Leak says game is coming to Nintendo Switch

A reliable journalist has now claimed that Nier Automata is coming to Nintendo Switch.

As per Video Games Chronicle, the source of this rumor has shown his reliability previously by correctly reporting details about the Nintendo Direct showcase.

Nacho Requena is the editor of Spanish games magazine Manual, and he previously claimed that Nintendo Direct was scheduled for June 28th, and that it would mostly focus on third-party games.

On Monday, Nintendo confirmed the showcase on Tuesday, with 25 minutes of information set to be revealed about upcoming third-party titles.

Requena said: “I’ve also been told that some Persona game will be present, though I don’t know which game.

“I’ve also been told there will be another game that has been available for some time on other platforms… it’s been available for four years now.”

Asked on Twitter when the title was released, he revealed that it came out between 2017 and 2018, and then tweeted about Nintendo Direct with a GIF of Nier director Yoko Taro, as per VGC.
