Hogwarts Legacy has no-doubt been one of the biggest releases of the year - initially arriving on Xbox Series X|S back in February before the Xbox One version landed in May. While the cross-gen versions ended up pretty well-matched, the Nintendo Switch version is out today, and there are some major differences compared to every other platform.
Perhaps the biggest difference is that this new Switch version isn't a proper open world - at least compared to the other releases. It seems that the dev has done its utmost to bring the world of Hogwarts over to less-powerful hardware, but frequent load screens are part of the experience as a result, which break up the open world. You can check out the differences up above - where outlet SwitchUp pits the Nintendo console against the PC version of the title.
The game world is segmented on Switch - and even areas like shop interiors are cut off by lengthy load screens. Considering the hardware in question the dev team has done a pretty remarkable job getting this one running on Switch at all, but it certainly makes us appreciate the Xbox versions and their much more seamless open worlds!
