Today was very good news for Apex Legends players, as Electronic Arts and Respawn Entertainment announced that Season 8 will begin very soon and as on previous occasions there will be many news. Well, apparently there will be even better news for Nintendo Switch players, as the title could debut along with the new season.
In the new Wildlands Stories short, Respawn Entertainment let fans take a look at Fuse, the new legend who will debut in Apex Legends in Season 8: Mayhem.
The interesting thing is that Electronic Arts would have also anticipated that the version of Apex Legends for Nintendo Switch would arrive together with this season, on February 2. We say this because, as reported by users and TitanfallBlog, the description of said YouTube video refers to the Nintendo Switch version.
“And on February 2 it will be possible to play on Switch at the same time as the start of Season 8”, reads the description of the versions of the video that according to Video Games Chronicle indicated that it appeared in countries such as Poland, Denmark and Japan.
APEX LEGENDS DEBUT ON NINTENDO SWITCH COULD BE IMMINENT
According to the information, in other descriptions the reference to Nintendo Switch does not appear and in those that did appear a short time later it was eliminated. This could mean that Electronic Arts went ahead to make the official reveal or it was simply a mistake that they had to correct later.
So far, Electronic Arts has not spoken about this, so we invite you to take the possible arrival date as unofficial information. The only thing that is known is that the title for Nintendo Switch would have cross-play and content parity with the other versions and that it would debut on this console originally in the fall of 2020, but it had to be delayed until 2021 for the development team have more time to work on it and “do the game justice and make it the great experience that Switch players deserve,” according to the company when it announced the delay. We will keep you informed.
