Warframe is coming to Nintendo Switch

The Switch is about to pull in another well-known shooter.

Warframe is a fast-paced cooperative shooter, now available for PlayStation 4, PC, and Xbox One.

And to say that Putin is a friendlier, easier meeting than with our oldest allies in the world is simply jaw-dropping". Separately, doubts about Trump's commitment to European security have pushed EU leaders to boost defense cooperation.


Announced during TennoCon, the company's annual Warframe convention, the port is expected to bring full access to the game complete with its 35 Warframe exoskeletons, hundreds of weapons, and thousands of customisation options - which are available both through gameplay and through microtransactions. Warframe is also known for it flexible mod system, the ability to join clans, and massive open worlds. IGN scored Panic Button's recent port of Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus an 8.5, calling it "A respectable port of one of the greatest shooters of this generation", and stated that Doom for Switch is "a technical achievement for portable console gaming and an outstanding game in its own right". Fortunately, Panic Button seems like just the team to get the job done properly.

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. In response, Senior Executive Officer Susumu Tanaka indicated that Nintendo is planning to ramp up their indie support even further going forward.

The tariff list could be released as soon as Tuesday, and likely this week, the report said. Trade Representative Robert Lighthizer said in an emailed statement.


Taking everything into consideration, it will be interesting to see how much more sizable Warframe's audience will become when the title's on Nintendo Switch, for not only is the barrier of entry non-existent, but also it could fill the void for many who had hoped for Destiny 2 to come to the platform.
