Everything is summarized in the promotional image above, but each event feature will be explained further below, so continue reading for all the specific details you’ll need to know.

Roadhog’s Catch-A-Mari Game Mode

Roadhog’s Catch-A Mari is a new limited-time Kill Confirmed Game Mode that will run for the event. For now, the Overwatch team hasn’t gone into much more detail or provided any sneak peek at how this game mode will operate, but if the Battle for Olympus event limited-time game mode is any indicator, then I’m sure it will have some fun spin.

All New Rewards in Overwatch 2’s PachiMarchi 2023 Event

Roadhog’s Epic Pachimari Skin

Roadhog’s Epic Pachimari skin will be an earnable reward throughout Overwatch 2’s PachiMarchi event. This was a one-time skin released in the previous PachiMarchi event that the team has brought back once more. Still, the limited re-release gives players who missed the chance to grab it for their collection and new players to the game who never got the opportunity to participate in a PachiMarchi event.

Hogimari Player Icon

Players who log in to the Overwatch 2 game within the dates of the PachiMarchi 2023 event will automatically receive a ‘Hogamari’ Player Icon as a reward for doing so. There’s been no promo image of this icon, but the name indicates it will feature a Pachimari character inspired by Roadhog, perhaps wearing his mask or wielding his hook.

Challenge Rewards

There are also several event challenges providing rewards when completed. These rewards include a series of Pachimari-themed Player Icons, a Pachimischief Weapon Charm, and a Triple Pachimari Player Card.

While Blizzard has posted no official images of these items, the well-known Overwatch leaker OWCalvary has posted an image that appears to show off these items. You can view these in the Twitter post below.
