Overwatch 2 and Cowboy Bebop couldn’t be any more different than if they’d tried. The former is the sequel to one of the most successful and critically acclaimed hero shooter games in history. The latter is one of the most successful and critically acclaimed sci-fi anime series in history. Admittedly, there are some similarities there, but that’s about the end of it. Especially since, well, this sequel game doesn’t have as warm a reception as the first game did.

Still, it does look like Blizzard Entertainment want to do something about that frosty initial reception Overwatch 2 got. How else do you explain them wanting to do a crossover collaboration with the aforementioned Cowboy Bebop? Don’t believe me? Then why not check out the trailer for that collaboration below, and see what kind of crossover zaniness will happen in this collab for yourself?

Overwatch 2 x Cowboy Bebop Collaboration: Details

Ah, that sweet jazzy sound of anime nostalgia.

Blizzard Entertainment (via sites like Crunchyroll) is proud to announce a new Overwatch 2 anime collaboration. This time, instead of One-Punch Man, we have Cowboy Bebop. What will this collaboration consist of, you might ask? Well, according to Crunchyroll: this collab will include “themed skins, emotes, intros, and more”. These themed skins will include Spike Spiegel Cassidy, Faye Valentine Ashe, Jet Black Mauga, Ed Sombra, and Ein Wreckingball. Alas, the only free skin will be the Ein Wreckingball skin. All the others will require you to pay up for them. The details are still murky on them though, simply because this collab hasn’t launched yet.

Fortunately, that’s about to change soon. This Overwatch 2 x Cowboy Bebop collab will go live on March 12, 2024. In fact, all of the skins will be revealed the day before as a preview for the event. All you have to do is wait until then, and you can then find out just how the game will carry out this bounty hunting session.

But if you have a hankering for that classic Cowboy Bebop anime? Then you can watch the entire series on Crunchyroll, Hulu, or Amazon Prime Video.
