Friday Night Funkin’ version available on Nintendo Switch

Nintendo Switch has an application called video game studio, something similar to Super Mario Maker 2, but that allows us much broader creations than Super Mario Maker, that is to say that we will be able to create video games for Nintendo Switch through this program.

Through this program many Friday Night Funkin’ fans have created several versions of the different weeks of FNF for Nintendo Switch. However, the quality they have is not the most optimal, since the animations of the characters are bad or nonexistent, the rhythm of the music does not usually fit with the charts ….

Therefore we recommend you much more to install the version of FNF for Switch as we explained in the previous section.

Nintendo refuses to include (for now) Friday Night Funkin’ on Switch

The official developers of Friday Night Funkin’ sent a version with the first 7 weeks of the game to Nintendo to release them for free on the Nintendo Switch console. However, the company Nintendo rejected at least for the moment this request, and also did not give reasons why they rejected the game, however, it is assumed that this has been because Friday Night Funkin’ is not yet in its final version, and that the game is still in development, and that they prefer to wait for the completion of the game to be available officially on Nintendo Switch.
