One of the best shooters of the decade will find itself on one of the most popular consoles. Overwatch is destined for a Nintendo Switch port, with an October 15 release now confirmed during the most recent Nintendo Direct.

ORIGINAL STORY

Last month, it all started with what appeared to be an officially licensed Overwatch Nintendo Switch case. @Wario64, a respected industry leaker and stalwart, noticed it on Amazon before it was quickly removed.

The listing for the case noted it was “officially licensed by Nintendo and Blizzard Entertainment”, which, connecting the dots, points to likely collaboration between Nintendo and Blizzard, and, therefore, a Switch port of Overwatch.

Now, by way of Kotaku, rumours are heating up with word Nintendo will officially announce the Overwatch Switch port during today’s Nintendo Direct, which is scheduled for 8am AEST.
