The Cowboy Bebop collaboration will feature paid and free skins based on the lead characters of the iconic anime series. For the paid skins, Cassidy will receive a Spike Spiegel skin, Ashe will receive a Fay Valentine skin, Mauga will receive a Jet Black skin, and Sombra will receive an Ed skin. Overwatch 2 players will be able to obtain Wrecking Ball’s Ein skin for free by earning it in-game. Alongside the skins, players will also obtain special emotes and highlight intros based on Cowboy Bebop.

The Overwatch 2 x Cowboy Bebop collaboration trailer can be viewed below and shows off the upcoming skins while replicating the iconic opening to the anime:

Overwatch 2 previously had a special collaboration with One Punch Man in February 2023 during Overwatch 2’s Season 3, featuring Doomfist as Saitama, Genji as Genos, Kiriko as Terrible Tornado, and Soldier 76 as Mumen Rider. Doomfist’s Saitama skin, Genji’s Genos skin, and Kiriko’s Terrible Tornado skin were paid skins that could be obtained from the shop, while Soldier 76’s Mumen Rider skin was free and could be earned by playing through the season. The One Punch Man collaboration was the first of its kind in Overwatch 2, which set the stage for future collaborations like the upcoming Cowboy Bebop collaboration starting next week.

Overwatch 2 is available to play for free on the PS4, PS5, Xbox Series X, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, and Windows PC. The Cowboy Bebop collaboration is set to begin on March 12, 2024.
