Happy?Ring-a-ding-ding baby

At yesterdays Bethesda conference, Todd Howard announced that Fallout Shelter would be coming to Switch.

It has since gone live on the Nintendo eshop and is available to download for free.

3 years after its original launch on mobile devices, the hugely popular title has been downloaded over 120 million times.

According to Howard, its sales eclipse all other Bethesda titles combined. Very impressive indeed if you think Skyrim has been released on every platform ever, now including Amazon Alexa….

Game overview

Fallout® Shelter puts you in control of a state-of-the-art underground Vault from Vault-Tec. Build the perfect Vault, keep your Dwellers happy, and protect them from the dangers of the Wasteland.

Vault-Tec has provided the tools, but the rest is up to you. What are you waiting for? Get started building your Vault today for free.

Key Features:

Build the Perfect Vault
Create a brighter future…underground! Select from a variety of modern-day rooms to turn an excavation beneath 2,000 feet of bedrock into the very picture of Vault Life.

Oversee a Thriving Community 
Get to know your Dwellers and lead them to happiness. Find their ideal jobs and watch them flourish. Provide them with outfits, weapons, and training to improve their abilities.

A well-run Vault requires a variety of Dwellers with a mix of skills. Build a Radio Room to attract new Dwellers. Or, take an active role in their personal lives; play matchmaker and watch the sparks fly!

Explore the Wasteland
Send Dwellers aboveground to explore the blasted surface left behind and seek adventure, handy survival loot, or unspeakable death. Find new armor and weapons, gain experience, and earn Caps! But don’t let them die!

Protect Your Vault
From time to time, idyllic Vault life may be disrupted by the dangers of post-nuclear life. Prepare your Dwellers to protect against threats from the outside…and within.
