WWE superstar Zelina Vega has got the internet, and Apex Legends fans, hot under the collar after unveiling her perfect Loba cosplay. The wrestling queen’s stunning outfit could well be the best Loba take we’ve seen yet!

Vega, real name Thea Trinidad, first made her wrestling debut all the way back in February 2010. Since then, she’s carved out a name for herself as WWE’s resident “bad b*tch,” taking no prisoners on her way to the top.

It seems very fitting then, that the Puerto Rican superstar chose Apex Legends leading lady Loba to cosplay on August 19. Loba has won the hearts of Apex fans since her Season 5 debut, thanks to her sassy, “get the job done” attitude.

Loba Andrade made her debut last season as the 13th character in Respawn’s ever-growing battle royale. Her hunt for murderous simulacrum Revenant has dominated the game’s story ever since, even spilling on into Season 6 too.

Vega unveiled her Apex Legends cosplay on August 19, revealing the perfect outfit in a post on Instagram. She accompanied the cosplay reveal with a fitting audio track blaring out the battle royale’s iconic main theme.

This new Loba cosplay may well be the best we’ve seen here at Dexerto. Vega made sure to include each and every detail, starting with the Apex Legends heroine’s tight-fitting white and gold battle jacket, adorned with orange trim.

Vega also pulled on Loba’s knee-high black boots, and had the tan garters the Translocating Thief uses to carry her guns on too. The WWE Raw superstar even made sure to include the Portuguese legend’s fingerless gloves as well.

“Gold goes well with a diamond like me”

The most stunning part of the already perfect Loba cosplay, however, was Vega’s attention to detail with her hair and makeup. Loba wears dark red eyeshadow in every Apex Games battle and the WWE star certainly looked the part once she added that stunning detail.

Finally, Loba wears her hair in two long pigtails, hanging down nearly to her hips. Vega was able to bundle her own long hair into the same design, completing the Apex Legends look.

“Gold goes so well with a diamond like me,” Vega wrote alongside her Apex Legends cosplay reveal. The developers seemed to agree too, replying on Instagram to praise the outfit. “Okay Loba, we see you!” they wrote, adding a fire emoji.

Trinidad’s amazing Loba cosplay is far from the first time she’s dived into gaming culture for costume ideas too. In early August, she celebrated Overwatch with a stunning D.Va outfit. In June, she also appeared as Pokemon’s Nessa.

The 29-year-old World Wrestling Entertainment star also streams regularly on Twitch, airing near-daily broadcasts since isolation began. She can be found at twitch.tv/atozonyoutube and, of course, in the squared circle.

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.

“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.”

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.

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.
