‘Fallout Shelter’ Is Now On Nintendo Switch


In an effort to ensure Fallout Shelter is on all platforms, Bethesda revealed it will be on Nintendo Switch and PS4.  Starting now, Switch owners can create their own Fallout vault, and manage it for free.  By overseeing their own vault, players can determine and decide things from layouts to dwellers.  As the game progresses it is up to the player to keep up morale among those living in their vault.

The port to both Switch and PS4 tonight adds to an already major milestone for Bethesda.  During the conference, Game Director Todd Howard listed the number of people who have played Fallout Shelter.  Since its June 2015 launch, over 120 million people have taken the head position in their customizable shelters.  Howard also noted more people have played the game than all the other Bethesda titles combined.


Another addition to the Switch’s expanding library of Bethesda games is The Elder Scrolls: Legends.  The card-based game comes with an updated design and interface.  But will players who have already been playing the game on their mobile device lose their progress?  The answer is no.

The console version of The Elder Scrolls: Legends allows players to transfer their progress so their time playing is not wasted.  One game not mentioned for Switch is Fallout 76.  It is unknown if a Switch version is in Bethesda’s plans.  But for the time being Fallout Shelter and The Elder Scrolls: Legends are good additions to the Switch’s library.  Though walking through a radiated West Virginia with a friend via splitting the Joy-Con would be fun.
