Bandai Namco recently unveiled a new game based on the popular My Hero Academia anime/manga series, titled My Hero Academia: One's Justice. The game is in development for Nintendo Switch and PlayStation 4, but until now it wasn't clear whether or not it would only be released in Japan, as was the case with the series' previous title, My Hero Academia: Battle for All on 3DS.

Fortunately, Bandai Namco has confirmed that the upcoming My Hero Academia game will indeed release in the West, and in addition to PS4 and Switch, it will be available on Xbox One and PC. Tentatively called My Hero Game Project, the title is an action-adventure game that's slated to arrive sometime in 2018. Here's how Bandai Namco describes the title:

"Based on the popular manga and animation series 'My Hero Academia,' the My Hero 'Game Project' will feature the superpowers named Quirks and the clash between Super Heroes and Super Villains. Players will be able to enjoy massive stage destruction on the ground and in the air using walls and buildings surrounding the stage."

We got our look at the first screenshots from the game earlier this month. Bandai Namco has also shared the first trailer, which you can watch above. While it doesn't feature any gameplay footage or English voiceovers, it includes English subtitles and provides a brief look at the series' main protagonist, Izuku Midoriya, as well as the mysterious villain Tomura Shigaraki.
