“Overwatch brings players together to cooperate and compete in a bright and optimistic vision of the future, and we’re looking forward to welcoming Nintendo Switch gamers into the fun,” J. Allen Brack, president of Blizzard Entertainment, said in a statement. “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.”
On top of the game being announced for Nintendo Switch, Blizzard has confirmed that it will come with something extra these being motion controls as well as if you pre-order the game you will get three months Nintendo Online Subscription and a Widowmaker skin.
Blizzard also sent a report over to Engadget stating that Overwatch on the Nintendo Switch will not launch with cross-play.
“We’ve seen how compelling cross-system play can be for our community, and we’re excited about the potential. There’s still a lot of work to do on both our side and the platforms’ side to determine whether this is something that makes sense for Overwatch, and we’re keeping an eye on how cross-play systems and technology develop.”
