Little to no notable commitments have been made to bring it to a handheld system, and the magical and thing’s inventiveness sings as loud as ever”.

Nintendo World Report gave the PlatinumGames title a perfect score of 10/10, mentioning that it is “one of the best third-party Switch ports yet”:

NieR: Automata on Switch it’s more than enough to finish endings A through E again if you’ve already done so, this time from the comfort of wherever you want. And for newcomers, this port is of such a high standard that it’s guaranteed you won’t walk away feeling like you’ve had an inferior experience compared to friends who played this wonderfully unique hack-and-slash-and-cry-a . -bit ’em up on other platforms. It’s a showcase of how the Switch really doesn’t need to be a ‘lesser’ system than its console-generation peers, when a port is in the right hands.”

Y God is a geek gave it a 9/10, summarizing it as “essential” and “still crazy” despite some hardware hiccups:

“I can’t tell you that it’s the best version, and I can’t tell you that you need to buy it again, although I’m sure Mr. Taro would love it. But I’m really glad I played it, as it’s a reminder that no matter the how old you are or how many games you play, there are special moments that will always stand out from the rest.

“NieR: Automata The End of YoRHa Edition is brilliant. It’s a little rougher than its big brother versions thanks to the hardware, but the heart and soul are there, the story and combat are excellent, and the idea of ​​being able to go going to the bathroom while playing somehow feels like some kind of endgame meta for the title that even the biggest fans couldn’t have predicted. It’s still essential, it’s still crazy. Play this game.”
