My Hero Academia Game, One's Justice, Reveals DLC Characters And Day-One Update
Arcade mode is also coming as a free day-one update.
Bandai Namco's latest anime brawler, My Hero One's Justice, is set to arrive on PS4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, and PC later this week. Ahead of its release, the publisher has revealed a couple of DLC characters players will be able to get in the game, one of which will be free to everyone.
Right from launch, Bandai Namco will offer Shoot Style Izuku Midoriya to all players as a free download. This version of My Hero Academia's main protagonist fights primarily using kicks. Once players have downloaded him, Bandai Namco says they'll be able to purchase missions for Shoot Style Deku through the game's store.
Those who pre-order My Hero One's Justice ahead of its release will get an additional bonus character: Endeavor, the No. 2 ranked hero in Japan and the father of Shoto Todoroki. If you don't pre-order the game, you'll still have the option to purchase Endeavor separately as paid DLC. Just as with Shoot Style Deku, everyone will also be able to buy missions for him through the game's store once he's been downloaded, although no pricing details have been announced yet.
In addition to the aforementioned characters, Bandai Namco is releasing a day-one patch for My Hero One's Justice when the game launches this week. The update will add Arcade mode, a ladder-style tournament that pits players against CPU opponents. Bandai Namco says that completing this mode with different characters will unlock an "exclusive item."
My Hero One's Justice launches for PS4, Xbox One, Switch, and PC via Steam on October 26. It's the first game based on My Hero Academia to release in the West and features many of the series' most recognizable characters, including Izuku Midoriya, Katsuki Bakugo, Tomura Shigaraki, All Might, and more.
