The person who handles the iOS port checked with Nintendo about getting access to the Switch, but Nintendo rejected that request. I don't know of any effort to port Wesnoth to the X Box or Playstation.

What were Nintendo's reasons for rejecting the game for Switch? Is there any way we can get them to reconsider?

There were no reasons given, it was just a generic "thanks for your interest, but ..." type of reply.

I guess they like total control over an ecosystem, similar to the apple store and other
stores. It's a quite unfortunate trend in general.

I wish I remembered who Nintendo's current "Nindies" coordinator was so I could bug them on Twitter; turnover at positions there means it isn't always the same person as I remember from previously...
