Can MMORPG Be For Nintendo Switch?

So now we have the Nintendo Switch out and already has a large amount of games you can play. I can say that the controls are very different than what I am used to. It is sort of like you are playing the Wii, but just the control differences.

So, can MMORPG be for Nintendo Switch? Is it all that cracked up to be? Is everything going to be ok? The answer is YES. Nintendo Switch is already working on getting a lot more online games into the system by programming Nintendo Switch Online.

Japan has already released a couple games in this category. Now there are some that were made outside of Japan. Ready to check them out. Let’s see what we have here.


I have watched my friend play this on the Playstation 4 and got almost addicted, which is great and all. But how is it on the Switch? It is still free to play and based on PvE as you are a robot ninja thing (that’s what they are right?). Anyways, playing Warframe on its own makes you look like a top notch gamer, right? It’s has a little similarites with Halo when it comes to jumping through the air and shooting with missions and all. The fun never stops. There is a lot to discover once you are getting into the game.

It may seem like the Switch is too complicated to keep up with the game. When Panic Button brung Warframe to the new system, everyone went nuts. The game runs smoothly with the Switch like it always does with any other system. I would say to give this one a go on the new system. The game itself is already fun, so take it for a spin and get into action with the Nintendo Switch.

Final Fantasy XIV

One of Final Fantasy’s wonderful games has made it to the Nintendo Switch! The latest content has been updated for the game for the console. Naoki Yoshida, the producer, states that he would like to have the game played on all systems available including the PC. Having FF XIV would be literally a massive big step with an amazing experience on the Switch. Square Enix already has a couple of MMO games from Japan, but FF will win the big numbers.

I think it would be great if FF XIV was portable to play for all players. The more players, the better. There is the pocket edition for FF XV, but is it on the Switch? Not yet. Last year, I seen a lot of players talking about how Sony did not want to cooperate
and make the dream come true. Like what the players always say “Games are suppose to bring us together, not close us apart”. Sony had their reasons I guess. Do you think they will come to their senses and agree with the fabulous idea?

Elemental Knights

For this game, I have seen a lot of good reviews and a lot of bad reviews. The good news is that this is what some players were looking for, others say that is is garbage and a waste of time and that the Switch cannot handle such a game. I disagree on this because I believe that the players cannot handle the game on a different console, not the other way around.Another bad review was about that is sometimes available in Japanese language only. All you have to do is change the settings in the Switch and change it to English.

EK may be a bit pricey for MMO, but think about all of the possibilities that the game will have to offer. Although, it is free on the mobile device, it may or may not be better to play on your bigger tv screen. If you guys watch the gameplays, I am sure you will come around and try the game out for yourself. I know I will.

Phantasy Star Online 2

This is my first time hearing about this game. It has been a really long time since they have made Phantasy Star Online Zero back in 2008. Sakai, the creator, wants to expand the game to as many platforms possible. I think this is a good idea because the more you put your games on all of the platforms so all players can enjoy it.

The game takes a while to download and requires 60 GB to be available, so have the space ready. A lot of new users are ready to play in portable mode or tv mode. Sakai says that it was a great opportunity to have his game joined inside of the Nintendo Switch. The only thing is that moving the player around may not respond when wanting to move the player. This is what the creator is working on to make sure the game run as smooth as possible. Overall, the game is a really good game for new users that want to start MMORPG gaming.

Get the PSO2 Cloud before you download


It just so happens that I have this game on my iPad. The sad thing is, I never got to play it. Everytime I tried to get it started, it either crashed or stopped loading. So i never got the true experience. Avabel first released in 2013 on smartphones. Now they are wanting to take things a step further and bring it to the Switch.

Do you think this could work? I feel like Avabel is too big of a game that has a lot of content and animation going on. And I believe that the Switch would not be able to handle all of the things and events that are in the game. It may lag. The release date has not yet been published.

I hope that some of these games can come to a conclusion and join the Nintendo Switch experience. I would love for all the players to play on any device available. The only reasons why some of these games may not make it is because they think that the system will not be able to handle all the pressure and keep these games running without lag and dissapointment.

Having these situations in thought can make the players not want to play anything at all. Or maybe its because some players that I know are very impatient. I for one am not one of those people. There will be more games added and upcoming release dates. Are you thinking about getting the Switch? Let me know in the comments below.

Make the Switch!

    I’ve been a fan of Massively Multiplayer Online Role-Playing Games for a while, but I always play on a my PS4. My kid got a nintendo switch for Christmas last year, and to be honest, I haven’t really played anything other than Dance Reveloution on it.

    I am a fan of the Final Fantasy series, and that would be great if it came out on the switch, I’d probably go buy my own so I could goof off at work all day. Can’t really hook up a PS4!

      Hi James! I have been a fan of MMORPG since I was thirteen and have not been able to stop playing them.You should check out the new games they have available on the Switch. Dance Revolution sounds really fun to play, I should check that out. I have a friend that is also a big fan of the entire FF series and has played every single one. I cannot wait to get into it as well. Make sure not to get in trouble playing at work. Your breaks are the best time to do so when relaxing.

    Great post and good info.

    Honestly, I really think it is possible, we have a switch now, with Pokémon, and it is so good, the graphics, and it runs so smoothly. 

    I don’t say it is like a computer, but it comes close. 

    If I only knew earlier, I wouldn’t have bought a big gaming PC but stayed with this. 

    Anyway, thanks for sharing it with us.

      Hi Emmanuel, Pokemon has always been a popular game to play and just keep coming out with more. If the Switch can handle the system of a popular game, then it can handle any other game. It is kind of close to a computer but just portable with different controls. Why not have a bigger and better PC along with the Switch. The more the merrier, right?

    The truth is, I am new to gaming, and have only fooled around a bit on a friend’s playstation, but never got serious. What do you think is the best starting point for someone like me? Do you have a recommendation on how to you know, get into the psychology of what is going on here, playing the game?  I looked at your tips for beginners… do you actually engage other players once you get the hang of it?

      Hi there! I am glad you are wanting to get into gaming a little bit more and ready to try something new. If you would like to get into gaming, you should first try a little bit of each game genre. You can do a little bit of action to adventure to fantasy to classic to the new games that have came out recently. I heard the game called Apex is out and popular. I have not tried it yet but it may be a good idea to see what everyone is talking about. Also, if you would like to get your friends or family into gaming as well, you can first ask them some questions of what they would like to play or what are their best interests or hobbies. There are many games that fit most hobbies. If they like to socialize, you can get them to play an online game that requires talking with others. If they like to watch crime shows or action movies, you can get them to play the newest shooting or action games.

    This Nintendo switch out is the best move they have made not only going to raise them more income but make it more user friendly.

    I love Nintendo but at some point I got bored but now which is switch out I bet it Nintendo is going to top and would be more fun.

    Thanks for this post.

      It is good that MMORPG games can be available on this system. Not a lot of people think it can get the job done but I believe it can. I am still thinking of switching to the Switch myself to see what they all have to offer. I do agree that the original Nintendo got a little boring when no more games were available for it, so now the Switch is taking place and is doing a great job so far.

    For my work and my age, I am not someone who can sit a long time playing with a console, even NX. But I love video games especially the MMORPGs and when I can I play them on my iPhone like Dungeon Hunter 5 or Eternity Warriors III. It is fascinating to see how technology is continuously evolving and that there are already people working to transfer many of these fantastic games to Nintendo Switch. Thanks!

      Hi Tommy! Sometimes just sitting in one spot is not good for the body and the brain. It is good to move around when you can and still be able to play your favorite games. I cannot wait for my favorite games to be available on the Switch if they make it there.

    This has been a great post! I love to play video games and would want all the games to be on all the systems because of course not everyone can buy every system just to play the games that they like. I have just recently gotten an xbox one with Final Fantasy 15 and Dead Rising 3 and 4. I have considered getting a Nintendo Switch for my daughter who has a Wii and she would love to play Zelda Breath of the Wild as she loves all things Zelda. I love the fact that you can play on the big screen as well as taking it with you, it is the only system that has that mobile factor which is great.

      I can agree with you 100%. If more of the games we love were available on the Switch, it would be a dream come true. Final Fantasy is really starting to come along well on all of the game systems available. I am too a big fan of Zelda. My favorite one is Zelda: A Link to the Past. I used to watch my mom play it all the time when I was little. The Nintendo Switch can do many great things making it portable and playable on small and big screen.
