My Hero Academia is getting a F2P battle royale game

My Hero Academia is one of the hottest animes currently, with the franchise seeing more than 100 episodes released on TV, and 3 theatrical international film releases. The IP is now attempting to find success in the free-to-play market, as a My Hero Academia battle royale has now been announced.

As reported by Comicbook.com, a new My Hero Academia game is on its way. While the previous two titles were traditional arena fighters, this latest game will be a free-to-play battle royale game.

Titled My Hero Academia Ultra Rumble, the game is a 24 player team based battle royale (with 8 teams of 3) in which teammates must combine their different and unique abilities to win the game. Along the way, players can pick up skill cards, improving the character’s abilities and techniques.

So far, 12 characters have been announced, though more will reportedly be available. These 12 characters are: Midoriya, Bakugo, Todoroki, Asui, Uraraka, All Might, Cementoss, Mt. Lady, Shigaraki, Dabi, Toga, and Mr. Compress.

Alongside the announcement, Bandai Namco showed off some gameplay,  revealing what looks like a very Bandai Namco-quality title – though it does admittedly look quite fun. Currently, no release date has been announced, but a Japan-only beta test will be going live sometime in early February.

My Hero Academia Ultra Rumble will be coming to PlayStation 4; Xbox One; Nintendo Switch; and PC via Steam.
