Hi-Rez Studios’ fantasy hero shooter Paladins is coming to Nintendo Switch on June 12, the developer announced today. The Switch version will run at 60 frames per second and support cross-play multiplayer with the Xbox One version of Paladins.

Next week’s release of Paladins on Switch will be sold in the form of a Founder’s Pack that costs $29.99. That version includes access to all of the game’s playable champions, as well as all future champions, and exclusive cosmetic items. A free-to-play version will be released sometime this summer, Hi-Rez said.

Hi-Rez’s announcement lends further credence to an apparent E3 leak that outed unannounced Switch versions of Paladins, Dragon Ball FighterZ and Fortnite, as well as unannounced games Killer Queen Black and Overcooked 2.

Paladins was originally released in 2016 as an early access game on Steam. The shooter, which features 36 playable champions and uses a card-based ability loadout system, was officially released earlier this year on PlayStation 4, Windows PC and Xbox One.

Hi-Rez released a spinoff of Paladins earlier this week on Steam titled Realm Royale. That game is a battle royale-style 100-player fantasy shooter and was previously announced under the working title Paladins Battlegrounds.
