Overwatch for Nintendo Switch Confirmed

by Liana Ruppert

After a week of rumors, Overwatch for the Nintendo Switch is confirmed. Through a previous leak, we knew that the Blizzard shooter would be making its way to the hybrid console on October 15th, but now that it’s confirmed Nintendo fans have a few months to prep all of their meta complaints in advance. 

The Overwatch Legendary Edition will be available both as a physical and digital copy for $39.99 and will also include a three-month Nintendo Switch online membership. It’s the best way to jump right in when constantly on the go. 

Something we mentioned in our previous coverage is that [art 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.

Now that it’s confirmed, Overwatch for Nintendo Switch officially arrives on October 15th. Are you excited for the mobile move? Hit us up over on Twitter @PrimaGames to tell us your thoughts!
