Though the exact release dates for Palia have not been announced, the developers assure that they are still in active Alpha testing for PC. The team is committed to offering the same support and investment on both PC and Nintendo Switch. In fact, they announced in an editorial update that they are working diligently to bring Palia to PC before it lands on Switch.
As for the cost of the game, Palia is free-to-play and will not require a subscription on the Nintendo Switch. This move aligns with Singularity 6’s business model across both PC and Nintendo Switch platforms.
The developers also confirm that there is a team specifically dedicated to adapting Palia for the cozy Nintendo Switch experience, but how this experience will differ from the PC version remains to be seen.
At present, the primary focus is to make Palia available on Nintendo Switch and PC. The demand for Palia on other platforms has been noted, and any future announcements regarding this will be made via official channels.
Lastly, for those wondering about cross-platform play, the developers express their intention to support cross-progression and cross-play. This would allow players to transfer their Palia character from PC to Nintendo Switch or vice versa. However, as the finer details are still being worked out, players are advised to stay tuned for further updates.
In all, it seems that this holiday season will be an exciting one for both PC and Nintendo Switch gamers, as they get to dive into the immersive world of Palia.
