This Tuesday, February 14, is Valentine’s Day, and the team at Overwatch 2 from Blizzard Entertainment has decided to celebrate in a humorous, yet dedicated way. They have created, in collaboration with other studios, a dating sim which allows them to have dates with Genji and Mercy, following the advice of Hanzo, who acts as Cupid. You can play for free (in Spanish from Mexico) through this website, although the company advises that only through desktop browsers, so they do not ensure their compatibility on mobile phones and tablets. It is available until February 28.
Loverwatch: Love never dies is a free visual novel that follows the structure of the dating sim classics, allowing players dating Genji or Mercy in local bars and restaurants on different maps of the hero shooter with the aim of winning their hearts, something that a particular Cupid will help: Hanzo. there is even a secret ending.
Blizzard defines storytelling as a history of “Overwatch 2 official, but not canon”. The Californian study explains that “there are parts of the history of Overwatch that are real and other parts that are hypothetical […] this dating sim It’s one of those non-canon hypothetical stories.”
The ultimate Valentine’s event is just around the corner and love is already in the air. Time modes, a dating sim (yes, that’s no joke), and of course, Hanzo Cupid. 💘
