Overwatch: Legendary Edition
The world could always use more heroes—and starting October 15, Nintendo Switch players will be able to join more than 40 million players from around the globe in the fight for the future with the arrival of Overwatch: Legendary Edition.
Overwatch: Legendary Edition puts the definitive version of Blizzard Entertainment’s acclaimed team shooter in Nintendo Switch owners’ hands, complete with the latest content and gameplay updates. Players will select from a roster of 31 vibrant heroes as they face off in a variety of casual and competitive multiplayer modes and battle over map objectives in 28 different locations.
In addition, Nintendo Switch gamers have the option to take control of their heroes in a whole new way using the console’s built-in gyroscopic motion controls, which let players tilt their console to line up the perfect shot as McCree, pilot D.Va through the air, or quickly turn to deflect incoming projectiles as Genji.
“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. “The Legendary Edition includes more than three years’ worth of content updates and gameplay enhancements, and we’re excited to team up with Nintendo to provide players with new ways to enjoy the full Overwatch experience—including on the go.”
Overwatch on the go. What’s not to like?
Raging Loop is about a cursed settlement in a Japanese forest. As part of an ancient tradition, red fog confines the village as ominous animal gods possess the inhabitants and force them into a perverse mind game. Every night, the person controlled by the wolf spirit will kill someone and every day, the villagers have to select a suspect to be hanged, in the hopes of them being the killer.
Haruaki Fusaishi, the main character of Raging Loop will quickly realise that he is stuck in a seemingly endless loop. Whenever he dies, he returns to the first day of his arrival to the Yasumizu settlement. He will take advantage of the knowledge acquired before being murdered. This new piece of information will be materialized by a Key that can be used to progress further in the story.
Raging Loop also doesn’t simply end when the story is over! The true ending will unlock the Revelation mode that will give access to additional scenes highlighted in red and show the inner thoughts of other characters.
Coming to Nintendo Switch and PlayStation 4 on October 22nd!
