Overexpected 2 gets its first major crossover with the anime and manga One Punch Man on March 7. Previously announced in February as part of Season 3 of Overlook 2with the reveal of a Saitama-inspired skin for Doomfist, Blizzard Entertainment has now revealed the second skin coming as part of that collaboration: Kiriko, dressed as Terrible Tornado.
The Legendary Terrible Tornado skin for Kiriko will be sold as part of a bundle costing 2,100 Overwatch Coins; it also includes the Terribly Impressive Victory Pose (seen above) and the Terrible Tornado name card, Blizzard revealed on Xbox thread.
Overwatch art director Dion Rogers told Xbox Wire that the game’s approach to integrate One Punch Man in his world is literal cosplay. “That’s our approach; that our heroes basically know about the anime and are also fans,” Rogers said. And they cosplay as the heroes. So if you see Doomfist wearing the Saitama outfit, he’s a fan too.”
Here’s another look at Terrible Tornado Kiriko, her pose and name tag.
Overlook 2The One-Punch Man Collaboration will be available in-game from March 7 to April 6. Blizzard said it will include multiple skins and a custom loading screen.
One Punch Man is the second major third-party skin collaboration from the Overwatch franchise. In 2019, Blizzard and The Lego Group teamed up to bring a Lego-themed Bastion skin and an in-game challenge to the original Overexpected.
Overlook 2 Season 3 began on February 7 and is expected to run through mid-April. The season includes another special event, PachiMarchi, which kicks off on March 21.
