The attacker spawn zone for the Hanamura stage is an aracde featuring several game cabinets containing references to other games:
•Fighters of the Storm, which features Tyrael from Diablo and Tychus Findlay from StarCraft 2.
•Fighters of the Storm 2, which features Sarah Kerrigan from Starcraft and Garrosh Hellscream from Warcraft.
•The Lost Vikings VI, an homage to the Blizzard game The Lost Vikings featuring a Starcaft 2 viking spaceship.
•Siege Mode 3, which depicts a marine and siege tank from the StarCraft universe and resembles the Metal Slug franchise.

The name of the arcade itself can be seen from outside of the building and is called 16-Bit Hero. It's mascot resembles a pixelated version of Jim Raynor from the StarCraft universe.

NSFW - This trivia is considered "Not Safe for Work" - Click to Reveal
On May 5th, Overwatch entered public beta. Coinciding with this event, the pornography-hosting website Pornhub had reported that its searches for the game had increased by 817%. More than 600,000 searches for Overwatch related content on Pornhub had been made by May 23rd. Additionally, a website dedicated to Overwatch content by the name of OverwatchHentai.net has been created.

Given the nature of said content and the game itself being intended for a more broad audience, numerous takedown orders have been filed against creators of this 3rd party content, allegedly due to some creators using stolen assets taken from the game.

According to sound design supervisor Paul Lackey, the "hit-pip" sound played when you successfully shoot another player was created using the sound of a beer can opening.

According to Lackey:

"Another extremely challenging sounds was the 'hit-pip.' When you hit someone, you need to know you made contact. The sounds needs to cut through the mix but not feel like it comes from any hero. It went through tons of iteration. Finally, one night I thought, 'It should be satisfying to hit an enemy.' Just think about what's satisfying: beer. So I literally opened a beer can. Pssht. The sound is reversed and tweaked a little, but that sound is our hit-pip."
