One Overwatch player has made a game mode in the Workshop that transforms Genji into Dio Brando from JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure.

Dio is one of the main antagonists in the JoJo series and definitely one of it’s most popular characters, based on the amount of memes floating throughout the internet that feature him.

Overwatch players have created plenty of JoJo x Overwatch crossover content, like having JoJo characters pose for POTG highlights, but this mode by Therister is the first JoJo-inspired game mode in the Workshop – that we’ve seen, anyway.

Overwatch fans love their JoJo memes.

“It was me, Genji!”

Therister’s Dio mode basically allows players to play as a suped-up raid boss Genji against any and all challengers.

Genji/Dio isn’t alone though, as he gets help from his stand, The World, which is played by Doomfist in Therister’s game mode.

Genji and Doomfist both have special abilities in this mode that makes fights look much more anime-like and worthy of a JoJo x Overwatch crossover.

They even added little “Muda Muda” graphics for when Doomfist/The World starts beating up on characters, which is a nice little touch for the Dio aficionados out there.

Unfortunately, Blizzard doesn’t allow outside content to be uploaded or used in the Workshop, so all the music and sound effects were added in post-production.

For players who want to try out Therister’s Dio mod, the Workshop code is: T7358. They also suggest changing the name of Team 1 to “MUDA” and Team 2 to “ZA WARUDO!!” to get the full Dio experience.

Baptiste’s Reunion Challenge comes to Overwatch

Overwatch’s June 18 patch contained balance updates for several heroes, but also kicked off Baptiste’s Reunion Challenge, which gives players the opportunity to unlock new sprays and a new skin for Baptiste after winning 9 games.

Players can also earn up to 7 more new Baptiste sprays by watching Overwatch streamers that have drops enabled during the event, as long as they have their Twitch and Battle.net account linked.

There are no JoJo references, as far as we know, in any of Baptiste’s new cosmetics, but players should still unlock them because once the event ends on July 1, they’ll be gone for good.

The popular anime doesn’t hold back punches, as it opens with the Kamado family being slayed by creatures. Nezuko survives, but is turned into a demon. The show follows the heroine and her brother Tanjiro as they look for a cure.

Russian cosplayer Melissa ‘gardeeva_melissa‘ brought the cursed protagonist to life with a costume she posted on Instagram. The artist posed next to flowers in the character’s signature pink patterned yukata, and her kimono which drapes over her shoulders.

Melissa faithfully captured Nezuko’s look, perfectly mirroring her flowing black hair, which turns vermillion at the bottom in curls. She even depicted her pale pink eyes, which is the color they change to after the heroine is turned into a demon.

The Demon Slayer cosplayer shared another photo of the outfit and showed off her bamboo gag accessory. In the series, Nezuko uses the item to chew on in order to control her urge to attack humans. Photographer ‘del_phot_o‘ captured the Russian artist biting down on the prop.

As if that wasn’t impressive enough, Gardeeva created a video portraying the anime protagonist. The cosplayer really does look like Nezuko as she moves her striking pink eyes around.

Demon Slayer fans eagerly waiting for the show’s return are in luck as this October, the anime is getting the theatrical film, Mugen Train. The movie will bridge the gap between Seasons 1 and 2.
