Today Blizzard unleashed a batch of new skins for its popular Blizzard-verse MOBA Heroes of the Storm. With the update called Mecha Storm you can probably guess where the team drew its inspiration from. The original Transformers cartoon series from the 1980s, the entire robo-anime genre, figurines with bulky and movable parts.

Turning iconic Blizzard heroes into anime inspired robots isn't as easy as it sounds. As Michael Cuevas, Senior 3D Animator on the Heroes of the Storm team explains.


Transforming a character like Tyrael, the angelic force of power from the Diablo franchise was not as simple turning his wings into shiny pieces of metal. “[Tyrael] was actually more challenging and his look was one of the things that wasn’t a one-to-one transition,” Michael tells me. “The wings on Tyrael are programmatically animated in the engine (via ribbon FX) and there are only two organic wings on Seraphim which behaved completely different. On top of that, there’s a total of six wings on Mecha Tyrael that had to be considered. Iterations ranged from “did absolutely nothing” to “always in the way”. In the end I think we found a good balance.”
