Smite

A few days ago, it was announced that Smite is teaming up with Avatar: The Last Airbender and The Legend of Korra. The two television shows will be featured as part of an upcoming Battle Pass in July.

The crossover features special skins for Aang, Zuko, and Korra skins. The three characters are for Merlin, Susano, and Skadi respectively.

During a live stream this week, all three characters were shown off for the first time. We have the full recording below.

The free-to-play MOBA game Smite has just announced a new crossover with Avatar: The Last Airbender and The Legend of Korra, Nickelodeon’s previous television shows.

Aang/Avatar Aang (Merlin), Zuko/Blue Spirit (Susano), and Korra/Avatar Korra (Skadi) will be featured as part of the game’s next Battle Pass. A release is planned for July.

Here’s a trailer for the Avatar Battle Pass:

Nintendo has posted another launch trailer for Smite featuring the Founder’s Pack. Check out the video below.

Smite is hitting Switch one week from today. We have a new trailer promoting the release, which you can find below.

Hi-Rez Studios has announced two major updates planned for a couple of its current titles. Paladins and Smite are both getting cross-play and cross-progression.

Cross-play enables players across different platforms to connect together. And with cross-progression, accounts across different systems can be connected.

Although Nintendo’s European digital download report indicated that Smite would be released on Switch today, it’ll unfortunately be a bit longer before it goes playable. Hi-Rez Studios has officially announced plans to support Nintendo’s console and has shared extra details in the process.

If you head on over to the eShop, you’ll see that the Smite Founder’s Pack is now available for pre-purchase. Players will receive the following:

Update: Despite Nintendo listing Smite as a 2018 release and in its “new releases” section of the week, Smite will not be available to play until January. The pre-purchase option is live, however. See this post for more details.


Original: Following rumors and leaks from datamining, the MOBA Smite has been officially confirmed for Switch. Nintendo’s European digital download report for the week lists it as a new release for November 16 – tomorrow, in other words.

At least initially, Smite will be sold as a bundle on Switch. Nintendo lists it as having “200 Gems, 400 Gems + Smite Founder’s Pack”. Pricing is set at €26.31 / £23.69.

With the latest round of datamining, Smite is all but confirmed for Switch. Fans have detected a Founder’s Pack specifically for Nintendo’s console, which includes Thor, Ymir, Zeus, Scylla, and Neith.

Smite has been rumored for a Switch release for several months now thanks to previous datamines. Paladins, another game from Hi-Rez Studios, was also leaked for the platform in a similar manner. The company would later release a Paladins Founder’s Pack on Switch before making a free-to-play version available later on.

Smite fans have been poking through the game’s 5.18 patch and have found something rather interesting. A reference to Switch now exists in the latest engine config file under the Oasis tag. Strings are included for the eShop in which players would be able to purchase gems.

If everything here sounds familiar, that’s because something similar happened with Paladins before it was officially announced for Switch. Hi-Rez Studios is likely preparing its MOBA for Nintendo’s console, though it’s unclear when an official announcement will be made.
