Cyberpunk 2077 may not run well on Xbox One or PS4, but it does run on the Nintendo Switch. A YouTuber took it upon himself to make it all happen and explains how you can do it yourself.
Just a day after Cyberpunk 2077 was released, Digital Foundry published an article claiming that the game—when played on PS4—looked like a bad Nintendo Switch port. It has become well known since then, that the last-gen versions of Cyberpunk 2077 are the main source of bugs, glitches, and overall lack of quality that led to the game being delisted from PSN.
However, YouTuber Nintendrew actually did manage to get the game running on the Nintendo Switch—and it, ironically, looks better than it does on Xbox One or PS4. Being a Nintendo fan, Nintendrew set out to see if he could get the game to run on Switch, even though it’s currently not supported. He explains that he wanted to accomplish three things with his experiment: make it better than last-gen console versions, make it fully compatible with Switch, and make it accessible to everyone with a Switch.
He goes on to say that he chose not to use a PC to stream the game to his Switch because doing so is clunky and isn’t entirely reliable. What he did instead, was install Android onto the Switch, which then allowed him to install Google Stadia.
From there, it was as simple as opening the Stadia app and playing Cyberpunk. The app assumed that the Joy-con was an Xbox controller, so all of the buttons matched up one-to-one. Of course, the other result of this is that the modified Switch will then have access to the entire Stadia library, so you’ll be able to stream anything that you want on the Switch, even if it’s not officially available.
It should be noted that Nintendo probably doesn’t want you altering the software and playing games that you didn’t pay Nintendo to play; so there could be legal or warranty related consequences to doing something like this.
