Street Fighter 5 mod puts Overwatch's Sombra in the game

I'd play Overwatch vs Capcom.

The inevitable has happened: a Street Fighter 5 mod has made Sombra from Overwatch playable in the game.

THEJAMK, whose Street Fighter 5 mods we've reported on before, re-skinned Street Fighter 5's Laura so that she becomes Sombra.

It's a great fit, not least because both characters have similar hairstyles. In fact, when Sombra was announced, some within the fighting game community suggested Blizzard had used Laura as inspiration for her design.

But before we get into a argument about who inspired who, it's worth pointing out that Capcom did not of course invent the one-sided undercut hairstyle. We're all friends!

For reference, here's how Sombra looks in Overwatch:

Here's THEJAMK on the mod:

This isn't even the first time an Overwatch character has been put into Street Fighter 5. TheJamk used Birdie as the basis for Roadhog.

He used Cammy as the basis for a Tracer mod.

Here's Zangief as Reinhardt.

R. Mika as Mei.

And Karin turned into D.Va.

The whole thing sparks a thought: Overwatch vs Capcom, please!
