Warframe Out Now On Nintendo Switch -- An Impressive Port That Surprised Us

Warframe is officially now available on the Nintendo Switch Eshop. It's a free download, but you'll need to ensure you've got a fair amount of storage available, as it requires 12.4 GB. We recently got to go hands-on with the port, and you can read on for our full impressions of what it's like to play on Switch.

Warframe has grown from a modest free-to-play experiment that was very much a work in progress to a remarkably impressive online game with an ever-growing fan-base. Since its launch in 2013, the action-RPG starring "Space Ninjas" slashing and shooting across the universe has evolved in a big way after its many expansions, giving players more ways to customize their characters and partner up in different scenarios--including open world settings--to take on the toughest challenges in the game. Out now on PC, PS4, and Xbox One, developer Digital Extremes and along with Switch port veterans Panic Button Games, have now set their sights on their most ambitious project to date--a port of the massive game for Nintendo Switch.


Digital Extremes are one of my favourite devs this generation. Knowing where they came from, it's nice to see them succeeding to this degree. (Why they weren't even nominated for best ongoing game baffles my damn mind!)
