Is Overwatch Finally Coming To The Switch?

Overwatch has been a long requested game for the Nintendo Switch. With Blizzard’s support coming to a Nintendo system for the first time in decades with Diablo III last year, many were wondering if maybe they’d extend the relationship to more games.

Well, today Amazon put up a Nintendo Switch carrying case adorned with Overwatch symbols. The yellow and black case by PowerA looks like the real deal. What would the point be of releasing a case featuring a game that doesn’t exist on the system? Exactly…

The listing was quickly removed, but of course when something hits the internet, it’s hard to erase its existence forever. We fully expect a September Nintendo Direct, which could be the time that a game like this is revealed. Or, perhaps Blizzard would hold off until later in the year at Blizzcon? Either way, where there’s smoke there’s fire, and it appears that Overwatch may finally be coming to the Switch. Nothing’s for sure until confirmed, so sit tight!
