Hearthstone has been a massive success for Blizzard on computers, phones and tablets, and given that the Nintendo Switch has a large touchscreen display, one would assume that it would make the ideal platform for the title's console debut.
The bad news is that Blizzard doesn't seem to be working on a Switch port at the moment, but the good news is that the title's senior designer Mike Donais likes the sound of the concept:
I personally haven't talked about it but I'm more focused on card design. Hearthstone is available on iPads and phones, so it's a good discussion worth having.
Hearthstone is exactly the kind of experience that would be perfectly at home on Nintendo's handheld; no changes would need to be made in terms of interface, at least when it comes to playing in portable mode. When docked, the Joy-Con could potentially be used as a pointing device to make selections. Both Donais and fellow designer Matt Place note that any potential PS4 to Xbox One release would have been drastically re-thought in terms of interface, and in that regard the Switch has a big advantage over those consoles.
