Want to play Roblox on Switch? Your search for a step by step guide on how to play Roblox on your Switch console ends here. While it’s true that an official app for Roblox is not currently available on the eStore and we are also unsure if or when exactly will Roblox release on Switch, our team did some creative search and figured out a way to run Roblox on Nintendo Switch. The Roblox community has tones of games of choose from. Fans made games put up on the Roblox community are accessible across all platforms including Android, iOS, PC and even Xbox One. Here’s what seems to be the easiest way for playing Roblox on Switch:
Get Yourself a Roblox Account on Switch
- If you haven’t signed up for Roblox already, head to the official Roblox website from the web browser that came installed on your Switch.
- Already have a Roblox account? You can use the same Roblox account to sign in on any platform and pick up right where you left off. Roblox is one of the few games supporting cross-platform progress sync and multiplayer.
- While setting up your account, you might want to be extra clever while entering your birthdate. If you are underage, you won’t be able to access all the games on the community. Some of the fan made games have an age restriction and while you are about to game, an error message that reminds you of your age is the last thing you want.
After you successfully sign up for your Roblox account, you can either choose to jump right into the game or do some identity verifications with your email address and phone number. Verifying your identity will help you get back to your account quickly if you happen to lose your login credentials.
The Bottom Line
A dedicated app for Roblox hasn’t been put up on the Nintendo Switch eStore just yet but don’t you think you should be able play the game via the web browser just like you do on your Windows PC? How about you figure this out on your own? Launch your Switch’s web browser and head to Roblox’s official website.
Follow the steps mentioned above. Unfortunately, you won’t be able to play any of the games on the Roblox Community directly from the web browser on your Switch console.

Installing Android to Run Roblox on Switch
What if your Switch ran on Android? Wouldn’t it be a cakewalk to simply download Roblox from the PlayStore? That’s your answer! If you really wish to play Roblox on Switch, you will need to load Android operating system alongside your Switch’s native operating system (like dual boot on PCs). Modders from XDA Developers have successfully loaded Android into a Switch console and while the performance isn’t all that great, you might want to give it a try. Keep in mind that Android on Switch is in a very primitive stage and if you decide to go ahead and just install it, be prepared to run into unexpected errors.
