Well, it’s Groundhogs Day… again and no sign of Apex Legends on Nintendo Switch. Which was the rumoured date for the highly anticipated battle royale from Respawn.
Respawn and Nintendo confirmed that Apex Legends would grace the Nintendo Switch on March 9, 2021, and when it does, players can join in on the Season 8: Mayhem shenanigans. Those who download the game can earn double XP from March 9 – 23 and receive the first 30 levels and all associated rewards immediately with the purchase of the Season 8 Battle Pass.
Get ready to show ‘em what you’re made of when Apex Legends arrives on March 9!

Porting Apex Legends to its smallest screen yet is a major achievement, and we couldn’t have done it without our friends at Panic Button,” says Chad Grenier, Game Director on Apex Legends. “We’re very proud of what the team has been able to achieve with some smart optimizations for the Switch port to deliver a full-featured Apex Legends experience on the go.”
