Blizzard Entertainment has released many anime over the years in the universe of their popular online video game series, Surveillance.
Now that Overwatch 2 is available in early access for free (on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X/S, Nintendo Switch and PC), Blizzard has released another one and this one is about the new hero of the game .
Kiriko is the newest character to join the roster of colorful heroes and villains available to play as in the Surveillance Games. He is a ninja with a variety of throwables and teleport ability; specifically, the ability to teleport directly to teammates.
As a healer, they can cast “suzu protection” on their teammates to temporarily protect them from any damage. However, Kiriko can also be played offensively as they have throwable damage-dealing kunai at their disposal.
This new animated short, named after the hero in question, revolves around Kiriko protecting a sick grandfather and granddaughter from some intrusive and threatening loan sharks.
“Kanezaka’s protector has struck again. Discover the two sides of Kiriko, the loving daughter and the deadly protector.” As such, many of Kiriko’s aforementioned abilities are showcased in stunningly animated glory.
