Another My Hero Academia Game Is On The Way
My Hero One's Justice 2 will feature new characters and "significantly upgraded" Quirk abilities.
Publisher Bandai Namco has you covered if you're looking for more My Hero Academia content, as the team announced a new MHA game is headed to Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One. My Hero One's Justice 2 is on the way, but no release date has been announced as of yet.
Gematsu reported the news, sharing a screenshot with additional information from the latest issue of Weekly Jump tweeted out by user Spytrue. My Hero One's Justice 2 is said to be a follow-up to My Hero One's Justice, which launched on PC and consoles late last year. Not much is known about My Hero One's Justice 2; however, Gematsu claims it will add new characters--like Kai "Overhaul" Chisaki--and "significantly upgrade" various Quirk abilities. The Xbox One version will be "a digital-only release in Japan."
In our My Hero One's Justice review, we said, "It's a shame My Hero One's Justice's Story mode doesn't do a good job introducing the world of My Hero Academia, with several important narrative beats either missing or revealed through subtitles while you're busy trying to fight. The offline modes against AI don't do much for the game either. However, One's Justice's combat is both accessible and enjoyable. When two players face off--either online or off--the game captures the adrenaline-pumping feeling of My Hero Academia's most notable fights. Pulling off moves from the manga/anime and outsmarting an opponent with devastating combos feels rewarding, and that's enough to keep the player coming back to the game for more."
In other MHA news, the anime is set to return this October for a fourth season. Funimation announced that My Hero Academia Season 4 will air on its website and Hulu, with FunimationNow streaming a SimulDub. A second MHA film, My Hero Academia: Heroes Rising, is scheduled to release on December 20 in Japan.
