Perhaps fans began asking for a Nintendo Switch port after hearing that Kingdom Come: Deliverance?was in fact not going to be available on the hybrid console. The fan feedback must have been significant, since Warhorse Studios has shared that the developers are grateful for the “influence gamers worldwide can have on game development.” As a result, it was apparently fan uproar that generated enough?means?for an eventual Switch port and not a discreet plan that the developers had in the works.
Kingdom Come: Deliverance?boasts dynamic, nonlinear questlines with branching dialogue in an open world, and it will be interesting to see how well Saber Interactive ports the sprawling game onto the Switch. Nintendo Life also notes that?Saber Interactive was capable of porting?The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, another hugely sizeable open-world game, so it seems the game is being placed in the right hands.
It was then fortunate happenstance that?Kingdom Come: Deliverance?was incorrectly listed as coming to the Nintendo Switch, because it would ultimately result in an official port being produced. The Switch port’s launch window is currently uncertain as the collaborative effort of both teams is underway in adapting?Kingdom Come: Deliverance. Nonetheless, fans whose outspoken feedback manifested the game onto the Nintendo Switch may be excited in the meantime.
Kingdom Come: Deliverance?is available now on PC, PS4, and Xbox One, with a Switch release in development.
