Last week there were some retailers listing Bethesda's Wolfenstein: Youngblood
and revealing that the Nintendo Switch version would be getting a physical release, but there was one problem: the physical release would not be including a game card
This is not something new for Nintendo Switch physical releases, especially games like the Mega Man Legacy Collection 1&2
, Bayonetta 1&2
, and Mega Man X Legacy Collection 1&2
— providing players with just one card for the first game and a download code for the second one; a practice that players aren't very fond of.
Since the sources were retailers, we didn't quite know if it may have been a mistake by said retailers — as Bethesda had yet to officially confirm that this was, indeed, the case for Nintendo Switch versions of the game.
As it turns out, the physical release for Wolfenstein: Youngblood
on the Nintendo Switch will not be including a game card. The information was revealed by Bethesda on their Spanish Twitter account, where they confirmed that players will get a download code inside the game's box and no game card.
This is very disappointing, but it is likely that Wolfenstein: Youngblood
is simply too big for the Nintendo Switch game card. At least they are giving players the choice to get a physical box for those who simply want to collect games and their boxes, but this is disappointing news for Nintendo Switch owners.
