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.

Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy was announced for Switch today, but it won’t be running natively on the console. Similar to games like Control and Hitman 3, the game is a Cloud Version. That means you won’t be purchasing the game physically or digitally to run no Switch – instead it’ll be played through the cloud.

Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy: Cloud Version releases on October 26.
