Overwatch is heading to the Nintendo Switch


The award-winning FPS heads to our beloved hybrid!

The first reveal of Nintendo’s recently concluded September Direct confirms a rumor that’s been spreading around this week. That’s the arrival of Blizzard’s award-winning first-person shooter, Overwatch, to the Nintendo Switch. We’re getting the game this October 15th.

The Overwatch version Switch players are getting is dubbed the Legendary Edition. This will include all of the latest heroes, maps, and updates the game has received. Not only that but the Legendary Edition also include these additional freebies:

  • A 3-month Nintendo Switch Online Membership
  • Widowmaker Noire Pre-purchase Bonus Skin
  • 5 Legendary, Epic, and Origin Hero skins
  • Golden Loot Box (if bought by December 31)

Other than that, this is still the Overwatch we all know and love. Except it will have its own unique controls scheme to match the Switch’s capabilities. We won’t have any cross-play though so keep note of that. The game is priced at $39.99 (~Php 2,072) and is now available for pre-purchase.
