There are few more popular games in the modern era than Elden Ring. The open-world game from FromSoftware smashed player count records just days into its release in early 2022, and has not looked back since. With an upcoming DLC, Shadow of the Erdtree, coming up soon as well, Elden Ring remains in the limelight in 2023.

However, there are some members of the video game community that have yet to experience the 2022 Game of the Year. Namely, Nintendo Switch players have not had the chance to play the game if they only own the Switch console. Naturally, these players are curious if and when they will ever get the opportunity to explore the Lands Between for themselves. In this guide, we'll reveal all about a possible Switch port for Elden Ring.

Elden Ring: Nintendo Switch Players Have To Look For Alternatives

At the time of writing, Elden Ring is available for every other major console, including the PlayStation 4 and 5 and the Xbox One and Series X|S. Unfortunately, there are currently no plans to add the Nintendo Switch to this list.

Developer FromSoftware has not revealed anything about possibly developing an Elden Ring port for the Switch, and that will likely not change anytime soon. Elden Ring is a massive game and graphically intense as well, even struggling to run on the PS4 and Xbox One. In order to get the game running on a Switch, the developers would have to seriously downgrade the graphics, at the very least.

Basically, Elden Ring on the Switch would have a tremendously difficult time trying to run, as the Nintendo console simply isn't powerful enough. While this could change in the future, possibly with a more advanced line of Nintendo Switches, Elden Ring does not look to be arriving on the console anytime soon.
