Nintendo Switch Port

Respawn have officially announced the release date for Apex Legends on Nintendo Switch!

It will launch on Tuesday, March 9th.

While most competitive players are used to playing on anything from 60-360fps, the Nintendo Switch version of Apex Legends will likely see the game reduced down to just 30fps.

The Nintendo Switch is a fairly weak console, even by last gen's standards.

Other competitive games, such as Fortnite and Warface, only run at 30fps on the Nintendo Switch, meaning that Apex Legends will likely get the same treatment.

With so many fast paced and competitive games now on the Nintendo Switch, it does show that we need the rumoured Switch Pro more than ever, especially with the hardware gap growing even larger with the additions of the recently released PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X|S.
