Officially Licensed Overwatch Nintendo Switch Case Listing Suggests a Port is Coming
A Nintendo Switch case listing on Amazon indicates that an Overwatch Nintendo Switch port could be coming soon.
While it seems like every game is coming to Nintendo Switch these days, there are still a ton of highly requested ports. One of these is Overwatch from Blizzard Entertainment. The multiplayer shooter is insanely popular on other platforms and Blizzard and Nintendo collaborated last year on a Diablo III: Eternal Collection port, so it definitely doesn’t seem like one would be entirely out of the question. In fact, the possibility of an Overwatch Nintendo Switch port just got a lot more likely today as PowerA briefly listed a new Switch case on Amazon that was distinctly Overwatch themed.
As was noted by Wario64 on Twitter, the product was officially licensed by Nintendo and Blizzard Entertainment. This, along with the fact that PowerA is a popular Switch peripheral seller and that there were several high quality images seems to suggest that this port is real. The Overwatch Nintendo Switch case was delisted soon after it was spotted as well, adding even more fuel to the fire.

With a Nintendo Switch port now seeming more likely than ever, it is just a matter of waiting to learn when it was coming out. Nothing has been confirmed as of now, but it is worth noting that Nintendo typically holds Directs in September and October and that the Diablo 3 port was announced in August 2018, so hopefully we hear about it soon. If neither of those possible announcement windows come to fruition, we could always learn something at this year’s BlizzCon.
If Blizzard or Nintendo do confirm a Nintendo Switch port of Overwatch at any time in the near future, DualShockers will be sure to let you know. In the meantime, you can pick up Diablo III: Eternal Collection on Amazon.
