During a guest appearance on Nintendo Voice Chat, Larian Studios CEO Swen Vincke discussed the possibility of Baldur’s Gate III eventually coming to Nintendo Switch.
When asked about Baldur’s Gate III‘s potential to come to Nintendo’s flagship hybrid, Vincke expressed doubts over the capabilities of the latest iteration of the console, stating 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.
While it is a careful response to the question, Vincke does not rule out the chance of a Switch port of Baldur’s Gate III in the future.
