popular series starring fucking Disney characters is too heavy and it costs too much money to get it into a Switch card. We give up, not worth the money. Cloud version it is

I'm starting to believe the theory they just lost the source code for Kingdom Hearts

Apparently not.

Granted, Nier Automata is a demanding game, but the Switch already runs games that are even more demanding on PS4/Xbone, like Witcher 3, Dying Light, Hellblade, and World War Z.

The Switch is capable of punching above its weight in the hands of skilled developers due to a more modern feature set than PS4 or Xbox One, and a highly efficient architecture. Some sacrifices are necessary to bridge the gap in raw power, but when the compromises are well gauged, it can deliver games that seem beyond its reach on paper.



Bet with Liquidlaser: I say PS5 and Xbox Series will sell more than 56 million combined by the end of 2023. (And over 130 million lifetime)

Even if that was true, it still doesn't explain this whole circus at all... 



One of the best from Platinum Games.

They ported this fine to Switch but made KH 1.5 and 2.5 cloud only lmao.

It's probably because they lost the source codes for those games. They had to reverse engineer them from a pirated ROM file to make the HD versions.


A bit...late to this post (but considering the fact that the game is coming out in 5 days lol).

I dont think that is a issue considering the games are on PS4, Xbox and PC now....
