Hogwarts Legacy Nintendo Switch release date

Keen Switch players will be able to purchase Hogwarts Legacy from July 25, 2023, and it will be the same game with all the features that can be found in other versions.

Does Hogwarts Legacy have a Cloud version?

Meaning that Hogwarts Legacy will be running off of the cartridge and the power of the console itself instead of relying on online gaming servers to deliver the most complete and technically efficient product that you would expect to find on PlayStation, Xbox, and PC.

The official game Q and A does not mention anything about the game being Cloud-supported, and the same goes for descriptions of the game via physical or digital editions. With the Switch release taking place several months after the game’s initial release on major platforms, this would line up with the theory of there being no Cloud support.
