The Kkachi Echo skin was revealed on Wednesday, a day before the launch of the Overwatch Lunar New Year event. Starting on Feb. 4. players will be able to celebrate the Year of the Ox and enjoy new cosmetics and gameplay. A Kkachi is a Korean overcoat usually worn by children to celebrate New Year's Day in the Lunar calendar.

It basically translates to magpie's overcoat, hence the feathers and bird features in Echo's new skin.

As with previous calendar events, Blizzard slowly reveals a few of the skins, before the launch of the event. And as is tradition, players will have an opportunity to unlock three epic skins, one for each week. Players will simply need to play the game, earn some wins, and they'll receive a new skin each week.

Overwatch's Lunar New Year event lasts through Feb. 25.
