Following Nintendo’s announcement that PlatinumGames’ cult-favorite action-RPG Nier: Automata is coming to the Switch later this year, some gamers are demanding that Square Enix make native ports for the Kingdom Hearts games as well.
During yesterday’s Nintendo Direct Mini: Partner Showcase, Square Enix announced that Nier: Automata The End of YoRHa Edition is coming to the Switch on October 6. The Switch port includes previously released add-ons like the ”3C3C1D119440927” DLC as well as new costumes.
In a follow-up blog post, the official Japanese Nier Twitter account confirmed the Switch port will run at 30 frames per second with a 1920×1080 resolution when docked and a 1280×720 resolution in handheld mode. While Nier: Automata fans shared memes in response to how poorly The End of YoRHa Edition might run on Nintendo’s modest hardware, Kingdom Hearts fans demanded that Square Enix give Kingdom Hearts the same treatment with the release of a native port on the Switch.
