Overwatch 2 One Punch Man Release Date


Overwatch 2's first anime collaboration is coming soon. Last month Blizzard announced that Overwatch would be crossing over with the mega popular superhero anime series One Punch Man in Season 3 of Overwatch 2. The new event brings new skins, cosmetics and challenges themed around the series to Overwatch 2. Here's when the Overwatch x One Punch Man event starts.

One Punch Man is an action-comedy series that stars Saitama, a laid-back superhero with the devastating ability to eliminate any enemy with a single punch. Overwatch has referenced the series before: Doomfist's voice line "One punch is all I need," is one, and several sprays mimic the anime's style.

According to a blog post released by Blizzard, the Overwatch X One Punch Man crossover event beings on Mar. 7. It will run for almost an entire month, ending on Apr. 6. This gives players ample opportunity to complete challenge and earn the associated Legendary Skin.

Not only is the One Punch Man event the first anime crossover Overwatch has done, it's also the first crossover in general. Overwatch has referenced anime, film and other games before, leaving one wondering what kind of crossover could be next for Overwatch.
