Lifeweaver is about to blossom 🌸
— Overwatch (@PlayOverwatch) April 3, 2023
While we don’t know much about Lifeweaver just yet, we can get a glimpse of him in his unveiling screenshot. Despite their popularity in Japan, cherry blossoms originated in the areas surrounding the Himalayas.
His appearance and attire are appropriate for the setting, which is reminiscent of temples in Thailand, one of the countries that border the Himalayas. Players of Overwatch 2 may make an interesting connection with Symmetra, especially given the aesthetic similarities between her hard light technology and his holographic cherry blossom, and the country’s proximity to India.
