MiHoYo, Genshin Impact’s publisher and developer, said early on in the game’s development that their open-world gacha game will ultimately find its way to Nintendo Switch.
However, in the years after the game’s initial release in 2020, the firm has provided no fresh information on when this rumored Switch port will be published, prompting many to speculate that it had been scrapped or abandoned.
However, Gonintendo recently contacted MiHoYo to inquire about the progress of Genshin Impact’s Switch conversion, and received a response from a PR Specialist stating the Switch version is “still in production.”
Xin Yang, Global Public Relations Specialist at miHoYo: The Switch version is still under development, and we will provide more details as we go.
Despite this promise, we would advise readers to be cautiously enthusiastic about the Genshin Impact Nintendo Switch port until we hear a more public statement about when it will be published.
About Genshin Impact
Step inside Teyvat, a huge realm brimming with life and elemental force.
You and your sibling came from another planet. You have been separated by an unknown deity, robbed of your abilities, and placed into a profound sleep. You have now awakened in a world that is drastically different from the one you came in.
Thus starts your adventure over Teyvat in search of answers from The Seven – the elemental gods. Prepare to explore every inch of this magnificent planet, join forces with a varied cast of people, and uncover Teyvat’s myriad secrets…
LARGE OPEN WORLD
Climb any peak, swim any river, and glide over the planet below, soaking in the breathtaking sights along the way. And who knows what you could find if you pause to inspect a wandering Seelie or weird mechanism?
COMBAT SYSTEM ELEMENTAL
Use the seven elements to cause elemental reactions. Anemo, Electro, Hydro, Pyro, Cryo, Dendro, and Geo interact in a variety of ways, which Vision wielders may use to their advantage.
Will you use Pyro to vaporize Hydro, Electro to electro-charge it, or Cryo to freeze it? Your command of the elements will offer you an advantage in war and exploration.
With a magnificent graphic style, real-time rendering, and well crafted character animations, you can feast your eyes on the environment around you for a genuinely immersive visual experience. Natural changes in lighting and weather bring every feature of our planet to life.
SOUNDTRACK FOR SLEEPING
Allow the wonderful melodies of Teyvat to entice you as you explore the vast universe around you. The music, performed by the London Philharmonic Orchestra, varies with the time and gameplay to fit the atmosphere.
FORM YOUR DREAM TEAM
In Teyvat, join forces with a broad group of characters, each with their own own personality, story, and powers. Discover your preferred party combinations and level up your characters to help you overcome even the most formidable opponents and kingdoms.
A TRIP WITH FRIENDS
To harvest rich benefits, join forces with peers from other platforms to trigger more elemental activity, face hard boss encounters, and conquer challenging realms.
You may desire to remain in Teyvat a bit longer when you stand atop the peaks of Jueyun Karst and take in the rolling clouds and huge countryside stretched out before you… But how can you relax till you are reunited with your missing sibling? Traveler, go out and begin your quest!
