(Pocket-lint) - One of the most enjoyable role-playing games we've played in recent years is quite possibly about to make an appearance on everyone's favourite portable console.

Kingdom Come: Deliverance is a medieval role-playing adventure where you fill the shoes of Henry, a blacksmith's son whose life is suddenly thrown into disarray as violent, bloody battles upend his world. You then adventure through a game world based on a true story of kings, heirs, castle sieges and bloody battles in a faithfully recreated landscape of 15th century Bohemia. 

What makes Kingdom Come: Deliverance interesting is you're not a knight or a master of combat, just a humble young lad trying to survive in a harsh world. 

At the start of 2021 rumours surfaced about the possibility of Kingdom Come: Deliverance coming to Switch. This was after the Royal Edition of the game appeared in the release schedule for Nintendo Switch on 18 February 2021. 

Shortly after, Warhorse Studios denied the claim, but not months later things have changed and it's now on the horizon after all:

That's all we've got for now. Just a mention that it's happening with the support of Switch port specialists Saber Interactive. 

The Royal Edition was released back in June of 2019 for PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC. It includes all the DLC for the game including Treasures of the Past, From The Ashes, The Amorous Adventures of Bold Sir Hans Capon, Band of Bastards and A Woman’s Lot. So if the same edition comes to Switch there will be plenty of content for RPG lovers to enjoy.
