New Overwatch Short Tells The Tale of Genji and Hanzo


Dragons” tells us a bit about Overwatch‘s two Japanese heroes: Hanzo and Genji.

Overwatch, coming May 24, doesn’t have any sort of singleplayer mode (besides bot matches), so Blizzard is trying its best to tell the story of the game via other media, including comics, text, and of course, animated shorts. The first of these told us a bit about Winston and Reaper, while the second one focused on Widowmaker, Tracer, and of course Tracer’s sexy poses.

This time around, “Dragons” focuses on Hanzo and Genji. Fans of the game may have noticed the similarities between the two: both are Japanese, and both have “dragon” themed ultimates. Well as it turns out, the two are brothers, and have been engaged in a bitter rivalry their entire lives.

The short gives us a bit of insight into these heroes motivations, as well as having the high-end Blizzard quality we expect from the company’s cinematics.

The game will launch at the end of this month for PC, PS4 and Xbox One.
