Fan project turns Overwatch into a fighting game

Test your might!

Overwatch has become a staple in competitive gaming, so, it's no surprise that plenty of fans might wonder how the heroes of Overwatch might fare in a different competitive scene.

No, this isn't the Overwatch kart racer we've all been clamoring for, but the folks over at TGN saw fit to put together a video showcasing what Overwatch could be like as a fighting game. 

The video below shows off two fights. Reinhardt versus Zarya and Doomfist versus Genji. All four heroes seem to retain their abilities from the main game and they make for surprisingly effective fighting game characters. 

Reinhardt even shows off a Mortal Kombat style finisher and Doomfist makes his way to a bonus stage Street Fighter fans might find familiar.
