After being rumored for several weeks, the Overwatch version of the Switch was officially announced at Nintendo Direct this month. Technically, this makes the Overwatch character eligible to be invited to become a Super Smash Bros roster, but of course, many Smash and Nintendo communities don’t agree that the last DLC slot is used by characters who are “foreign” to them.
Producers from Blizzard, Wes Yanagi, and Andrew Boyd also did not think their game characters would be invited to the Smash roster but did not refuse to make this happen. Through interviews with Inverse (via Dexerto), the two producers were asked who from all Overwatch heroes was suitable for Smash. Both of them were unable to answer that question.
“It’s hard to choose your favorite hero. All of them have their own eligibility for Smash and it’s really a good idea. Everything is my favorite. Very cool if it can happen but it all depends on Nintendo. “
Why not Overwatch?
With so many characters from other franchises that are more feasible, there is little chance Tracer and his friends will come to Smash. But if Nintendo opens the second Season Pass, it is possible that this will happen especially as Super Smash Bros Ultimate looks no longer specializing in Nintendo mascot games for now.
