After so many anime fighters, you’d think that we’d have gotten a One Punch Man anime fighter already. Luckily, it seems the anime fighting game gods have heard our earthly pleas, and we’ve been blessed with an upcoming game starring the laziest superhero the world of anime has ever seen–among several other over-the-top heroes and villains.
Titled One Punch Man: A Hero Nobody Knows, the game supports 3v3 battles using some of the series’ most popular characters. Though, what’s intriguing is its recently announced “Hero Arrival” mechanic, which leverages the unyielding strength of its protagonist Saitama. The way it works is that during a match, Saitama can be summoned to help, though, true to form, he’ll be late, so you need to hold your own until he arrives and ultimately finishes the fight. Whether this mechanic is used in a particular mode or encompasses the game’s entire fighting system remains unclear. However, it certainly helps differentiate it from the other anime fighters out there.
Regardless, what’s most exciting about any game based on a famous anime are the characters you’ll get to play. After all, games like this are all about wish-fulfillment. One Punch Man: A Hero Nobody Knows has plenty to offer with a cast of around 13 confirmed fighters so far. More are likely to be announced as the days pass, but for now, we’ve compiled below everyone you can expect to play. Be sure to check back often as we update this feature with even more characters.
One Punch Man: A Hero Nobody Knows currently has no release date, but we do know that it’s coming to PS4, Xbox One, and PC. We’re crossing our fingers for a release date confirmation sooner than later.
