Link is ready to fight off Blackwatch in this incredibly awesome Legend of Zelda x Overwatch fan-made trailer. Fan-driven designs are nothing new, but they are an incredible way for popular fandoms to put their own creative twists on the titles they love. In this case, it’s the blending of Blizzard’s shooter with Nintendo’s iconic Legend of Zelda franchise and you know what? It just works!
The video below is only a minute long but it’s jam-packed with glory ready to be won. Plus, Link just looks badass in Overwatch’s graphics and we could see him being a pretty awesome counter to more than a few heroes that are currently on the Overwatch roster. Check it out for yourself:
With Blizzard’s Overwatch being a smash hit since its release a few years ago, the FPS continues to gain a larger and larger following. This is in no small part due to the frequent rotation of events and new items to earn that help keep the gameplay experience fresh. The team over at Blizzard have treated this game with all of the care that they are known for, just as Nintendo has done with the Legend of Zelda. Because of that passion and attention to detail, this is one crossover that makes more sense than we ever thought possible despite the two games’ obvious differences.
Plus, both franchises are represented on Nintendo’s hybrid console, which makes it even cooler!
While Link isn’t an official part of the game (sad, we know), at least Blizzard fans have Overwatch on the Nintendo Switch to look forward to on October 15th!
