Apex Legends could be just a couple of weeks away from launching on Switch. In the game’s latest Japanese trailer, the YouTube description mentioned that the Switch release is planned for February 2. However, it has since been removed, and there was no mention of the news in other languages.

It’s possible that the date is spot on, though there’s also a chance that it was incorrect. Thankfully, February 2 isn’t too far away, so we should know for sure either way soon enough.

Apex Legends was originally planned to arrive on Switch last fall. It was later delayed to 2021.

Last June, EA said it would be bringing seven games to Switch over the next year. A few of these titles have already been released – Burnout Paradise Remastered, Need for Speed: Hot Pursuit Remastered, and FIFA 21 Legacy Edition. Apex Legends and Lost in Random are also coming soon. 

That leaves us with two more games. One of the mystery projects should be the upcoming title from Mario Kart Live developer Velan Studios. VentureBeat claimed several months ago that Plants vs. Zombies: Battle for Neighborville is also happening on Switch, and it now seems we’re getting close to an announcement.

EA has issued a new 1.0.2 update for the Switch version of Need For Speed: Hot Pursuit Remastered. It contains lots of adjustments, improvements, and fixes pertaining to audio, lobbies, stability, and more.

Here are the full patch notes:

Rather than a simple port, the team has reworked the game. There will be a new script, new voices, new Photo Mode, and gyroscopic support.
