After speculation, rumour, and a branded carry case - it's finally official. Blizzard is bringing Overwatch to the Nintendo Switch with Overwatch Legendary Edition. Which, in addition to featuring all modes, maps, heroes, and so forth - will also arrive with Switch-specific controls. As in motion controls.
That we can already see disabling in the options. Ahem. As per the announcement trailer below we do get to see gameplay footage of Overwatch running on Nintendo Switch hardware. And, yeah, it looks great. With the vibrant art style and animation proving to be a great fit for the handheld hybrid.
“Overwatch brings players together to co-operate and compete in a bright and optimistic vision of the future, and we’re looking forward to welcoming Nintendo Switch gamers into the fun,” said J. Allen Brack, president of Blizzard Entertainment. “The Legendary Edition includes more than three years’ worth of content updates and gameplay enhancements, and we’re excited to team up with Nintendo to provide players with new ways to enjoy the full Overwatch experience—including on the go.”
Overwatch Legendary Edition for Nintendo Switch will be available for $69.95 AUD on October 16.
