Equipped with open world features and stunning graphics, this game comes like a triple A title that looks so demanding. So far, Portkey as the developer of Hogwarts Legacy has determined that this game will appear on all contemporary platforms today (Nintendo Switch, Playstation, Xbox, and PC).

This game is indeed considered suitable for ninth generation nextgent consoles such as Xbox Series S/X and Playstation 5. But what about the Nintendo Switch and other eighth generation consoles (PlayStation 4 and Xbox One)?

Hogwarts Legacy was successfully released on Friday (10/2). At that time, most of the platforms mentioned above could immediately feel the joy of being a Hogwarts student in their fifth year.

However, the unique thing is, the developers still require eighth generation consoles to wait to become part of the Universe Wizarding World – one of which is the Nintendo Switch.

Impressed to be ignored, the next release phase will only be available on April 4 (only for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One) and July 25 (Nintendo Switch) – according to reports from their official page.

This step itself is quite confusing for many people. Although the reception received at yesterday's launch looked very positive, this separation has caused a lot of speculation.

Will the version that the Nintendo Switch gets be exactly the same as the ninth generation consoles? Or are there even some parts that will be "amputated" by Portkey?

Let's just see in July.
