Today Bandai Namco Entertainment announced the Japanese release date of My Hero One’s Justice 2.
The game will launch in the archipelago of the rising sun on March 12, 2020, with info on overseas releases to be shared at a later time.
Pre-orers have also opened in Japan today, and the game will be priced at the usual 7,600 yen plus taxes.
Pre-order bonus include Brainless, early access to two more (unknown for now) characters and costumes for four characters. The same costume for Deku will be provided to those who have a save of the first game on their platform of choice.
We also learn that the game will be playable at Jump Festa 2020 on December 21 and 22. A new villain will also be showcased.
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 and more revealing Nejire Hado and Tamaki Amajiki.
The game is also coming for PS4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, and PC to North America and Europe in 2020.
If you’re not familiar with the franchise, this is the second game of the series. Its predecessor is already available and you can read our review.
The original manga by Kouhei Horikoshi has been serialized since 2014 on Weekly Shonen Jump, and as usual it has sparked anime TV series, OVA, theatical films, and light novels.
