Damn you, Blizzard. You’ve figured us out.

The gaming mega-company is known for some of the world’s most popular, including:

  • Overwatch
  • World of Warcraft
  • Starcraft
  • Heroes of the Storm

Now speaking of these mega franchises, Blizzard recently announced they’d be releasing some new Heroes of the Storm character skins via DLC. Sure, some add-on skins are no big deal – they release this digital filler crap all the time. It’s just some garbage extras that suckers drop money on.

But it seems those crafty bastards have found a way to get me excited about DLC. Ugh.

Their devious marketing team created a promo video that managed to capture my attention. The animated short features 3 characters from their games, each with a flashy anime-mecha-makeover. They’re pitted in an intense combat, reminiscent of some legendary Gundam battle.

I hate to admit it, but it’s pretty sweet. Check it out:

Dammit, now I want to buy all the character skins. Freaking digital costumes. I am now a sucker.

In case you didn’t recognize those combatants, they were Rehgar the orc from World of Warcraft, Tyrael the Archangel of Justice from Diablo 3, and Abathur the Evolution Master from Starcraft 3.

Perhaps the reason I get so pumped over these kinds of videos is because I love character crossovers. Back in the day, I went ape-shit over Marvel vs. Capcom… But the 80’s squealing metal guitars don’t hurt either.

Take note, gaming industry – if you want to sell people stuff, just package your sales pitch into something awesome. Mechas are a safe bet. I mean, Blizzard seems to be pretty good at taking my money, so just copy whatever they do.

The trailer is the handy work of animation studios The Line out of London and Axis Animation out of Scotland. Blizzard’s skin DLC is available now.
