Blizzard has released the latest short for its highly anticipated team-based multiplayer shooter, Overwatch. This is the third CGI animated film they've premiered and it focuses on the complicated past of two of the game's heroes, Hanzo and Genji. Entitled "Dragons," this little short adds a surprising degree of depth to Hanzo, the co-head of the Shimada clan, and Genji, his rival.

Hanzo & Genji Star In Blizzard's Latest Animated Short For Overwatch, 'Dragons'

Well, that was epic. Anyone else get chills when they unleashed their ultimates? Well I sure did! And here are some of the other responses that Overwatch fans had:

  • "Has it really only been six days since the beta ended? Geez it has felt like 2 whole years for me... I need to play again so badly or I might not make it to the actual release."
  • "And then bastion shoots both of them dead to get play of the game."
  • "You still have a purpose, Hanzo... to guard the payload and stay inside circle..."
  • "Who's ready to rewatch this for the 11th time?"
  • "8 minutes that I didn't have to suffer Overwatch withdrawal!"
  • "Hanzo is bae :D"
  • "Roses are red, Violets are Blue, RYUU GA WAGA TEKI WO KURAU!"
  • "Watched it so many times.... That i guess you can say... I overwatched it"

All of these are more than appropriate. Care for some screenshots?
