Third-person shooter Warframe pits players in the role of ancient warriors Tenno against a race of clones named the Grineer, powered by robotics and laser tech. There are more than 35 Warframe armor suits currently, loads of weapons available with wide array of customizing options. A huge open world is up for you to explore as you upgrade your armor or weapons and even join clans. Until the port finally arrives on the platform, we cannot tell how much of that are coming along.

After having successfully ported Doom and Rocket League for Switch, Panic Button studio is back to take this task to bring the experience at your grasp. Their director of development, Adam Creighton already stated last month that they are working on a major port. Considering their reputation and experience of bringing AAA titles from other platforms to Switch, we can bet that they are going to nail this one as well. Plus, they are familiar with Switch hardware from a very early period.

Warframe was launched back in 2013 for PC and PlayStation 4, then a year later in 2014, it debuted on Xbox One. Last time we checked, the game has a whooping 38 million players registered worldwide and that is not a small achievement. Debuting on Switch will definitely increase that number higher for sure and open up doorway to many other possibilities for the community. Although the trailer mention of the port is coming very soon, there is no specific release date revealed just yet.
