She won't be released on the release date of Overwatch 2, but on the day after.

It's fair to assume that the first battle pass of Overwatch 2 will also be released the day after Overwatch 2 as well.

Kiriko abilities

Kiriko's trailer showcased some of her abilities and proved the leaks to be vastly correct.

The first ability shown in the trailer is her healing power. She throws what looks to be shrine papers and they follow enemies and heal her and her team right back.

We also saw her dealing damage with her throwing knives in the Overwatch trailer too. We don't expect these to be high damage but provide some nice poke for the team.

The next ability we saw was her infamous portal ability which allows her to follow teammates and enemies alike.

Her ultimate was also shown in the trailer. However, it's a little tricky to see what it does.

It looks like it provides team buffs in the way of movement speed and healing, which is great for keeping pace with enemies.

Kiriko confirmed leaks

This trailer confirmed many leaks about the new Hero.

Most obviously was the news that she is indeed a fox hero, and has traditional values at her heart.

Most of the abilities found in Overwatch leaks were accurate. Although none of them mentioned her ultimate ability which is a key aspect of this trailer.

With all of the buffs that she gives her team, her role as a support hero is firmly cemented.
