An artist has made an awesome Overwatch and Persona crossover by turning mercy into a resident of the Velvet Room.

In the Persona series, the Velvet Room is a room located “between consciousness and subconsciousness” and has been featured in almost every Persona game so far.


Artist FluffyDus decided to make Mercy look like a loyal Velvet Room attendant and the results are pretty impressive.

Blizzard EntertainmentMercy would probably make a great Velvet Room attendant.

“I’ll send you my consultation fee”

Mercy definitely looks the part with a blue dress and some fairy-like wings that would make her right at home in the Velvet Room.


Her staff looks like something out of Persona 5 and like something Dr. Ziegler would have no problem using herself, either.

Even her pistol has been given the Velvet Room treatment, with a gold “V” on the side and a refined, elegant look.

Overwatch isn’t known to do crossover skins, besides with other Blizzard games, of course, but “Velvet Attendant” Mercy would be a great place to start.



A new Baptiste skin in Overwatch

Along with a major June 18 patch, Overwatch also started Baptiste’s Reunion Challenge, which lets players unlock a new icon, sprays and a new Baptiste skin by winning games.

The new Baptiste cosmetics will only be available until the Challenge ends on July 1, so players should be sure to get their wins in before then.

With a new skin and a bunch of hero balance changes to try out, Overwatch players should have plenty to keep them busy for now.

The Overwatch community is rallying behind a 26-year-old player who passed away earlier in October after defending a woman from a man who allegedly broke into her home with a knife.

Tiago de Souza, who reportedly played thousands of hours and mained Hanzo, Pharah, Sigma, McCree and Doomfist, reportedly gave his life to save a friend and her daughters.


According to Brazilian media, Tiago was at the woman’s house when her ex-partner broke in with a knife in-hand, trying to attack her.

Investigators say the suspect beat the woman with punches. When Tiago tried to interfere, he was allegedly stabbed and died on the spot.

The suspect later went to the police station in Prudentópolis on his own accord and was detained.

A petition on the website Avaaz describes Tiago as “very fond of science and questioning the mysteries of the universe.”

“He liked several games, but undoubtedly his passion was Overwatch,” the petition continued, noting how he had unlocked four golden guns for different heroes through competitive play.

Tiago enjoyed playing as Hanzo.

“Tiago was an incredible, selfless and generous person, who gave his life to save someone else’s,” the petition said. “We, friends and family, do not want your courageous attitude to be forgotten, and nothing better to honor you than with a tribute in your favorite game.”

So far, over 2,000 people have signed the petition asking Blizzard to honor the player, though they didn’t specify on how they would like the company to pay tribute to Tiago.

Potentially, if Blizzard were going to honor the player, they could do so on the Brazilian Lucio Ball map for the Summer Games event, or even something from Overwatch 2, whenever that game is released.

Blizzard does have a decent track record of honoring its players. Notably, Blizzard immortalized the streamer Reckful by adding a Rogue Trainer NPC with his gamer tag in World of Warcraft.

Hopefully, Blizzard can continue this trend an honor the Brazilian player.
