Daybreak Games has announced that DC Universe Online will enter the Switch. When DCUO is released for the Switch this summer, players will be able to achieve their hero or evil fantasy.
DC Universe Online (DCUO) was released on January 11, 2011, which is a free-to-play action combat massive multiplayer online game. It is based on the fictional universe of DC Comics, which allows player to create a new, original character that interacts with the iconic heroes and villains of DC Comics.
Like many MMO Games, the world of DC Universe Online is always changing, and now Nintendo Switch players will be able to access all of them anytime, anywhere. The game now has more than 300 heroes and villains based on the DC Comics series, and players can even access the latest content of the game, such as the Atlantis or Justice League Dark released in March.
“Bringing such a massive online game to Nintendo Switch has been a dream come true,” said SJ Mueller, Creative Director of DC Universe Online. “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.”

Given the size of the game, the developer's work has been done because they are suitable for Nintendo's portable hardware. Having said that, the latest version should contain everything the player is familiar with in the game. According to the CBR interview, the Switch version has only minor changes compared to other consoles, especially it does not include cross-platform games, but all common content will be rendered and playable on the Switch.
