As fans eagerly await the anime’s seventh season, they at least have lots of projects to look forward to. Following the special episode reveal, the My Hero Academia battle royale game is finally confirmed to release in late September.
After holding a beta test a few months ago, the battle royale game My Hero Ultra Rumble finally has an official release date.
Surprisingly, the game’s launch is just one week away, meaning fans won’t have to wait too long before they can try this latest My Hero Academia game.
My Hero Academia’s Latest Game Is a Battle Royale
My Hero Academia is one of the most popular modern Weekly Shonen Jump franchises. Aside from the manga being a bestseller, the anime adaptation by Bones has continued to enjoy a large audience worldwide.
Thanks to its popularity, the series has also gotten various game collaborations and projects. On the collab front, My Hero Academia teamed up with Fortnite last year.
Meanwhile, the series also has standalone game releases such as My Hero One’s Justice, the 2018 fighting game. This title became successful enough to get a sequel which was released in 2020.
Now, My Hero Academia fans can look forward to the latest game in the series, but it’s not another fighting game. Instead, it’s a battle royale titled Ultra Rumble where teams of three face off against seven opposing squads.
In the game, players can play various popular characters in the series, including Deku, Bakugo, Todoroki, All Might, and more.
Unlike most battle royales which are shooters, Ultra Rumble has a combat system that’s more reminiscent of arena fighting games.
