Update: It appears that the SMITE Founder’s Pack bundle is available for pre-order starting today. Pre-ordering the bundle guarantees access to the game’s closed beta, when it launches on January 24th, 2019.
The original source came from Nintendo’s European Digital Report, which confirmed that the game was coming to the Nintendo Switch.
Original: Hi-Rez Studios’ SMITE is coming to the Nintendo Switch, tomorrow, November 16th, 2018.
Rumors of the game’s Nintendo Switch release were circulating after a datamine revealed internal game files on Nintendo’s official servers.
Unlike other platforms, which eventually saw a free-to-play release, the Nintendo Switch version of SMITE costs $29.99 USD for the Founder’s Pack bundle. The bundle comes with 600 gems and the game’s Founder’s Pack, which includes a bundle of gods to play with.
Although not announced for SMITE, this is a title that could benefit from the inclusion of the cross-network feature. Already present in Epic Games’ Fortnite, gamers representing any platform can party up together, making it possible for Playstation 4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, PC, and mobile players to be on the same battlefield. Let’s hope Hi-Rez plans to do the same thing!
SMITE is available for Xbox One, Playstation 4 and PC.
