Thank You

Hello, and welcome, Switch RPG fans!

It is with a heavy heart that I must announce the end of SwitchRPG. Although our 1,800+ article database and YouTube channel will remain online, we will not publish any more content on the former (save for some bits already planned) while the latter, at best, will only receive sporadic updates. What began as a Switch RPG database in 2018 quickly became one of the premier destinations for all things related to Switch RPGs, and it has been a blast!

However, all things eventually come to an end. The site has been through its ups and downs over the past three years, but I’d like to believe that one thing has remained consistent throughout: quality coverage of Nintendo Switch RPGs. Our entire team poured thousands of hours into their works over the years, and I wholeheartedly believe that this was crystal clear based on the end result. We’ve always been passionate about what we do, regardless of what storms were weathered along the way.

And for that – all of the work by the staff over the years, countless games played, and many, many hours working on content – I’m truly grateful. But I’m not just thankful for the staff, I’m also so appreciative of our readers, listeners, and watchers. It has blown me away watching this thing explode in popularity over the years, and it simply could not have been done without each and every one of you. After all, what good is content creation without an audience? The time you all have taken to allow us to be heard is something I’m extremely appreciative of, and I cannot say thank you enough.

Please know that this decision was not made lightly. Despite the necessity for this conclusion, it has been extremely difficult to accept. While the entire staff have been essential in pumping out consistent content each and every week, Gio and I have burned that midnight oil for so long that there’s simply not a drop left. And truthfully, when something gets in the way of physical and mental health, it is time to take a step back and reevaluate the situation. It takes a lot of work to run a brand, even a mildly successful one, but the whole process has given an invaluable perspective that I’m certain both Gio and myself will keep close well after the dust settles here.

While SwitchRPG will soon fade from relevancy, I believe its legacy will live on. We’ve built something really special here, and such a foundation will not be shaken so easily. As mentioned earlier, our library of content will remain online, and our active Discord channel will continue to be a thing. I have no doubt that each and every one of our talented staff members will find a new platform to speak their minds from. And who knows, maybe those of us that need this change the most will join the fray again someday? Time will tell…but for now, I do know this: it has been a long, adventurous ride, and it’s something I will never forget.

Thank you.

I made an account once just to thank Nester for his superb writing, and now I’m using it again to let you and the entire SwitchRpg crew know that you’ve given me countless hours of entertainment and happiness. Top tier writing and wonderful personalities, this will remain a site for the ages. I know how much passion everyone poured into this endeavor because it plainly shows. You will all be missed, thanks and I’m sure you’ll go from strength to strength in whatever is next!

I didn’t own a switch until July 2021, but switch rpg has been my go-to site for RPG content, and the first place I’ve gone when evaluating what my next RPG will be. It’s been a great source and as long as it is still up, I’ll be perusing the past 3 years of content for quite awhile longer.

Good luck to all involved, and I hope good things are ahead of you.

Thank *you* for all the dedication and the countless hours you have put into this amazing resource. I found about some of RPGs and series here that I now love (and some that I thought I would, but then avoided) and this is all thanks to you. While I wish SwitchRPG.com would stay active and perhaps turn into something with wider community contributing, I completely understand and respect your decision – personal well-being and health comes first! I wish you all the best in your future endeavors and hope this website will stay up for many years, even if as… Read more »

I just recently found this site.. Of course I just got a Switch in 2020 so had no need for it before then, but it’s been a great source of Switch specific RPG info. Gonna miss it. Any recommendations for any other Switch RPG sites to frequent now?

Despite being a huge fan of RPGs and owning a Switch for 3 years, I literally only just discovered your website a couple hours ago, and wow – I’m just completely blown away by all of it – particularly with the astonishing degree of content. I’ve spent hours pouring over dozens of games I’ve never even heard of, each of them with an incredible review. It’s bittersweet, then, for to realize now that the website is no more. I wish I had known about this earlier – I would have supported you in any way that I could. I might… Read more »
