DC Universe Online swooping onto Nintendo Switch this summer

IT'S DUH BAT!

Some eight years since its original release, DC Comics' MMO title DC Universe Online is still going strong. Having first launched in 2011 on PC and PlayStation 3, Bats and co. would make the move to PS4 and Xbox One in recent years, and are now preparing to arrive on Nintendo Switch.

DC Universe Online allows budding superheroes to create their own defender of the people (or, alternately, a newly-feared addition to DC's gallery of rouges) before exploring a huge online world alongside an A-list cast of characters including Wonder Woman, The Flash, The Joker, Superman, Lex Luthor and many other recognisable stars.

Developer Daybreak Games has confirmed that it has had to tweak the game slightly in order to squeeze it into Nintendo's baby, but also stated that the Switch edition will be kept in-line with all other versions of the title in regards to updates and content drops. Here is an FAQ regarding the upcoming port, taken from the official website.

When will DCUO launch on Switch?
DCUO will launch on Switch in Summer 2019. Check back soon for more specific launch dates. 

Will my account or characters transfer from other platforms to Switch?
No. Players will connect to DCUO using their Nintendo Accounts, which will not be linked to existing accounts. 

Will DCUO on Switch be free-to-play?
Yes. As on other platforms, DCUO will be free-to-play on Switch.

Will DCUO on Switch allow crossplay?
DCUO will launch on Switch with a brand-new, fresh server, separate from all other communities. We look forward to exploring crossplay options in the future.
