Nintendo Switch owners who have been patiently waiting for Hogwarts Legacy will have to wait a bit longer. Originally planned for a July 25 release, the Switch version of Hogwarts Legacy has now been delayed by a few months to November 14, 2023. The news arrived a week after the game’s release on the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One consoles.

The immersive, somewhat open-world action RPG released to positive reviews earlier this year on the PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X|S, and PC. “Despite experiencing some performance issues on PC at launch, the game overall proved to be a treat for fans of the magical world of Harry Potter. While the story predates Harry’s arrival at Hogwarts by about a century, it’s the best experience gamers can get of exploring Hogwarts and uncovering all the mysteries hidden within.

In my playthrough of Hogwarts Legacy, I would rate the game as a quintessential 8 out of 10. It doesn’t really do anything wrong — except, perhaps, its targeting system — but nothing about the game is truly memorable. It really feels like it was a “paint by numbers” open world experience. I like to call it “God of War with a Harry Potter reskin.”

Considering the game has sold over 15 million units since its launch, it’s clear that Harry Potter fans have been eagerly anticipating an experience like Hogwarts Legacy. Given there are over 125 million Nintendo Switch units worldwide, the eventual release of Hogwarts Legacy on Switch is certain to further boost sales figures.
