Realm Royale

Realm Royale made it to Switch last month. However, the only way to access the game was by purchasing the “Founder’s Pack”. While it has goodies like an exclusive mount, chicken skin, and spray, Realm Royale is mainly known for its free-to-play nature.

About a month later, that option is now available to everyone. The Founder’s Pack still exists, but a separate listing has been added to the eShop for the free-to-play version. That should open the floodgates for more Switch owners to try out the Battle Royale title.

With the new Founder’s Pack, Realm Royale has debuted on Switch via the eShop. Have a look at some footage in the video below.

Following several datamines and leaks, Realm Royale has made its way to Switch. A “Founder’s Pack” is out now on the eShop for $14.99, with a free-to-play version following later on.

The Founder’s Pack includes:

Following several leaks, Realm Royale has finally been confirmed for Switch. How it was confirmed is a bit of an oddity.

A trailer for Realm Royale popped up on Nintendo Portugal’s YouTube channel today. Despite the video stating that it can be played now with a Founder’s Pack, that doesn’t actually appear to be the case. Regardless, Realm Royale is coming to Switch very soon.

Here’s the trailer in question:

At this point, it’s practically a certainty that Realm Royale will end up on Switch in the future. The game has been datamined over the past few months that has led to the discovery of references to Nintendo’s console.

Datamining has taken place once again, and even more Switch-related evidence has been discovered. This time around, fans have found an exclusive Switch Founder’s Pack. It will include a new mount skin, a chicken skin, and more.

Back in February, fans datamined Realm Royale and found a line of text pointing to a possible Switch version. Given that Hi-Rez Studios already has Paladins and Smite on the eShop, the news about Realm Royale also likely releasing on the system wasn’t a huge surprise. It also wasn’t surprising since Paladins and Smite were both leaked for Switch through datamining.

Nearly two months later, Realm Royale has been datamined again and there’s even more evidence of an upcoming Switch version. Not only has a new alpha pack been spotted, but an unfinished “Nintendo Switch Chicken” has also been found.

Hi-Rez Studios has brought Paladins and Smite to Switch. Could Realm Royale be next? A new datamine suggests so, as the text “Merge Nintendo crown” has been spotted in the game’s files.

Paladins and Smite were both leaked in a similar manner – that being datamines. While we don’t have an official announcement at this time, today’s news definitely suggests that Hi-Rez Studios has plans for Realm Royale on Switch.
