Heroes of the Storm (Gameplay) - Genji on Hanamura (HotS Genji and Hanamura Gameplay) Game 3
Welcome to Hanamura – a large two-lane Battleground set within the sprawling grounds of Shimada Castle. Much like Towers of Doom, Heroes will not be able to directly assault the opposing core, but must instead find victory through use of the map’s unique mercenaries, taking down the Mega Enforcer boss, and actually escorting the Payloads!
The newest Heroes of the Storm assassin is Genji from Overwatch. This is one of my games from the HotS media summit in Paris. The gameplay also features the brand new 2 lane battleground Hanamura.
New Battleground – Hanamura
Payloads are the key to victory on Hanamura: escort a Payload to its final destination and deal damage to the opposing team’s core
Destroying enemy Forts and Keeps empowers your Payloads, making them deal more damage New Support, Recon, and Fortification mercenary camps drop unique power-ups to help your teammates or hinder your foes
The new Mega Enforcer boss requires solid teamwork to take down, and damages the enemy core once it’s defeated
Overview: Once the carefree youngest scion of the Shimada clan, Genji was cut down by his own brother for refusing to take part in their illegal ventures. Grafted into a cyborg body by Overwatch, Genji walks his own path as one who fights for what’s right.

Throw 3 Shuriken in a spread pattern dealing each damaging the first enemy it hits.
Stores up to 3 charges. Shuriken’s cooldown replenishes all charges at the same time.
