It’s confirmed, Nintendo Switch players will soon be able to join more than 40 million Overwatch players with the arrival of Overwatch Legendary Edition.
The release will also let gamers take control of heroes in a whole new way, utilizing the Nintendo Switch’s built-in gyroscopic motion controls. Tilting your console to line up the perfect shot as McCree, pilot D.Va through the air, or quickly turn to deflect incoming projectiles as Genji.
“Overwatch brings players together to co-operate and compete in a bright and optimistic vision of the future, and we’re looking forward to welcoming Nintendo Switch gamers into the fun,” said J. Allen Brack, president of Blizzard Entertainment. “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.”
Overwatch Legendary Edition will come with 15 bonus skins for a range of heroes and a three-month Nintendo Switch Online individual membership! This caught me out with Super Mario Marker Maker 2 as it’s required to play online something I did’t think of at the time of buying.
Overwatch Legendary Edition for Nintendo Switch will be available in a boxed version (containing a code to download the game) and a digital version via the Nintendo eShop.
