Update: We've added more official details to the original story below now the game has dropped.
As hinted at earlier this month following a Switch eShop blunder on Nintendo's side, it seems Five Nights at Freddy’s: Help Wanted is coming to Switch... today!
Yes, the non-VR version of Steel Wool Studios' game is available to download right now on the Nintendo eShop, and the Switch version comes with some exclusive features; namely, HD rumble to make things just a little more tense in this horror mini-game collection. Check out the launch trailer above.
The game originally launched in December last year for PS4 and PC and features a selection of classic and original mini-games from the horror series divided up by their game of origin and difficulty. Here are some key features as highlighted in the official blurb:

The game is out at this very moment with a price tag of $29.99 / £24.99 / 29,99€ depending on where you're downloading. We'll be reviewing the game, so keep an eye out for our verdict. In the meantime, let us know below if you plan on spending another night at Freddy's on Switch.
It's good that there porting it to things with no VR but what about labo.
perhaps a side mode of sorts would be cool
Yes, more of these please. Good for those who don't care for VR.
Well my oldest son is obsessed with FNAF so this will definitely be purchased soon.
@Panba Coincidentally, a couple of us talked about reasons PSVR ports aren't getting labo support. I noted Trover Saves the Universe (a PSVR port) did not get Labo VR support. I think @RR529 made the best points for why PSVR games aren't getting Labo VR support. I haven't seen any outlet talk about it, but RR529 could be right:
"The Switch's gyro doesn't allow the same range of movement that more high end VR units have (affecting gameplay), plus the Switch has a lower screen resolution than PSVR (the lower the resolution, the more likely motion sickness will occur, and even PSVR is considered bare minimum in this regard), which makes conversions to LABO harder to achieve than you may think. Plus, there's always the chance that they may have to lower the framerate too (which can really induce motion sickness), and no official means to keep it strapped to your head (which may put off developers).
I love my Switch & like digging out my LABO VR from time to time, but it's much more limited for VR purposes than I think most realize."
If anyone else knows the issue or can frame it better, you're welcome to chime in. This is just the best explanation I've seen.
9AM PST thats when it comes out for those who are still wondering exactly when it comes out on the eshop
@CaptainRPG I checked the Nintendo eShop and it still not on there
