To-play favourite Warframe coming to Nintendo Switch

Players take on the role of a Tenno, a race of ancient warriors, and have a chance to master the Warframe armor.

Warframe is a free-to-play, third-person, co-op shooter set in an ever-evolving universe. Developer Digital Extremes announced at TennoCon 2018 that it's working with prolific Switch port studio Panic Button (who you may remember from the surprisingly full-fat Nintendo Switch Wolfenstein 2 and Doom ports) to bring the long-running space ninja game to Nintendo's home and handheld console.

There's also hundreds of different weapons and thousands of customisation options, that allow you to mod the equipment however you want. Those anxious about Warframe's transition to Switch should rest easy, as many have praised Panic Button's work with both Wolfenstein 2 and DOOM on the system. Since it was released for the PC five years ago, Warframe has steadily grown in popularity.

As a reminder, Panic Button has been responsible for a number of Nintendo Switch ports. Although no release date has been confirmed just yet, you can check out the trailer above to see Warframe running in action on Nintendo Switch. Panic Button has helped develop other titles for the Nintendo Switch, including Bethesda's Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus, Doom, and Psyonix's Rocket League. The game is now without a release date or even window, but when we know, you will know.
