Fall Guys: Ultimate Knockout

At the end of April, Mediatonic delayed the Switch version of Fall Guys to an unspecified date. Some had hoped that we’d be seeing it land on the console along with Season 6, but unfortunately, that won’t be happening. 

Mediatonic confirmed today that it will have more information to share in 2022 about the Switch version of Fall Guys. That means the delay will indeed stretch beyond this year. Mediatonic said that the Switch version is “one of our top priorities in active development”.

With Super Bomberman R Online just about to launch on Switch, Konami has already revealed a special collaboration for the game. Players will be able to claim an exclusive “Bean Bomber” playable character as part of a partnership with Fall Guys: Ultimate Knockout.

Konami says that Bean Bomber “is able to dive around the battlefield, trying not to stumble into too many bombs as players compete against one another in the new Battle 64 online mode and more.”

Super Bomberman R Online is due out for Switch tomorrow, May 27.


Fall Guys: Ultimate Knockout will not be making its original summer launch on Switch (and Xbox). Mediatonic announced a delay, and a new release window has not yet been provided.

The full statement reads:

Mediatonic, the developer behind Fall Guys: Ultimate Knockout, today announced that it has been acquired by Epic Games.

Epic tends to be centered around PC these days. Fortunately though, the recently-announced Switch version won’t be impacted. Mediatonic says it still intends to bring the title to Nintendo’s console.

Regarding the decision to team up with Epic, the developer explained:

Devolver Digital and Mediatonic’s popular massively multiplayer party game Fall Guys: Ultimate Knockout is coming to Switch, the two sides revealed during today’s Nintendo Direct presentation.
