Cyberpunk 2077 may have received warnings for its performance on the PlayStation and Xbox stores, but it works fine on Switch.
Cyberpunk 2077 It hasn’t exactly had the smoothest launch – it was given a warning on Xbox and removed from the PlayStation store.
But we’ve seen good news about the game on some platforms as well – after playing around with the settings, we know that it works quite well on PC. And Stadia players seem to be enjoying the experience too.
But as the video above demonstrates, it turns out that the Stadia version of the game has other uses as well.
YouTuber Nintendrew has posted a video showing the controversial RPG seemingly flawless on Nintendo’s hybrid handheld / home console.
According to the video, the game can even 1080p when the device is docked, and once it is up and running, you can play with Joy-Cons and a Pro controller.
So by all accounts the game pretty much runs on Switch. Who knows!
However, if you want CD Projekt Red’s troublesome new release to boot up on Nintendo’s machine, you’ll have to do some homework.
Nintendrew has noted that the video he has posted contains a hacked Switch running Android, on which Google Stadia has been installed. If you look at the performance of other streaming-based games on the Switch, you can see that Cyberpunk 2077 feels very differently.
Last year, CD Projekt Red pointed out that Cyberpunk 2077 probably won’t end on Switch, despite The Witcher 3’s success on the platform.
Apparently, CD Projekt staff are furious with bosses over the launch of Cyberpunk 2077 and the company’s stock has suffered somewhat thanks to the game’s continued launch issues.
Will the title running on a hacked Nintendo Switch make a difference to the company’s fortunes? Probably not. But at least it’s good news in what would have otherwise been a somewhat difficult patch for developers and players alike.
