The gorgeous free-to-play game Genshin Impact has seen incurable success on PlayStation consoles, PC and mobile devices, and was announced as coming to the Nintendo Switch back in 2020. Since then we haven’t really heard much about a Nintendo Switch version, apart from the fact that the developers had been struggling with the game due to the Switch hardware. When reached out to, the company’s PR team stated that the game is still coming that they will share more information once development progresses. It is hard to fathom how well Genshin Impact would run on the current Switch hardware, though as far as miHoYo PR team are concerned, it is still coming to Nintendo Switch.

Thanks to Greatsong1 for sending in the news tip!
I play this game just about every day and I’d be glad to add it to my Switch collection. I can understand, though. PS4 version is rough as it is and even Genshin mobile requirements is technically above the Switch. Sounds like they plan to make it work somehow, though.
I really want this for the switch as well it’s one of my favorite games
Well I don’t play this game for the most part but I do like the characters in the game in Genshin Impact. However, I still have no plans on playing this game but I might give it a shot and try it out.
I’ll believe it when I see it.
Personal guess? I think we won’t see Genshin Impact on a Nintendo console until the Switch’s inevitable successor arrives.
You are welcome Sickr! :)
I tried the game on PS4 some time ago. In terms of gameplay, and without all the gacha stuff in consideration, GI is alright but in the long run I got quite bored with it. Glad for everyone who still enjoy it though.
Man I have been waiting so long for this game to come to switch, that I broke down and bought a new phone just so I could play it
I just got a new phone this week and its S9. I’m planning on trying out the game soon to see if I like it.
Why is it the Switch version takes the longest? Wouldn’t the games on the more power consoles take the longest?
Honestly, Yes it does. It depends on the hardware. This game is not on Xbox and PS5 as of yet.
