Genshin Impact Switch release date – when will it launch?

Here's everything we know about Genshin Impact on Switch

You no longer have to wonder about the Genshin Impact release date, as the Breath of the Wild-like RPG is available right now on iOS, Android, PS4, and PC. With the buzz surrounding the co-op RPG now at an all-time high, Switch players might be feeling a bit left out. That said, Genshin Impact is still in the works for Nintendo's console. 

Yes, the Switch already has Breath of the Wild, but Genshin Impact boasts plenty of its own ideas. Aside from the characters' anime-like appearance, the combat is more hack-and-slash focused. That won't be hugely surprising to those who've played developer' Mihoyo's last game, Honkai Impact 3rd. There are also more cities to explore and inhabit when you’re not out exploring and slapping baddies with your sword. An expansive, beautiful Breath of the Wild-style world with button-mashing combat is a simple sell, but there's definitely more to this one than meets the eye. 

Now that Genshin Impact is available on iOS, Android, PS4, and PC, the question turns to its Switch release. So, we'll add any relevant information regarding the Nintendo Switch Genshin Impact release date right here. Stay tuned.
