As rumored, SMITE has now been officially announced for Nintendo Switch and will be arriving early next year on January 24, 2019.  Previously it was rumored that it would be launching today.

Pre-purchase for the $29.99 Founder’s Pack is live now and grants the Foxy Amaterasu skin, as well as an extra 200 Gems.  The base contents are below.

  • Ultimate God Pack – Receive instant access to every God in the game, as well as unlocking every future God when they are released.
  • Dragon Empress Scylla – Summon the power of dragons as Dragon Empress Scylla! This skin is available only on Nintendo Switch™!

  • Exclusive, guaranteed access to the SMITE on Switch™ closed Beta – Coming January 24, 2019!

After closed beta, the game will become free-to-play for all Switch owners like we saw happen with Paladins.

In related news, Hi-Rez studios also announced their plans to roll out cross-progression in addition to cross-play for all three of their current titles.  I am referring to Paladins, SMITE, and Realm Royale.  All the details for this upcoming January 2019 changes are detailed here https://www.hirezstudios.com/crossplay/.
