Probably.

The risky methods
If you’ve been searching for “can you play Roblox on a Nintendo Switch” online, then you may already know where this is going. The first risky method is jailbreaking your Nintendo Switch. This will void your warranty and could brick your system if you screw something up so it’s not recommended to use this method when there are others available.
The other somewhat risky method is to install Android on your Nintendo Switch. The reason this is risky is because Android for Switch is still being developed and is full of bugs and errors. This could lead to unexpected problems that you may not be able to fix.
The safe methods
While these methods are safer than the others, they do require you to follow several steps to implement. Here is a quick overview of these methods.
Basically, by screwing around with your Nintendo Switch’s DNS settings, you can get it to access your Roblox account on Roblox.com. There is virtually no risk here, but if something does go wrong, you can just reset your DNS settings to default.
Screen sharing app
This is basically a method for booting up Roblox on your mobile device, then using a screen-sharing app to put it on your Switch. It’s pretty straightforward but does require both a mobile device with Android and the screen-sharing app itself.
Which method is best?
Now that you know the answer to the question “Can you play Roblox on a Nintendo Switch?” the next logical question is, should you? To be completely honest here, it’s probably best to just play Roblox on a device that already has Android like a desktop or mobile device.
If you’re really desperate to play Roblox on your Switch, then there’s nothing stopping you from doing so as long as you understand the potential ramifications. If that’s the case, good luck, and try not to mess up your machine in the process. Bricking your Switch because you wanted to play Roblox on it would be kind of embarrassing.
