Dauntless is coming to Nintendo Switch

The free-to-play Behemoth hunting of Dauntless is coming to Nintendo Switch this year.

Dauntless is coming to Nintendo Switch with a release date of late 2019.

If you've followed AllGamers at all over the past month or two, you may have noticed that we're big fans of Dauntless, Phoenix Labs' free-to-play take on the Monster Hunter formula. While we've enjoyed jumping into Pursuits and Patrols on PC and PS4, we've sorely wanted a Switch version to let us tackle Behemoths on the go or at least in the kitchen while we wait for the kettle to boil.

Thankfully it seems like our prayers have been answered, as part of this year's E3 2019 Nintendo Direct it was announced that Dauntless will be coming to Nintendo Switch. So far all we know is that it'll be getting a Late 2019 release, but we expect to see more news from the Dauntless team soon regarding the port. The small clip shown during the direct makes it looks like there'll be a small graphical hit for the port, namely to the visual effects of certain attacks. It's a tradeoff we'll happily take for some portable hunts.Collecting those Deathmarks will also be a much easier daily task.
