Former Overwatch League champion and 2019’s Most Valuable Player, Jay ‘Sinatraa’ Won revealed the release window for his upcoming MVP skin while queuing with his ex-teammate Matthew ‘Super’ DeLisi.

The 20-year-old DPS prodigy, who recently retired from Overwatch to go pro in Valorant, was preparing to defend King’s Row when a player on his team asked about his new skin.

“Yo Sinatraa, just out of curiosity, do you even know what the MVP skin is going to be for you or is it all a surprise?” the player wondered.

Sinatraa dominated OWL in 2019, leading the Shock to championship glory.

“I’ll see it soon,” he replied. “But I think it’s coming out in like two or three weeks or something.”

This news seemed to even catch Super by surprise. “Wait, two to three weeks?” he questioned, but was met with reassurance from Won, confident that fans will get their hands on it soon or “something like that.”

The Overwatch League has honored its MVPs and League champions with unique limited-time skins. The first season saw Sung-hyeon ‘JJoNak’ Bang named MVP for his standout Zenyatta play, while the London Spitfire and San Francisco Shock had Winston and Doomfit skins skin designed for their championship victories.

As Dexerto previously reported, Jon Spector, Vice President of Overwatch esports, made it clear that even though Sinatraa had retired and move to Valorant to play for the Sentinels, the skin was still coming.

“This skin is something we know he, along with our fans and players, has been looking forward to, so we will release it as planned in the next few months. It’s an awesome skin and we can’t wait to share it with everyone,” he wrote back on May 1 in a post on Reddit.

Sinatraa previously revealed his skin would be for Zarya.

With the Overwatch League on a three-week break and set to return on June 13, it’s looking like the new skin will be unveiled upon its return.

Additionally, with OWL Token Drops finally back, this would be an opportune time to get more casual fans invested by having them want to earn tokens to unlock the special skin.

As for which hero Sinatraa’s MVP skin will be for, the star leaked that information way back in September, 2019 when he revealed it would be for Zarya – a hero he dominated on during the GOATs meta that plagued most of the league’s second season.

Until then, better stock up on OWL tokens and it doesn’t seem like we have that much longer to wait until the skin releases.

Overwatch update gives Winston Sombra and D.Va new Karaoke voice lines

Overwatch’s last patch on November 19 has finally given Sombra, Winston, and D.Va new Easter Egg karaoke voice lines on the Busan map.

The ability for certain heroes to sing on Busan isn’t exactly a secret, but it is a fun little Easter Egg hidden away. Devs have apparently been hard at work adding heroes to this exclusive club recently as well.

A few months ago Ashe, Baptiste, and Widowmaker joined the club, and, just before 2020 wraps up, Winston, Sombra, and D.Va have finally been let in on the fun as well.

The karaoke spawn room on Busan lets Overwatch heroes sing their hearts out.

Apparently added during the November 19 patch, these new voice lines weren’t found by players until a few days later when videos started to pop up. Sure enough, all three have new voice lines, though we wouldn’t exactly call what Sombra is doing “singing.”

Instead of laying down any bars, Sombra simply discusses the merits of hacking, pays off all of the neighbors’ bills (how nice), and changes the Karaoke bar landlord’s WiFi password (not so nice).

Winston’s two lines play on him being both a great ape and a great scientist. One has him explaining the first law of thermodynamics to players: “energy cannot be created or destroyed.” His other is about clapping with his hands and feet since, you know, he’s a gorilla.

Finally, the pièce de résistance, at least for all of the D.Va players out there, are her new Karaoke lines. In Overwatch lore, Hana ‘D.Va’ Song is both an esports champion and K-POP star, so you’d think she would have gotten her lines much sooner than she did.

If the Tank singing “Pew Pew Pew” isn’t adorable enough, she also proudly proclaims, “someone has to save the world, it might as well be me,” along with another line in her native tongue, Korean.

This brings the number of heroes who can sing on Busan up to 17 with Winston, Sombra, and D.Va; which is officially more than half of the 32 heroes currently in the game.
