The Nintendo Switch version will have the same base roster as the PlayStation 4 version, and the extra characters minus Shizumaru Hisame will be released separately as part of a Season Pass (also buyable individually). Instead, the main draw of the Switch version is the ability to play portably, with the game running at 60 FPS and playable with single Joy-Cons.
