The Overwatch Anniversary event was a chance to celebrate one year since the game’s launch but it also gave players of Blizzard’s multiplayer shooter a chance to bag some spectacular new loot. Some of this Overwatch loot included a brand new line-up of legendary designs, with few looking as brilliant as Genji’s Sentai skin.
The Genji skin looks phenomenal in-game, but it turns out that it looks just as impressive in real life too. Professional Cosplay Commissions Service, a company that sells cosplay props and outfits, has made its own version of the Sentai look, complete with a pair of shoes that light up.
The Overwatch skin is faithfully recreated, including Genji’s pointed head gear, the Japanese lettering on his chestplate, and there are lights on the arms and on the back of the outfit too. The company has even created Genji’s sword to complete the look.
Unsurprisingly, fans have flocked to praise the jaw-dropping creation, agreeing that it is nothing short of amazing. It’s unclear whether this is a one-off piece that can be bought – it doesn’t appear to be available for purchase on its store currently – so fans will just have to enjoy it from afar instead.

The cosplay outfit is just one of many impressive works made by Overwatch fans recently. While one player made Junkrat’s RIP-Tire ultimate out of LEGO, another rigged up a boxing glove to play as Doomfist. If Overwatch is at a gaming convention or event there is usually no shortage of incredible cosplay either, with fans eager to show off their love and appreciation of the game’s cast of characters.
The love of the game’s characters and their cosmetics also highlight why fans are so upset with the way that the game’s loot boxes work right now. There was significant backlash with the Overwatch Anniversary event, with fans saying that the price of collecting all of the new skins is too high.
With loot looking as good as it does, it’s understandable why some fans are unhappy with the amount of time it takes to unlock everything. Thankfully, though, Blizzard has vowed to improve Overwatch loot boxes, which will hopefully make accessing things like the Genji Sentai skin easier in the future.
Overwatch is available on PC, PS4, and Xbox One.
