Are there plans for an Elden Ring Switch port?

Sadly, brave Tarnished, the answer is no. There are no plans to release Elden Ring on Nintendo Switch. To be honest, we don’t think the impressive title is ever going to have a place on the hybrid console, which is a crying shame, considering our sister site, The Loadout, gives the game a score of ten in their Elden Ring review. Still, we can dream, hope, and pray that maybe the Nintendo Switch 2 is deemed worthy enough of being another home for Elden Ring.

Considering the fact that Elden Ring isn’t on Nintendo Switch, it should come as little surprise that its expansion, Shadow of the Erdtree, is also absent from the hybrid console. However, you can enjoy the DLC should you own the game on PC, Xbox, or PlayStation upon its release on June 20, 2024.

What are the Elden Ring platforms?

If you’re lucky enough to own other consoles besides the Nintendo Switch, you can pick up Elden Ring on PlayStation, Xbox, and PC. If you do, we suggest you pay a visit to The Loadout, as our sister site can help you discover the Elden Ring Larval Tear locations, Elden Ring’s best weapons, and Elden Ring map locations.

Is Elden Ring Steam Deck compatible?

Yes! You can play Elden Ring on the go if you have a Steam Deck, as the game is compatible with Valve’s handheld PC.

Will Shadow of the Erdtree be on Nintendo Switch?

As the base game isn’t on Nintendo Switch, the upcoming Elden Ring Shadow of the Erdtree DLC most certainly won’t be on the platform. Who knows, with the advancement in technology we anticipate seeing in the Switch 2, perhaps From Software’s masterpiece will be on a Nintendo console one day.

Will Elden Ring be released on the Nintendo Switch 2?

We can’t say one way or the other. Until Nintendo unveils its next console and shows us what it’s capable of, it’s impossible to say whether or not there’s a chance that Elden Ring will release on the Switch 2. However, as the current console can run the likes of The Witcher 3 and Skyrim, there’s a chance that its successor could have a home for Elden Ring. Either way, we’ll be sure to let you know about the likelihood as more details on the mysterious hardware come to light.

There you have it, the answer to the pressing question, is there an Elden Ring Switch port? If you want to play some games of a similar nature that are on Nintendo’s console, our lists of the best hard games, Soulslike games, and games like Dark Souls can help you out.
