The long rumoured Nintendo Switch port of Overwatch looks to have leaked ahead of its official announcement in today's Nintendo Direct.

Thanks, yet again to some retail leaks the Switch port of the hero-shooter appears to be releasing on October 18. Overwatch initially released on PS4, Xbox One and PC back in May 2016 and has seen a steady stream of updates and content since launch.

The official announcement is expected this morning at 10 AM during Nintendo's Direct stream.

I've sunk far too many hours into the game since launch but still look forward to playing some matches on the go.
