My Hero Academia is getting a battle royale • Eurogamer.net


For PS4, Switch, Xbox One plus ultra.

The popular My Hero Academia manga is being turned into a free-to-play battle royale game because there isn’t enough of it already.

Bandai Namco, who handled previous ties with MHA, announced My Hero Academia: Ultra Rumble in the latest Weekly Jump magazine (thanks, Gematsu).

Expect it to appear on PC, PlayStation 4, Nintendo Switch, and Xbox One at some point, and feature 24-player battles. Closed beta testing will take place in the future.

Despite its popularity, previous My Hero Academia games have been a bit of a mixed bag. My Hero One’s Justice – a 3D fighter developed by Byking and released by Bandai Namco in 2018 – received a mixed reception from fans. A 2020 sequel also failed to set the world on fire.

For the uninitiated, My Hero Academia is set in a world filled with superheroes, but features a boy born without. It’s a bit like Encanto, if you’ve watched it on Disney+. A live-action film is also in development.
