Daybreak Game Company and Nintendo have announced that DC Universe Online will come to Nintendo Switch through an interview with CBR but did not mention the release date or whether there would be any cross-platform options at all.

DC Universe Online was originally developed by Sony Online Entertainment (SOE) and released in 2011 for PC and PlayStation 3. Since it was Sony's development, it was logical that no other console would get to see the game anytime soon but the company parted ways with the studio back in 2015 which untied the hands of the newly formed Daybreak Games that was once SOE.

Consequently, DC Universe Online was released on Xbox One and upgraded from PlayStation 3 to PlayStation 4. Still, Microsoft's console didn't see much success since it didn't have cross-play options like PS4 and PC did.

CBR recently revealed that Daybreak will bring DC Universe Online to Nintendo Switch as well, sparking hopes of the dwindling Xbox One community that they may get an influx of new players to run around in costumes with.

There was no store page set up for Nitnendo Switch version at the time of writing, hinting that the port may still be a bit far away but since E3 is just around the corner, it is not impossible that's when we will get a release date and Daybreak will prove our assumption wrong.

For those unacquainted, DC Universe Online is one of the biggest and longest lasting superhero video games ever. City of Heroes and City of Villains ruled the scene back in their day but today they live on only on private servers, leaving only Champions Online and DC Universe Online to compete.

The latter, however, features the star power of the classic voices of our superheroes, such as Kevin Conroy as Batman, Susan Eisenberg as Wonder Woman and the legend himself - Mark Hamill as the Joker.

DCUO offers a pile of customisation, which can sometimes make the game look like a cosplay simulator but unlocking these costume pieces is as much fun as it is putting them together while customising your looks.
