Taking the currently problematic #Nintendo Switch console shortage aside, there is currently a big interest from a number game developers to have their titles ported to Nintendo's latest gaming console. Among those that have expressed their interest is Blizzard Entertainment. The #Video Game Developer and publisher is now apparently looking into bringing two of their best titles to the console.

Blizzard's interest in the new platform

Blizzard has so far revealed that they are looking into bringing two particular titles to the Switch, namely "Hearthstone" and "#Overwatch." The former will likely be the easier one to port to the new console seeing as that the Switch is already equipped with a multi-touch display.

"Hearthstone" is played by over 50 million players worldwide and is available on Android, iOS, and Windows PC. Bringing it to the new console would only make sense in order to further expand its player base.

As for "Overwatch," the team-based first person shooter is apparently more challenging to port as mentioned by Blizzard's game director, Jeff Kaplan. Despite the challenge, the director mentioned on Reddit that his team is quite open minded and they are happy to explore the possibilities with the new platform.

First party games for the Switch

Nintendo as a company currently has a lot riding on the success of their latest generation console. Given this fact, the company will be bringing their A-game this time around to ensure their console's success. So far the games they have already released, such as "The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild," "Fast RMX," and "Super Bomberman R," are doing quite well as most have received positive reviews from gamers and critics alike.

Will any of the games make it on the Nintendo system soon?

Blizzard hasn't really denied their interest in Nintendo's new platform, but this can't really be construed as a confirmation that both games are indeed coming for the Switch. The developers still have a lot of challenges ahead as they are working on an entirely new system. However, once all of the bureaucracy and groundwork has been laid, the games will likely be making it to the console in due time.
