With Saitama’s popularity in anime fandom, it should come as no surprise that the One Punch Man universe is getting a video game adaptation. Prolific anime game publisher Bandai Namco has released a new One Punch Man: A Hero Nobody Knows trailer that reveals some of the game’s mechanics, character customization, closed beta, and more.
Launching sometime in 2020 for PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One, A Hero Nobody Knows will feature a dedicated story mode where you embark on missions as a created character, seeking to rise through the ranks of the Hero Association. You will engage in 3v3 battles impacted by the game’s world; various obstacles–such as giants, meteors, other heroes, and more–will attempt to thwart your mission success.
Alongside the trailer, Bandai Namco announced that A Hero Nobody Knows will have a closed beta for US, Canada, and Latin America next month on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. Sign-ups are open now and will remain so until October 16, with participants being selected and notified on October 29. The closed beta takes place between November 1-3 and Xbox One players are required to have an active Gold membership to join.
