Respawn Entertainment has just announced Apex Legends for the Nintendo Switch, launching next month on March 9, 2021. The game is finally arriving on the portable console after years of speculations and rumors, 2 years after the launch of the game on consoles and PCs.
It will be very interesting to see how the game will run on the small screen the Nintendo Switch has to offer, and how optimized it will be to run on the console. In a statement announcing the game for the Switch, Respawn has admitted that the port is nothing short of a major achievement.
Hey everyone, this is Chad Grenier, Game Director on Apex Legends.
Today, I’m proud to come to you with some good news. Apex Legends is coming to Nintendo Switch on March 9th, 2021.
Porting Apex Legends to its smallest screen yet is a major achievement, and we couldn’t have done it without our friends at Panic Button. We’re very proud of what the team has been able to achieve with some smart optimizations for the Switch port to deliver a full-featured Apex Legends experience on the go.
Apex Legends will launch on Switch with support for cross-platform play, our latest seasonal content, and full feature parity with the other versions of the game.
Plus, since we’re launching a few weeks after the start of Season 8, Switch players will be granted 30 free levels for their Season 8 Battle Pass. For the first two weeks after launch, playing on Switch will also earn you double XP.
We can’t wait to welcome Switch players to the arena. Keep an eye out for more news about the latest updates we’re bringing to Apex Legends.
As the hype builds up for the launch of the game next month, we will surely be getting reveal trailers and gameplay trailers as we near March. Another great news in the announcement is that the game will be available with support for cross-platform play, with full feature parity with the other versions of the game.
