Today Bandai Namco Entertainment released a sizable gallery of screenshots of its upcoming fighting action game My Hero One’s Justice 2.
The screenshots introdice two new characters that will join the playable cast directly from the anime, Nejire Hado and Tamaki Amajiki.
You can check them out below.
Here’s what the publisher had to say about them in the press release.
“Nejire Hado and Tamaki Amajiki of “The Big 3” join the character roster in MY HERO ONE’S JUSTICE 2 as brand-new playable characters! Nejire Hado’s Quirk – Wave Motion – allows her to convert her vitality into energy, which she can release as blast waves from both her hands and feet.
Nejire’s quirk is extremely powerful and she can easily overpower top villains on her own. Tamaki Amajiki’s Quirk – Manifest – allows him to manifest the characteristics of things that he eats as long as it is still in his system. Tamaki’s quirk allows him a vast amount of variation and unpredictability with his attacks.”
We also get to see a new dodge mechanics coming with the new game.
“Along with new characters, MY HERO ONE’S JUSTICE 2 also introduces a brand-new dodge mechanic that allows players to evade attacks from opponents, adding a new layer of gameplay to the fight.”
Incidentally, if the title of the game rings a bell but sounds like something is missing, it’s because the original name is My Hero Academia One’s Justice 2. Like for the first game, Bandai Namco had to cut the “academia” in the west, likely for licensing reasons.
If you’d like to see more of My Hero One’s Justice 2, you can enjoy the first announcement trailer and the second one, showing a bit of gameplay, on top of a lot of screenshots showing off Mina Ashido and Minoru Mineta.
The game is coming for PS4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, and PC to North America and Europe in 2020.
