A while back, we heard from EA and Respawn Entertainment that the release window for Apex Legends for Switch had been pushed back from 2020 to 2021.
Since then, there have been little updates from the publisher and developer about its new release date. However, on the latest Japanese trailer for the game uploaded to Youtube, fans noticed a short blurb seemingly revealing that the Switch port for the title would be launching on February 2nd 2021.
Although the line has since been removed from the video, @TitanfallBlong on Twitter posted a screencap and translation of it which you can find below:
BREAKING: The Japanese version on YouTube states Apex Legends is coming to Switch on February 2.

At the time of this writing, it is not clear whether this line was an error or an accidental early reveal. As with all rumors of this nature, we caution readers to take it with a grain of salt until an official announcement is made.
We will be sure to report back with more details as they come.
