There are no plans for Mass Effect: Andromeda on Nintendo Switch, according to BioWare’s Michael Gamble. Although he was specific about the game not coming to the Switch, he remained reserved. As it usually goes, if the interest for the game on the Switch is high, they will respond to that demand accordingly.

These were bad news for the fans who expected that Andromeda would be coming to the Switch as well. This is all because of the information revealed by Electronic Arts CFO Blake Jorgensen during the UBS Global Technology Conference in San Francisco. He hinted that we’ll see one of the larger EA games ported to the Switch. Many of the Mass Effect fans were ecstatic, as they thought this will be Andromeda. This is mostly due to the fact that its predecessor, Mass Effect, was ported to Wii U.
Unfortunately, it is not Mass Effect: Andromeda that’s being ported to the Switch. At least, not for now. Michael Gamble clearly stated as much in his interview for Stevivor. Michael Gamble is the producer of Mass Effect Andromeda & the Mass Effect trilogy.
Yeah, not right now, no. We’re not planning on it. If the Switch launches and everyone’s just yammering for Mass Effect, who knows.
If you are still wondering which larger EA game will be ported on Nintendo Switch, you might find out on January 12th, 2017. This is when the Nintendo Switch Presentation will be held. The presentation will include the launch date and pricing for Nintendo Switch, as well as a look at the lineup of games currently in development. You can watch it live on the official Nintendo Page. Nintendo Switch is set to release in March 2017, almost two years after the first public news about its existence.
