More Overwatch Content Comes to Heroes of the Storm

Heroes of the Storm Adds Overwatch's Genji and Hanamura Map

Genji is not the only Overwatch related item to be added to Heroes of the Storm here though, as the game is getting its first Overwatch inspired map with Hanamura.

The Heroes of the Storm PTR will be updated later today to bring the newest hero and map to the Nexus. Genji officially arrives in Heroes of the Storm on April 25. It'll be the very first update to add any Overwatch Map to the game. Genji can dash, throw shurikens, deflect, and summon his legendary dragon blade to wreak havoc on his foes.

The hero can attack with shruikens and a dashing swift strike, and can also deflect enemy projectiles back at those who launched them. Heroes on each team will do their best to deliver their respective payloads (meaning there's two in this version rather than one like Overwatch). Genji, on the other hand, will be just like he is in "Overwatch" including all of his core abilities, leap, unique way of tossing shuriken and summon the Dragonblade to do a big damage.
