Fallout 3 And GTA V On Nintendo Switch – Current Status

The world of gaming is continuously moving ahead, meaning that developers not only have to develop new versions of crowd favorites but also porting best-seller games to various platforms.

If you are among those who love action role-playing games, you’ve probably heard about the rumors of GTA V and Fallout 3 being ported to Nintendo Switch.

The success of the Switch is mainly a result of its portability, and many fans believed that Nintendo would make the smart choice of bringing two of the most popular games in history to the portable system.


With the enormous popularity of Grand Theft Auto V, it’s almost a no-brainer for fans to expect the game ported on the Switch.

In 2018, CEO Straus Zelnick got everybody hyped when he confirmed that GTA V would be coming to the Switch “sooner rather than later.”

However, two years have passed, and there is no sign of GTA V on the Switch.

Experts say that some delays with the port happened because the game is so massive, and the graphics are too performant.

That means that to introduce GTA V on the Switch, developers have to optimize it as much as possible to provide a smooth experience.

Fallout 3

Rumors about Fallout 3 being ported to the Switch first appeared back in May 2018, when Bethesda tweeted a Fallout-style loading screen. Fans immediately interpreted it as a hind that a Switch port is in the works.

Speculations grew after Bethesda’s E3 2018 presentation, where a trailer featured the intro chords.

However, we learned later on that it was the trailer for Fallout 76.

In early 2019, Bethesda introduced yet another video, a Fallout-style countdown that reached “3”. That made fans even crazier, furthermore exciting them up about a remastered edition of Fallout 3.

Unfortunately, nothing was confirmed, and we have to be patient enough to see if 2020 is the year when Fallout 3 will finally be released on a Switch.
