Next month, Overwatch will be joining the pantheon of great Nintendo Switch blockbusters like The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild – and it looks like some fans are now getting creative.
Recently, Vimeo user Stéphane Videlo posted an amazing fan-made trailer that re-imagines Nintendo character Link as a playable character in Overwatch! Besides featuring the Hero of Hyrule with futuristic gear, the animation reel also includes some fun nods to Link’s history – such as him using a spin slash and opening up chests enthusiastically.
Check it out for yourself below, along with a list of all the amazing artists who poured their sweat and tears into the project.
“It’s dangerous to go alone! Take this.”
This video is a fanmade trailer.
