Though consoles have the right to exclusives, and we can accept that, it's sometimes nice to see how games could look if they were put on other hardware. And this video of Horizon Zero Dawn being played on a Switch has us swooning with how pretty it looks - and yes, now we really need it to be a reality.
GamesRadar+ spotted that Reddit user Snom-Leader posted a clip of their project - to be able to play Guerrilla Game's hit action RPG on Nintendo's portable console. And as we said, it looks fabulous. Though it's not an extensive look at the way the game would play, the image is crisp and clear - but it's worth noting that it's running through the PS Play app.
Horizon Zero Dawn's sequel, Horizon Forbidden West, is set to release sometime later this year. Check out gameplay from it, below...
According to the modder, Snom-Leader, the image would look even better if their internet wasn't so poor. They comment: "It would be a lot better if my internet wasn't terrible. I did this through PS Play on my switch running Lineage OS (basically Android)." This is how they're streaming the game to the console, enabling them to easily play the PlayStation console exclusive anywhere in their home. Pretty neat.
We've seen some unexpected games on the Nintendo Switch before. It wasn't long ago that one modder used his brains to put Cyberpunk 2077 on the Switch which was incredibly impressive. Though both of these projects are really cool, it's important to know that modding your own hardware can be a little scary as there is potential to destroy your Switch and/or its data, so only ever try these projects on a secondary, offline console. Not to mention these sorts of projects almost definitely anger Nintendo - it's pretty protective of its products, if you didn't know already.
The sequel to Horizon Zero Dawn, Horizon Forbidden West, is still in production - but it's not too far off from seeing a release, as the adventures of Aloy will continue sometime later this year.
