    Is Roblox Available on Nintendo Switch?

    Sadly, as of July 2023, Roblox is not officially available on the Nintendo Switch.

    It’s unclear whether the game will ever be released on Nintendo’s popular console. In 2021, David Baszucki, the CEO of Roblox Corporation, said that a Switch version of Roblox would make “perfect sense.” Nothing has come of this, however.

    Recently, rumors of a new Nintendo console have begun to spread, projecting that the Switch’s successor would be released sometime in 2023 or 2024. With a next-gen console presumably coming down the pipeline within the next year, developers might not want to waste time porting Roblox to the Switch.

    Is it Possible to Play Roblox on the Nintendo Switch?

    Yes, it is technically still possible to play Roblox on the Nintendo Switch. However, doing so can put your console at serious risk. Jailbreaking your Switch will void your warranty and could potentially brick your system if you’re not careful.

    Many desperate players also install Android on the console as a workaround, but this can lead to bugs and errors that you might be unable to fix. Until the game is officially released on the Switch, it’s best to play it on another console.

    While this method will allow you to access the entire Roblox website including the catalog and party chat, you won’t be able to play Roblox Community games on the Switch.
