Assassin’s Creed Odyssey Confirmed For Switch, Kind of

Assassin’s Creed Odyssey was announced for the Xbox, PlayStation and Windows platforms as of now by the developers. However, a Nintendo Switch version has also been recently announced. Nintendo Japan revealed that a cloud version would be available for Assasin’s Creed Odyssey for Nintendo Switch.

As part of the reveals of the Nintendo Direct event, the upcoming action game was announced exclusively for the gaming community of Japan. Therefore, the downloadable cloud version of Assassin’s Creed Odyssey on Nintendo Switch will only be available in Japan. This is much like when the cloud version of Resident Evil 7 Biohazard came out.

The users in the West should not get much carried away by this news as till now no such update has surfaced for a western version of Ubisoft’s latest Assassin’s Creed title to be available on Switch. You might as well keep your fingers crossed for now.

The full game pass for the Japanese cloud version on Nintendo Switch is reported to be for 8400 Japanese Yen which is just about 75 US Dollars. Whereas, 24 hours access of Assassin’s Creed Odyssey is reportedly going to cost 730 Japanese Yen or 6.52 US Dollars, to be exact.

The Nintendo Switch cloud version is expected to be accessible in Japan on the same release date as for other consoles which is 5 October 2018. The trailer for the Switch cloud version of the game was revealed in a trailer video posted by the official channel of Nintendo Japan on Youtube with a translation into the local language.

The video showed how the Assassin’s Creed Odyssey game would look like in it’s Japanese version. The dialogues, choices, menus and perhaps the whole interface setting were all displayed in a total language converted format, which means it has been specially and carefully designed in accordance with the demands of its players in the region.

Perhaps, the Japanese Cloud version even has customized sound in the game in line with the Japanese culture as the Audio Director of Assassin’s Creed Odyssey has recently been declared to have added relevance to the audio of the game. The previously shanties in the game will now be sung according to the current events.

Some sequences even showed us a gameplay glimpse of Assassin’s Creed Odyssey while being played on the handheld console, Nintendo Switch, which is a sight you would surely want to live in real life. Perhaps the Director stayed true to his promise of bringing the game to Switch if it was possible. Maybe a widely-accessible version of it would be more helpful to the fans.
