appears as a playable character in the first-person shooter video game Overwatch, developed in 2016 by Blizzard Entertainment. Genji also appears in Overwatch-related media, including animated shorts, as well as a playable character in Blizzard's crossover multiplayer online battle arena game Heroes of the Storm.
As the brother to the playable character Hanzo, Genji was the youngest son of the Shimada ninja clan's master. In Genji's backstory, the brothers lived a life of luxury, but Genji's arrogance drove Hanzo to rage. Hanzo was ordered by the clan's elders to kill Genji, and he was believed to have succeeded. However, Genji clung to life, and Mercy, a doctor from the Overwatch organization, rebuilt his body. Within the Overwatch game, Genji was classified as an offense character with a hard difficulty rating. He is an advanced cyborg ninja, who uses his shuriken to attack, as well as his katana to deflect incoming projectiles, to swiftly strike through enemies, and to summon his Dragonblade ultimate.
Originally, Genji and his brother Hanzo were designed as one character called Hanzo. However, Blizzard Entertainment thought this arrow-firing, shuriken-tossing, and katana-wielding character was too complex, therefore splitting it into the two characters we see today. Hanzo kept the name of the original character, as well as the general aesthetic of that character. In beta testing, Genji was described as being quicker than most characters in the game, with unique evasive abilities including double jumping and wall climbing.
The story and relationship between the two brothers were unconventionally inspired by a cooking show titled Jiro Dreams of Sushi, in which the older brother had to inherit the restaurant and carry on his father's legacy, while the younger brother had more free will. In the English version of the game, Genji is voiced by Gaku Space.
