During today's TennoLive (formerly TennoCon), Digital Extremes announced a partnership with developer "Panic Button" to bring Warframe to the Nintendo Switch. Those anxious about Warframe's transition to Switch should rest easy, as many have praised Panic Button's work with both Wolfenstein 2 and DOOM on the system.

Ever since its debut last March, Nintendo Switch has been a haven for games developed by smaller, independent studios.

You play as a member of an ancient race of warriors called the Tenno who are now part of a modern-day war.

Since its release the game has received its fair share of criticism, with Gamespot awarding the game 6/10. Nintendo's Tatsumi Kimishima, Shinya Takahashi, and Susumu Tanaka were on hand to answer questions about Nintendo's plans for indie games going forward, with a particular focus on how it will integrate these kinds of games into its future business strategy.

Warframe is a fast-paced cooperative shooter, now available for PlayStation 4, PC, and Xbox One. Although no release date has been confirmed just yet, you can check out the trailer above to see Warframe running in action on Nintendo Switch. This company has a good track record with creating good Switch games that haven't lost their visual luster.

Not too long ago, the Nintendo Switch's library grew to include the likes of Epic Games' wildly popular multiplayer sandbox survival title, Fortnite, which led to owners of the Big N's hybrid mobile console giving the game's player base a big boost.

"Our goal is cross-platform play", explains Warframe Creative Director Steve Sinclair.
