Overwatch 2’s One-Punch Man collaboration event goes live tomorrow, with a new trailer also premiering. Doomfist is already confirmed to receive a Saitama skin, while Soldier 76 gets a Mumen Rider skin (available for free to all players). Kiriko is the third hero to receive a skin, and it’s none other than Tatsumaki, aka Terrible Tornado.
The Legendary skin is included in a bundle costing 2100 Overwatch Coins, which also features the Terribly Impressive victory pose and Terrible Tornado name card. Speaking to Xbox Wire, art director Dion Rogers also explained how One-Punch Man is crossing over with Overwatch 2. Long story short, everyone is cosplaying.
“That’s our approach; that our heroes are basically aware of the anime and are fans too. And they’re cosplaying as the heroes. So when you see Doomfist wearing the Saitama outfit, he’s a fan too.” With heroes running around with Halloween, Christmas, and other assorted outfits, cosplaying is perhaps the most rational explanation yet.
Overwatch 2 x One-Punch Man is available from March 7th to April 6th. Stay tuned for more details, including a potential mid-season balance patch that should adjust various heroes.
