Cyberpunk sur Switch

Cyberpunk 2077 also works on Switch, video proof

Cyberpunk 2077 is out on PC and consoles… but not on Switch. However, a Youtuber managed to get the game to run on Nintendo’s portable machine. On the latter, it is even more beautiful and more fluid than on PS4. Of course, there is something behind this magic trick, and it’s called Cloud Gaming.

Cyberpunk on Switch

Running Cyberpunk 2077 on Switch feels more like a bad joke than anything else. Yet it is possible. Youtubeur Nintendrew proves it today in a video. He says he managed to run the CD Projekt game on its Switch without any graphic compromise. It even looks better than on PS4 and Xbox One. A tour de force which is actually very simple.

Nintendrew does not run Cyberpunk 2077 natively on its portable console. There is obviously a trick. He explains that he installed Android on the machine, which is equipped with an Nvidia Tegra X1 processor, as we recall. Once done, he worked on the compatibility of the Joy-Cons so that they were recognized as a controller. Then he had no more than to install Stadia and launch the game via the app.

Cyberpunk 2077 spins like a charm on the small tablet. In addition, the functionality of the console is fully supported. For example, it is possible to switch from the TV screen to the machine screen as can be done with a Switch game. Cyberpunk is taken as an example here, as it is the title of the moment, but all games on Google’s service can be played.

Streaming, the future of the Switch?

A few months ago, CD Projekt had caressed the idea of ​​bringing his game to Switch. The thing could be quite possible thanks to the magic of Cloud Gaming. While this feature has been around for a while in Japan, it is coming to Europe.

Last October, Control hit the small console. To run with maximum graphics and even ray-tracing enabled, the game goes through the Cloud. All you need is an Internet connection to enjoy it. Control is only the first in a long series, since in 2021, other titles like Hitman 3 will use this technique.

Now remains to be seen if CD Projekt will decide to officially bring its game to the Switch. For the moment, the developer has other things to do and must in particular correct all the concerns still present on the game, especially on the PS4 and Xbox One versions.

But later, maybe?
