Bandai Namco and Spike Chunsoft announced that One Punch Man: A Hero Nobody Knows has been announced for Xbox One and PS4. The upcoming 3D fighting game sees many of the popular characters from the game making an appearance in the title based on the eponymous hero.
The One Punch Man: A Hero Nobody Knows game was announced via a trailer rolled out by Bandai Namco on June 25th. It features some in-game play, where various characters roll out their combos and attempt to damage Saitama, the One Punch Man. However it appears as if nothing they do inflicts any damage on the character, which could make for some really boring gameplay unless there’s an extra trick to the whole thing.
You can check out the gameplay trailer below.
The trailer goes through a couple of the playable characters, including Saitama’s sidekick Genos, along with Mumen Rider, who uses his bike to unleash combos and attacks on opponents.
We also see Speed-o’-Sound Sonic, another villain from the series who utilizes his projectiles and sword attacks against the heroes.
There’s also a busty chick who makes the roster, Fubuki, also known as Hellish Blizzard. We see her using various attacks and abilities to dish out damage. But obviously most people are probably more interested in her loli-bait sister, Tatsumaki
There’s only a handful of playable characters revealed in the trailer so far but expect more characters to make the cut closer towards the game’s release.
The only thing we do know is that this is a team-based fighter, not unlike Dragon Ball FighterZ, so I’m sure there will be certain rules in play to make it fair for when people have Saitama on their side.
We’ll have to wait to find out the release date, the rating, and the price tag. But so far it’s looking very similar to other Bandai titles like Naruto Shippudden: Ultimate Ninja Storm or the recently released Jump Force. I imagine if you’re a fan of One Punch Man and Bandai Namco’s tried and true formula then you might take an interest in A Hero Nobody Knows.
