Update [Wed 8th Mar, 2023 04:25 GMT]:
The One Punch Man Overwatch 2 collaboration is now officially live. This collection of cosmetics includes four cosplay hero skins inspired by Saitama (Doomfist), Genos (Genji), Tatsumaki (Kiriko) and a Muren Rider skin for Soldier 76 (obtainable by completing in-game challenges). These items will be available on the shop until 6th April.
Original story [Tue 7th Feb, 2023 03:54 GMT]:
Overwatch 2 is entering new territory in Season 3 with the announcement of collaborations – similar to what we’ve seen in other free-to-play titles like Fortnite and even the LEGO Bastion skin in the original Overwatch game.
The second game will be kicking things off with a special One Punch Man anime collab. If you’re not familiar with the One Punch Man hero Saitama, he’s basically one of the most OP anime heroes of all time – who can defeat anyone and everything with just a single punch. His outfit in Overwatch 2 is paired with Doomfist.
This season launches on 7th February (that’s today or tomorrow depending on your location). Apart from this new skin, there’ll be new rewards, an all-new battle pass, a new map, new seasonal competitive events, and much more to unlock. Check out the trailer below (you can see the One Punch promo around the minute mark):
Overwatch 2 is a free-to-download title available on the Switch eShop. Will you be giving this event a go? What other collaborations would you like to see in Overwatch 2 in the future? Leave your thoughts in the comments.
