Leading video game publisher and developer Bandai Namco Entertainment America Inc. today announced MY HERO ULTRA RUMBLE, a free-to-play online multiplayer Battle Royale game based on the popular anime series. The game was revealed at the Bandai Namco “Summer Showcase” panel at Anime Expo® 2022 in Los Angeles, where the company also announced pre-registrations are now open for a Closed Beta Test on PlayStation®4 running August 18-21. Developed by BYKING, the studio behind the MY HERO ONE’S JUSTICE series, MY HERO ULTRA RUMBLE is coming to PlayStation®4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch™, and PC via Steam®.
In MY HERO ULTRA RUMBLE, players will join one of eight three-player teams as Heroes or Villains as they battle on expansive citywide maps. By controlling classic My Hero characters, fans can make the most of their Quirks to attack enemies and cooperate with their team to survive fights. Players can also contribute to their team’s victory by rescuing or intimidating civilians on the field to obtain powerful items that can determine the outcome of the battle.
“The world of My Hero and its colorful cast of Heroes, Villains, and their Quirks provide the perfect setting for a fun and frenzied free-to-play Battle Royale experience that remains faithful to the series’ themes and strengths,” said Aoba Miyazaki, Producer at Bandai Namco Entertainment Inc. “We’re eager to share our take on team-based Heroes vs. Villains gameplay through our first Closed Beta test, and we can’t wait to work with the community to make MY HERO ULTRA RUMBLE a thrilling Battle Royale experience for fans and players of online multiplayer games.”
