There is no timeframe for the move to Switch, but it's big news nonetheless! Having lots of games is fantastic, of course, but we'd rather have five gems to choose from per week than 30 mediocre games that fill a quota. It seems now we finally have our answer as to what the mystery game is. After all, many Warframe players would attest that the Digital Extremes title is everything fans of Bungie's science fiction shooter series would want and then some, and its availability on Switch might sway some into the way of the Tenno.

The game is now available on PC, PS4 and Xbox One and features hundreds of of weapons and over 35 Warframes, and thousands of customisation options.

"This is an opportunity to learn some lessons from Wii U and 3DS", Nintendo indies head partner Damon Baker told Ars a year ago.

A spokesperson for 2K Games issued the below statement confirming that there are no plans to release the game on The Switch platform. "Super Meat Boy on Switch first-day sales came shockingly close to its debut on Xbox 360 back in 2010", the Super Meat Boy team tweeted earlier this year. Some of the indie games already released have gone on to become million sellers worldwide. And the relative lack of discoverability or recommendation tools on the Switch's online storefront may not help matters, either. If you weren't at TennoCon to see it yourself, you can at least watch this official Warframe on Switch trailer.

"Our goal is cross-platform play", explains Warframe Creative Director Steve Sinclair.
