The popularity of free-to-play sci-fi epic Warframe is undeniable, so much so that an annual convention takes place in developer and publisher Digital Extremes' home of Canada. Dubbed TennoCon, the third-annual event took place this past weekend and was full of exciting new Warframe announcements. Including, the little tid bit that it was on its way to Nintendo Switch.
With more than 38 million registered players worldwide, the cooperative, free-to-play hit Warframe is a third-person online action game set in an evolving sci-fi world soon to be available on Nintendo Switch. Warframe gives players the chance to master the Warframe armor as the enigmatic Tenno, a race of ancient warriors wielding blade and gun, who are awakened from centuries of cryo-sleep by the mysterious guide, Lotus, to restore order throughout the Solar System. Warframe features more than 35 unique Warframes, hundreds of weapons and thousands of customization options, the ability to upgrade weapons armor and items using a flexible mod system, and the ability to join clans, nurture pets, and explore massive new open worlds.
With port duties being handled by Panic Button, the same studio that brought both DOOM and Wolfenstein to the Nintendo Switch - there's no reason expect anything but great things from Warframe's transition into a handheld play-anywhere experience. No release date has been set, but we'll keeping our eye on this for sure. For more on Warframe, why not check out our recent feature Warframe - Tenno Reasons You Should Be Playing.
