we already known this Apex Legends, Respawn Entertainment’s Battle Royale shooter, was coming to Nintendo Switch. But when? Various leaks had suggested the port would be released on February 2, but this was found to be incorrect. Today, the renowned developer behind Fall of the Titans and Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order announced that the port will be launched on March 9. It will support cross-platform play, which means Switch owners can team up and compete with players using PlayStation, Xbox, and PC hardware. Respawn has also promised “full feature parity”. So other than the visuals and frame rate, you shouldn’t notice any major differences or omissions.
Respawn enlisted Panic Button to help with the project. The little-known developer from Austin, Texas delivered a multitude of surprisingly playable Switch ports, including Rocket league, Condemn (2016), Warframe, Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus, Wolfenstein: Youngblood and Eternal doom. He also created an optimized version for the Xbox series of Forza Horizon 4. “Portage Apex Legends at its smaller screen is still a major achievement, and we couldn’t have done it without our friends at Panic Button ”, Chad Grenier, Game Director on Apex Legends said. “We are very proud of what the team was able to achieve with some smart optimizations for the Switch port to provide a Apex Legends traveling experience. “
