Following its recent reveal, the Overwatch 2 x One-Punch Man collaboration is now live, and it adds four new skins to the game.
This collab is significant for Overwatch as it marks the first time that the game has collaborated with another well-known IP on this scale. While we’ve seen a LEGO Overwatch skin along with other Blizzard games, this is the first anime crossover for the game.
As is the highlight of any collab, the crossover features four skins, three of which you can buy on the in-game shop while another can be earned by completing challenges.
Here’s a quick rundown of what you can expect in the collab via the official trailer:
Specifically, four characters get One-Punch Man character costumes. But unlike collabs in Fortnite for example, these skins don’t fully transform the heroes. Instead, Blizzard said that you can think of these skins as the characters in cosplay, confirming that One-Punch Man is a popular series within the world of Overwatch.
Meanwhile, here are the four skins that are part of Overwatch 2’s first ever major crossover:
First is a Saitama skin for Doomfist which makes perfect sense given Doomfist’s abilities (and lack of hair). While you won’t be able to beat enemies in-game with a single punch, you can at least rep your favorite shonen hero in his iconic red-and-yellows suit.
Next, we have the Genos skin for Genji. While Genji and Doomfist may not be close like Genos and Saitama are, Genji and Genos are the perfect match given their cybernetically-enhanced bodies.
Third is the Tatsumaki skin for Kiriko. Tatsumaki’s outfit is a nice match for Kiriko’s style, and Kiriko’s powers also look quite nice with a green hue.
Finally, we have the Mumen Rider skin for Soldier: 76. As a fan-favorite, this Mumen Rider skin is something that One-Punch Man fans will likely want to get. Thankfully, you won’t have to spend a cent as this skin can be claimed by completing event challenges.
The One-Punch Man skins will be available via the in-game shop until April 6, 2023.
With this new collab, it’s likely that we’ll see even more crossovers between Overwatch 2 and anime soon.
