NieR Replicant came out weeks ago with a new version where you can experience the pre-delivery to the iconic NieR: Automata better than ever before . With this, the peculiar franchise that has Yoko Taro at the helm continued to open to new audiences with great success, although leaving aside a community that is among the largest in the entire sector today: Nintendo Switch .
While the leap from IP to hybrid console, particularly speaking of NieR: Automata, was something that began to be rumored as early as 2019 , it is a scenario that has not yet materialized. Now, on the other hand, it is NieR Replicant ver.1.22474487139 … the one that puts Nintendo Switch back into the possible crosshairs of the franchise, something that has been found based on some references by datamining .
It has been through a post on Reddit that has detailed how, at a certain point, a trace of references to Nintendo Switch could be found that even spoke of a graphical adjustment made to measure so that NieR Replicant ver. 1.22474487139 could work on the console. On the other hand, in the same way, it should be noted that in the current game files on PC, no license mentions have been detected for Switch, while it is possible to do the same for the rest of the game’s platforms.
In the publication itself it is stated that this may be due to the fact that, when the original launch of NieR Replicant ver.1.22474487139 … took place, the version for Nintendo Switch would still have been far from being properly completed . This implies, therefore, that there is still the possibility that NieR Replicant ver. 1.22474487139 … will eventually see the light of day on Nintendo’s hybrid console, although if an announcement finally occurs it would be logical to imagine that it would place the game still a few months of the present time.
In this sense, we know that Square Enix will be one of the many companies that will have a presence at E3 2021 , so a pack that includes both NieR: Automata and NieR Replicant ver.1.22474487139 could easily end up being announced … for Nintendo Switch. For now, we will leave you in the shared article with the basic guide that you must take into account for the expected event.
