Zenyatta has a new skin for the Overwatch Lunar New Year event and uh, is it getting hot in here or is it just me?
Zenyatta's new skin portrays him as Tang Sanzang from the Chinese novel Journey to the West. Sanzang is actually the central character of the novel, which is about the Buddhist monk's pilgrimage to obtain religious texts.
All that is really fascinating, but the Sanzang skin also gives Zenyatta chiselled cheekbones and luscious lips. Zenyatta is hot. I'm so sorry for doubting this before.
zenyatta has always been hot you cowards

For a lot of players this comes as a surprise. Some are comparing him to Handsome Squidward from Spongebob Squarepants.

I'm also really glad that I just got to part 3 of JoJo's Bizarre Adventure last night so I understand these jokes.

To everyone having a crisis over Zenyatta's face: I love and understand you.
patch notes: we purposely tried to give zenyatta the most attractive face possible so you'd all have a crisis over being hot for a robot

But the best thing about fandom liking something a bunch is really good fanart. The fanart of the Sanzang skin has been phenomenal. Truly, we are blessed.
