Genshin Impact Switch version details

Genshin Impact, HoYoverse's open-world title, was released in September 2020 and since then has been one of the most well-known titles in the world.

From Mondstadt to Liyue to Inazuma, travellers are progressively exploring all of it Teyvat has to offer, and the game has linked up its players to collect as many anime-styled characters and weapons as possible.

For its popularity, Genshin Impact has already won multiple honors, and it is currently accessible on a number of systems, including mobile, PC, PS4, and PS5, with a Nintendo Switch version in the pipeline.

Although there are some similarities between the current Genshin game and Nintendo's iconic Legend of Zelda series, such as collecting colorful characters, attempting to defeat monolithic bosses, the vast open world, and monster-filled dungeons, there are far too many differences to distinguish Genshin Impact from the Zelda game.

Because of the similarities, many Nintendo fans are anticipating the release of the Genshin Impact Nintendo Switch version so that they may play the anime action game as well. As previously stated, Genshin Impact is now only accessible on PS4, PC, iOS, and Android, but the open-world ARPG will be launched for the Nintendo Switch soon.

Genshin Impact Nintendo Switch version

Several Genshin Impact players are asking if the game will be released on the Nintendo Switch. "When will the Genshin Impact Switch version be released?" or "When will the Genshin Impact Switch version be released?"

As an answer to that, HoYoverse has been working on the Genshin Impact Switch Version for quite some time, and to be honest, it all began with the open-world JRPG's PlayStation, mobile phone, and PC versions.

Genshin Impact Nintendo Switch leak and rumors

  • Is Genshin Impact Nintendo Switch release cancelled?

The Switch version of HoYoverse has yet to receive a release date or any other information, and many fans are still waiting for it to arrive. As a result, many rumors surround the launch of the Genshin Impact Switch Version.

And now, a new rumor is circulating in the Japanese community, suggesting that the Genshin Impact Nintendo Switch release has been cancelled.

With the broadcast of the new Genshin Ayaka and Ayato lore video on April 18, 2022, the rumor began to spread.

The description of the Ayaka and Ayato lore YouTube video did not include the normal "Planned release: Nintendo Switch" and Nintendo trademark when the video was first posted.

The news circulated quickly on Twitter and other forums in the Genshin Japanese community as the fans were quick enough to notice the missing "Planned release: Nintendo Switch".

All of this, although, proved out to be a mere error on HoYoverse's part, as a few hours later, the Nintendo Switch remark was inserted into the Ayaka and Ayato lore video description. Furthermore, the "Planned release: Nintendo Switch" and Nintendo trademark are all appropriately included in the new videos released on April 19.

However, fans' fears of the Genshin Impact Switch version being dropped are totally warranted, as HoYoverse has remained silent on the topic and has also refused to respond to our concerns.

Genshin Impact Nintendo Switch trailer

If you have any doubts regarding Genshin Impact's Switch version launch, you should be assured as HoYoverse released the Genshin Impact Switch trailer back in January 2020 only, on the official Genshin Impact YouTube channel.

Although the unveiling trailer does not show actual Switch gameplay footage, it still does offer fans a nice look at the beautiful Teyvat universe and the main character of the game, along with verifying the fact that the game will be released on the Nintendo Switch system.

Genshin Impact Nintendo Switch development progress

HoYoverse disclosed some fascinating insights about Genshin Impact Switch Version in another discussion with a famous news site, prior to the release of Genshin Impact 2.0.

Since the beginning, HoYoverse has been working and focused on the Genshin Impact Nintendo Switch Version and because Genshin Impact was designed from the start to be a cross-stage and cross-save game, it's a foregone conclusion that a Nintendo Switch version will be produced at some point.

Developers have not shared any fresh updates on the Nintendo Switch version of Genshin Impact, however, earlier, Zhenzhong Yi, Genshin Impact's technical director, revealed that the open-world JRPG with networking components was created with all stages in mind.

"Genshin Impact was continually conceived as a cross-stage game because we need to give players more opportunity on how and where they need to progress with their game," he stated.

He went on to say, "When we were planning Genshin Impact, we made certain that any new gameplay would not be heavily equipment dependent. As a result, gamers can experience the full and authentic Genshin Impact on any of the current stages."

Players should keep in mind, however, that these stages refer to PC, iOS, Android, PS4, PS5, and Nintendo Switch, as HoYoverse previously stated that the company has no intentions for an Xbox release.

In addition, during an interview with the RPG Site, Sam Lai, the head of HoYoverse communications, provided the following update: "The Switch version of Genshin Impact is now in development. More details on Switch beta testing and release dates will be revealed at a later date."

Though this information is from the past, it does give an idea that fans will be able to get their hands on the Genshin Switch version at some point.

Genshin Impact Nintendo Switch features

Genshin Impact was initially shown on June 8, 2019, a few months after the Manga was released. Many people compared Genshin Impact to a crude clone of The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild when it first came out.

However, when Genshin Impact was announced on PS4 and Nintendo Switch on the 14th of January 2020, fans found that it was a different layout.

And, following the pre-release of the Genshin Impact beta in 2020, it became clear to those that played the CBT that the game is nothing like The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild. So it's understandable that the game was intended to be released as Genshin Impact Switch from the start.

For the time being, we don't have any official information on the features of the Genshin Switch edition, but we can expect more information from the developers shortly.

Genshin Impact Nintendo Switch release date

Unlike the mobile and PC versions of Genshin Impact, which were initially set to debut in Spring 2020, HoYoverse never officially announced a Genshin Impact Switch release date.

The Genshin Impact Switch, on the other hand, is not slated to be released until the end of 2022. In any case, it's possible it'll happen soon, as HoYoverse has kept a tight lid on the situation and hasn't given any fresh details on the Genshin Impact Switch Version.

For the time being, it appears that Nintendo fans will have to wait a bit longer while the development team works to optimize the game for the Switch. It's unclear whether any unique promotional events will run concurrently with the Switch launch, but we expect Nintendo fans to receive the same promotional freebies as other platforms.
