Update: We've got confirmation:

Original Story [Sat 30th Jan, 2021 06:00 GMT]: According to a recent YouTube video and Amazon listing, Respawn Entertainment's battle royale free-to-play game Apex Legends is arriving next month on 2nd February.

While there's no official confirmation from EA just yet, the game's director Chad Grenier has now responded to a question on Twitter - asking when the Switch version of the game will be released. Apparently, Nintendo fans can expect some news very soon. Here's the full exchange:

Apex Legends was originally scheduled to launch on the Switch last year until Respawn decided to delay the game in October. Grenier said this was to ensure the team did the Switch version "justice".

There's also some news about the Japanese retail release via GoNintendo. Somewhat unsurprisingly, it's filled with "digital-only" content and won't include a game card.

If Apex Legends is arriving next week, at this rate, it might be a surprise drop on the eShop. Will you be checking out this free-to-play title whenever it does land? Comment below.
