Fighting game enthusiasts are eager to know if Street Fighter 6 will be on Nintendo Switch. Rumors circulated that Capcom would be adding the title to the Nintendo Switch line-up, and we have all the latest.

No one can ignore the technical limitations posed by the Nintendo Switch where Street Fighter 6 is concerned. SF6, with its upgraded graphics and next-gen features, would certainly challenge the Switch’s hardware capabilities.

Yet, Capcom has proven before that they can tweak their creations to suit the platform e.g Resident Evil. SF6 is all set to continue its red-hot streak of dominance that it’s asserted over the last several decades with new faces, locales, and a new World Tour mode.

Street Fighter 6 will be the backbone of many fighting tournaments for years ahead, but will SF fans be able to tuck into the game on the go?

Is Street Fighter 6 on the Nintendo Switch?

Street Fighter 6 will not be on the Nintendo Switch, as confirmed by Capcom themselves. This is surely unfortunate news for those on Nintendo’s handheld phenomenon, but this is the way that many AAA games seem to go with the Switch.

Through trailers and the game’s official website, the Switch is not being advertised as a launch platform. Currently, Street Fighter will only be available to those on PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, and Steam.

However, this doesn’t necessarily represent the game’s future in several years though. For instance, the likes of Mortal Kombat 11 have brutalized their way onto the console over time – as will Mortal Kombat 1. This means that Street Fighter 6 could also follow suit at some point.

It’s been rumored for a while that a Nintendo Switch Pro or Switch 2 is in the works, and this would make a port of SF6 much more manageable. We’ll be sure to update this guide if the circumstances take a twist.
