Overwatch director chooses 'Tracer' for Super Smash Bros. Ultimate

Overwatch Director Says Nintendo Can Have Any Character For Smash

They're all our babies, you can have any single one of them.

While speaking to IGN about a number of things, Kaplan was asked which Overwatch character he'd most like to see in Smash Bros.

Overwatch's game director Jeff Kaplan reiterated fan sentiment and even offered up the game's 31 heroes for Nintendo's pick of the litter.

Blizzard, for its part, seems very willing to allow the use of Overwatch characters in Super Smash Bros.


Rumors first began circulating of an Overwatch and Super Smash Bros. Nintendo just lately introduced it was increasing the roster with extra characters coming as paid DLC.

As for Overwatch's Switch producer Wes Yanagi, he says that he would love to see Winston come over to Smash Bros. "There's a lot of great runners up". It's not often we can trace the source of the hubbub back to a major developer like Blizzard, but that's exactly what's happening when it comes to seeing Overwatch characters in Smash. I think many people can immediately imagine Doomfist applied gameplay to Smash, but if it were up to me, I'd like to see Tracer.

Considering that Tracer is the cover star for Overwatch, she'd be the obvious candidate to appear in a game filled to the brim with cover stars and standard-bearers for various franchises, some of which holding no current affiliation to Nintendo, though Doomfist would be a lot of fun too.

One final DLC character remains to be revealed for Smash Ultimate's Fighters Pass, which is set to introduce its final fighter before February 2020.
