Love is in the air. Players of Overwatch are speculating that Genji and Mercy are dating. Mined voice lines suggest this love angle in the game.
Genji and Mercy Love Angle?
Reddit users uncovered voice clips at the Public Test Realm (PTR). Furthermore, Blizzard released patches of the game that players can try before it is published. Reinhardt is among the characters in the roster. He was losing his patience over an Oasis map. Meanwhile, the conversation confirms a love angle that might be seen in the game.
Reddit user named akhanubis revealed three lines by Swiss healer Mercy, cyborg ninja Genji, and his brother Hanzo. Genji asked Hanzo if he packed any chocolates.
Mercy interjects, saying that she got some Swiss chocolates for Genji. Genji calls her Angela, Mercy’s real name.
Genji gives the chocolates he brought to Mercy. Although the chocolates we’re not Swiss, Mercy’s voice suggests that she is grateful for the gesture. Players mentioned that the two seem more affectionate to each other in the game. Furthermore, this is good news for the players who have been waiting for this to happen for a very long time.
Comic Reveals Possibility Of A Genji And Mercy Pairing
Meanwhile, a comic released in December illustrates Genji and Mercy writing love letters to each other. This may strengthen the angle that the two characters are indeed dating in the game. However, fans may be disappointed with this development. It has been mentioned in the past that they would like to see a Mercy and Pharah pairing in the future.
