@Link-Hero Depends if you can kill off random classmates willy-nilly.

@Octane : I imagine it would be similar to Bully, where you are reprimanded by teachers/prefects for attacking/harassing other students/staff.

Though GTA with magic also sounds pretty rad.

So far it's looking good but I don't want to get all.hyped up for it and then be disappointed at launch. If I do get it I will probably get it on Xbox. If the Switch version is good then I might get it on that too but I have been let down by Switch versions of games not running at optimal levels.

I like the Wizarding World of Harry Potter. I'm excited for the game. But like Marvel's Midnight Suns, who knows how long we'll have to wait after the Playstation and Xbox versions launch? Six months? A year?

Apparently the same developers who handled the Alan Wake Switch port are working on the Switch port of Hogwart's Legacy. Oh boy, yikes. DANGER WARNING DANGER!!!

@Magician They've done more than just that port so I wouldn't say danger. They're pretty decent at porting things and from what I've heard they were hired last second to help with ALAN WAKE.

Don't say danger just yet.

The gameplay looks like way too much to run on the switch. While broom flying through the woods and when there's long draw distances, there's no way the switch can load the world & trees fast enough while traversing the environment at that speed. I think the compromises that the switch version will require will to run will have to be quite significant, no? Switch version would have VERY few trees, terrible pop-in, terrible looking trees, ridiculously short draw distance, or be cloud version. This game will have to be cloud, no? (Very cool looking game, so far, for other platforms)

I pasted the video to play at the start of woods flying section. Longer draw distances at 2:50+.

@WoomyNNYes It will probably run better than Scarlet/Violet.

@Octane ...At this point I don't even know, we haven't seen a single clip of the Switch version, kinda worries me. I know the Switch could run this, I really don't care if it's 720p, 30fps, and lowered visuals, as long as it runs smooth and stuff.

@Joeynator3000 I'm just glad I have a PS5 for games like this. The Switch cannot keep up with the Series X and PS5 at this point.

@Link-Hero : The Australian classification cites "in-game purchases".

This isn't necessarily indicative that there will be DLC/microtransactions, but the applicant would have at least made an admission that such material may be in the works.

@Sisilly_G Yeah, for US market, Splatoon 3's eshop page says "in-game purchases", and there's no micro transactions. At this point, I'm thinking maybe the in-game purchases may refer to buying gear & shellout machine capsules with in-game currency, which is not tough to earn.

@Link-Hero If you try to buy the physical on Amazon UK, there is an exclusive Hat:

Which is explained as "The Amazon Exclusive Includes Astronomer’s Hat exclusive DLC"
So to me seems like there will be DLC or micro-transactions for clothing at least

@Octane That’s how I’m gonna be playing this game. I am really excited to see what this game is about. I haven’t seen too much from trailers in case theirs spoilers. I’m also rewatching all the Harry Potter films, even though they have nothing to do with the game but it’s Christmas and I consider them Christmas movies.

@WoomyNNYes : Didn't they announce paid DLC for Splatoon 3 though?

@WoomyNNYes : I just want the damn thing on a cart (when it surfaces). I'm hoping that Splatoon 3 also gets an all-in-one cart like the Splatoon 2 release in Japan. At least this time, Splatoon 3 has only one build internationally (that I know of), which means that such a release would be import-friendly.
