Fan’s Mod Brings Overwatch’s Tracer To Street Fighter V

One 3D artist online has just released a mod for Street Fighter V that brings Tracer, the public face of Overwatch, to the fighting ring. Though she doesn’t have her own unique set of moves, the model is an almost spot-on recreation of Tracer.

THEJAMK recently started a Patreon page to collect donations as they make custom skins for characters in Street Fighter V. They uploaded a video of Tracer in action, which you can see below.

THEJAMK’s previous work includes bringing The Flash and Spider-Gwen to the game. Tracer is a skin for Cammy, meaning she retains the moveset and voice lines of that character. Anyone can download the mod for the PC version of Street Fighter V from the page, and bring Tracer to their game at no cost.

Our Take
While fan creations and projects like this are always cool to see, we’re not exactly sure how legal it is. Mods for PC games are usually allowed to get as unique as they want, but since this artist is accepting money for characters they don’t own, we wouldn’t be surprised if these costumes were taken down once they gain more attention.

Yomowari: Night Alone Brings Frightening Creatures to Vita and PC This October

Yomowari: Night Alone is getting a global release just in time for Halloween. The latest title from NIS America is equally cute and terrifying.

When your sister and dog go missing, you'll be forced to face an entire town alone in a quest to find them. As the announcement trailer below tells you, things change drastically at night, and some rather frightening creatures seem to be haunting the area.

(Please visit the site to view this media)

Unique aesthetics and music are featured in this first look at Yomowari: Night Alone, and the premise is certainly intriguing. The game clearly borrows a lot from Japanese culture and folklore, with a good look at a Torii gate and multiple spirits. We aren't given the best idea of how gameplay will work, but it seems that there will be a good amount of exploration and finding clues.

The game comes to Steam on October 25, with a physical release on PS Vita the same day. Additional goodies in the physical version include a heat changing tumbler, art book, and soundtrack.

Bandai Namco Brings Pac-Man 256 To Consoles and PC

If you missed the latest mobile Pac-Man adventure, you'll have a chance to play this Summer on consoles and Steam. The endless maze runner Pac-Man 256 will debut on PS4, Xbox One, and PC this June.

Pac-Man 256 debuted on mobile phones and tablets last August, bringing the classic gameplay and mazes to an all new platform. To celebrate the birthday of the titular hero, Bandai Namco announced today that the mobile game developed by Hipster Whale and 3 Sprockets will finally be headed to consoles and PC this summer.

(Please visit the site to view this media)

The game launches on June 21 with all the
features from the original mobile release as well as a brand-new local
multiplayer mode for up to four players. Players will have to work
together to conquer the ghostly enemies from the original 1980 arcade
game.

The gameplay of Pac-Man 256 was inspired by the glitched final level in the original arcade version that would bring up a kill-screen ending the player's progress. There are plenty of Pac-Dots and Power Pellets to be consumed, and each run-through of the course will unlock new power-ups and abilities.

Additionally, in-app purchases like the Coin Doubler on the mobile version of the game will be discounted from May 19 to May 27 in celebration of Pac-Man's birthday.
