Here’s something I thought I would never say– the Nintendo Switch is now the home to a wide variety of shooting games. From Fortnite to Paladins, this month has brought a whole slew of familiar shooters to Nintendo’s handy hybrid. Of course, both of those titles are due for some new company, as Madfinger Games has announced that its mobile first-person shooter Shadowgun Legends is coming to the Nintendo Switch.

Shadowgun Legends was initially released for iOS and Android this past March. However, don’t let the game’s mobile origins fool you; it currently boasts a myriad of different gameplay modes, including a Story Mode and the ability to play either co-operatively or PvP with other players. In addition to these modes, the game also features a hub world where players can congregate, create guilds, and matchmake against other players.

In addition to being an FPS, Shadowgun Legends also includes a ton of RPG elements. The game is filled to the brim with collectibles, flaunting five hundred distinct weapons, and one thousand different pieces of armor. In true Destiny style, the rarest of these items are only available by completing raids, so all of you treasure hunters should start sharpening up your skills as soon as possible.
