While the exact question is unknown, the response from miHoYo's PR specialist is clear: the game is still coming to the Switch.

While the game is playable on mobile devices, having it on the Nintendo Switch would allow gamers to have both a powerful console version and a portable version on the same device. This would make traveling and continuing the journey much easier, though it does raise the issue of online connectivity. Still, many have been quite excited by the new information.
