Video game comedy channel The Salt Factory released an awesome bit of machinima that re-imagines Blizzard’s hit FPS Overwatch as a Final Fantasy style turn based RPG. The video is well put together and deserves a watch!
The film kicks off with the “player” booting up the game to check out Overwatch’s latest event, conveniently runnig only on April Fool’s day. Seems like no small detail was missed, as the mode is complete with various save games, loading screens, and mini-maps, items important to different characters in the franchise. With a little wandering around on the map Route 66, a McCree, Reinhardt, Mercy, and Bastion encounter a strangely tough Roadhog. Players are treated to a lengthy combat sequence based on the Active Time Battle system first introduced in Final Fantasy IV, followed by the traditional XP and loot screen.
