K/DA is a K-Pop group in the League of Legends universe made to promote skins of the same name for champions Ahri, Akali, Evelynn and Kai’sa.
The group even has their own lore, and Riot blew fans away with a “live” performance by the group during the opening of the 2018 League of Legends Worlds tournament.
Tracer was the first Overwatch hero to get a K/DA crossover from Liang and as we’ve covered before they did a great job of turning Blizzard’s fastest hero into Akali.
Of course, it wouldn’t be K/DA Akali without the facemask and her iconic jacket even includes Overwatch logos for Tracer. Like Akali, Liang gave Tracer an awesome blacklight alternative as well.
Even though there in-game counterparts couldn’t be more different, Mercy fits into Overwatch’s K/DA perfectly as Kai’sa.
Besides the hairstyle, you can tell Mercy is supposed to be Kai’sa based on her clothes, wings and the Daughter of the Void’s trademark gold bracelet.
Hana Song AKA D.Va is already Overwatch’s resident K-Pop star, so of course Liang had to include her in the K/DA crossover skins.
This concept makes you realize K/DA Ahri already looks a lot like Overwatch’s Black Cat skin, so we know at least D.Va would be able to supply her own cat ears.
Last but certainly not least, Liang turned Widowmaker into K/DA’s lead vocalist Evelynn. Unfortunatly we’ve never really heard Widow sing, but just looking with this skin it’s clear she would kill it.
Due to Blizzard and Riot games being separate, competing companies, we probably won’t see any K/DA skins show up in Overwatch, but these concepts give you an idea of how awesome it would be.
The next Overwatch event up is Anniversary, which usually begins around the end of May. We don’t have any exact details on new skins coming for the event yet, but Overwatch Director Jeff Kaplan has teased a new D.Va skin that will “break the internet” according to him.
