Two heroes and two monsters have joined the roster of characters coming to One Punch Man: A Hero Nobody Knows, starring in the latest trailer for the upcoming game.
As introduced by Bandai Namco, those four characters are:
- Puri-Puri Prisoner – Jailed because of his tendency to assault other males, he is nonetheless an S-rank hero and a force to be reckoned with. Acting as the leader of a gang of prisoners, the flamboyant hero escaped from jail to protect civilians from the Deep Sea King. Upon powering up, his muscles mass increase, tearing up his suit and leading him to fight naked!
- “Snakebite” Snek – A-rank hero and well-known contender for the Super Fight tournament, the martial artist relies on his enhanced speed and strength to take down his opponents. After defeating a snake-type monster, he made a suit out of its skin and now wears it as a trophy.
- Crablante – Former human that turned into a perverted crustacean-shaped monstrosity after ingesting too much crab, he was also the first monster to ever cross Saitama’s path, when he still had some hair. Crablante opened his eyes on his potential as a Hero.
- Boros – Also known as the Dominator of the Universe, is the leader of a group of alien pirates. His strength is yet to be matched as he scouts the galaxy to find worthy opponents. Earthling heroes may prove to be exactly what he is looking for.
The game retells the events of the first season of the anime series, as Saitama goes from being a hero who just wants to have fun to joining the Hero Association and battling numerous seemingly unstoppable threats to the world. You, however, will get to experience this from another perspective, creating a whole new character for the universe with a shockingly good hero creator and battling through a story that weaves in and out of the manga and anime series’ events.
After playing One Punch Man: A Hero Nobody Knows a few weeks ago, I’ve been crashing through the anime on Netflix and Crunchy Roll, savouring its bizarre and silly take on superhero stories. In my hands on preview, I said, “Through it all, it feels clear that Bandai Namco have had to think a little outside the box when creating a game from such an off-beat manga and anime series. They’ll certainly be hoping that, while you might come for the outrageous character creator, you’ll stay for the quirky twists they’ve put in their 3v3 fighter.”
One Punch Man: A Hero Nobody Knows is out for PS4, Xbox One and PC on 28th February.
