This may be something to watch for and fantasize about. Jeff Kaplan, Vice President at Blizzard Entertainment and lead director of Overwatch, is really open to Overwatch being a part of the Super Smash Bros. Ultimate world. He’d let Nintendo and the Super Smash Bros. Ultimate development team use “Whatever character” from Overwatch they’d like.
“They’re all our babies, you can have any single one of them. We have 31 to choose from,” Kaplan told IGN in a recent interview when asked what Overwatch character he’d like to see guest-star in Smash Bros. Ultimate.
If he had to pick one though, he’d choose Tracer.
“Tracer’s our girl, Tracer’s our mascot. She’d be my first choice,” he said. “There’s a lot of great runners up. I think a lot of people can immediately see Doomfist gameplay applying to Smash, but if it were up to me, I’d like to see Tracer.”
The principal game producer on the Switch version of Overwatch, Wes Yanagi, seconded that choice of Tracer, but also said he’d like to see Winston make the leap to Smash.
Overwatch comes to Nintendo Switch October 15th, 2019.
