You're a wizard, Mario.

The Nintendo Switch port of Hogwarts Legacy has finally been released. Today's Switch release comes a whopping nine months after the game was initially released on PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X|S, and PC. It also comes a hefty six months after the game's release on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One platforms. Switch owners are able to pick it up starting at $59.99 (USD) from retailers, including from the Nintendo eShop.

Still, Switch owners can now jump into the shoes of a student at Hogwarts if they so choose. Attend classes, cast magic, get into various battles, solve various puzzles, and all that stuff.

Just as all other platforms had some technical shortcomings at their respective releases, so too does today's Switch release. The Switch version is obviously going to be graphically inferior compared to any other version available on the market. It does allegedly run "reasonably well" though. According to YouTube creator Mark Walker of SwitchUp, the Switch version's biggest issue is with its load times.

According to Walker, loading screens when transitioning between areas last anywhere between 30 seconds up to 50 seconds. In addition, more loading screens are present on the Switch version that simply aren't there on more powerful platforms. Load screens are now shown when entering shops in Hogsmeade. Gone is the rather seamless open world nature of the exploration.

Walker notes that "none of these things are deal breakers for most people but [...] having to load between every single shop in a town that has about 10-15 buildings [...] certainly does impact the flow."
