The official website also notes that cross-platform play is available between Xbox One, PC, and Switch users, allowing progression to be carried onto each platform if you just so happen to own a few different systems. Sony seems to not want to be in on the fun here, but I guess we’ll see what happens if the games does well enough and fans get to demanding the feature.
We’ll be taking the Switch version for a spin and toss up a review shortly. I have the feeling it’ll be a fun time in the way that great old Kamen Rider game on the Japanese PS1 was, but we shall see.
