Ever since Overwatch on Switch announcement came right at the beginning of the September 4 Nintendo Direct – after several leaks had teased it several weeks prior.

Now that we know Overwatch is headed to the Switch, players immediately began wondering what the game would look like in 720p and 30 fps on the console’s handheld mode.

What will Overwatch actually look like on the Switch?

Reddit user Owlero decided to see what Overwatch would look like on the Switch’s handheld mode by taking a clip from the game and editing it to run at 30 fps and at 720p, just like it will on the Switch.

Owlero performed their test using the PS4, so the final Switch version could look slightly different, but in all honesty the results don’t look as bad as people are fearing.

There is a slight foggy effect to Owlero’s video, but it’s unknown if that was caused by the settings or is just a byproduct of the video editing process.

    At the time of writing though, all issues with both games appear to have been resolved, but it’s probably smart to be safe when queueing up for Competitive, just in case.

    Overwatch comes to the Nintendo Switch on October 15, so we’re sure to see some gameplay from the new port come out before then to confirm what it will actually play like.

    Until then, players will just have to hope that the Switch can handle Overwatch, but at least Owlero’s demonstration shows it might not be that bad after all.


Overwatch champ Super helps Jimmy Fallon create “cringe” gamer name

Back-to-back Overwatch League champion Matthew ‘Super’ DeLisi was on the Tonight Show starring Jimmy Fallon and helped the host come up with his own gamer tag.

During the October 26 interview, Fallon asked the San Francisco Shock main tank how he came up with his gamertag with the intention of creating his own.

As Super explained, back when he was a kid, he asked his brother to create an account for him. The name his brother came up with, for whatever reason, was Super7100 and he kept that for awhile.

“At some point I just decided the numbers looked stupid, so I cut off the numbers and then I was just stuck with Super,” he explained. “And I just kept it.”

To this, Fallon inquired about any possible formulas for coming up with a name in a segment that Super would later call “cringe” when he rewatched the interview on Twitch.

“How could I come up with my gamer name?” Fallon asked.

“You can find inspiration from literally anything,” DeLisi said, prompting Fallon to pick up his miniature of the Empire State Building.

“I could be Empire,” suggested Fallon. “Or, this is the Statue of Liberty,” he continued, picking up another model. “That’s an old thermometer. Maybe… Old Thermometer. That’s my gamer name.”

“If you’re feeling it, that’s all you,” replied Super who let out an awkward laugh.

“Jimmy ‘Old Thermometer’ Fallon,” he remarked. “And a come from behind win for Old Thermometer!”

Interestingly, this isn’t Super’s first time on Jimmy Fallon as the Shock player first went on the show back in 2019 with his former teammate Jay ‘Sinatraa’ Won.

Whether Super is back for a third time may come down to if the Shock can win a third championship in season four of the Overwatch League having just won consecutive titles.
