The Switch version of Fall Guys finally has a release date on Switch, with Mediatonic today announcing that the game will be available on June 21, 2022. Cross-play and cross-progression will be fully supported across all platforms thanks to Epic Online Services.

Mediatonic announced the Switch version of Fall Guys in February 2021, and it was originally planned for that summer. It was then delayed indefinitely a couple of months later.

The time has almost come for major changes on the 3DS and Wii U eShops, as both stores will be ending support for credit cards in just a few days.

Back in February, Nintendo announced that it will be ending digital purchases on the two systems next March. As part of that, a few different steps are planned. The first step is that as of May 23, 2022, users will no longer be able to use a credit card to add funds to an account. Then on August 29, it will no longer be possible to use an eShop card to add funds. Download codes can still be redeemed until late March 2023.
