Get ready YoRha fans as NieR Automata will be coming to the portable platform of the Nintendo Switch on October 6th. The game will be releasing in both physical and digital versions in the form of The End of YoRHa Edition.
The Switch version gains six new exclusive costumes, four new accessories and two new pod skins based on the mobile title NieR Re[in]carnation. The physical edition will include the artwork by character designer Akihiko Yoshida on the front reversible cover and box art featuring A2 designed by Koda Kazuma.

The stylish Action-RPG first came to Playstation 4 in February 2017, followed by PC in March 2017, and Xbox One in June 2018.
It will be interesting how the open-world performs on the on-the-go device, but the Switch has been seen pushing the limits with titles such as The Witcher 3. I wonder if we will be seeing NieR Replicant also coming to Switch sometime in the future.
In case you missed it, it was also announced during the Nintendo Direct today the Persona series will also be coming to Switch as well as other major platforms, so a good day for RPG fans looking for more Switch titles.
NieR Automata The End of YoRHa Edition releases on October 6th 2022 for $39.99.
