MechaStorm – Heroes of the Storm

MechaStorm – Heroes of the Storm

The "Hero Mecha Storm" intro animation.

MechaStorm is the special mecha-themed drop Blizzard Entertainment released for Heroes of the Storm in mid-January 2018. Lore-wise, the content connects to the "Mechas Vs. Kaijos" alternate universe.

The drop featured multiple mecha skins for a number of heroes, as well as other items for the Collection, including emojis, sprays, portraits, and a Mecha Tyrael announcer.

A MechaStorm "anime video trailer" was also released, which can be viewed to the right. The animation is heavily inspired by series such as Mobile Suit Gundam and Neon Genesis Evangelion.
