Rumors were confirmed when Overwatch was announced for the Nintendo Switch at the Sept 4 Nintendo Direct. Speculations had been flying around since Overwatch game director Jeff Kaplan’s June announcement that there would be “something exciting” coming late summer/early fall of this year.

The biggest difference players will notice when playing on the Nintendo Switch, compared to other consoles, is that they will be able to control certain elements through the gyroscopic motion controls.

A Nintendo account and Nintendo Switch Online will be needed to play (as well as a stable internet connection), but the good news is that a three month subscription is included if the game is pre-purchase here. Players will also get the Noire skin for Widowmaker, and if purchased before Dec 31 you will also get a golden loot-box, which will guarantee a legendary item! Overwatch for Nintendo Switch will be available in stores on October 15. Check out the official announcement for the highly anticipated game below:

Despite having been a fangirl for as long as she can remember, it wasn’t until Emelie left the security of her hometown in the north of Sweden for the hustle and bustle of Gothenburg, that she found her tribe and really immersed herself in fandom. She currently works as second line field engineer tech support, and shares her home with cats Loki and Stiles. In her free time you can find her either playing Dungeons & Dragons 5e, or on Twitter (@killingnormalcy) yelling about Critical Role, Marvel, Twenty One Pilots, and Overwatch.
