New Overwatch animated short focuses on Mei-Ling Zhou

Hey there, did I tell ya ’bout my robot friend?

At Blizzard’s Reveal Ceremony at Gamescom today, they screened a brand new animated Overwatch short, the first in quite some time, featuring the story of adorable/frustrating Queen of Cryo, Mei.

Mei’s episode is short on action, but features a bit of backstory, a bit of joy and some sorrow. I absolutely love all these mini-movies, and this one even made me shed a tear get something in my eye (To be fair, I’m pretty much a constant ball of heightened emotion, blame the coffee).

Hope you enjoy it, and here’s hoping it isn’t another year until we get the next installment in the series.
