No specific Nintendo Switch information was released, but we assume this version may sacrifice some graphical quality for smoother gameplay. The Legendary Edition includes over three years’ worth of content updates and gameplay enhancements, so players on the Switch definitely won’t be missing out on much from the other platforms.

“Overwatch brings players together to cooperate 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.
