Bandai Namco Games’ upcoming 3D fighting game, the intriguingly titled My Hero One’s Justice, is set to launch in North America and Europe on PlayStation 4, XBox One, Nintendo Switch and PC in October 2018, the publisher confirmed in a new e3 trailer released today. The game is currently slated for Japanese release on 23rd August.
Based on Kohei Horikoshi’s best-selling manga My Hero Academia and developed by Byking (Gunslinger Stratos), the game features a plethora of characters from the series, from protagonist Deku, the villainous Himiko Toga and even more obscure members of Class 1-A, like best girl Kyoka Jiro.
The current confirmed list of playable characters, is as follows:
- All Might
- Denki Kaminari
- Eijiro Kirishima
- Fumikage Tokoyami
- Himiko Toga
- Izuku Midoriya
- Katsuki Bakugo
- Kyoka Jiro
- Momo Yaoyorozu
- Ochaco Uraraka
- Shota Aizawa
- Shoto Todoroki
- Tenya Ida
- Tomura Shigaraki
- Tsuyu Asui
The game will feature character customisation, allowing players to kit out characters in whatever style they choose (maybe we’ll have better luck with Bakugo than Best Jeanist did?) and online multiplayer.
