Is NieR near?
For years now, I’ve been begging for a Switch port of NieR:Automata. I felt the platform would be perfect for the game, and it would be lovely to see this amazing experience reach a new audience. Now, if a rumor is to be believed, I’ll be getting my wish in the very near future.
According to journalist/known leaker Nacho Requena, there’s a chance that we could see NieR:Automata on the Switch. Requena stated that they heard a game from 2017-2018 was getting a Switch port, and when a fan asked for more details, Requena shared a GIF of Nier director Yoko Taro.
NieR:Automata originally launched on PS4 back in 2017, then jumped over to Xbox One in 2018. Along with that, Taro has previously shared interest in bring NieR:Automata to Switch. Could we actually end up seeing the game make its way to Switch later this year? It looks like the Nintendo Direct Mini: Partner Showcase will be a great place to find out!
