Overwatch Match Featuring Genji Gives Us a Taste of His Skills

Are you fan of ninjas? How about cybernetic ninjas? Blizzard's highly-anticipated sci-fi shooter Overwatch has a cast of highly diverse characters with different skill sets, and this video showcases Genji, a highly mobile katana-wielder. This video was put together by IGN, and encompasses a whole Overwatch match from the perspective of the robotic ninja.

In the video, we can see Genji running around the map, chucking shuriken at enemies and unleashing his sword when opponents get too close. This character seems like a great pick for people that like to pick off enemies from hard-to-reach places, or get up close and eviscerate people with the katana. The bullet-deflection ability looks amazing ,and has an awesome anime-like animation, though it's unclear how good your reflexes will need to be to pull it off. Similarly, I'm not sure how the controls for the epic dragon-sword attack will work, but it looks like the person in this video got the hang of it.

After watching this video, I'm even more excited to get my hands on Overwatch, and I'll definitely be spending some time playing as Genji. Take a look at the gameplay video below!
