BOTW CLONE ON SWITCH?: Genshin Impact has been announced for the system, but no release date has been given.

Unfortunately, this version was delayed, and so far, there has been no official release date set.

With Genshin Impact 1.6 out in the wild, there is still no word on when fans will be able to get their hands on the Switch version, but it is expected soon, with a full release expected in mid-late 2021.

Rumors have been spreading that miHoYo may be waiting for the release of the Switch Pro, with the developer possibly having issues with a Switch port due to the limited power of Nintendo's console compared to the resource needs of Genshin Impact.
