Get one step closer to that completed Genji cosplay with Blizzard‘s official Overwatch Ultimate Genji Sword. The item costs $200, can be preordered now, and ships on December 15, 2018.

The Ultimate Genji sword seems well constructed and features all the expected details. After all, who better to craft this than Blizzard themselves? In addition to the visual accuracy, the sword also glows, thanks to LED illumination. Motion-sensing sound effects will help your theatrics comes to life. You can even hear the “Ryūjin no ken o kurae!” line from Genji’s ultimate.

Here is a video from Blizzard showing it off.

The sword is limited to ten per customer, which seems oddly specific. Here’s an up-close and personal look at the blade and its specifications, according to the official website:
