Game developer Hi-Rez Studios announced that its hero shooter Paladins will arrive on the Nintendo Switch on June 12th. It will launch next week as a $30 Founders Pack that includes all current and future champions, with a free-to-play version coming later in the summer. But the studio claims the Switch version will run at 60 frames per second and support cross-play with the Xbox One edition.

Paladins launched in Early Access in fall 2016 but had its full release back in May, and currently exists as a free-to-play game on PC, PS4 and Xbox One. While it has a smaller playerbase than rival hero shooter Overwatch, the Switch could always use more shooters -- and cross-play with another platform is exciting. This confirms one part of a multi-game leak predicting E3 titles coming to the Switch, which allegedly includes Fortnite and Dragonball FighterZ.
