Will Fall Guys Come To Switch, Xbox, Or Mobile?
Fall Guys on other platforms is still a possibility, while a mobile version is officially in the works in China.
Fall Guys launched to almost immediate success on PC and PS4, with over 2 million players on Steam alone. But if you're on Switch, Xbox, or even a mobile platform like iOS or Android, you're probably wondering if the popular battle royale game will ever branch out onto other platforms. You're in luck! Fall Guys is coming to Nintendo Switch, as announced during February 2021's Nintendo Direct--your dream of losing over and over on the go can now be a reality. We've yet to hear more about Fall Guys on Xbox, but a port isn't out of the question. There's even a mobile version in the works, but only in China.
Is Fall Guys Coming To Switch?
Fall Guys will launch on Switch this summer. The news was revealed during February 2021's Nintendo Direct.
Is Fall Guys Coming To Xbox?
A quote from Mediatonic suggests that Fall Guys may eventually come to other platforms like Xbox One, but only if fans speak up.
"To start with, Fall Guys will only be available on PS4 and Steam," the developers wrote. "We'd love to bring the game to other platforms further down the line. Please let us know on Twitter and Discord which platforms you'd like us to release on next - we'd love to see how much demand there is!"
Fall Guys On Mobile?
Fall Guys is coming to mobile platforms, but only in China, according to game industry analyst Daniel Ahmad.

There's no word on whether or not the port would also release in other markets, but we'll keep you updated.
False reports of mobile ports have made the rounds plenty of times given the game's popularity. The developers have even had to call out several Fall Guys scams. A port is clearly high in demand.
As a more goofy, approachable take on the battle royale concept, Fall Guys has earned plaudits from fans and critics alike. In GameSpot's 7/10 Fall Guys review, our critic Alessandro Barbosa called the game simple yet enjoyable. "It can be disheartening to have a game end prematurely due to uneven team matches and, worse still, when you're forced into one of Fall Guys' unsatisfying finale modes," he wrote. "But neither are enough to derail the fun Fall Guys consistently generates, with its chaotic obstacle courses and earworm soundtrack ensuring you'll be coming back for more."
