According to the Nintendo Japan site, 2018’s Kingdom Come: Deliverance will release for Switch on February 21 (the same month it was released two years earlier). As spotted by Reddit user niap, this will be published by DMM Games, which is a Japanese based commerce that deals in video games, movies, e-books, and more. DMM Games also published Kingdom Come: Deliverance Royal Edition for PS4, which is now widely played across Japan.
While writing this article, there are no official announcements related to Kingdom Come: Deliverance being released on Switch. Moreover, this upcoming release was also exclusively made on the Nintendo Japanese site, and comparing other upcoming releases; this one does not have a picture beside its title.
Although, the Reddit user who came across this Switch release on Nintendo Site was spot on. He also mentioned it being included in Japanese Video Game Magazine Famitsus’s schedule, which is somewhat wrong. The Reddit user posted a picture that hasn’t been translated, and as it seems, he only considered the Japanese text that mentions the game. If you look at Famitsu’s site and dig deep plus also translate, Kingdom Come Deliverance is listed but only for PS4 and PC.
Since Kingdom Come Deliverance is developed using the CryEngine, It would be pretty hilarious and surprising to see it run on Nintendo Switch. We have seen time and time again, the best of best games that are using CryEngine struggle across all platforms. On the other side of the coin, I reckon there wouldn’t be a lot of problem since Switch could play The Witcher 3 without any problem.
In case you don’t know much about Kingdom Come: Deliverance: It was released in 2018 and features an RPG meta that has a long story focused on the Kingdom of Bohemia and the Roman Empire. The game is often regarded as one of the most accurate historical games and received the Best PC Game award at Gamescom 2017. Right now, Kingdom Come Deliverance can be played across PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC.
Right now, take this leak with a grain of salt, but if there were some official updates regarding this release, we’d update the article.
