Apex Legends cosplayer steals fans’ hearts with flawless Loba outfit

One Apex Legends fan has created what could be one of the best cosplays for Loba that we’ve seen since the High society Thief was first released at the start of Season 4.

The quick-handed Legend came to Apex in May of 2020, and since then she’s become a favorite for her ability to pluck the most high-value loot off the map, even if her Burglar’s Best Friend ability is touch and go at the best of times.

We’ve definitely seen some great costumes of her created since release, but very few come close to the near-flawless one recently shared by Polish cosplayer ‘Sosenka.’

When you look at the side by side shot of the artist next to her cosplay, it’s almost as if it’s two different people entirely, with Loba herself brought into the real world.

From the hair to the makeup, Sosenka’s Loba looks just about as detailed as you could possibly get, all the way down to the wolf tattoo perfectly placed just beneath her neck.

Accessory-wise this one comes loaded with all of the bells and whistles. Her wolf staff is present in all of its glory, though whether or not it’s capable of flight or stealing loot from the surrounding area is unknown.

As if all of that wasn’t enough, Sosenka even threw in some yellow colored contacts to give her the Legend’s yellow canine eyes. A bit creepy, but also the cherry on top when it comes to this deeply detailed cosplay.

The Polish artist doesn’t just limit herself to Apex Legends though – far from it in fact. One look at her Instagram and you’ll see everything from Team Rocket’s Jesse to an incredible Gandalf that actually makes her look like an old man.

Despite all the great examples, we do have to admit that Loba is one of Sosenka’s best creations yet (even if we are a little biased on the matter). That being said though, we can’t wait to see what she comes up with next.

Respawn Entertainment has announced that they are delaying the official release of Apex Legends on Nintendo Switch, after announcing their launch on Steam for PC players.

The news that Apex was coming to Switch was first shared during the EA Play Live event on June 18, where they revealed the next stages of the game’s development. It finally put a host of rumors and leaks to bed since Apex’s debut back in 2019, as players wanted to immediately take the Arena with them on-the-go shortly after launch.

The news would have opened the game to expand its player count by millions, but Switch players will now have to wait a little longer after further delays were announced.

Apex Legends Nintendo Switch release date

Respawn confirmed that the new Switch port has been delayed until early 2021 after it was expected to arrive with the Steam version of the game.

“For those who game on the Nintendo Switch, we’re still hard at work on the port, but in order to do justice to the game and make it into the great experience Switch players deserve, our team needs more time,” Apex Game Director Chad Grenier confirmed, on October 23.

“This year has brought on unexpected new challenges, to put it mildly, and we don’t want to rush anything out,” the Respawn dev continued, “Switch owners can expect to get their hands on Apex Legends next year.”

EA
Apex Legends will be on all the major consoles in early 2021.

While it is being delayed, he confirmed that it still arrive with all of the expected features, “of course, when Apex Legends does launch on Switch, it’ll come with support for cross-platform play, our latest seasonal content, and full feature parity with the other versions of the game.”

This won’t be the first time a major battle royale comes to Nintendo Switch. EA and Apex Legends are going to compete against Epic Games and Fortnite for the many battle royale fans on the platform.

The initial announcement was a longtime coming. Reports for a Nintendo Switch port have been around for about as long as Apex Legends has been released to the world.

In a 2019 interview only months after Apex’s release, Project lead at the time, Drew McCoy, said that the company knew a Nintendo port was on many people’s wishlist. Since then, it’s been a waiting game for Nintendo fans who have been waiting to get into the Arena.

Respawn Entertainment
Players from all walks of consoles will be able to drop into Apex Legends soon.

There were a lot of questions revolving around the technical limitations of the Switch that would be a hurdle for a port, but the developers are now committed to releasing it early in 2021.

It’s unclear what the download size for the Switch version will be, so stay tuned to Dexerto for all the latest information on the upcoming Apex Legends port.
