Ever wondered what Overwatch would look like if it were a classic fighting game? Wonder no more.

Overwatch has been given a makeover by TGN, and it looks like a classic, 2D fighting game you’d play down the local arcade.

It’s a homage to games like Street Fighter and Mortal Kombat, cabinets of which graced not only arcades, but the local pizza parlor, Taco Tico, and grocery stores back in the day.

The gameplay you see in the video was recorded in Overwatch with additional FX work done in After Effects.

TGN makes Overwatch videos for YouTube with creators covering varied topics on the game. These topics range from “facts about Overwatch, to speculation and theories about Overwatch lore,” and community creations and opinions.

According to the channel description, TGN was founded and is currently operated by gaming content creators.
