EA and Respawn Entertainment have recently revealed that Apex Legends will be launch on Nintendo’s hybrid system. Director, Michael Higham spoke with GameSpot and gave us more details about bringing the game over to the Switch.
Higham stated Apex Legends is “looking really good and running very well” on the console. The team is now in the testing phase and has been working hard. Furthermore, we can now confirm that gyro controls are supported.
“It’s a big challenge. We’ve been working on it for awhile. It’s not without its challenges, but I’ll say it’s looking really good and running very well. Obviously it’s a different platform, and we have to make some changes to the game to get it to run there. It’s got motion controls, so we’re supporting that, so that takes some time to support – the gyro aim functionality. It’s a lot of work, but it’s coming along nicely. We’re testing it at this point, making sure that it’s good to go. It’s worth it. We’re huge fans of Nintendo, so I’m personally really excited to just bring a game to Switch and I can take it on the go and play it when I’m with my kids or whatever.”
Higham also reminded us that they have plans for cross-play, and Switch players will get the same content as PS4 and Xbox One. Apex Legends will launch on the Nintendo Switch this Fall.
