In a new report from Kotaku, it looks like Overwatch is coming to the Nintendo Switch. Set to be announced in Wednesday’s Nintendo Direct, an image leaked showing the game’s European release date. Set to release on October 18, this is the first real confirmation of Overwatch on the hybrid console.
This information cannot be officially verified but there is some evidence supporting the arrival. Last month, an Overwatch-themed Switch case was shown on Amazon and then de-listed. The case was officially licensed by Nintendo and Blizzard Entertainment.
