The One-Punch Man collaboration will begin on March 7 and will end on April 6. During this time, a large number of themed challenges will be available that players can complete in order to obtain rare rewards, such as the previously mentioned Genos Genji skin.

During the lead up to the event, Blizzard is also planning to reveal each item that’s set to be included which could mean that there may be more valuable prizes up for grabs.
