UPDATE 29th June 2016: A modder has done as I'd hoped and put Overwatch's Roadhog into Street Fighter 5.

TheJamk, creator of a number of Street Fighter 5 mods, used Birdie as the basis for Roadhog. You can check out his work in the video, below.

It's a good effort: SF5 Roadhog has his gas mask, his belly tattoo and even his signature move, the chain hook. What a perfect fit!

ORIGINAL STORY 27th June 2016: Modders are doing the inevitable: putting Overwatch characters into Street Fighter 5.

Last week, modder "TheJamk" caught the internet's attention after he used Cammy as the basis for a Tracer mod. Check it out in the video, below. It's a good fit!

Now, we're seeing more Overwatch characters added to Capcom's fighting game.

TheJamk followed up his Tracer mod by using Street Fighter 5's most famous wrestler Zangief to add Reinhardt to the game.

And here's TheJamk again, using R. Mika to create Overwatch's Mei.

And, courtesy of modder Oscar Gunnarsson, we have Karin turned into D.Va.

It won't be long before modders add the entire Overwatch roster to Street Fighter 5. Birdie as Roadhog next please.
