Remember the post PUBG battle Royale hype and how every developer tried to jump on the bandwagon? Well, there have been a number of BR games inspired by PUBG’s instant popularity, some of which have been downright pathetic, others not so much. You probably remember Realm Royale from 2018 when it was initially released as a pre-alpha game on Steam. Realm Royale has since done very well for its self and is actually a fun game to play. Now, after PS4 and Xbox One, Realm Royale For Nintendo Switch has also been released. Moreover, like the other platforms, its still a F2P game.
Realm Royale was essentially a spin-off of the hero shooter Paladins, where it originated as a game mode known as Paladins: Battlegrounds. As for the gameplay, it pretty much plays like any other BR game in that 100 players drop down from an airship and must traverse a shrinking safe area, collect equipment such as weapons to fight and eliminate opponents, and aim to be the last remaining player.

The official description off of the Nintendo page reads as follows:
Can you defeat up to 99 players to claim the Crown Royale in this hit fantasy Battle Royale?
Choose a class. Forge your legend.
Choose a class, then loot deadly weapons and powerful abilities to customize your playstyle and dominate the battlefield. Soar through the skies as a Mage, or perfect your accuracy as the Hunter. Flank the enemy with the stealthy Ghost Walk as an Assassin, or jump head-on into battle as the Warrior with the Heroic Leap!
The Ultimate Team Royale
Call your friends: It’s time to squad up. Help your team by dropping a Healing Totem during a firefight, or fire a Flare into the sky to reveal incoming enemies. Build a team from four unique classes and work together to earn the coveted Crown Royale!
Wield Awesome Abilities
Throw out a Concussion Bomb to knock enemies into your line of fire, or summon an Ice Wall to take cover. Make a stealthy approach with a Smoke Screen, or search for nearby enemies with a Sensor Drone. Find your favorite abilities scattered across the Realm, and outplay your opponents.
Forge Legendary Weapons
Go traditional with shotguns and snipers, or embrace the fantasy with swords and crossbows. If you want to win, you’ll need to craft Legendary Weapons at Forges scattered across the Realm. But be careful: Using the Forge will alert enemies of your presence!
Mount Up. Explore the Realm.
Journey through snow-swept vistas, castle keeps, and fungal jungles. The best part: you can summon your mount at any time to outrun the fog and ride to your next battle!
Live to Fight Another Day
Losing a fight doesn’t mean it’s all over. Fall to zero health and you’ll be turned into a chicken! Survive long enough as a chicken and you’ll returned to human form, giving you an opportunity to turn the tables on your opponents!
