Overwatch for Nintendo Switch rumors are nothing new but a recent Amazon listing for an official Switch case from Blizzard for their beloved shooter seems to be offering some credibility to that speculation. A wild Amazon listing was spotted over by Twitter user Wario64 that definitely kicked that rumor mill back into high gear:

Part of what draws people to Blizzard’s shooter is that despite its initial simplicity at first glance, the game’s lore is actually incredibly intricate. Every character in the online adventure is vastly different in personality, backstory, and play style. Couple that with new cosmetics, events, lore, and tons more – the sky really is the limit and they have no real reason to move on quite yet or really change anything at all. That being said, many are itching to learn more about some of the other characters that have seen little time in the spotlight, much like my boi Lucio.
To take that experience on the go would be just the thing Blizzard needs to bring back the game into its full spotlight. Though still enjoyable and very much getting continuous support, the fanbase has seen a dramatic dip due to time and lack of any real game-changing content. Being able to take the enjoyable online title beyond homebase could be the perfect shapeup needed to get those numbers back up.
So far Blizzard has yet to confirm any of these rumors, but BlizzCon is just around the corner so maybe we’ll see some form of confirmation then! As for Overwatch itself, the game is available now on Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC.
