Gotham Knights: Explosive Leak Fuels Speculation of Nintendo Switch Port

Fresh evidence strengthens the possibility of Gotham Knights, developed by WB Games Montreal, making its way to the Nintendo Switch, delighting fans with a potential port nearly a year after its initial launch


A new leak suggests that Gotham Knights is being ported to the Nintendo Switch, adding support to previous signs of a Switch version.

Fans are speculating that an official announcement of Gotham Knights on the Switch is imminent, based on the rating found on a Korean website. Despite reservations regarding the Switch's graphical capabilities, the success of previous ports such as The Witcher 3 and Skyrim offers some reassurance.

A recent leak suggests that Gotham Knights, developed by WB Games Montreal, may be getting a Nintendo Switch port. This game presents a unique storyline where Batman dies, leaving the responsibility of protecting Gotham City to his protégés: Nightwing, Batgirl, Robin, and Red Hood. While it incorporated elements from the acclaimed Batman Arkham series and introduced new features, Gotham Knights received mixed reviews from gamers due to its emphasis on loot systems, a user interface resembling free-to-play mobile games, and somewhat clunky combat mechanics.

Initially released on PC, PlayStation 5, and Xbox Series X/S, there are indications that WB Games Montreal is considering bringing this team-based superhero game to the Nintendo Switch. The ESRB's official website recently updated the Gotham Knights page to include the Switch as a potential platform, and a similar rating for a Switch port has appeared in Singapore. Fans speculate that the announcement for this hypothetical Switch version of Gotham Knights may be made soon, despite its absence from September's Nintendo Direct livestream.

Now, according to a report by, the currently unconfirmed Nintendo Switch port of Gotham Knights has surfaced on a Korean ratings website. This marks the second time that the Nintendo Switch has been mentioned by a ratings website, following the earlier leak in Singapore regarding Gotham Knights. Typically, such ratings precede an official announcement, leading many fans to believe that WB Montreal is indeed working on a Switch version of Gotham Knights, even though no official confirmation has been made yet. The Korean website also assigned a rating of ages 15 and up to Gotham Knights due to its depiction of violence, occasional language, and the inclusion of alcohol and cigarette references.

If Gotham Knights does come to the Switch, one aspect to keep an eye on is how the game performs on Nintendo's older console. The game faced criticism for running at only 30 FPS on the PS5 and Xbox Series X/S, even after the cancellation of the PS4 and Xbox One versions due to technical issues. Concerns about the Switch's graphical capabilities have recently arisen with the release of Mortal Kombat 1, which received backlash for its Nintendo Switch port and numerous graphical problems.

However, the Nintendo Switch has seen many successful and well-received ports, such as The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt and The Elder Scrolls 5: Skyrim, indicating a good chance that Gotham Knights will receive similar treatment. This is especially plausible considering the upcoming release of the Batman: Arkham trilogy on the Switch in October. The recent rating on a Korean website further suggests that WB Montreal's spiritual successor may soon make its way to Nintendo's console.

Gotham Knights is available on PC, PS5, and Xbox Series X/S.
