Overwatch 2 Reveals New Healing Ninja Kiriko, Summons a Spectral Fox

Overwatch 2 has revealed its latest addition to the hero roster, Kiriko. The character was subject to widespread leaks, earlier this week, and is now revealed to be a support/ healing ninja, with ties to existing heroes, Genji and Hanzo. Blizzard Entertainment dropped a gameplay trailer, highlighting her kit and ultimate ability, which summons a spirit fox named Kitsune. Overwatch 2 launches October 4, on PS5, PS4, Xbox Series S/X, Xbox One, and PC.

Kiriko is a support-type character, who blurs the line between DPS and healer — akin to Baptiste at launch. As someone who trained alongside the Shimada brothers, she has mastered the ability to scale walls and navigate in a quick, nimble fashion. Her primary healing ability is the Healing Ofuda, where she throws out a bunch of sacred talismans to restore teammates’ health. Like most support characters in Overwatch 2, players are not required to have the best aiming and tracking skills, as Kiriko’s talismans can easily hone in on her targets. This makes healing fast, erratic characters, such as Wrecking Ball, Genji, and Mercy feel like a breeze.
