Palia Nintendo Switch Release Date

As for the game's official launch, we have yet to confirm; however, we have a timeline for the game's release on each platform. Palia is now available to Wishlist, with pre-orders likely to arrive soon for the Nintendo Switch as the game is slated for the Holiday Season 2023 release.

Palia PC Release Date

As there will be no Betas for the Switch planned, players on PC can begin their registration now to receive the opportunity to join. However, Palia's PC launch has no release date confirmed by the developer; however, the game was recently made available through the Epic Games Store for free as of 24th October 2023.

While they'll continue providing news and updates through their social media channels and official Discord server, they will evaluate the game's development and release feedback. On the game's official Nintendo Switch release announcement post, they are working extremely hard to have its PC launch before the Nintendo Switch's release and will share an update soon.

The PC and Nintendo Switch versions are free-to-play and won't require platform-specific subscriptions like the Nintendo Switch Online subscription. The developer has stated that there is a demand for the game to be available on other platforms but will continue work on its PC and Switch versions to ensure that the game is well-supported at launch and post-launch.

Lastly, the game will support cross-platform play or crossplay for its PC and Switch versions, allowing players to play the game on all their preferred platforms. Palia will also support cross-progression, meaning your game saves will be shared between platforms, letting you continue investing your time into setting up your home and more in Palia.

Palia is currently available in Open Beta for PC, as players can install the game launcher detailed in this guide. The game is slated to be released for the Nintendo Switch on 14th December 2023.
