"StarCraft II" is set to include "Overwatch" hero D.Va, as per reports.

D.Va is coming to "StarCraft II," according to the game's official webpage. As per the publication, the new D.Va announcer is set to be part of the game's in-game goodies, which also include a D.Va portrait. It is added that it is available for BlizzCon attendees and Virtual ticker handlers.

Along with the said details, D.Va is set to join the crew of six other announcers Blizzard Entertainment released with Patch 3.7. However, she is the first announcer whose background stays outside the "StarCraft II" realm. The character is famous for her operations within the "Overwatch" team, but she embarked her mission in the "StarCraft" esports scene.

At the age of 16, D.Va rose as the #1 player in the world. Also, her StarCraft exposure makes her credible as an in-game support for players. In this regard, players will be able to have a more interactive and engaging gaming experience.

According to Kotaku, the in-game government turned to the country's professional gamers, as it scrambled to look for qualified candidates. One of the top stars was D.Va, also known as reigning world champion Hana Song, who is known for her "elite skills." She served as a "fierce competitor" who played to win while having a "well-earned" reputation for being merciless to her opponents.

D.Va is set to be available for purchase soon, as per PC Gamer. However, the date has not yet been specified. As per the publication, players can have a look at her gaming style at Battlenet.

Developed by Blizzard Entertainment, "StarCraft II's" "Wings of Liberty" was initially released for Macintosh and Microsoft Windows in 2010.
