It looks like Respawn let slip that Apex Legends is coming to Switch next month.
Last night, Respawn dropped the first story trailer for Apex Legends‘ upcoming Season 8. Among other things, the trailer unveiled Apex Legends’ latest character: Fuse, the Aussie explosives expert.
The video also confirmed February 2 as the starting date of Season 8.
But that wasn’t all it revealed, at least if you happened to check the trailer’s official Japanese version. The trailer’s description, as spotted by @TitanfallBlog, added one more piece of news: the Switch version’s release date. According to the – since deleted – description, Apex Legends is coming to Switch on the same day as the Season 8 launch, February 2.
“And on February 2nd, it will be possible to play on Switch at the same time as the start of Season 8,” a translated portion of the description once read.
Given that it was quickly removed, the information may simply be out of date, which would explain why the English version did not include this detail. It’s also possible Respawn wanted to properly announce the release date on its own terms at some point in the next few days.
We’ve never actually seen Apex Legends running on Switch since it was announced. It was initially supposed to be out last year, but got pushed back to 2021 in October.
