Hitman 3 and Control are coming to switch to the cloud

Nice surprise for Switch players today. The Control and Hitman 3 games are coming to the Nintendo console. However, unlike other media, games will be available through cloud games. In fact, the switch is not powerful enough to run the two titles locally.

The controls were previously available for PS4, Xbox One and PC. The Switch version includes the base game and the first two expansions, The Foundation and AWE. It also includes Expedition Mode, Photo Mode, and any updates that have seen the light of day since the original game was released. Control Ultimate Edition – The cloud version is now available on Switch.

Then there is Hitman 3. Like Control, the game goes through cloud games. The game will be released on January 20, 2021 on PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X / S and Stadia. It is not yet clear whether it will be the same for the switch version or whether it will have to be serviced. .

For your information, this isn’t the first time cloud games have come to Switch. There has already been an experiment in Japan with Phantasy Star Online 2, Assassin’s Creed Odyssey and Resident Evil 7. Now the technology has landed on Switch in France and elsewhere.

A Nintendo Direct Mini with other ads

The announcements for Hitman 3 and Control came during a Nintendo Direct Mini. This was also the opportunity to receive news for Hyrule Warriors: Age of the Scourge. A demo of this prequel to The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild is now available for free on Nintendo eShop.

Nintendo has also shown content for Immortals Fenyx Rising, Bravely Default II, and Story of Seasons: Pioneers of Olive Town. Additionally, the video shows part-time UFO, episode survival, Tropico 6, Bakugan: Champions of Vestroia and Griftlands.
