Yesterday the release date of the Mass Effect Legendary Edition was finally revealed, a remastering of the classic trilogy of the science fiction series developed by BioWare and produced by EA.
The package is currently only available on PS4, Xbox One, and PC, thus leaving aside both PS5 and Xbox Series X|S (despite the possibility of playing it in backward compatibility) and Nintendo Switch.
However, BioWare has hinted that players will be able – perhaps – to play the trilogy in question on a platform not yet announced, apparently the hybrid console of the Big N. As revealed to Eurogamer in a dedicated interview, the development team would not have ruled out the idea of a port for Nintendo Switch.
The director of the Legendary Edition, Mac Walters, however, pointed out that this is not a short-term plan. Here are his words:
“Personally, I’d love it. But ultimately, I think we had a path set and it was like, let’s finish that, then let’s see sort of where we’re at.”
Although basically, it is far from an official confirmation of a possible porting of the classic trilogy on the Switch, it is still interesting to see that the studio has not completely ruled out the possibility. After all, the console of the House of Mario would lend itself quite well to this kind of product, considering also and above all that this would delight Mass Effect fans, now able to play the various chapters in portability.
Mass Effect Legendary Edition will in any case be available from May 14, 2021, expected on PC, PS4, and Xbox One.
