Overwatch 2 Kiriko has been revealed officially

Overwatch was one of the most popular FPS video games developed by Blizzard Entertainment ever. It’s no surprise that soon, its sequel will be in our games library, though one could admit astonishment at the time it took to finally release it. Overwatch 2 is set to release on October 4, 2022.

You may be aware that a support hero is released alongside the release of the entire game. It has been officially confirmed that Overwatch 2 Kiriko is this support hero. Despite the name, Kiriko is female, and she has a lot to offer to her team.

Overwatch 2 Kiriko has not just defensive but also offensive measures to take care of her teammates and protect them from danger and allow them to survive.

Before the official confirmation reached us, a cinematic trailer of Overwatch 2 Kiriko was leaked. This datamined gameplay footage gave us the look of Kiriko and also showed us some of her abilities. But, as it turned out, we don’t need this leak anymore.

We have collected all the details that you need to know about the new Overwatch 2 Support hero - Kiriko, including its reveal date, gameplay, kit, weapon, abilities, and more. Check them out below.

The official Twitter account of Overwatch has itself put up new gameplay footage that shows the brand new Overwatch 2 Kiriko hero with all her flair. Take a look at it below.

On September 15th, the devs shared new clips on Kiriko, sharing the story of our new hero fox. The video description says: "Introducing Kiriko. Watch the newest wall climbing, Kunai-wielding support hero in action!"

From the footage, we can see that Kiriko wields Kunai blades in one hand and poker-like cards in the other. Their function has also been apparently revealed by the footage.

Overwatch 2 Kiriko abilities

We have compiled a list of all the skills and abilities of Kiriko below.

The Kunai blades will be the offensive measure, while the cards will be the defensive ones, shielding friends and allies from enemy attacks for some time. Check out the detailed info on Overwatch 2 Kiriko abilities below:

  • Protections Suzu:

With impact, friends nearby will be rendered invulnerable for a while and will be rid of almost all negative effects.

  • Kunai:

As mentioned, this is the offensive measure that Kiriko uses. It’s a thrown projectile that does critical damage.

  • Healing Ofuda:

This ability allows Kiriko to direct a burst of healing talismans that can sniff out particular allies.

  • Swift Step:

With this, Kiriko can teleport anywhere to an ally, walls being no barriers with this one.

  • Kiriko's Passive (Wall Climb)

This is simple. Kiriko jumps up at the walls and scales them.

  • Kiriko's Ultimate (Kitsune Rush):

Kiriko invokes a fox spirit that sprints ahead, propelling the movement, attack speed, and cooldowns of allies that fall in its path.

The skills clearly show the “support” that support hero Kiriko offers her teammates. It seems that Kiriko is going to be one of the fast-paced supports in Overwatch 2. More so than others of her kind. If you can time it correctly, then the Protection Suzu will prove to be life-saving for Kiriko and her allies, protecting against lethal attacks, even Junkrat’s Ultimate Attack.

Overwatch 2 Season 1 starts the same day that the game launches, October 4, 2022. Kiriko is the final new character you will be seeing in the title. Other than her, Sojourn and Junkerqueen are two Overwatch 2 heroes that have already been announced officially.

There’s also the content roadmap of Season 1 that was shared by Blizzard Entertainment. There will be some special skins in the game it seems and also a limited-time event that has been given the appellation Junkerstein’s Revenge.

In total, we can expect six new maps in Season 1 of Overwatch 2. And of course, there will be the classic maps and modes in addition to this. There will also be a new Push mode and improvements to the existing Competitive Mode. Lot’s of stuff to look forward to in this title.
