For any of you hoping to pick up Overwatch Legendary Edition retail version for the hopes of a physical cart. I am afraid that it won’t be the case. In the official fact Sheet from the Nintendo America Press site, Overwatch Legendary Edition will be available at retail but the box will include a download code for the game. This is following in the same vein as Wolfenstein’s Youngblood, which also had a retail box with download code.
We have the excerpt below.
*Nintendo Switch Online membership, Nintendo Account, and internet connection required to play. Retail edition includes download code only (at least 16GB storage space required). Nintendo Switch Online family membership holders are not eligible for 3-month membership offer.
So what do you guys and girls make of this? Are you excited for Overwatch coming to the Nintendo Switch? Will you be opting for the digital version instead as you will end up with an empty Switch box anyway? Feel free to air your thoughts in the comments below.
