Overwatch gets Persona 5 makeover in incredible crossover video

Persona 5 is well-known for its stunning visual style of bright reds and cold blacks along with its dynamite soundtrack. As it turns out, the same style works quite well when applied to Overwatch.

YouTuber orphidia uploaded a video to the platform on November 19 showing off Overwatch mashed-up with the flare of Persona and the result is incredible.

Played alongside the song “Life Will Change” from the Persona 5 soundtrack, the video takes Overwatch heroes and highlights but plops them into the RPG’s universe.

One of the opening shots features a white silhouette of Genji running forward similar to the Persona protagonist Joker. The screen then changes to a close up of McCree and then numerous shots of multiple heroes from the Blizzard FPS.

What makes it so incredible is how much attention to detail there is on every single frame of animation.

Arguably the best part pops up 18 seconds in with McCree’s character showing off numerous action choices, replicating the gameplay of Atlus’ RPG.

It was clear that a lot of time and effort went into crafting this montage as a special treat for both Overwatch and Persona fans.

Of course, neither series is a stranger to crossovers. Blizzard has regularly included skins based on its other games for characters in Overwatch such as Widowmaker Kerrigan paying homage to StarCraft.

Persona’s Joker meanwhile was the first DLC fighter in Super Smash Bros Ultimate and has become one of if not the most dominant character in the title, being mained by the likes of MKLeo – the world’s best player.

Fan-based crossovers are also incredibly popular. Early in November, Akshon esports reimagined Overwatch as a Dark Souls game with some eerily well-crafted Machinima.

The sky is the limit when it comes to creativity nowadays and it’ll be fun to see what YouTubers like orphidia work on next.

If it’s anything like the Persona video, it’s safe to say we’ll be in for a treat.

An Overwatch racing game might not be all too far off now as a stylish new Workshop mode places heroes behind the wheel, allowing you to drive through any given map.

Driving a car is now possible in Overwatch thanks to the power of the Workshop. Players have modded their own custom vehicle into existence, allowing you to take it for a spin and drift through the game.

It’s not a simple trick that lets your hero move faster than usual. It’s a proper vehicle design that you can take control of and drive around. 

In fact, it’s modeled after the Lamborghini Aventador SV, giving you some style and some speed as you cruise through the world of Overwatch.

Ever wanted to drive a Lambo? Now you can… in Overwatch.

“I’ve turned Overwatch into a Streetwatch,” GraczCourier’s Gaming revealed on January 21. While it might look a little different to what you had in mind, it functions better than perhaps any Workshop vehicle to date.

A collection of pipes and electricity effects bring the template of the car to life. Players have complete control over the direction of the Lambo, along with its speed as well.

You can drift around corners, activate nitrous, and even change the radio station while you’re in the driver’s seat. Not only that, but the custom mode appears to work across every map in the game.

This means you can boost through Hanamura, take in the sights of Blizzard World, or jet around London on King’s Row. Handling looks to be extremely precise as an accompanying video showcased just what’s possible with the Aventador in Overwatch.

While it’s a blast to drive around, there’s a unique challenge to it as well. How fast can you get through your favorite map? How long can you drift in one attempt? You and your teammates can put it all to the test.

The flashy Workshop mode is available for anyone to check out in-game now. Try it out for yourself with the following Workshop code: 4XQP4
