I think they're probably going to try and get the Switch version ready in time for a simultaneous localization of it and the PS4 version. And probably the 3DS one if Nintendo step in to help like they did the remakes and Bravely Default.

3 visual styles in one package. That's the dream.
Yup. Not going to happen but would love if this was the version the Switch got. Since by that time it doesn't make any sense to release the 3DS version overeas. However they could still port that version as apart of the Switch version and get more sales.

Sad. I hoped it was the improved 3DS version since I'll be getting the PS4 version first. Now, I have to buy the 3DS version :(

It was obvious it would be the HD game, way easier to port than the 3DS version, but kinda sad since the West will probably never see the latter.

This was obvious. Still, the 3DS version is my most wanted one, so I hope it manages to get localized.

As someone who's already getting it on PS4 that would be awesome. Now I have no reason to get the switch ver. if it's just a downgraded PS4 game. Graphics trump portability in a game that looks like this.
As pretty as the art is i cant see them needing to do that much of a downgrade to get it running on switch

Kind of hoping they’d port the 2 3DS versions as an all in one package for the wait.
Not sure if there’s DLC or something too add otherwise

Same, I'm pretty scared of 3ds version not coming west and I really want to play it in classic 2d style. Was hoping Switch would be an updated 3ds version since I can just get the more advanced version on ps4.

Please localize 3ds version!

Saw this on reddit not too long ago. Surprise it wasn't posted here. Hope the effort put into this gets Switch owners a good version.

On the one hand, provided it is a good port, I'd rather play the UE4 version on Switch than on PS4. Hybrid functionality is a great boon.

On the other hand, people here have convinced me to doubt the 3DS version's coming over. So I kind of hoped Switch version, which is more likely to come over, preserved the 3DS version.

Really, though, I want Switch to be 2D/UE4 Ultimate edition :p.

3DS 3D is attractive too though :(.

Makes my choice easier now. Will get the switch and 3DS version now. Was gonna get PS4 and Switch assuming Switch was beefed up 3DS version,

Let’s not act as if this was obvious. It really could’ve gone either way especially since SE was and still is silent on it.
No it couldn't. How many 3DS to switch ports have you even seen? (MH:XX is litterally the only notable one). Why would it make more sense to completely design the 3DS version to make it acceptable (or port as is...) on the switch rather than downgrade the PS4 version that's built on UE4?

It had an incredibly small chance of happening

Personally I would rather have a enhanced version of the 3DS game and not a downgraded PS4 port but whatever.

Very curious how this turns out. I expect it will ready for the western release whenever that is

You serious, not to downplay that at all, it still looks great, but Ive been more impressed with xenoblade 2

Not for me; if we get anything coming close to that on a portable I'm going for the Switch version.
