Amazon listing may have just leaked Overwatch for Nintendo Switch

Blizzard’s team-based hero shooter Overwatch may be coming to Nintendo Switch.

On Monday, accessory maker PowerA briefly listed a carrying case for the Switch through Amazon that was Overwatch themed. The black and orange case featured the Overwatch logo, and the accessory noted that it was “officially licensed by Nintendo and Blizzard Entertainment.” The product listing was quickly removed from Amazon after being posted to Twitter and video game forum Resetera.

Blizzard has not officially announced a port of Overwatch for Switch, but it certainly wouldn’t be out of the question. The company brought the Diablo 3 Eternal Collection to Switch in 2018, and Overwatch game director Jeff Kaplan addressed the possibility of a Switch port in 2017, sounding optimistic but calling adapting the shooter for the portable “challenging.”

“I’m loving the Switch!” Kaplan said in a Reddit AMA session at the time. “My second favorite gaming platform of all time is the 3DS. Getting [Overwatch] on the Switch is very challenging for us. But we’re always open minded about exploring possible platforms.”

With rumors of an impending Nintendo Direct presentation and BlizzCon 2019 coming in November, we’ll find out soon enough if this is more than just a strange coincidence.
