Best Answer: Yes, but currently there is no release date for Genshin Impact on Nintendo Switch. The free-to-play RPG has already released on Android, iOS, PS4, and PC, so you might be able to play it on one of those platforms if you don't want to wait.

How do we know it's coming to Nintendo Switch?

Genshin Impact's developer, miHoYo, has stated that the game will be coming to the Nintendo Switch at a later date.

"The Switch version of Genshin Impact is currently under development. More information regarding Switch beta testing and launch dates will be announced at a later time."

What is Genshin Impact?

It's a free-to-play action RPG set in the fantasy world of Teyvat. Different characters wield different elements and weapons to create unique attacks. I've put at least 20 hours into this game so far and I've barely scratched the surface. There's a huge map to explore, characters to unlock, beautiful locations to visit, an interesting story to follow, and plenty of challenges to keep you busy. There's even a multiplayer co-op component that you can unlock after reaching a certain point in the game.

It does employ Gacha game mechanics and microtransactions. However, you can easily play the full game without opening your wallet and it won't hold you back from getting anywhere. I myself haven't spent any money yet, but I've been able to acquire a total of nine Genshin Impact characters using the loot box-like menu in the game.

What is the best platform to play Genshin Impact?

Genshin Impact is currently free-to-play on iOS, Android, PS4, and PC. There are several differences between the Genshin Impact versions, but which one you should play will depend on your preferences.

The PC version supports cross-saves with the mobile version, so you can play the PC version at home and then hop on the mobile version while you're out and about as long as your devices can support the software. If that's appealing to you, you should play on one of those platforms.

The mobile version does not have controller support, so you cannot pair a PS4 DualShock Controller or an Xbox Controller to your phone. If you really want to use a controller, you should consider the PS4 or PC versions of Genshin Impact. Or, you could always wait for it to come to Nintendo Switch.
