No mention of the Switch version isn't surprising considering that version has been MIA for a while, but I'm surprised that the 3DS version isn't getting localized.

Okay the Switch version better be at E3 because it's getting ridiculous. It was the first NX title announced and we haven't seen a single screenshot.

Looks like they might have canceled the Switch version for PC.

Makes sense.

EDIT: Oh just saw Switch part in the title. Maybe 3DS version is gone for PC.

I've given up on the Switch version at this point. I guess I'll get it on PS4. This game looks so gorgeous, can't wait to see it on my TV. Does this have any Pro enhancements?

Steam release ? We fucking won.
I knew SE wouldnt disappoint me with this release.

I guess 3DS/Switch releases will be handled by Nintendo. Best of both worlds.

Please oh please tell me they added voice acting. Delay it to 2019 if must, seriously.

Edit: YES! Good work Square Enix! And Steam release too, fuck yes.
