Larian Studios CEO Isn’t Ruling Out Baldur’s Gate 3 for Nintendo Switch
Baldur's Gate 3 might eventually come to Nintendo Switch, or at the very least the possibility hasn't been ruled out by Larian Studios.
Larian Studios’ CEO and founder Swen Vincke recently spoke on Nintendo Voice Chat about Baldur’s Gate 3. When asked how he felt about the potential of porting Balder’s Gate 3 to the Nintendo Switch, Vinke answered with the following:
I honestly don’t know. I don’t know what the next Switches are gonna look like. On this particular Switch, that might be a bit problematic. There are quite a lot of upgrades that have been done on BG3, so I think it would be very, very hard. But then again, never say never. You never know. Maybe we’ll figure out some magic trick and it’ll work. I just hope personally as a fan the next Switch will have triple the power and triple the battery life. It’s an amazing device. I just hope it has a very long life with lots of upgrades that we can keep on playing all the games we’re playing on other consoles when we’re on the go.
So while we won’t be seeing such a port of the popular title anytime soon, hopefully we could see it in the future once any of the stated criteria is sorted out. Meanwhile, check out the video below for that Baldur’s Gate 3 section of the interview, as well as a host of other covered topics.
This isn’t the first time Baldur’s Gate 3 was teased and eventually revealed for other consoles. What seemed to be the developer teasing either a third Divinity: Original Sin game or a third mainline Divinity game on its website turned out to be BG3 instead. And later on the title was officially announced for Google Stadia.
If you’re still worried about the time period for the game, remember that this studio recently stated that it’ll come out for Stadia “when it’s ready” and they’ll be taking the time needed for it, to make sure it has everything right. So that same time and care would naturally be put into any ports of Baldur’s Gate 3 to ensure its quality.
