I was expecting them to just gives us a straight port of the console version. Adding motion controls means this was a bigger investment than I anticipated. Very much excited for this.

I might check this out, but I may have gotten my fill of this type of game from Paladins.

I'm one of the few that left Overwatch for Paladins. Not sure if I want to go back even with motion controls.

I enjoyed Overwatch on PC, and I am excited it is coming to Switch, but not sure I want to re-buy it to do so, especially since Paladins is a free alternative. If they include cross play with PC it would push me to purchase because then I could play with my PC-owning friends.
