We have some potentially great news for Nintendo Switch users. It looks like there’s some truth to the rumor about Blizzard bringing Overwatch to Nintendo Switch over three years after the game’s debut. The rumor mill started churning out, even more, when a listing for an Overwatch-themed Switch case popped up on Amazon last week. Meanwhile, a retail leak that’s been making the rounds hinted that the team-based shooter is coming to the console on October 18th in Europe.
Also, Kotaku reportedly confirmed with sources that the game will hit the Nintendo Switch as early as next month. It suggested that this version will drop in North America on October 15th, which is just in time for the annual Halloween event. Nice timing, so it makes sense.
We might get official confirmation on the port later today, as the latest Nintendo Direct stream will start at 6 PM ET. There was also speculation about Overwatch mascot Tracer making her way to Super Smash Bros. Ultimate as a DLC character, so we might find out if that rumor’s true as well. Even if one of these rumors is true, it is very good news for fans of the game who are using a Nintendo Switch.
