With Gamescom 2019 in full swing, announcements are trickling out at a steady pace. Prolific anime game publisher Bandai Namco has unveiled a trailer for One Punch Man: A Hero Nobody Knows, which shows new gameplay mechanics and characters.
Alongside series regulars Saitama, Genos, and Speed-o’-Sound Sonic, S-Class heroes Terrible Tornado, Silverfang, and Atomic Samurai are joining the game’s roster. These three characters bump A Hero Nobody Knows’ roster to 13 playable characters. It’s unclear what the final roster count will be.
Saitama is known to defeat enemies with one punch, and the new trailer shows how his overbearing strength is used in-game. A Hero Nobody Knows implements some sort of Hero Arrival mechanic, where you must survive while Saitama makes his way to the battlefield. In the trailer below, Saitama is running on the left-side of the screen with quite a distance to go. Performing combos and perfect guards reduces his arrival time. Matches seem to become one-sided when he gets there, as Saitama absorbs a lot of damage and defeats everyone with one punch.
One Punch Man: A Hero Nobody Knows was announced back in June 2019. No release date was provided, but the 3D fighter is “coming soon” to PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One.
