One Punch Man: A Hero Nobody Knows is a 3 vs. 3 action-fighting game, where players can form powerful teams using their favorite characters as they fight in a universe where attacks from powerful villains are the norm.

Players can take the role of Saitama, a salaryman-turned-hero who can obliterate the strongest foes with a single punch. Players will also be able to play as other fan-favorite characters such as Genos, Hellish Blizzard, Speed-o’-Sound Sonic, Mumen Rider, Vaccine Man, Mosquito Girl, Deep Sea King and Carnage Kabuto

In One Punch Man: A Hero Nobody Knows players will get the opportunity to fight with the most iconic characters of the One Punch Man franchise in furious 3 vs. 3 battles.

Today’s trailer displays  One Punch Man: A Hero Nobody Knows’ Free Battle Mode where players will fight in teams of up to 3 characters. The goal will be to defeat each enemy combatant, whilst selecting the right character at the right time to stand as the victor. 

In order to harness Saitama’s insane strength, the game will also introduce a unique concept in this mode – The Hero Arrival System.

Players will have to meet a number of criteria if they want to play as the strongest hero. In order to make Saitama selectable, they will need to choose two fighters first. When the fight begins Saitama’s team will have to survive until his arrival despite the numerical disadvantage. Combos or perfect guards will remove time on the counter. When the Caped Baldy finally enters battle, one punch should be enough to pacify any situation!   

Three additional characters have also been confirmed to be part of the final roster, respectively 2nd, 3rd and 4th of the S-class ranking: 

  • Terrible Tornado: An Esper wielding psychic powers capable of crushing displays of power.  
  • Silverfang: Beneath his old man appearance lies a seasoned martial art expert. 
  • Atomic Samurai:  He is regarded as Earth’s best sword master and one of the strongest heroes, even within the S-rank class. 

Based on the popular Shonen Jump series, One Punch Man: A Hero Nobody Knows will be coming to PS4, Xbox One, and PC.
