Great news! Loving that Hi-Rez is supporting the Switch. Probably be having Realm Royale soon too!

Considering the apparent success of Paladins on the system (almost always in the top 5 software since its turn to F2P) then this should hopefully do well for Hi-Rez as well, I have to say I'm always impressed by just how pretty and smooth Paladins looks on the system, they really put a lot of effort into the port. Newest patch is slightly unstable though, new season pass and all that.
