Hearthstone references[edit | edit source]
- The house in the bottom right corner of the Gadgetzan battlefield feature references to the Overwatch characters Genji and Hanzo in the form of a green-edged katana, shurikens, and arrows, the weapons of those two heroes. The sword, when rapidly clicked/tapped on, has a green dragon that spins around in, in a confirmed reference to Genji's Ultimate ability, Dragonblade. The distinctive "Pachimari" doll fished up from the docks is also originally from Overwatch.
- Four Hearthstone cards can be found lying on a table on the Overwatch map Castillo.
