This makes perfect sense.
Today, Blizzard just announced that one if its heroes for Overwatch 2 (or villain, depending on your perspective) – Doomfist will be getting its first anime-collaboration with the popular anime One Punch Man in the form of a Saitama cosmetic skin!

From Blizzard’s blog post
“Together we’ve created a collection of cosmetics from the beloved anime, including Saitama skin for Doomfist,” . “We’ll reveal each item before they drop on March 7, with one being a Legendary skin that’s earnable via themed challenges.
Back from Overtwatch 1, I believe that the first collaboration with another brand was for Lego, giving the hero Bastion some blocky aesthetics that looks really cool, though it kinda paints a good target for your opponent because of the bright colors sticking out like a sire thumb.
Overwatch 2’s season three begins today. If you just happen to be a cosmetic collector and just wants to jump in to get Saitama, the collaboration event will run from March 7 to April 6. Stick around for more details on how to get this skin as we push the payload through to Season 3.
