This Final Fantasy-inspired Overwatch fan art is awesome

We've already seen a lot of incredible Overwatch fan art—some featuring neat crossovers and others taking Overwatch's heroines in more salacious directions. And just when I was beginning to think that "Overwatch crossed with…" was beginning to tire, a group of Korean artists have assembled some of my favorite interpretations of Overwatch characters yet.

Overwatch Fantasia is more than just a fantastical reimagining of the heroes and villains of Blizzard's shooter. Much of it is a nod to the work of Japanese artist Yoshitaka Amano who helped cement the artistic vision for earlier Final Fantasy games before FF7 took it in a new direction. As a collaboration of 22 Korean artists, there's plenty of fantastically creative interpretations of different Overwatch characters as iconic Final Fantasy classes.

There's obvious ones, like Mercy being a white mage (who'd have guessed?) or Sombra being a thief. But I particularly enjoy Reaper as a corsair and Mei all dressed up as a time mage. I've collected a few of my favorites in the gallery below, but be sure to head over to the website to check out the full roster.

Steven enjoys nothing more than a long grind, which is precisely why his specialty is on investigative feature reporting on China's PC games scene, weird stories that upset his parents, and MMOs. He's Canadian but can't ice skate. Embarrassing.
