Blizzard Entertainment has announced that Overwatch fans will be able to purchase a new legendary skin for Zenyatta very soon. The skin is available for a limited time and is based off on the Overwatch League pro player, Bang “JJonak” Sung-hyeon. The skin features an octopus on Zenyatta’s head, complete with tentacles, and small baby octopuses around the character’s neck.
The team at Blizzard consulted JJonak to see what type of legendary skin he would want. Since he is a big fan of octopuses, the team got straight to work crafting various different skin designs involving the aquatic creature. The end result is something to behold and, if you like the skin, it will be available for purchase from June 27 until July 14, 2019.
In case you’re unfamiliar with JJonak, he was voted 2018’s MVP in the Overwatch League, and he plays for the competitive team New York Excelsior. He has become a household name among the pro circuit.
