Aside from DLC content that was available on consoles such as the PS4 or Xbox One, there will be some cosmetics exclusive to the Switch version. The aforementioned Mama skin is likely only for the Switch. NieR Reincarnation went live in 2021, whereas NieR Automata’s original release date was 2017.

You can watch the 2B character trailer for the Nintendo Switch version of NieR Automata The End of YoRHa Edition here:

NieR Automata is canonically part of the Drakengard and NieR universe. But one does not need to have prior knowledge of those series to play it. It follows the story of 2B and 9S, both androids from the YoRHa infantry. They and other YoRHa troops are involved in a war against machine lifeforms on a post-apocalyptic Earth. Its popularity helped to push Yoko Taro’s name into the mainstream. As of February 2021, Square Enix had sold over 5.5 million units of NieR: Automata worldwide.

NieR Automata: The End of YoRHa Edition is available for pre-order, and it will come out on the Nintendo Switch on October 6, 2022. It is readily available on the PS4, Xbox One, and Windows PC.
