Blizzard Pulls No Punches With Overwatch 2 Anime Collab

One punch is all he needs.

Overwatch 2 Saitama Doomfist Skin

Overwatch 2 is well known for making a lot of high-quality skins, from their basic legendaries on most characters to the Blizzard IP collab they did a while ago. Each skin generally has a ton of thought put into it, as was shown with the mythic skins for both Genji and Junker Queen. Today, Blizzard’s brought its high level of skin detail into the latest skin for Doomfist, bringing Overwatch 2 its first anime collaboration.

One Punch is All You Need in Overwatch 2

For the first-ever collab in Overwatch 2, Blizzard’s decided to go the very direct route with Saitama Doomfist, designed after everyone’s favorite One Punch Man Saitama. Sporting the hero’s iconic red boots & gloves, yellow suit, and white cape, Doomfist has become everyone’s favorite Caped Baldy (only not so heroic this time). The new skin will release with Season 3 of Overwatch 2, which begins tomorrow, February 7.

That isn’t all, though. Blizzard has promised a ton more One Punch Man collaboration skins and a custom loading screen across Season 3. What could these skins entail, you may ask? Your guess is as good as ours. Kamikaze Genji? Metal Knight Reinhardt? Pig God Roadhog? Who knows. I’m sure they’ll make even more sense once revealed, one way or another.

With Blizzard finally stepping into the realm of IP collaborations with other companies, there are tons more possibilities for skins relating to other games and shows. Imagine the possibilities of a Pokemon crossover, with Zen getting an Ash Ketchum skin and Pokeballs replacing his orbs. Maybe even a Minecraft skin line with Widowmaker as an enderman of sorts, though perhaps that’s a little too cursed of a thought. If we start talking about these collabs, though, we’ll probably be here all day.
