The latest developers to hop onto the Nintendo request train is the Overwatch team. Speaking to IGN, the game’s director Jeff Kaplan, said that Nintendo can have any of the game’s thirty one characters feature in Super Smash Bros Ultimate if they so wish. While it’s unlikely to happen you really never know. Nintendo recently announced it was expanding the roster with more characters coming as paid DLC.
“To the Smash Brothers team, whatever character you want, we love them all. They’re all our babies, you can have any single one of them. We have 31 to choose from.”
“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.”
Wes Yanagi, the principal game producer on the Switch version of Overwatch, echoed the choice of Tracer, but also said he’d really like to see Winston make the leap to Smash.
