"Warframe" Is Being Launched On The Nintendo Switch

Susumu Tanaka, senior executive officer at Nintendo, has an exact number in mind: "We started working with indie developers during the Wii U generation". According to the Steam charts, Warframe is one of the top five free-to-play titles at the moment. Alongside the Switch release, Digital Extremes unveiled a new "Fortuna" expansion that includes new city and a new faction to Waframe's world.

Warframe now has more than 38 million registered players worldwide, and if you're not familiar with the title, here's a bit more detail.

There aren't many details surrounding Warframe just yet, not even a release window for the game.

Warframe is a third person sci-fi shooter, where the warframes are alien armour that now come in 35 different varieties.

Warframe is a fast-paced cooperative shooter, now available for PlayStation 4, PC, and Xbox One. Panic Button, the studio responsible for porting games to Switch like Doom and Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus, has partnered with Digital Extremes to bring the hit cooperative, sci-fi action game over to the Switch. Warframe is also known for it flexible mod system, the ability to join clans, and massive open worlds.

Their version of Warframe was announced at TennoCon, the game's third annual convention, and follows other free-to-play titles such as Paladins and Fortnite onto Switch. Reviewer Chris Watters wrote: "Some problematic menus pale in comparison to Warframe's real problem: a pervasive tendency toward repetition".
