Overwatch's Winter Wonderland event is returning next week and bringing along with it a new Hanzo skin.

Overwatch game director Jeff Kaplan hinted that it's a fan-favorite Hanzo look that showed up in an Overwatch digital comic. "A long awaited Hanzo skin that you've seen before maybe in one of our comics is coming to light," Kaplan said in a Developer Update.

Kaplan didn't name the comic that the Hanzo skin appeared in, but we have an idea as to what it might be—the cool guy Hanzo from the Reflections comic. And if it's not, the fandom is going to be really disappointed. Reflections Hanzo is wearing a stylish jacket and sporting a top knot with an undercut.

He looks more hipster than bow-wielding bad-ass, but we like it. (Someone get Hanzo a Macbook, stat.)

Kaplan mentioned that there will be a bunch of other legendary Overwatch skins coming with the event, including skins for everyone's favorite Junkers—Roadhog and Junkrat, of course. We're hoping that it's the holiday in Australia looks the duo sport in last year's Winter Wonderland sprays.

Either way, the new skins are only a few days away. Winter Wonderland is scheduled to kick off Dec. 12.
