“Overwatch 2” players will be able to unlock “Cowboy Bebop”-inspired skins, emotes, highlight intros and more for some of the game’s most recognizable characters on March 12.

Unlockable skins include the Spike Spiegel Cassidy, Faye Valentine Ashe, Jet Black Mauga, Ed Sombra and Ein Wreckingball, the latter of which all players can unlock for free. The skins will be revealed to players on the eve of the event going live in-game March 11.

Music from “Cowboy Bebop “will also be featured in “Overwatch 2” as part of this event.

“We’re honored to be collaborating with one of the most respected anime series of all time in ‘Cowboy Bebop,’” says Aimee Dennett, associate director, “Overwatch 2.” “This collaboration is a wonderful way to pay homage to the legendary stories, art, animation and music of the ‘Cowboy Bebop’ series. We hope its fans and our players have as much fun with what we’re bringing to ‘Overwatch 2’ as we did in creating it.” 

The “Cowboy Bebop” collaboration is the next step in the game’s burgeoning space outside the Overwatch universe – including forays into music and fashion – and is the franchise’s second collaboration with a popular anime series. Fans looking to relive the action can now stream “Cowboy Bebop” on Crunchyroll in select territories.
