Hearthstone On Nintendo Switch Discussed By Blizzard Developer

The Switch has an advantage over PS4 and Xbox One due to its interface, in this regard.

Posted By | On 03rd, Apr. 2017

Hearthstone is one of the most popular games in the world, with Blizzard’s free to play card game standing out due to its deviously addictive design, marrying accessibility with a shocking level of depth and nuance. It could also one day come to the Nintendo Switch.

While that is not something that has been confirmed, or even hinted at, it is something that Blizzard’s Mike Donais, who is a senior designer on the game, seems to like the idea of. Speaking to Express UK about the subject, Donais said, “I personally haven’t talked about it but I’m more focused on card design. Hearthstone is available on iPads and phones, so it’s a good discussion worth having.” Donais goes on to note, along with Blizzard’s Matt Place, that a Switch port would not require any reworking of the interface, unlike a port to the Xbox One or PS4 would- that alone gives it an advantage.

This is not the first time Blizzard has discussed bringing its games over to Nintendo’s new console- they have previously discussed Overwatch on the Switch, too. Given just how popular these games are, and just how well Blizzard’s design philosophy meshes with Nintendo’s own, these would all be a great fit for the Switch- let’s hope Nintendo and Blizzard can work together to make this a reality.
