We've seen the heroes of Overwatch turned into many things by fans since the game's release, including Pokémon. But why stop at fictional creatures when you can turn the cast into adorable kittens? A couple of fans have done just that, with one artist named Suzuran drawing every hero as a cuddly cat, and a dedicated 3D animator named Dillon Gu who recreated each of the offensive heroes' personalities in a 3D animation. You can check out both of these after the jump!

The good folks at Playtonic Games are no strangers to quirky and inspired multiplayer modes. Without them, Banjo-Tooie, Conker's Bad Fur Day, and even the legendary Goldeneye would not have been quite so memorable when enjoyed with friends. So, with Yooka-Laylee's launch just a few months away, it really comes as no surprise that Playtonic has announced eight different multiplayer modes in that will accompany the single player campaign, all "designed" by the lonely, video game-obsessed dinosaur named Rextro.

During last week's Nintendo Switch Treehouse stream, we learned a lot more details about The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild. One of the main focuses of the demo was the wild horses that you come across in the game. When you encounter these horses, you can tame then and keep them at stables across the world. It'll cost you a few rupees to register your horse at a stable, but once you do, you can find a lost horse from any stable.

Many Zelda fans are curious about Breath of the Wild's story and timeline placement. While Nintendo has been very quiet about the overall story, it seems a group of dedicated translators have uncovered the game's premise. This has been discovered by taking the Hylian text from the tapestry that comes with the Special Edition of the game and translating it into Japanese and then again into English. This information was posted in a video on Zeltik's YouTube channel.

Vince Weaver, an assistant Computing Engineering professor at the University of Maine, has recreated Valve's Portal on an Apple II, an 8-bit computer that was released over 39 years ago. Weaver's recreation of the game is extremely basic; Chell's movement is slow and methodical, and the graphics are very simple. However, the reboot still captures the charm of the original Portal, with the same basic mechanics, a large number of interesting puzzles, and the same cruel, sarcastic humor, with GlaDOS narrating most of the experience.

Though I missed taking part in Overwatch's Halloween event, I was able to get a healthy (or maybe not) amount of time logged during the Winter Wonderland event last month. I had a ton of fun blasting my opponents with snowballs, so I've been anxiously awaiting word about when another special event would kick off. I and other Overwatch fans won't have to wait but a few more days, however, as Blizzard has teased the Year of the Rooster event celebrating the Chinese New Year.

We don't know exactly what Blizzard has in store for us, but they have provided a few teases. Head inside to find out more!

Nintendo has just revealed Fire Emblem Echoes: Shadows of Valentia, an entirely new Fire Emblem game that is coming to Nintendo 3DS on May 19th, 2017. This new game was inspired by Fire Emblem Gaiden, the second entry in the Fire Emblem series, which is known for its unique gameplay and focus on exploration. Shadows of Valentia will be a reimagining of Fire Emblem Gaiden, but on a much larger scale, with larger dungeons, a larger overworld, and a more ambitious story.

Hot off the heels from today's Fire Emblem Direct, viewers were given another look at the upcoming Fire Emblem Warriors. The extended trailer features Prince Chrom of Ylisse from Fire Emblem Awakening as he takes on an army of Plegian soldiers in traditional Dynasty Warriors-style combat.

The trailer confirms that the game will launch in Fall 2017, but you won't need to own the Nintendo Switch in order to play. Similar to the preceding Hyrule Warriors, Fire Emblem Warriors is releasing simultaneously on both the Switch and New Nintendo 3DS systems.

Modding communities certainly like to do weird things with video games. It has not even been one week since its announcement, and Super Mario Odyssey's reveal trailer has already been reasonably accurately recreated within the confines of Liberty City in Grand Theft Auto IV. Okay, maybe accurate is the wrong word to use for what YouTuber CrowbCat has created, but it is definitely a pretty entertaining video to watch regardless of that fact.
