The original article follows.
The hit multiplayer game of last summer, Fall Guys is coming to Nintendo Switch! It’s going to be a little while away from now though, with the Nintendo Direct stating that the game will only arrive on Switch this summer. In other words, the end of a timed exclusivity period is coming to an end.
The announcement follows on from comments stating that Fall Guys will be coming to every major platform at some point in the future. CEO and co-founder Dave Bailey told GI.Biz “We want it to come to every major platform, and we’re working hard to achieve that.” He also hints that cross-platform play will be enabled, “We want to come to all the different platforms, and hopefully connect those platforms so people can play together.”
It’s not long since the official Xbox Instagram account stated that smash hit multiplayer scramble Fall Guys was coming to Xbox Game Pass as well but Devolver Digital have quickly refuted this claim. A mobile version of Fall Guys is also in development for the Chinese market and Mediatonic will be closely monitoring how that performs.

The success of the game has meant Mediatonic have been expanding quickly, bringing on new staff to work on the game to satiate the hungry players who demand regular content, “It’s unbelievable how insatiable people’s appetite for content is,” comments Bailey.
There’s clearly more afoot than just the regular season and mid-season drops, and Nintendo Switch is likely just the first announcement of several to come through the first half of this year. For now though, the game remains off in the distance and developer Mediatonic are likely still focussing on producing more levels, game modes, gameplay quirks and cosmetics for the upcoming Season 4 update. We don’t know when that will kick off exactly, but they recently released a Fall Guys mid-season 3.5 update to keep things fresh for players.
