a new game for mha

In a few years, My Hero Academia has conquered most of the fans of manga and anime, by revisiting the traditional genre of superheroes in the purest shonen nekkestsu style. Take young heroes carrying hopes and ambitions, evil and charismatic villains, add a myriad of powers all more diverse than the next, and you have the perfect ingredients for a recipe that can be declined on well. supports.

And according to Gematsu, the publisher Bandai Namco understood it well, since it announced the next game My Hero Academia : Ultra Rumble in the last issue of the magazine Weekly Jump. The game would then be a completely free-to-play battle royal.. Very little is currently known about the game, but the announcement clarifies that it will feature 24-player matches, and is currently available on PlayStation 4, Xbox One and Nintendo Switch.

Although no release date has been communicated, the announcement indicates that a closed beta will be open in the near future. It is currently unknown whether players will be able to apply to participate or whether the beta will be a closed initiative. One thing is for sure, many fans will be excited about a new game My Hero Academia, although some will probably also have some reservations.

not the first try

Car My Hero Academia is no stranger to video game adaptations. As reported CBR, the popular franchise of Shonen Jump has appeared on several major game consoles and even tablets and smartphones over the years. The most famous video game based on the series is My Hero One’s Justice, a fighting game developed by Byking and published by Bandai Namco. Released in 2018, the title allows players to take on the role of iconic heroes and villains from the series, engaging in duels in a variety of environments recognizable in the anime. Corn My Hero One’s Justice has received mixed reviews, because despite an elegant interpretation of the explosive fight scenes of the game, many have lamented the combat system and the story, deemed superficial and too repetitive.

But the game was successful enough to spawn a sequel, My Hero One’s Justice 2. Released in 2020, this sequel improved on the original in several notable ways. While critics still feel that the combat system isn’t appealing enough, other parts, like the story campaign, are much more detailed and extensive.

The characters of My Hero Academia also appeared in Jump Force, a game bringing together the characters of many cult Japanese animation licenses, but which unfortunately did not know how to seduce its public, to the point of being withdrawn from all digital stores just a few years after its launch.

Another point that could potentially divide the players would be concerning the choice of the type of game. Indeed, by having made the choice of the royal battle, My Hero Academia is riding the trend of recent years, but also takes a risk by offering a new game in an already well-exploited and somewhat proven style. Hopefully, with the potential they have thanks to the original material, they will be able to offer us a game at the height of the eponymous original work.
