Overwatch May Be Coming to the Nintendo Switch

The Nintendo Switch is a video game system that has rapidly grown in popularity since its launch. It’s no surprise that the platform is getting some major ports, such as Diablo III and The Witcher 3. It looks like another major port may be coming its way and it’s Blizzard’s own Overwatch.

Accessory and peripherals-maker PowerA have listed a brand new, licensed Nintendo Switch case that is clearly themed after Overwatch. As 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 Nintendo 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 Blizzcon 2019.

For now, be sure to stay tuned to as we will be reporting more on this as soon as information becomes available.

Pokdepinion: Given the game’s fast-paced nature, not sure how it will be like to play with Joy-Cons. Having cross-play will certainly make it much harder for Switch owners to play, that’s for sure.
