Prepare to drop... everything, and pick up your Switch and enjoy one of the best battle royale games on the market, coming to Nintendo Switch on March 9, 2021.

EA and Respawn have finally revealed an official release date for Apex Legends on Nintendo Switch, which is booked for March 9, 2021. 

The guys who ported Doom Eternal on the Nintendo's console - Panic Button, were included in the porting of Apex Legends, so we can all rest assured that the Switch will get a solid port of Respawn's battle royale game.

"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."

Chad Grenier , the game director on Apex Legends, added that the Switch version will offer full parity with the other version of the game and that it will launch with cross-play support and all the latest seasonal content.

Switch players will also get a Season 8 Battle Pass boost when they start playing, all the way to level 30, for free, to catch up with gamers on other platforms.
