Blizzard Calls D.Va's Bluff, Nerfs Her Gun... Literally

Blizzard Calls D.Va's Bluff, Nerfs Her Gun... Literally

Official D.Va Nerf gun toy coming in 2019.

Overwatch has a pretty good thing going on with toymakers. The popular Blizzard heroes can be found on backpacks, in the form of Funko Pop figures, and now you can even get a Nerf version of D.Va's Light Gun, a surefire hit on college campuses everywhere.

Overwatch announced the Nerf toy today on Twitter and showed off what looks like a mock-up of the final product. It looks exactly like D.Va's pistol complete with neon pink and green coloring, and the little rabbit charm attached to the gun's grip.

Nerf is promising up to 80 feet per second and something call recoil action. No price or release date was revealed for the D.Va Nerf gun other than a 2019 release window.

Blizzard has a couple other Overwatch toy products in the pipeline. The company announced that it is working with Lego to make minifig sets for Overwatch, and I can only imagine that this Nerf gun will only be the first in what is sure to be a line of Overwatch-based Nerf toys, if only because Blizzard has continuous relationships with all its other toy making partners.

In the meantime, if you're a hardcore D.Va fan, you'll probably be able to complete a full D.Va cosplay just from the official Overwatch branded D.Va merch already released. There's already official headphones, jackets, and now this Nerf gun modeled after Overwatch's Korean pro-gamer/mech soldier.
