Yes, A One Punch Man Game Now Exists
But Saitama beats everyone with one punch...
After a four-year hiatus, Saitama and Genos returned to being superheroes for fun in One Punch Man Season Two. Prolific anime video game publisher Bandai Namco Entertainment seeks to capitalize on the momentum, announcing a One Punch Man video game that is "coming soon" to PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One.
Developed by J-Stars Victory Vs and Jump Force creators Spike Chunsoft, One Punch Man: A Hero Nobody Knows is a 3D arena fighter set in the One Punch Man universe. The game features 3v3 battles with series characters like Fubuki, Genos, Mumen Rider, Speed-o'-Sound Sonic, and Saitama. A Hero Nobody Knows looks just like the anime, with all the over-the-top action expected of the titular character's exploits. Check out the announcement trailer below.
Herve Hoerdt, senior vice president of marketing at Bandai Namco's Europe branch, said A Hero Nobody Knows is a great way to jump into the eponymous anime, while "fans of the series can play as some of their favourite characters [in] exciting 3 vs. 3 battles." No definitive release date has been given.
Debuting in October 2015 in Japan and April 2016 in America, One Punch Man follows the unstimulated Saitama, a man so strong that he beats everything and everyone with a single punch. This unparalleled strength, not even matched by Season One big-baddie Lord Boros, leads the titular hero down an existential crisis, trapping him in a perpetual state of boredom. The series returned with a second season in April 2019.
