The follow up to the 2018 hero battler, My Hero One’s Justice 2 is coming out in less than a month, arriving on 13th March for PS4, Xbox One, Switch and PC. The latest trailer for the game shows off the story – beware of some season 4 anime spoilers! – four new characters and its various game modes.
We already knew about them, but there’s now more variants of main character Midoriya than is probably healthy, with Full Cowling 100% the latest evolution of the character as he faces off against villain Kai Chisaki / Overhaul Ver. – the pre-order bonus is an early unlock of these two characters and Nomu.
There’s also four new announcements which are:
- Gang Orca: One of the top heroes, his mutant-type quirk allows him to call upon the strength of the ultimate apex predator – the Killer Whale. He uses his enhanced sense and sound wave manipulation abilities to defeat villains.
- Seiji Shishikura: Seiji is one of the elite student of the prestigious Shiketsu high school. His quirk let him freely manipulate raw flesh, giving him an absolute advantage against any living creature.
- Camie Utsushimi: Another Shiketsu student, Camie is also one of the most promising hero-in-training of her generation. Her body can produce a mysterious fog that alter her opponent five senses putting them in a weakened state.
- Kendo Rappa: One of Overhaul’s henchmen specialized in close-range combat. He is a formidable fighter looking for the strongest opponents and striving for battle were he can stake his life on the line.
There’s a variety of different play modes to take these new characters, and plenty of old ones into. Alongside the main story, where you’ll play from both the Hero and Villain point of view and relive the anime’s action, you have Mission mode in which you manage your own Hero Offices, complete missions, and earn money and fame to expand your team and recruit more characters. Finally, there’s your classic Arcade mode, with each character having pre-set battle that will trigger special dialogue.
I recently went hands on with the game (and subsequently binged all of Season 4 on CrunchyRoll), saying, “The good news for those that enjoyed the first game is that the sequel is very much a sequel.”
