You know how the old saying goes: every time a popular anime and manga franchise gets an arena-brawler video game adaptation for consoles, an angel gets their wings. Well, some angel out there somewhere is going to be getting a pair of superhero-fueled wings soon, thanks to Bandai Namco. The Japanese video game company is publishing the upcoming anime action game My Hero One’s Justice 2. Now, thanks to a recent leak from Famitsu Weekly Magazine, we now know exactly when fans will be able to pick it up and get an angel those wings.
Revealed in magazine scans that will officially release in a few days, My Hero One’s Justice 2 plans to launch on March 12, 2020. While this release date currently only applies to Japan, the game is likely to have a worldwide release on the same day. We’ll know more soon when Bandai Namco officially announces the release date later this week.
Based on the hit anime and manga series My Hero Academia, My Hero One’s Justice 2 is all about plucky and colorful superheroes duking it out with various evil villains and no-good-doers in large, destructible arenas. As a sequel, the game will introduce a variety of new characters into the fray. One such character is the newly announced Mirai Sasaki, or Sir Nighteye, who plays a prominent role in the currently airing arc of the anime.
You’ll also be able to involve more characters than ever in the action thanks to the inclusion of the Side Kick Plus Ultra System, which allows you to call support characters in during battle for help. On top of this, each character in the game will have their own story mode.
Fans in Japan who pre-order My Hero One’s Justice 2 will receive a free unlock for the character Brainless, early access to two currently unknown DLC characters, and bonus DLC costumes for Izuku Midoriya, Katsuki Bakugo, Shoto Todoroki, Tsuyu Asui, and Ochako Uraraka.
My Hero One’s Justice 2 will release on March 12, 2020, for PlayStation 4, Nintendo Switch, Xbox One, and PC.
