Palworld Would Not Work On Nintendo Switch, Says Studio Head

Expert Verified By

Not Happening Due To Technical Issues!

Story Highlights
  • Porting Palworld to the Nintendo Switch would be difficult because of technical issues, says Pocketpair CEO.
  • He hasn’t completely ruled out the port, but the minimum PC requirements exceed the Nintendo Switch hardware’s capabilities.
  • Reports also hint at a Palworld PlayStation port.

Palworld took the world by storm when it launched. It broke multiple records, garnering over 2 million concurrent players at one time amid huge success. However, the game is still limited to a few platforms, as it is only available on Xbox and PC.

While there are reports that a PlayStation port might be coming soon, Pocketpair’s CEO has stated that a Nintendo Switch version would be difficult to develop.

Why it matters: Based on the game’s style and design, Palworld would be a perfect fit for the handheld console. However, the Nintendo Switch has always been difficult to work with.

Fans Should Not Expect Palworld On The Nintendo Switch

While he hasn’t entirely ruled out the possibility of the port, Takuro Mizobe, Pocketpair’s CEO, has stated that the PC requirements for Palworld exceed the hardware specifications of the Nintendo Switch.

It’s hard to port to Switch just for technical reasons.

This would make it challenging to attempt a Nintendo Switch version. However, the potential arrival of a new Nintendo console next year could make things interesting since this would make the port much easier.

Various other games, like the recently released Hogwarts Legacy, have already found a home on Nintendo’s handheld console. Therefore, there is a huge market for third-party releases on this platform.

Still, Palworld will likely be limited to more capable consoles and PCs for now.

Palworld’s CEO Wants The Game On Other Platforms

Luckily, Nintendo fans have a lot to look forward to in the future. The recent Direct was a huge success with several previews and announcements. In addition, Nintendo should have more to share as the next console’s release date draws nearer.

As for Palworld, the game is still consistently seeing a lot of updates with more planned for the future. Therefore, the game could be even more fleshed out by the time it gets a Nintendo Switch release.
