I've been making my own games in many different languages (mainly Scratch, Python 3 with Pygame, and JavaScript), but, so far, none of them have been ported to the Nintendo Switch. How can I do this?

Searching for Scratch on Switch turns up this this list of officially rejected suggestions:

2.7 Scratch for video game consoles

The Scratch Team does not have the resources to put a Scratch editor onto a video game console. This includes making a Scratch editor for Nintendo Switch, 3DS, Xbox, and Playstation consoles.

Searching JavaScript on Switch turns up this way to access the web browser on the Switch and point it to an existing web page with JavaScript on it. It might not support all JavaScript features your games use, mind.

Searching for PyGame on Switch turns up this guide to developing homebrew in Python using nx-python.

When starting a new project, be sure to do these kinds of searches for yourself to get your initial leads, then ask here if you need help with a specific step along the way.
