The game IS coming to the Nintendo Switch. Maybe a cloud version but I do not care about that as the 2 most important questions for me are answered in their official website!

Q: Does Hogwarts Legacy have online or co-op gameplay?
A: Hogwarts Legacy is a single player experience and does not have online or co-op gameplay.

Q: Are there in-game purchases or micro-transactions in Hogwarts Legacy?
A: Hogwarts Legacy does not have in-game purchases or micro-transactions.

@Zuljaras Apparently there’s to be a physical version available according to US Amazon and it’s not listed as being cloud on the official game website so I assume it’s native. Remember this isn’t a next generation only game, it’s coming to PS4 & Xbox One and there’s been a few decent ports of games from those systems over to Switch already. I will wait to see footage of the Switch version before make any judgments.

@FragRed I doubt that they will put the whole game on the cartridge.

As for PS4 it will be on the disc or 2. If the Switch fails to deliver on that end I will get it for the PS4

@Zuljaras I agree, it’s almost certainly a cartridge with a large download. What I was referring to was this won’t be a cloud game, it’s going to be natively ported over to run on Switch hardware.

@Zulijaras It's too early to tell. If Avalanche Software's compression tools are good and WB are willing to spend a little extra, perhaps we'll get this game all on cartridge. Although we've been fooled in the past, the current Switch box art doesn't have a download banner. Keep hope alive.

If the entirety of the game isn't on cart, then I'm not going to bother.

And if that turns out to be the case, then I'll hold out for a potential GOG release (though WB scarcely releases games there, though the Lego Harry Potter games are available there).

What a shame that FIVE YEARS on, publishers are still being shameless cheapskates. I refuse to believe that 32GB carts are anywhere near as expensive to manufacture today as they were five years ago.

Considering that the PS5/Xbox Series versions cost AU$10 more here, why don't they change the same premium for the Switch release and call it a day? If they had issued an honest product, the Switch version could - with any luck - easily outsell versions on rival hardware. In addition to portability, the Switch version also has the unique distinction of being the only version that wouldn't require an installation (provided that the damn game is on the damn card), so the slight premium basically pays for itself rather than gobbling up one's microSD storage.

@Magician Ohhh that looks so beautiful ... hope is still alive

I am too much of a HP fan to miss on that!

I'm cautiously optimistic. The game will inevitably come out last on Switch, so I'll wait to see how the holiday launch goes.

@nitrolink That’s a good point. If this is being developed internally, they’ll put their resources into the other systems first. Also publishers love to get people to double dip.

If it turns out to be as good as it looks, I'm absolutely interested in the game

If they can get this on a cart, then there's no reason they couldn't do Arkham Knight as well. Maybe that's part of the reason that they haven't announced those?

Also, while I'm not really an HP fan anymore, I'm really happy for those that are happy about this. Hogwarts Legacy is the ultimate miracle port at this point.

Does the game permit the character in Female or Male only gameplay? That should be something that need info on. This would get more female gamers coming over to Switch to improve the gender gap.

@SwitchForce In the video it is shown that you can create a Wizard (male) and a Witch (female) and you can further customize their looks

Hopefully that comes true. This would also require a 4K Switch as well to power all this graphics engine.

Preorders on AmazonNA were unavailable earlier this morning.

But they're live now.

If this port turns out good, It opens up so many port possibility's!

Nintendo are like woman, You love them for whats on the inside, not the outside.

(My friend code is SW-7322-1645-6323, please ask me before you use it)

I edited a pfp! I really like it, I did have some editing hiccups tho. I will use it next week.

@Snatcher hopefully if it uses some specific tech, WB won't patent it like they did the Nemesis System.

Wow, this game is way more expansive and content-filled than I thought it would when I first saw the reveal trailer. This is practically what I wanted a Harry Potter game to be ever since I played the first three on PC and Gamecube years ago. I'm currently very cautiously optimistic about this since there's a slight chance the trailer is making it look better than it actually is.

Also, I give a big nod to the developers for including a few book-only areas and references. Having this much attention to detail and care put in for the fans gives me hope that Hogwarts Legacy will be as good as they're showing.

If this is basically a Hogwarts Simulator then, I would be interested. I dunno, a certain person is...not very liked these days for certain reasons. Heard she was involved in this game...?

Ignoring that, I'll keep an eye on it, just thought everyone would be avoiding this game because of that reason.

A noisy minority does not reflect the sentiments of the vast majority, so, I don’t know why anybody would have been under the impression that “everyone” would be avoiding the game.
