Pas de version Switch

This Legendary Edition will also not be available on Nintendo Switch. An absence explained by Mac Walters, director of the project: a port to the Nintendo console would bring complications, especially in terms of the size of the title. The developers felt that a quality remaster was incompatible with the Switch.
