Will Baldur’s Gate 3 Release on Nintendo Switch?

Baldur’s Gate 3 is taking the gaming world by storm, it has captured the imagination of RPG enthusiasts everywhere. Amidst the excitement, one question seems to echo through the community, and that is whether or not, Baldur’s Gate 3 will come to Nintendo Switch

Speculation and rumours are running rampant, fueled by the widespread desire to experience this epic tale on Nintendo’s versatile console.

Is Baldur’s Gate 3 Coming to Nintendo Switch?

In an interview in 2020, the Senior Producer of Baldur’s Gate 3, David Walgrave, stated, “We’re currently focusing on PC. We’ll start thinking about other platforms as soon as this one is done.” Since then, a release for the PS5 has been confirmed for September 6, and the studio is reportedly working on an Xbox Series X/S version.

As of now, Baldur’s Gate 3 is not planned for release on the Nintendo Switch. Despite the popularity of the console and Larian Studios’ history of porting games such as Divinity: Original Sin to the Switch, the focus remains on PC and other consoles.

One glimmer of hope for Nintendo Switch users is that the game will support cross-platform progression. This means that if a Nintendo Switch version does eventually come to fruition, players should be able to transfer their progression between platforms seamlessly.

While Baldur’s Gate 3 will not be available on Nintendo Switch at release, the game will be available on PC, Mac, and PlayStation 5, with an Xbox release slated for the future. The potential for a Nintendo Switch release remains unclear, but fans are hopeful.

What is Baldur’s Gate 3?

Baldur’s Gate 3 is an epic, next-generation RPG game developed by Larian Studios, the creators of the Divinity: Original Sin series. Set in the iconic world of Dungeons & Dragons (D&D), the game offers players a chance to delve into a grand narrative filled with diverse characters, intricate relationships, and a vast world ripe for exploration.

It allows players to choose from 12 different classes and 11 races straight from the D&D Player’s Handbook. This extends to include 31 subraces, 46 subclasses, and over 600 spells and actions, offering near-limitless freedom in creating a truly unique character and leaving a lasting legacy in the world.

Baldur’s Gate 3 utilises the new Divinity 4.0 engine, offering a highly interactive, thriving world filled with characters, perils, and deceit. Your actions shape your adventure, and your choices define your legacy in the sprawling city of Baldur’s Gate and beyond. Your decisions will have weight, influencing your relationships and the way you solve problems in this vast, detailed world.

As the game has officially exited early access this August, it’s already generating significant buzz in the gaming community. The latest offering from Larian Studios has been incredibly well received so far, with its deep narrative, intricate gameplay mechanics, and vast explorable universe living up to the hype. Baldur’s Gate 3 is shaping up to be a landmark in the RPG genre for years to come.
