Is Roblox Coming To Nintendo Switch? 2021 Latest news and release updates

Roblox has surged in popularity over the past few years, managing to grow a massive fanbase from various corners of the world. Some people love to create Roblox games, whilst others simply love to play people's creations.

Whatever it is that makes the free-to-play game so enjoyable, there's no question that it's comfortably one of the biggest games around. As noted by Wired.com, it was the most popular game with 5 to 12-year-olds in the US (according to Rooster Money) and in 2020 it made more cash in the UK than Fortnite.

More recently, the company began trading on the New York Stock Exchange and was valued at an eye-watering $45 billion.

When the game first launched in 2006 it was only on PC, six years later, it came to mobile devices, and eventually, it made the cross to console on Xbox One in 2015.

With Nintendo's Switch console now more popular than ever, some younger games might be wondering when (or indeed if) Roblox will ever come to Nintendo Switch. Here's what you should know.

Is Roblox Coming To Nintendo Switch?

Considering the number of platforms that the game is available on, one would think that the developers would want to get this title on Nintendo Switch at some point in the future.

Then you factor in how Nintendo Switch tends to be more child friendly compared to Sony and Microsoft's consoles, and it makes even more sense for Roblox to make its way to Switch.

That being said, there's clearly no rush on the part of the Roblox Corporation judging from the complete lack of urgency to bring the game to PS4.

However, the CEO of the company behind the game has said that Nintendo Switch as a platform makes perfect sense for the game. So, we might see it down the line.

At the time of writing, Roblox is not available on Nintendo Switch devices.

Frustrating, fans have been waiting as the system should be more than capable of playing the game if it can manage the likes of DOOM Eternal and more graphically demanding titles.

Given how unlikely it seems that we'll see a Roblox port on Nintendo Switch anytime soon, it could be worth trying one of a number of other games that could scratch that Roblox itch.

For instance, Super Mario Maker 2 is a great place to start if you want to create some 2D Mario levels.

The likes of Minecraft, LEGO Worlds and especially Fortnite Creative are also good alternatives if you're looking to play something like Roblox on Switch.
