If you enjoy Battle Royale games you might be wondering if you can play PUBG on the Nintendo Switch. The Nintendo Switch is one of the most popular consoles in the world because of its hybrid nature, and PUBG is also incredibly popular- dominating consoles, PC and mobile platforms. 

PUBG was first released in 2017 to much fanfare, and since then it has only continued to grow with the game then coming to both Xbox and PlayStation after some time. PUBG Mobile then released a year later and is largely the same game but adapted to function on phones. 

So let’s dive into whether or not the Battle Royale from Krafton is on the Nintendo Switch.
