Overwatch will be released on Nintendo Switch in October

Overwatch will be released on Nintendo Switch in October

Nintendo is promising that the presentation will include "roughly 40 minutes of information" about upcoming Nintendo titles. The game will be out on the Switch on October 31st, so this could very well be the last Direct before it's out. And it wouldn't be a Nintendo Direct if there wasn't a hint at the future, be it Metroid Prime 4 or something totally out of left field.

Nintendo confirmed the direct will focus on Switch titles releasing in 2019, and that includes Luigi's Mansion 3 and Pokémon Sword and Shield. Animal Crossing: New Horizons, with its March 20th release date, probably won't be featured at all, nor will other 2020 games like Spiritfarer or No More Heroes 3.

So yeah, Overwatch on the Switch.

We're particularly interested to see how Nintendo's notoriously bad online services work with a robust online shooter - and if we'll start to see Overwatch characters in other Nintendo games, like Tracer showing up in Super Smash Bros.

The multiplayer shooter was originally released for Windows, Xbox One, and PlayStation 4. The retail listing suggested a European release date of October 18, though Kotaku speculates that October 15 is a more likely North American release date. It may also be the position to re-watch the Direct as soon as it is over.Nintendo's legitimate YouTube channel may even broadcast the newest Direct reside.

Nintendo has also used these Direct live streams to unveil new fighters for Super Smash Bros. What are you hoping for from a port?
