NieR: Automata It is a widely praised and loved title, which usually pops up in various “Switch port pls” lists.Now the same applies to the lively titles NieR Replicant Ver. 1.22474487139, This was recently reissued/remastered-our close friends at Push Square described it as “Midway in between” These two descriptions. Although not everyone likes it, this shiny and improved iteration of the original cult classic has become popular.

So, will we see them on the Switch, or even on the powerful hardware version?It is possible, and some data mining results are shared Reddit It is emphasized that the “NX” preset is buried in the game code, which of course refers to the original code name and development reference of the Switch. This is a follow-up to the rumor factory on Amazon’s Switch version list that briefly appeared last year.

However, the same data miner emphasized in the update that they believe that the Switch title has been deleted or at least shelved when it enters the final stages of development. Starting from the PC executable file (named other platforms) referenced at startup, “NX” is not referenced here.

What is the chance that NieR Replicant will be transplanted together with NieR Automata? We suspect that Nintendo will have to incentivize Square Enix to work hard, and they have high operating requirements-they can indeed run on PS4 and Xbox One, but there are compromises, and the PC port is extremely inefficient. In other words, the popularity of Switch means that if most publishers feel that the audience is enthusiastic, they will consider transplanting.

Would you choose to choose one or all NieR games on the Switch, or would you rather stick to playing these games on other systems? Let us know in the comments!
