Overwatch is an incredibly successful title for Blizzard, bringing together more than 40 million players in its first two years. This number could be much higher with a port on Nintendo Switch, and its beautiful aesthetic would feel like home on the hybrid console. Blizzard has already indicated in the past that a Switch version is possible and that they would like to introduce the game to a new audience. Despite this, there was no official revelation. However, the news of a switch port may have leaked.
The case of Overwatch on Switch
The well-known PowerA device manufacturer recently released an Amazon list for a new black and yellow Switch box. Strangely, the case is wearing a Overwatch theme. Why create a special case for a game that is not on the platform? I suppose there is a (small) market for just about anything, but the description becomes more interesting. According to PowerA, this case is officially licensed by Nintendo and Blizzard. I could see a third-party company creating a custom-made case, why would Nintendo and Blizzard have licensed a product for a non-existent game?
It seems likely that we will soon see an official announcement for Overwatch on the switch. Just a few days ago we reported that GameStop had several new lists for the mystery Switch games. A Nintendo Direct could be imminent, and it would be the perfect place for Nintendo to release this unveiling. As fun as free-to-play paladins is, it would be good to finally have Overwatch on the switch.
Update: A few minutes after the publication of this article, the Amazon list has been removed. We have included a screenshot below as proof.[Source]
