Harry Potter fans around the world have been eagerly waiting for Hogwarts Legacy to come out to experience their own Harry Potter world fantasy!

With promises of learning new spells, making your own potions, saving and caring for magical creatures, and even flying around the world on a broomstick – what Harry Potter fan could resist this game? Definitely not me!

Since not everyone necessarily has a gaming PC, PlayStation, or Xbox, many Harry Potter fans have been waiting for the game to come out on the Nintendo Switch, as previously announced.

While it was clear from the start that Hogwarts Legacy would come to the Nintendo Switch later than other consoles, I don’t think most people thought it would take this long…

It feels like ages have passed since Hogwarts Legacy was first released for PC, PS5 and Xbox Series X and S. But now the Nintendo Switch is finally coming! Hogwarts Legacy was originally scheduled to open in July 2023 appear for the Nintendo Switchbut that was obviously not the case.

The official Hogwarts Legacy Twitter account announced that Nintendo Switch release date on the 14. November 2023 has been postponed, which is currently the official release date.

The pre-order for Hogwarts Legacy is already available, so if you want to get a copy of the game, now’s your chance! But before you pre-order the game, you might want to take a look at some gameplay images released by Nintendo first.

With the upcoming release of Hogwarts Legacy for the Nintendo Switch, there are finally images of the gameplay available on the Hogwarts Legacy Nintendo Page were uploaded.

I honestly can’t say the graphics look bad, but they’re obviously not at the level of the PS5 or a good gaming PC. Here are some comparison images between the PS5 and Nintendo Switch graphics:

The shadows look noticeably harsher on the Switch and obviously there is a pretty noticeable difference in quality between the two consoles. Of course, that doesn’t mean the game looks bad. If you don’t mind the difference in quality, it’s worth giving the game a chance!

However, one question remains unanswered, namely whether Hogwarts Legacy will actually run smoothly on the Nintendo Switch.

With Hogwarts Legacy either running at 60fps in its high quality settings or aiming for 30fps in its Fidelity mode, it seems like the Nintendo Switch shouldn’t have any issues in this regard.

The fact that Avalanche Games has pushed back the Switch release date gives hope that the game will be developed to be a perfect fit for the Nintendo Switch. Most players were pretty happy with the quality of Hogwarts Legacy for the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, so it’s likely that Avalanche Games will do just as good a job with the Nintendo Switch version.

It is obvious that the Nintendo Switch cannot offer the same quality experience as the newer consoles, but given Avalanche Games’ previous work, we can hope that the Nintendo Switch will also offer a nice gaming experience!
