The cavalry is going mobile!
Overwatch, Blizzard’s popular first-person hero shooter, is set to go portable for the first time with its release on the Nintendo Switch in October as per yesterday’s Nintendo Direct.

Based on the trailer, players can expect the full Overwatch experience on-the-go with a few add-ons like motion controls for aiming and select hero abilities. Buying the game comes with fifteen skins plus three months of Nintendo Switch Online (given that online play requires a subscription to the service). Cross-platform play isn’t a thing here, as it is with the game’s outings on the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.
Overwatch for the Nintendo Switch comes out on October 15, and is now available for pre-purchase on the Nintendo eShop.
