When it comes to live service games, the Nintendo Switch can often get the wrong end of the stick. With switch owners usually having to wait that extra bit longer before they can play some of the best and brightest titles within the medium of gaming. This much has been true for battle royale title Apex Legends which has been absent from the Switch line up since launch. However, recently Respawn let it slip that season eight will mark the launch of Apex on the Nintendo Switch.
This news comes via a trailer released by Respawn building hype for the upcoming season. The press release would inform players of a brand new character joining the roster. The Australian explosives nut ‘Fuse’. Plus, the video also let us all know that the launch of Season Eight would occur on the 2nd February 2021.

On the Japanese version of the trailer for Season Eight, the trailer had a text description which read ‘Apex Legends is coming to Switch on the same day as the Season 8 launch, February 2.’
