Slime Rancher 2 is the sequel to the cult hit original that asks players to become a farmer of slimes on a world far, far away from Earth. This experience would be perfect for portable play, so this guide is focused on one question: is Slime Rancher 2 coming to Switch?

Breeding slimes for a living is certainly a unique idea for a game, especially when it’s set in space. Combine that with its first-person shooter mechanics and cute and expressive slimes themselves and it’s to see why the first game was so well received.

Is Slime Rancher 2 coming to Switch? Below, we’ll detail everything we know about whether the farming game is coming to the Nintendo console and additional information about its release.

Is Slime Rancher 2 coming to Switch?

Slime Rancher 2 is not currently on the Nintendo Switch console. Slime Rancher 2 is out on the Xbox Series X, Xbox Series S, and PC. The game is only available on the latest generation of consoles as well as PC; Slime Rancher 2 is not available on any last-generation consoles.

Since Slime Rancher 2 isn’t available on the weaker consoles of yesteryear, we doubt that Slime Rancher 2 will be releasing on the Nintendo Switch any time soon. We could see a cloud version of the game released on the console in a similar way to how Capcom brought the Resident Evil games to the Switch, but unless a Switch Pro emerges, it seems unlikely that we’ll see a proper Slime Rancher 2 release.
