The most Nintendo-like game not created by the big N itself is finally coming to Switch, and we won’t have to wait too long. During today’s Nintendo Direct, Fall Guys was finally announced for the hybrid platform – cue screams of joy from basically everyone.
We didn’t get a chance to see it in action, with an animated trailer taking the place of gameplay, but, given the cartoon art style, we can’t imagine there will be serious issues with this running on Switch hardware. Hopefully we’ll learn more soon about specifics soon though, as we’ve been waiting/hoping/praying for a Switch port of one of last year’s breakout multiplayer hits for some time.
When can you expect to play it? Well, that’s where there is slightly less than good news. It’s definitely coming this year, but in the vague “summer 2021” window. That puts it between July and September, so it could still be a little wait yet. The real question is, will cross platform support make an appearance? That would be a very welcome feature indeed.
You can bet we’ll keep you posted as we ramp up to launch. In the meantime, check out the official trailer for Fall Guys Switch below in case you’re one of the few that hasn’t heard of it yet.
