The American video game publisher has announced that the free-to-play game won't be available on the Nintendo console until early 2020.

In a blog post, they shared: "We know how eager our players are to dive into Blades on the Nintendo Switch and we've been hard at work to make it happen. Unfortunately, amidst all the other changes we're making to Blades, we've had to delay our Switch release until early 2020. We can't wait until you can begin your quest in Blades on the Switch, and we're confident this additional time will let us deliver the polished gameplay our fans deserve. We deeply appreciate your patience! As we've mentioned in a previous Town Hall, PvP matches will be cross-platform between mobile versions and the Switch version when it releases."

Meanwhile, it was previously revealed 'Elder Scrolls Online' is too big for the Nintendo Switch as the file size - around 75 GB - is too much for the console to handle.

Matt Firor, video game producer, said: "We have thought about Switch but 'ESO' is an enormous game, and it just will not work. I would love for it to because I love Switch. It is one of the largest games ever made, and it just will not fit on Switch."
