A Nintendo Switch port of Disco Elysium is in the works. Developer ZA/UM is currently hard at work making their detective game portable. It's also slated for a release on PS4 and Xbox One at some point later this year.
Speaking to BBC Radio's Game On podcast, Disco Elysium's art director Aleksander Rostov said that a Switch port of the game is currently in development. "This interview is, at this very moment, interrupting me from writing up design documentation for the user interface and input systems for the Switch port," Rostov said.
"It's going to happen soon," narrative lead Helen Hindpere then followed up with. So we know that a Nintendo Switch port of Disco Elysium is happening, but apart from Hindpere's comment of "soon," we don't really have any additional information to go on about a potential release date right now. You'd have to imagine that the Switch version of Disco Elysium would release after the PS4 and Xbox One ports, which were announced back in late 2019.
Just last week at the BAFTA Game Awards, Disco Elysium took home three prestigious awards. While nominated for a total of seven BAFTA Awards, it won the categories for narrative, debut game, and music.
Disco Elysium is actually USgamer's Game of the Year for 2019. In her glowing writeup for the "Year in Review," Senior Editor Caty McCarthy said that it was "unafraid to reckon with both the ugly and beautiful side of living, and the class and political themes it embraces resonate on an international scale."
