"We know everyone’s excited about Fall Guy coming to Nintendo Switch and Xbox, with good reason,” wrote Mediatonic in Season 6’s blog update. “There's been a lot of speculation on social media connecting these new console releases to the Season 6 launch and we want to clarify that that's not the case so no one’s left confused looking for the game on these platforms. Thank you for being patient with us, it's one of our top priorities in active development and we can't wait to share more details with you in 2022."
Fall Guys would be the perfect Switch party game that might even be able to take on Mario Party, but it sounds like Mediatonic is keeping the game under wraps until they get everything right. That'd be couch co-op and Joy-Con integration if you asked me.
There's some speculation that we’re launching on Xbox & Switch in Season 6— Sea of Beans (@FallGuysGame) November 30, 2021
Unfortunately, that's not true 🥺
It’s still one of our main priorities. Adding cross-progression today was the first step towards that!
Excited to share more in 2022!https://t.co/4ZldnGZvt0
For the rest of us (that'd be PC and PlayStation), Fall Guys Season 6 has arrived with five new games, a brand new Fame Path, some great crossover costumes, and several new features for cross-platform progression between PS4 and Steam.
We tackled the new games and costumes in our previous coverage, so let's dive into this cross-progression business. Everything is getting tied to an Epic Games Account since Mediatonic is an Epic Games studio now, which means you'll have to create an Epic account if you haven't already. The plus side is you'll be able to actually use your Epic account name so there's no need to rely on the name generator anymore.
Mediatonic plans to include Epic Lobbies and Friends List support later in the season, so stay tuned for that too.
