For a long time now, Bandai Namco’s upcoming 3D fighting game based on the hit shonen franchise My Hero Academia has been refered to only as “My Hero Academia Game Project” or some similar variation, and while the ambiguous 2018 release window has not been changed, Bandai Namco has now confirmed the actual title of the game to be My Hero One’s Justice. It may seem odd to drop the “Academia” part from the title, but either way we still know what the game is all about.
As for how far along development is, nobody knows but you can already see a lot of in-game action simply by viewing the announcement trailer:
MY HERO ONE’S JUSTICE takes place in a world where most of the population has superpowers known as Quirks, and where heroes and villains are commonplace. One day, Izuku Midoriya, a bullied middle school student without a Quirk attempts to save his childhood bully Katsuki from a villain. In recognition of his good deed, the world’s greatest superhero, All Might, bestows upon Izuku his own Quirk known as “One For All”.
Pick your side and choose between hero or villain in the fight for justice. With fan favorite characters, players will be able to choose up to two sidekicks to create the ultimate team. The two sidekick characters will provide crucial combo opportunities with their specialized moves, providing dynamic fights full of hard-hitting action. The explosive powers each character wields will wreak havoc on their opponents and the environment around them. The best players will use the environment to help defeat the opposition.
My Hero One’s Justice will be released for the Playstation 4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, and PC Digital via Steam.
