Check out Mercy’s sweet new skin for Overwatch’s Winter Wonderland

by Bill Cooney


Blizzard has continued to reveal skins for Overwatch heroes leading up to the start of the Winter Wonderland Event on December 11, this time it’s Mercy’s turn with a sweet “Sugar Plum Fairy” skin.

The first hero to get a new skin for the winter was Zarya, with her “Snowboarder” skin and then Lucio was next with the awesome “Arctic Fox” outfit.

Winter Wonderland 2018 will also feature a holiday version of the BlizzardWorld map, along with all of the other snow covered maps from past years as well.

Mercy really does make the perfect fairy here, since they work for Blizzard, the Overwatch team probably had no trouble at all finding the perfect fairy wings to put on Mercy.

She’s also got the appropriate pointy ears, and some green hair to really complete that woodland sprite look.

We’ve seen some of Mercy’s skins come with unique voicelines, like the Witch skins for example, and it would make sense to if this skin came with some special visual or sound effects to top it all off.

In addition to all the new skins, maps and cosmetics, the Mei’s Snowball Offensive and Yeti Hunter minigames will return as well.
