Overwatch 2 Kiriko’s Animated Short focuses on the mother-daughter relationship, sort of

Every new Overwatch hero comes with animated shorts, and the tradition continues with Overwatch 2’s Kiriko. Kiriko’s 10-minute intro video, which was released during the TwitchCon keynote, features the ninja healer as someone who’s bubbly , but has his own share of worldly problems – in the form of an overbearing but well-meaning mother.

Kiriko is also friends with her apartment complex’s maintenance man and his deaf granddaughter. Kiriko uses sign language to communicate with the girl and later, when the bad guys burst onto the scene, she shows off her healing abilities by healing the grandfather when he is shot by one of the bad guys.
