Mechanics, Environment, and Story
My Hero One’s Justice will use a similar battle mechanics to Bandai Namco‘s Dragonball FighterZ and Naruto installments. Just like Dragonball and Naruto, My Hero will use a “team like” mechanic which is dubbed the “Sidekick System”. Players can choose up to 2 Sidekicks that can assist them in battle.
The world of My Hero is fully interactive meaning knocking opposing players or devastating attacks will wreck the surroundings giving an immersive feel.
It’s unknown how far we will get to see in this title’s story as the manga is vastly ahead of the anime. The anime is up to the Forest Training Camp Arc so I hope we can get at least to that point but I wish it will culminate to the big clash of Heroes vs Villains. My wish is perhaps confirmed with the cover art of the game that shows Tomura Shigaraki and Izuku Midoriya.
