Square Enix announced that for NieR: Automata as it’s coming to Xbox One at E3 this year. While a Switch version wasn’t announced, the possibility of it happening in the future still remains.
During an official Square Enix Presents stream, director Yoko Taro, producer Yosuke Saito, and designer Takahisa Taura appeared and briefly touched on the idea of a Switch version. All joking aside, Saito did say that it might be able to happen if enough people show interest by asking Taura on Twitter.
The full transcript is below.
Yoko Taro: Well, um, when are we getting the Switch version Saito-san?
Yosuke Saito: Well, it’s not all on me to decide because PlatinumGames do take painstaking time to develop for each console.
Takahisa Taura: Well, I don’t think it’s a good idea to ask me about something as big as this.
Yoko Taro: I want a Switch version, Taura-san! Give it to me!
Takahisa Taura: Well, I’d like to have one too if it’s about what we want.
Yosuke Saito: Well, Taura-kun’s Twitter account is shown on the screen here and if everyone asks him for it, then there may be a possibility that it would become a reality. But even if it does, it might be about two years from now again. See we keep our jobs alive by releasing a little by little.
Takahisa Taura: Yes, we try to stretch it out as much as possible.
Yoko Taro: And this Twitter account is for asking for new girlfriends too right?
Takahisa Taura: Well, yes, but please contact Saito-san about Switch and not me.
If interested in getting NieR: Automata on Switch, it looks like jumping on Twitter is the preferred method to ask.
