Fall Guys mobile release date
We have good news and bad news: Fall Guys is, indeed, coming to mobile. The bad news? It’s only confirmed for China at this time. Senior analyst at Niko Partners, Daniel Ahmad, confirmed on Twitter that there will be a Fall Guys mobile edition.
Chinese games and entertainment company Bilibili has secured the rights to publish a mobile version of Fall Guys: Ultimate Knockout in China.

You can pre-register for the Chinese version of Fall Guys on mobile from the official Bilibili site. You will need an account to pre-register for iOS devices and Android.
But it’s not all bad news if you’re looking to play Fall Guys on the go, as Fall Guys is now on Switch with cross-platform play. Exciting!
Fall Guys Switch
Since being bought by Epic Games, Fall Guys developer Mediatonic has gone on to release the game for free on all three of the major platforms and PC. That means you have lots of different options for how to play it.
You can check out the Switch version here. Of course, given that Fall Guys is an online game, its portability is a little limited by the fact that the Switch has to be connected to wi-fi. The best thing about having a Fall Guys mobile port would be that you could use data. Guess we’ll have to wait and see on that front.
What’s with all of the Fall Guys clones?
The official Fall Guys Twitter account warned people not to believe any adverts about Fall Guys on mobile a while ago. It confirmed that Fall Guys is only available on PC and PS4 (at the time) and that anything else you see is a scam. The tweet also included a screenshot of one of these scams, where the mouse cursor is clearly visible on the smartphone.

If you see any ads for a mobile version they are scams
a) They're literally playing a video and pretending to play it
b) There's literally a mouse cursor on the screen
c) I don't want to live on this planet anymore
d) Yeet me into the sun pic.twitter.com/ZKfw5gVaqW

So, if you are desperate for a mobile version of Fall Guys, you’re in for a bitter disappointment. You will find fake download links on Google and the number of poorly made Fall Guys mobile clones is increasing each week. Yeet me into the sun indeed.
Can I stream Fall Guys on mobile?
You can play Fall Guys on your mobile by streaming it from your PC or from your console. You need to own a console with a copy of Fall Guys, a stable internet connection, and an external controller will help.
Here are a number of options you can try:
- Xbox remote play: App Store / Google Play
- PlayStation remote play: App Store / Google Play
- Steam Link: App Store / Google Play
- Remotr: App Store / Google Play
- GeForce Now: Google Play
- Moonlight: App Store / Google Play
Could Fall Guys run on mobile?
Fall Guys has a file size of around 4GB, which will make it one of the larger mobile games, but by no means too big. Games like Fortnite, which has a similar cartoony art style, are optimised to run on mobile and perform remarkably well. Given that Epic Games are clearly interested in getting their games on mobile, it would be no surprise if they helped Mediatonic get the job done. We’ll keep you posted as we learn more.
