Bandai Namco Entertainment just announced My Hero Academia Ultra Rumble, a brand new My Hero Academia video game.
It’ll release for PS4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, and PC, but a precise date or window have been announced just yet.
The game is a free-to-play 24-player online battle royale game that lets you fight as one of the characters from the popular My Hero Academia anime. Players are split into teams of three.
We also already know that it’s being developed in Unreal Engine.
The announcement also mentions a closed beta for My Hero Academia Ultra Rumble coming soon. Testers will be recruited for Japan between January 17 (today) and January 28.
Below you can watch an announcement trailer and an extensive gameplay presentation with about half an hour of content providing a good look at what the game looks and plays like.
At the moment of this writing, no announcement has been made for the western market, so we’ll have to wait and see if the North American and European arms of Bandai Namco Entertainment provide new information on that front later.
This is, of course, unrelated to the other My Hero Academia game published by Bandai Namco, My Hero One’s Justice 2, which is currently available for the same platforms.
