Free-To-Play Shooter Warframe Announced For Switch: Panic Button Porting - News

Digital Extremes Partners with Panic Button to Bring Warframe to Switch - Warframe

Just last month, Nintendo of America president Reggie Fils-Aimé revealed that the console library already had a staggering 700 games available (in just 16 months of the system being on sale) and it seems that Nintendo has absolutely no intention of slowing down.

Panic Button's involvement indicates that Warframe players can expect a quality port from the Switch version, and one that's as close as possible to the original. It's known for being very hard, with many complex menus and systems to coordinate.

First announced back in 2012, Warframe - from the company responsible for the multiplayer element of BioShock 2 and the entirety of comic-book-inspired shooter The Darkness II - sees the player plunged into the role of a Tenno fighting back using ancient battle exoskeletons dubbed Warframes against their slave masters the Grineer.

So while the gold rush days of limited competition might soon be coming to an end for indie developers on the Switch, we're still a long way away from the tsunami of content that some worry is contributing to a race to the bottom effect on some other platforms. The missions are intense and challenging, but equally rewarding.

No release date information was shared, unfortunately.

After the success of Warframe on the Xbox One and PlayStation platforms, game developer Digital Extremes is ready to port the game over to the Nintendo Switch as well.

"During development on Nintendo Switch, creating a development environment where it would be easy to create games was one of our top priorities", Nintendo Managing Executive officer Shinya Takahashi said in the recent investor's Q&A.
