Hotta Sudio's Tower of Fantasy has exploded onto PC and mobile but will it come to Sony's PlayStation 4 or 5?
Hotta Studio's Tower of Fantasy is the latest big-budget Chinese-developed MMORPG to hit these shores, and it already looks like a hit, as well as more than a little like HoYoverse's Genshin Impact.
However, this anime-styled game ditches the traditional fantasy elements (ironic, I know) of Genshin Impact and instead goes sci-fi, with players able to explore the vast open world of Aida as one of the game's huge roster of characters.
Over four million gamers pre-registered their interest in the game before its global launch on August 11, giving you an indication of just how popular the game could be.
Of course, that is still a long way from Genshin Impact, with the rival title counting over 60 million active players as of June 2022. To catch up, or even surpass, Genshin Impact will mean a huge undertaking, and it looks like Hotta Studio's are at least boxing smart in an attempt to do so.
We have already seen how controller support was extended to Android players (something Genshin Impact has never offered), but when it comes to platform surport Tower of Fantasy lags way behind.
Currently, Tower of Fantasy is only available on PC via Steam and the Epic Games Store and on mobile devices with versions for Android and iOS. Obviously missing here are any console versions at all, with the Nintendo Switch, PlayStation, and Xbox consoles all without ports.
On the other hand, Genshin Impact has seen ports for the PlayStation 4, and later the PlayStation 5, and a release for the Nintendo Switch has been in the works since at least October 2020, but since then, there has been little said by the developers about the port to the handheld.
Still, the Tower of Fantasy developers has a bit of catching up to do. So, if you are curious to know the latest on a console release of Tower of Fantasy, and specifically, a version for the PlayStation 4 and 5, then keep on reading.
Will Tower Of Fantasy Get A Nintendo Switch Release?
Currently, there are no plans for any console release for Tower of Fantasy. This was confirmed by the Tower of Fantasy developers in a Twitter thread on April 20, 2022.

"There is currently no plan to release the game on console in the near future as we’re currently focused on PC & mobile only for this global version," explained the developers. "We appreciate your support and will post an update if this changes."
So, not exactly a definitive no but certainly no release date planned in the immediate future.
If the developers make any other proclamations or promises, we will be sure to update this page with all the latest information on a potential Tower of Fantasy PlayStation 4/5 port.
