YouTuber reimagines Overwatch into a Final Fantasy-like JRPG, and it looks pretty cool

By Kin Boon on Jun 20, 2017

The huge following of Overwatch has inspired many creative works from fans, namely in the form of fan art, cosplay, webcomics, and fanfics. Such outlets are not stopping anytime soon, as shown in a new video showing how Blizzard’s hero shooter will play out as a classic turn-based JRPG.

YouTube channel The Salt Factory created a video detailing the mechanics of Final Fantasy being incorporated into Overwatch, complete with the iconic exploration and battle soundtracks. McCree is the chosen one in the small town of Route 66, as he travels with a balanced party encompassing Reinhardt, Bastion, and Mercy. The party then stumbled upon a wild Roadhog, which turned out be one heck of a boss battle as they took turns in unleashing their ultimates before landing the killer blow.

It’s a bit too long and stale for my taste, but hey, maybe this video will inspire Blizzard to consider some sort of a spin-off for Overwatch, since the franchise is not going away anytime soon.

Just your 'average' media newbie. Have interest in gaming (duh), superhero series, and I enjoy getting engage in conversations about footy. With that said, slight biasedness might be present if we are talking about Chelsea FC. Hope to see the world with my own pair of eyes in the future instead of viewing it through Instagram or Snapchat filters.
