Former Overwatch Lead Concept artist Ben Zhang shares official concept art for D.Va’s Shooting Star video, which features four unused MEKA heroes.
Activision Blizzard continues to add new content to Overwatch, and the addition of Busan teased several MEKA Pilots in addition to D.Va, rocket-launching tank character. Since the release of “Shooting Star” animated cards focusing on D.Va’s background story, official Overwatch concept art has released showing the rest of the MEKA characters and how they may have looked in the game.
Activision Blizzard released Shooting Star in 2018, but formerly Overwatch Leading concept artist Ben Zhang recently showed detailed concept art that was not used in any of the footage from the movie. The art focuses on every other MEKA Pilot than D.Va and shows the unused mechs, all of which have their own distinct look. One mech has a sword and shield, another looks like a Marvel Quinjet, and one shares similarities with Goliath from StarCraft. Like D.Va and her mechanics Tokki, all the pilots have similar looks to their powerful machines except Kyung-Soo and his mechanic, Singijeon.
Ben Zhang left Activision Blizzard back in 2019. The MEKA Pilot concept art shared today was made specifically for the Shooting Star movie and was not intended for gameplay. The art depicts Yuna with Beast, Jae-Eun with La Princesse, Seung-Hwa with Mastermind and Kyung-Soo with Singijeon, and each has its own distinctive look despite the similarity between being mechs with their pilots. Yuna is also known as D.Mon, a nickname that can indicate a similar skill level or simply reflects the character of the thought of both characters.
Beast is a thick red mech who protects himself with a shield and uses an energy sword, just as Reinhardt swings a mighty hammer with his shield. La Princesse is extremely angular like a green arrow, which may indicate that it is the fastest member of the troupe, and its double-armed cannons are like Tokkis. Mastermind floats above the ground using two jets on either side of the cockpit on mechanics, and it has a large cannon in the middle between two projecting arms. The final mek, Singijeon, is similar in size to D.Vas mek in Overwatch and it fires rockets from its shoulders while being able to fire at enemies with its handguns like MEKA character who made the cut.
It is currently unclear whether the rest of MEKA will join Overwatch 2‘s list, but many D.Va fans have expressed having seen at least one additional MEKA Pilot since the release of Shooting Star. Some Overwatch fans speculated that D.Mon would join the hero slider list before the announcement of Overwatch 2, but it becomes less likely the closer Overwatch 2s release it becomes. The successor to Overwatch has been delayed indefinitely, so maybe more new heroes will be added to the list of characters, just like Echo was.
Overwatch is available right now for PC, PS4, Switch and Xbox One.
