Apex Legends “Champion Edition” Physical Release Confirmed

Respawn Entertainment and EA have now confirmed Apex Legends is coming to the Switch next month on 9th March.

A physical version has also been locked in. After listings were discovered in Japan, EB Games in Australia (GameStop) has revealed a retail copy will be released in stores alongside the digital launch.

As indicated by the Japanese listings, this version is a “download code only” release. In other words, there’s no game card. This isn’t all that surprising considering the game itself is essentially a battle royale live service that is regularly updated.

Here’s a look at the box art, courtesy of JP’s Switchmania:

While the base digital version of the game is a free download, this physical copy will set you back $49.95 AUD (or your regional equivalent).

This “Champion Edition” includes 9 legends unlocked, 3 exclusive legendary character skins, 3 exclusive legendary weapon skins, exclusive legendary gun charm and 1,000 Apex Coins.
