Can You Play Slime Rancher 2 on Nintendo Switch?

The original Slime Rancher was a total hit. We mentioned above that it sold over five million copies, which is indeed a big feat. However, it was not available on Nintendo Switch on launch day. So how could this impact the release of Slime Rancher 2 on Nintendo Switch?

Keeping in mind that the original Slime Rancher was released in August 2017 and that the Nintendo Switch version was released fairly recently in August 2021, we make an educated guess that, while Slime Rancher 2 will not be immediately available on release on Switch, it should be coming to the platform somewhere down the line. The original game sold decently on the console so we believe that this is a matter of “when” rather than “if”. Hopefully, it happens sooner rather than later, depending on how long will it take to be adapted to the Nintendo Switch hardware by developers, and of course, for any potential “timed exclusive” deals to expire with Xbox.
