Posted on June 20, 2021 by Brian(@NE_Brian) in News, Switch eShop
Square Enix unveiled Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy during its E3 2021 presentation. There was no word on it coming to Switch at the time, but just a couple of days later, it was announced for the console during the latest Nintendo Direct.
Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy continues the trend of cloud games on Switch. Rather than having it run natively, if you’re playing on the system, you’ll essentially be doing so through the internet.
