The internet loves D.Va’s new Summer Games skin

Waveracer D.Va is less than a week away!

Overwatch’s Summer Games event is less than a week away, but the internet is fixated on one thing: Waveracer D.Va.

New skin reveals have been rolling out consistently since the Summer Games 2018 event was confirmed last week, but one skin has really inspired the Overwatch fan community. D.Va’s summer look has been the focus of many fan artists, who’ve created stunning art.

Blizzard’s really done a good job on creating a skin that resonates with Overwatch fans, many of whom are enamored with the details. For instance, Overwatch artist Kylee from Twitter pointed out that D.Va’s new skin captures some Korea-specific details, like using the Rose of Sharon—Korea’s national flower—over a more standard hibiscus design. (Rose of Sharon is a type of hibiscus, but not the same as the more well-known hibiscus rosa.)

Kylee also pointed out that long-sleeved swimsuits are popular in Korea to keep wearers from getting sunburned.

Winston and Reinhardt have also debuted new skins in the lead-up to the Overwatch Summer Games 2018 event, but none have caught the eye of artists like the D.Va skin. This morning, Blizzard revealed a new skin for Ana—and it’s extremely good, just like D.Va. We expect lots of art incoming. Here’s our favorite fan creations inspired Overwatch’s two beachy ladies.


Overwatch’s Summer Games event is scheduled to begin on Aug. 9. Alongside the new skins, Blizzard will bring back Lúcioball with a new map set in Busan, South Korea
