Renpy games can be played https://github.com/uyjulian/renpy-switch/releases
Sample game there too.
And here other port http://tapochek.net/viewtopic.php?t=220790
If I understand correctly, this requires a homebrew be installed on the switch?

It's a step forward, but still not quite what everyone is after.

More info can be found here
I plan on allowing a dev-signed .nsp file to be built at a later time which can be sent to Nintendo.

I'm still hoping to try it out. It's just a matter of getting my hands on the hardware.
Some friends have the hardware, but aren't willing to install homebrew on their switch.

I eagerly await your progress updates :)

Ratalaika Games are porting my Ren'Py VN (One Night Stand) to Nintendo Switch, PS4 and Xbox One. I've tested the final build and it's just been sent off for certification :) Happy to tell others about the process. It's good to use a porting/ publishing partner as they know what's required, potential issues (licensing on fonts or displaying the controls, for example), deal with age ratings, test, localise etc. They are interested in more Ren'Py ports, too!
