‘Overwatch’ Fans Will Soon Be Able To Battle In Real Life With New Themed Nerf Rival Blasters
Video game developer Blizzard Entertainment has announced that it is teaming with Hasbro to launch a series of Overwatch-themed Nerf Rival blasters, bringing the video game’s battles into the real world.
“A new way to play,” Overwatch captioned a new teaser video on social media. “Get your hands on Overwatch-themed Nerf Rival blasters — coming soon!”
This won’t be the first time Nerf has partnered up to create some themed products. Previously they have released a Deadpool-themed Apollo XV-700 blaster, a Nerf Rival Deadpool Kronos XVIII-500 Dual Pack, a Nerf Rival Apollo XV-700 – Star Wars: Battlefront II Mandalorian Edition Blaster, and a Nerf Rival Phantom Corps Kronos XVIII-500.
No word yet, however, on whether Blizzard and Hasbro plan to create all-new Overwatch replica Nerf Rival blasters of if they will just be exisiting guns with branded with an Overwatch theme.
Should the latter be true and they just brand the Apollo XV-700 as they did for Deadpool and Star Wars, then the following features can be expected…
• A special edition box (if it comes in a dual pack)
• Breech-load blaster
• 5 high-impact rounds (10 rounds if it comes in a dual pack)
