Canadian developer and publisher Digital Extremes has revealed that Warframe is in development for Nintendo Switch thanks to a partnership with Panic Button. The news comes from this year's TennoCon - the third annual convention for the game.

Warframe is a third-person, free-to-play online action game set in an evolving sci-fi world, giving players the chance to master the Warframe armour as the enigmatic Tenno, a race of ancient warriors who are awakened from centuries of cryo-sleep by the mysterious guide, Lotus. The game features more than 35 unique Warframes, hundreds of weapons, and thousands of customisation options, as well as upgrades, a flexible mod system, and the ability to join clans, nurture pets, and explore massive new open worlds.

The game was originally released on PC back in 2013, arriving on PS4 and Xbox One shortly after, and has seen regular updates and tweaks since then to keep things fresh. Being the ambitious title that it is, it comes as little surprise that Digital Extremes wanted to get Panic Button on board with the Switch version - Panic Button's recent ports of DOOM, Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus and Rocket League have all impressed so we're feeling hopeful for another success story here.

Of course, Panic Button recently teased that a major Switch port would be announced this month, and it seems like we now have our answer as to what that game is. No release window has been confirmed for the title just yet, but here are a few screenshots of the game to tide you over.
