The Absence of Dumbledore in Hogwarts Legacy for Nintendo Switch

The highly anticipated Nintendo Switch release of Hogwarts Legacy is just around the corner, scheduled for November 14. Fans of the magical world of Harry Potter are eagerly awaiting the chance to explore Hogwarts and experience the enchantment firsthand. However, there is one burning question on the minds of Switch fans: Will Albus Dumbledore, the beloved headmaster of Hogwarts, be part of the game?

Unfortunately, the answer is no. Despite the hopes and expectations of fans, Dumbledore will not be featured in Hogwarts Legacy, even in the Nintendo Switch release. This decision was made based on the timeline of the game, which is set in the early 1800s. At that time, Dumbledore would not have been old enough to attend Hogwarts, making his appearance in the game logically impossible.

While fans may be disappointed by this news, they might still hold out hope for some sort of tribute to Dumbledore in the game. However, details about any potential tribute have not been revealed yet, and fans will have to wait until the game's release on the Switch to find out.

The delayed release of Hogwarts Legacy for the Nintendo Switch was primarily due to hardware limitations. The game requires a significant amount of RAM, which the Switch's 4 GB was unable to provide. To ensure that the game maintains its graphical quality while also performing adequately, the developers needed more time to optimize it for the Switch.

Speculations suggest that the Switch version of Hogwarts Legacy will run at a 720p resolution, targeting a stable 30 frames per second. Although it may not be as visually advanced as its counterparts on other platforms, this compromise strikes a balance between performance and quality.

It's clear that the absence of Dumbledore in Hogwarts Legacy for the Nintendo Switch release may disappoint some fans. However, the opportunity to explore the magical world of Harry Potter on the Switch is still a thrilling prospect, and players can look forward to embarking on their own adventures at Hogwarts.
