Overwatch Officially Announced for Nintendo Switch; Arriving Next Month

Blizzard has officially announced that its wildly popular FPS Overwatch is making its way to Nintendo Switch in October.

Well, one of Blizzard’s worst-kept secrets has been officially announced. After being rumored when an Overwatch-themed Switch case was leaked a week or so ago, Blizzard officially announced that the massively popular FPS Overwatch will finally be making its way to the Switch during a Nintendo Direct just a few minutes ago.

During the Direct, we also got a first look at the game running on the Switch alongside a trailer for the game. If you want to check out what the game looks like on the platform for yourself, we have included the trailer at the end of the article.

In my opinion, the game looks like it’s running fairly well, which I’m a little surprised about if I’m honest. I, personally, can’t wait to get my hands on the game when it comes out. I’ve been craving for an FPS on Nintendo Switch and I feel like Overwatch would be the perfect fit for that craving.

It doesn’t seem like you’ll be getting anything to special with this port, mostly because Overwatch doesn’t really have paid DLC, so everything should be up-to-date with the current game right out of the box. It’ll be interesting to see if you get any loot boxes with the purchase like the previously released Game of the Year Edition.

Overwatch is set to come to Nintendo Switch on October 15, 2019. If you don’t want to wait for the Switch version, the game is also available on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Windows PC, and has been for quite some time.
