The new My Hero Academia game for the PlayStation 4 and Nintendo Switch, titled One’s Justice, is only confirmed for a Japanese release but it appears very likely that it will headed westward in the future as well.
This assumption is based off the fact that Bandai Namco has just trademarked One’s Justice in Europe, suggesting that the publisher has plans for the game outside of its native country. Generally speaking, when Bandai Namco makes a trademark in Europe, one in the West isn’t too far behind as evidenced by it’s actions with .hack//G.U. Last Recode in June.
To recap, My Hero Academia: One’s Justice is described as a battle action game featuring “realistic stage destruction” through the use of superhuman powers called “Quirks.” There isn’t much known about the game other than that protagonist Izuku Midoriya and villain Tomura Shigaraki will both be featured within, however, the game is due to appear at during a stage event at Jump Festa 2018 on Dec. 16, so we’ll likely hear more information about it on that date.
Thought Bandai Namco acted quickly in doing so, the fact that One’s Justice is already trademarked outside of Japan is hardly surprising. Debuting in Weekly Shōnen Jump in 2014, My Hero Academia quickly became a hit worldwide thanks to its premise and interesting cast of heroes and villains. Since its inception, the series has spawned two spin-off manga, an anime television series (the second season is ongoing) and a Japan-exclusive game on the Nintendo 3DS, titled My Hero Academia: Battle for All. Furthermore, there are currently rumors floating around which suggest it will also be getting a movie in 2018.
Here’s to hoping we get plenty of info about the game next week.
