Overwatch’s Hanzo receives a new Legendary Skin celebrating his Japanese heritage

It’s raining legendary skins over at Overwatch.

Following the trend set by Pharah and Lucio, Hanzo is the newest Overwatch character to get a new legendary skin celebrating his heritage. The new skin is named Kabuki Hanzo and will be available through loot boxes and the hero gallery starting this Tuesday.

Blizzard is starting to downright spoil us with all the fantastic cosmetic skins they’re revealing in anticipation for Overwatch’s upcoming cosmetic patch. The patch is being released this Tuesday, January 23rd and will include over 100 new sprays, player icons, skins, emotes and more.

After yesterday’s Lucio reveal I had assumed Blizzard was with teasers done for the day, as it turns out they weren’t. Check out the newest Hanzo skin via the official Overwatch twitter account.

Kabuki is a form of classical Japanese dance-drama theater, known for the stylized drama and elaborate make-up worn performers. The art has been interpreted as avant-garde and bizarre, yet it has persisted in Japanese culture for more than 400 years and is inscribed on the UNESCO Intangible Cultural Heritage Lists.

Kabuki Hanzo is wearing a flat-top hat, known as a “kasa” and his face and arms are covered in traditional kabuki make-up, colored red and white to represent the Japanese flag. The quiver appears to be a combination of classic and modern themes, while the bow has a very distinct futurist theme.

We’re just two short days away from the newest update and personally I can’t wait to get my hands on Kabuki Hanzo and Asp-Pharah. All the new items will be available in standard Loot Boxes. Be sure to check back with us for more updates on Overwatch.
