DC Universe Online is coming to Nintendo Switch

Superhero adventure makes Nintendo debut this summer

Superman, the Joker, Wonder Woman, and more than 300 comic book characters are coming to Nintendo Switch in DC Universe Online this summer, publisher Daybreak Games announced today.

The Switch will make the fourth current platform for the eight-year-old superhero adventure, joining PlayStation 4, Windows PC, and Xbox One. DC Universe Online launched in 2011 for Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and PC.

Though the game has changed substantially over the years, it has always been about players creating a hero — or villain — from a deep set of costume and super-power options, and then sending them on adventures in DC Comics’ Gotham City, Metropolis, and elsewhere, interacting with the publisher’s greatest and most familiar super-characters. More than 300 from DC’s stable appear in the game.

“As soon as the Nintendo Switch released, the development team couldn’t help but wonder, what if …?” creative director S.J. Mueller said in a statement. “Long story short, we are so excited for players to take their DC experience wherever they go.”

The most recent updates to DCUO include the Justice League Dark episode, which launched in March; Atlantis, which launched in November; and Teen Titans: Judas Contract last July. DC Universe Online is a free-to-play game, with expansions, certain power sets and other optional content and features sold at a premium. Monthly memberships entitling buyers to everything start at $14.99 a month.
