Earlier this month, Blizzard made an announcement that Overwatch would soon be heading over to the Nintendo Switch. And while this has certainly made most Nintendo Switch fans happy, the Super Smash Bros. Ultimate community is still looking forward to a potential inclusion of some Overwatch heroes in the game.

There is no denying that the biggest game right now on Nintendo Switch is none other than Super Smash Bros. Ultimate. Considering the success it has accumulated since launch, it only makes sense for Blizzard to take into account the possibility of bringing some Overwatch heroes to the fight.

Interestingly, the Super Smash Bros. Ultimate community might have just found an ally in Overwatch’s very own Principal Game Producer Wes Yanagi. In an interview, he revealed his interest towards the idea and that it is something he believes is “awesome.”

"As a player and big fan of [Smash], I think that would be awesome," he said. "It would be an honor if Nintendo chose to bring one of our characters into Smash Bros."

During Nintendo's September Direct, the company revealed that after the initial Fighters Pass, they will be releasing more DLC fighters for Super Smash Bros. Ultimate. While it remains unofficial, there is a possibility that some heroes from Overwatch could be included. As of this writing, there is no leak or rumor suggesting as such, so don't even slightly consider this as a fact. Of course, it is no secret that if Blizzard and Nintend could pull this off, it would be incredible.

Speaking of the Smash Bros. Ultimate Fighters Pass, there are five DLC characters included. Three of these are Joker, Hero, and Banjo & Kazooie – and all of them have already been released. The next will be Fatal Fury's Terry Bogard, with one more unnamed character to arrive later in the Pass.
