An Overwatch hero teaser was found in the new free-for-all map Kanezaka. Another hero tease was also found earlier this week, maybe hinting at the next playable character in the game.

Jeff Kaplan said to look closely at all graffiti for clues and easter eggs. In a post by Reddit, user DoctorDeadeye, they noticed that a certain piece of graffiti had a clue in it and decided to outline the find.

They ended up tracing out the word "yokai" which in the Japanese language usually refers to spirits that take animal form.

The graffiti being of a fox is also essential as a report given by Game Informer Executive Editor Andrew Reiner during BlizzCon 2019. Reiner claimed to silhouettes of four unannounced heroes but one caught his eye in particular.

“The hero that stood out the most, and I couldn’t take my eyes off of, appeared to be a female with short hair. At her side and standing up to her knees was a fuzzy little critter with pointy ears and an equally pointy tail. It looked like a fennec fox, but with longer ears and a more aggressive stance,” Reiner wrote.

Nonetheless, players will learn more by February when Overwatch 2 is expected to be revealed at BlizzCon.
