An Easter Egg on Overwatch’s website pays tribute to the renown Konami Code used in various video game titles.
By punching in the code in on the game’s official homepage, fans will be treated with a D.Va saying the code proceeded by numerous images of D.Va mechs floating around on the screen. It can simply be typed in with your computer keyboard.
For those unfamiliar, the following is the code: Up, Up, Down, Down, Left, Right, Left, Right, B, A
The code was first used in an NES game called Gradius but popularized by the NES version of Contra. Although it appears commonly in Konami games, the code has been used many times by different developers throughout gaming history.
In other Overwatch-related news, the game’s new character Ana can apparently suspend certain characters in a state of sleep, resulting in players getting booted from matches. It takes around three Anas for the trick to work.
Overwatch released May of this year and is available on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC. Recently, the Competive Play mode was added for those interested in ranked play. For more of our thoughts on the game, check out Gamespresso’s review.
