Very few things in gaming can fit the classic Titanic It’s been 84 years meme as perfectly as the upcoming Nintendo Switch version of Genshin Impact, which was announced more than 3 years ago. But what do we know about the version? And more importantly, has HoYoverse revealed a release date?

Genshin Impact Nintendo Switch Release Date

Unfortunately for all who hoped to finally get a decisive answer as to when Genshin Impact will be released for the Nintendo Switch, HoYoverse has not released a single official statement regarding its release date.

You can check out the official trailer for the Switch version of Genshin Impact, revealed on January 14, 2020, below:

Since the debut of the trailer above, the only official statement given by the developer regarding the game’s Switch port was given to GoNintendo on May 2022. In it, they confirmed that the version was still in development and that more news regarding it would be released in due time.

Genshin Impact Switch Leaks

Well, here comes some more bad news, as just as HoYoverse has yet to say anything regarding the Nintendo Switch version of Genshin Impact in 2023, no major leaks regarding the port’s release date or the project as a whole surfaced since the official announcement first dropped.

Will Genshin Ever Debut on Nintendo Consoles?

Taking into account that according to assumptions by many members of the Genshin Impact community, the long development and lack of updates may very likely be related to compatibility and performance problems, although we do believe that Genshin Impact will be available for Nintendo players at some point, it is very unlikely that the game will ever debut on the Nintendo Switch.
