Blizzard’s Overwatch is riding happily on Cloud 9 right now with its amazing reception from fans all over the world. With well-received animated shorts, backstory comics, even life-sized figures – if there is one thing for sure, it’s that Overwatch is one of the hottest titles of 2016.
YouTuber Inkling Inkling made a fantastic anime style fan-video showcasing the game in a way that hasn’t been done yet. With a fantastic opening and perfectly stitched clips from the game, this video feels like an actual show and it is making me want more!
The song, the clips from the animated series, the actual actual sequences, the use of actual concept art – this feels authentic and was an exciting experience as both a fan of Overwatch and anime.
Blizzard has already announced their plans to make even more animated shorts based off of their characters after the wildly successful stories of characters like Hanzo and Soldier 76. There is also a full-scaled graphic novel set to drop as well called Overwatch: First Strike.
So what do you geeks think? Are you still on-board with us on this hype train?
