Overwatch is one of the biggest games right now, with a solid foundation on the PC - but with the release of the new Nintendo Switch console, we're now hearing news that Overwatch could end up on Nintendo's new console.




During a recent Reddit AMA, Overwatch director Jeff Kaplan said: "I'm loving the Switch! 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".


Now, "getting Overwatch on the Switch" sounds like Blizzard are working on the FPS for Nintendo's new console - but I wouldn't take this as a confirmation just yet. Also, I don't see how a super-fast paced FPS like Overwatch could work with the triggers and small screen, but in docked mode it could be fun - but without a mouse and keyboard? Pass.
