Is Palworld Coming to Nintendo Switch?

One of the hottest games to have been released in January has got to be Palworld. For those who might be living under the rock, Palword is an open-world survival and crafting game. Palworld lets you live with various other Pals to escape from being poached. The same day Palworld was released, it broke many records. First, the game sold 12 million copies on Steam and around 7 million on the Xbox family of consoles.

So, with the game gaining insane popularity and a rather large player base, it is only fair to know if this game would be made available to other platforms such as the Nintendo Switch.

So, is the game ever coming to the Nintendo Switch? Let’s find you!

Palworld: Is It Coming to Nintendo Switch?

The honest answer to the above question is No. Palwrold will not be coming to the Nintendo Switch anytime soon. While it may come over to the PlayStation family of consoles, there is no chance of enjoying this fun little popular game on the Nintendo Switch.

One reason why the game might not make it to the Nintendo Switch is simply because Nintendo sees Palworld as a direct competition to one of its popular first-party games- Pokemon.

Apart from the competition standpoint, it can also be possible that the current generation Nintendo Switch might not be able to handle the game quite well which could define the release of Palworld for the Switch 2 which is expected to be announced in 2025.

Nintendo’s CEO, Shuntaro Furukawa has also stated that because Palworld is infringing on its intellectual property rights, they might plan to go after the devs of Palworld to get the game down for good. Apart from the fact there are many similarities between Palworld and Pokemon, there could be zero possibility of Aplwrod coming to the Nintendo Switch.
