Will we see an Overwatch character in Super Smash Bros Ultimate? What does the team think about this?
Ever since the teasing and leaking and then reveal of Overwatch coming to the Nintendo Switch in October, fans have been speculating whether this was just one part of a deal. Meaning, if the Switch got the main game, would that mean that a character from the title would end up in the massively popular Super Smash Bros Ultimate.
The precedent behind this is that there have been numerous 3rd party characters in Ultimate that only have loose ties to the Nintendo consoles or handhelds of the past. So having an Overwatch character makes sense.
In an interview with Inverse, two producers of the game talked about the possibilities and noted that they would be up for it. However, it was “up to Nintendo”.
Given that more DLC characters have already been announced, anything is possible.
