Does she count as a Loli if she's not a 10,000 year old, body-switched, magically de-aged adult?

There was a tweet saying that the next hero would not be Doomfist. Just like how they built up Sombra but released Ana first.

She's a bit too young to be a character in a shooter game, isn't she?

Both pedos and women alike will buy loot boxes in droves to get cutesy skins for her, and Blizzard is likely well-aware of that.

I'm betting that her actual in-game avatar would be some kind of robot she controls by remote. A game where you shoot at a digital child would be a real PR headache.

Either this or the news article took place "in the past" before her tragic backstory

My guess is she'll have a suit of power armor or robot body or something (kind of like D.Va but more Iron Man-ish and less mecha-ish).

Humor, it's what's for breakfast.

It would be interesting seeing her as a support/scout hero that uses drones. I can see her having an Abathur/Junkrat Riptire style gameplay that would be kind of interesting. It would be great having someone with drone scouts to find teleporters/report on turret locations etc.

Yeah, actually we don't know when in time this article is, so maybe it's considerably earlier and she's an adult by the time of the game.

Her name is a Yoruba name, furthering the idea that Numbani is Future!Nigeria.

That makes 3x Women in a row.

Blizz, I know you want to keep milking this "GIRL POWA" cancer but please, a bit of variety perhaps.

Numbani is confirmed to be in the Nigeria region. It's just a matter of if Nigeria still exists.

Check your privilege shitlord. There's absolutely no proof this character self-identifies as a woman.

Exactly, though as others are saying, having her be Abathur style with drones might be cool

Yeah, variety, like an asexual transhuman hermaphroditic genderfluid cyborg. I can hear Omacron's boner from here.
