Don’t rule out the idea of Hearthstone on Nintendo Switch just yet

During an interview with Trusted Reviews, Blizzard Entertainment said it wouldn’t rule out the potential release of Hearthstone on Nintendo Switch.

Speaking at BlizzCon 2017, Hearthstone senior game designer Peter Whalen said ‘I dunno, I don’t think anyone is working on it, but I wouldn’t rule it out either.’

‘Moving to tablets and phones was awesome. It made Hearthstone way more accessible for way, way more people, which is fantastic,’ Whelan continued.

Whelan explained that ‘if there are other consoles or platforms that are good for us then that’s absolutely something we’d explore in time.’

Hearthstone is currently available on Windows, Mac, iOS and Android devices. Nintendo Switch would be an ideal platform for the F2P card title, so long as it maintains an active player base.

The latest expansion, Kobolds and Catacombs, was revealed during BlizzCon 2017 and is set to launch across all platforms in December 2017.

‘It’s our dorky, nerdy love letter to everything to do with classic games, everything tabletop gaming,’ Hadidjah Chamberlin told Trusted Reviews.

Kobolds and Catacombs will also introduce a new single-player mode called Dungeon Run. This plays much like a rogue-like, giving players a unique deck as they take on a series of different opponents.
