Overwatch's Mei is following in the footsteps of Tracer, joining Street Fighter V as a skin for R. Mika.
Made by THEJAMK, who also made the Tracer mod for Cammy, the Mei skin looks solidly made, and accurate too, right down to the Defense character's gigantic snow boots.
According to THEJAMK, many have requested for the Mei mod so they thought, why not give it a try? It's not perfect to the creator yet, but adjustments have been made to accommodate rare gestures from the character, although these are not highly noticeable.
The Mei mod for Street Fighter V can be downloaded over at THEJAMK's Patreon page. If you like what you see, you might want to consider becoming one of the creator's patrons.
THEJAMK also has a Reinhardt skin for Zangief in Street Fighter V. Reinhardt is a Tank character in Overwatch.
Mods are a great way to add "characters" to games but if you're looking for official Street Fighter V content, you won't have to wait long because Ibuki will be arriving at the end of June. The DLC character's coming will also coincide with the release of the game's Story mode.
Ibuki was confirmed to be added to the game post-launch alongside five other characters back in December 2015. She is the third DLC character, coming in after Alex and Guile. Balrog, Juri and Urien will be following suit. Ibuki has always been a mobile character and this will be reflected as well in Street Fighter V.
All six of the DLC characters can be purchased but access to them can also be earned through gameplay.
As for new characters for Overwatch, fans can take comfort in knowing that new heroes are on their way. Just when exactly they will be arriving to the game is not clear, however.
According to Overwatch game director Jeff Kaplan, development stages for heroes vary, with some just getting started while others are very far along.
"I don't think we're at a point where I can really talk openly about the release schedule for the new heroes because I don't want to set expectations and then have something come up and suddenly we're backing out on a ‘promise' we never really made," he said.
In the meantime, the beta version of Overwatch's Competitive Play is now available to PC players.
