Genshin Impact will be released on the Nintendo Switch

Genshin Impact, one of the most popular games of recent years, will be released on the Nintendo Switch, official representatives of the studio miHoYo have confirmed. In a comment to the publication GoNintendo, they assured that the version for the hybrid platform has not been canceled and continues to be in development. The authors will be ready to share additional details later.

Initially, Genshin Impact was created in versions for iOS, Android and PlayStation 4, where it was released on September 28, 2020. PlayStation 5 received its version in April 2021.

"The Switch version is still in development," the message says.

Recently, netizens noticed that the Switch tag was no longer mentioned under the new Genshin Impact videos on YouTube and suggested that the developers had canceled this version. In response, miHoYo promptly added the necessary tags and assured that the game would be released on the popular Nintendo console.

Why hasn't Genshin Impact been released on the Nintendo Switch yet?

The exact release date was not announced, so it is not known whether it really takes so much time to prepare the version or whether the developers still have problems, and in this regard, the postponement of the release.

There are a lot of rumors surrounding the reasons for the possible delay. Here are some of the most plausible:

  1. Nintendo has weak hardware – a popular and controversial version that appeared on Twitter on the Genshin Report channel. Genshin Impact is not the most demanding game, and the console pulls quite powerful games. If we take into account the performance problems on the PS4, then their cause lies in optimization, not in weak hardware.
  2. Perhaps the reason is in the Nintendo store and the company did not come to an agreement on revenue sharing.
  3. There is an assumption that the collaboration with Sony does not yet allow the game to be transferred to other platforms.

None of the assumptions has been officially confirmed, so we can only guess at the real reasons for the delay.

When will Genshin Impact be released on Nintendo Switch? Approximate release date

Fans continue to wait, but the constant silence of the developers has given rise to doubts and assumptions about the cancellation of the Switch version. Recently, GoNintendo approached the PR man HoYoverse about this, and here's what he replied:

Xinyang: "The Switch version is still in development. We will reveal more information as we go along."

It was not possible to find out even the approximate release date from the PR manager. I am glad that the project has not been curtailed, and sooner or later the game will appear.

According to leaks, there is a possibility of a release in late 2022 – early 2023, as the company is waiting for the release of a new Nintendo console (perhaps the game will be exclusive to the new device). But we recommend to be skeptical about this information, since there is no official confirmation.
