God Eater 3 will be coming to Nintendo Switch later this year, and Nintendo fans will be happy to know that the Switch version will not be compromised in any way. The producers of God Eater 3 have confirmed that the Nintendo version will be identical to the PC and PS4 ones.
“Ever since we announced the title of the game, fans have been clamoring for a Switch version of God Eater 3,” Producer Yuya Tomiyama said on the game’s official Japanese site (translated by Nintendo Everything). “We heard many people say, ‘It’s tough/impossible to play this game at home on the TV for me’; ‘I want to play multiplayer with my friends in-person’; ‘I’m used to playing this game as a portable experience, so I want a portable version.’
“Because of this, while we were working on developing the main game and the post-launch free updates, we had a separate team investigating the possibility of a port. We weighed the pros and cons of porting the game for a long time, but I’m happy to say that today we can finally confirm a Switch release for all the fans.
“The contents of the game will be the same as the PS4 and Steam versions. In addition to this, we are adding special features unique to the Switch version, such as local co-op multiplayer.”
Essentially, then, Switch owners are getting what might be the definitive version of the game. Not only does the Switch version maintain content parity with the PS4 and PC versions, but it also gets exclusive features like local co-op, as well as the Tales of Vesperia costumes that are coming only to it (don’t ask me why).
The question now is if this is enough to have the game do well on Nintendo’s console. With Monster Hunter having made the leap to other systems for now, there’s a vacuum for that genre on the Switch—maybe God Eater 3 can fill that void and find success along the way.
