A new animated short starring the newest Overwatch video game character, Kiriko, has been released by Blizzard. Hit the jump to check it out...

Blizzard Entertainment has released many an animated short over the years set in the universe of their popular online video game series, Overwatch.

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 yet another, and this one is all about the game's newest hero.

Kiriko is the latest character to join the roster of colourful heroes and villains available to play as in the Overwatch games. They're a ninja with a variety of throwables and a teleportation ability; specifically, the ability to teleport directly to teammates.

Being a healer, they can throw "protection suzu" at teammates to protect them from any damage temporarily. However, Kiriko can also be played offensively as they have throwable kunai which inflict damage at their disposal.

This new animated short, named after the hero in question, revolves around Kiriko protecting an ailing grandfather and granddaughter from some encroaching and menacing loan sharks.

"The protector of Kanezaka strikes again. Discover the two sides of Kiriko, the loving daughter and the deadly protector." As such, many of Kiriko's aforementioned abilities are shown off in stunningly animated glory.
