As part of Square Enix’s recent London event, I shared a few different perspectives, including Crisis Core: Final Fantasy VII – Reunion, Harvestella, and Valkyrie Elysium, but at first I did have a few extra glimpses worth it. Bask in the sun. So, I’ve put my thoughts on the Switch versions of Nier: Automata and Dragon Quest Treasure into one place to offer a series of quick preview opportunities.
Nier: Automata – End of YoRHa Edisi Edition
While originally coming out in 2017, NieR: Automata has yet to launch on the Nintendo Switch, which is all the more curious since developer Platinum Games has a good relationship with Nintendo, as seen in the Bayonetta series. But luckily, the waiting period is coming to an end, as NieR will debut on mixed platforms on October 6, and before that, I had a chance to jump right into the Switch version to find out about it as part of the Square Enix London event meaning in terms of performance.
Clearly, the game plays really well on the Nintendo system, though you’d assume the fast-paced combat would be hampered by the platform’s technical limitations. But it didn’t, or at least, it barely happened. Some elements of it don’t really offer smoothness, especially the aiming system, which requires you to struggle a bit with the Joy-Cons to get the perfect shot, and because NieR likes to use a variety of different camera angles, many of which are quite shrunk down. This often results in some challenging visuals and scenes on the Switch’s smaller handheld display.
However, despite this, the gameplay is actually quite smooth and works well. Combat retains its fast-paced nature, and the graphics themselves (though unlike the console or PC versions of the game) are good enough for a portable gaming system. Platinum Games has done a great job of bringing this already great video game to the new medium, and if you haven’t had a chance to experience the game yet, the Switch version will be a great place to start when it debuts in a few weeks.

Dragon Quest Treasure
I wasn’t a huge fan of the Dragon Quest series before playing Dragon Quest Builders 2, but this game caught my eye on the series and made me appreciate it. So when I saw that the upcoming Dragon Quest Treasures would be playing at the London event, I was excited to jump in and see what the game’s opening segment had to offer. For those curious, the title revolves around siblings Erik and Mia, who, after spending their lives aboard a Viking longship, decide it’s time to find treasure alone with the help of two unusual supernatural beings . The bizarre animal duo – basically a pink cat with wings, and a green pig with wings – lead Eric and Mia to the gateway to the Dragon Land , start looking for treasure.
The gameplay of the game is similar to other Dragon Quest games, where you develop a team of monsters to help you explore and fight. Monsters will attack each other’s enemies to protect you, and you can use them to find treasure and even reach new areas that Erik and Mia can’t access on foot. You’ll want to do this because finding the best loot is critical to the game’s progression system, which revolves around digging for treasure, bringing it back to your base, and using decent money to expand your base.

I’m keeping this game short for now, as the demo I have to play is short, but I’ll add that the graphics and art style make for a very captivating experience, and the title of the whole game really works great on Nintendo Switch Good, very suitable. with the platform. Combine that with the unique charm and charisma of the Dragon Quest franchise, found in every character, and it’s clear that Dragon Quest Treasure is going to be one of the top games of December.
