Overwatch 2 will get its first crossover collaboration, as part of the game’s third season. The game will add new cosmetics inspired by One Punch Man, the superhero manga about a bored hero who can defeat his enemies with a single punch. The first content to come from that collab is a skin for Doomfist inspired by the star of One Punch Man, Saitama.

The One Punch Man crossover event in Overwatch 2 will run from March 7 to April 6, and Blizzard said it will include multiple skins and a custom loading screen. Details about the collaboration are still mostly under wraps, and Blizzard promises to reveal more as season 3 — which kicks off Tuesday — rolls out.

One Punch Man is the Overwatch franchise’s second major external skin collaboration. Back in 2019, Blizzard and The Lego Group teamed up to bring a Lego-themed Bastion skin and in-game challenge to the original Overwatch.

In addition to a new map, a Valentine’s Day-themed event, and Saitama Doomfist, here’s everything else coming in Overwatch 2 season 3.
