How well does it play on the switch compared to on your phone? Does it support the pro controller?

Does support the pro controller, you'll have a bit of a learning curve to figure out the controls. If you play in handheld mode you can utilize some of the touchscreen capabilities. I've transitioned from playing on my phone because the size of the switch screen is greater and playing on my flat screen is a great experience.

Can multiple people play on one switch with local multiplayer or do you need to have multiple systems with the game for multiplayer.

Do you have to pay for switch online service to play online? Fortnite you don't have to pay for the online service.

Looks like you do have to pay the online subscription:

Game plays fine. I just ended up going back to the phone because it was much easier to type there. If you are playing with friends over discord or facetime or something, it wouldn't matter

It works really well ơn Switch. Both my kids have it on theirs. It also works with Pro controller. Personally I found it much better to control the game with physical controllers than touch screen on the phone.

Is there voice chat on the Switch itself, or do you have to use the Nintendo app?

Bought this game for my nephew along with the Nintendo Family Subscription that came with the free 128gb memory card. I get a memory card and he gets to play online, win-win.

I'm somewhat paranoid when it comes to allowing my kids to play online games. But they've been specifically asking for this game. I'd appreciate any input about the appropriateness of social interactions for my preteen kids. Thanks!
