Overwatch’s official YouTube channel uploaded a video on Mar 7, 2024, officially announcing Overwatch 2’s collab with the iconic anime franchise, Cowboy Bebop. The collab is set to go live on all platforms on Mar 12, 2024, where players will get access to Cowboy Bebop themed skins, emotes, intros, and more!

The unlockable legendary skins include Spike Spiegel as Cassidy, Faye Valentine as Ashe, Jet Black as Mauga, Ed as Sombra, while the adorable corgi Ein gets a Wreckingball skin.

The Ein skin will be accessible to all individuals as a complimentary unlock, and all skins will be unveiled on March 11, immediately preceding the in-game release.

On Mar 7, 2024, Overwatch 2’s collab with One Punch Man also went live, which is the gaming franchise’s first major crossover.

Overwatch 2 is available on PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, Nintendo Switch and PC.

About Cowboy Bebop:

Cowboy Bebop is a Japanese neo-noir space Western anime television series which aired on TV Tokyo and Wowow from 1998 to 1999. It was created and animated by Sunrise, led by a production team of director Shinichirō Watanabe and screenwriter Keiko Nobumoto.

The series went for 26 anime original episodes.

Crunchyroll describes the overall plot of Cowboy Bebop as follows:

The Bebop crew is just trying to make a buck. This motley lot of intergalactic loners teams up to track down fugitives and turn them in for cold hard cash. Spike is a hero whose cool façade hides a dark and deadly past. The pilot Jet is a bruiser of a brute who can’t wait to collect the next bounty. Faye Valentine is a femme fatale prone to breaking hearts and separating fools from their money. Along for the ride are the brilliant, but weird, hacker Ed and a super-genius Welsh Corgi named Ein.
