Following the official announcement of One Punch Man: a Hero Nobody Knows, Bandai Namco followed up with a press release with plenty of assets.
Looks already better than Jum Proce haha. I'm still keeping my expectations low though. I love One Punch Man but most arena brawlers spike shunsoft made were average at best. Would have been better if Byking or Cyberconnect2 developed the game. Plus, I'm kinda tired of broken arena brawlers and I would have loved to see them experimenting another genre for the game.
Does it? It looks pretty much the same to me.
Character design wise. At least they're not trying to make the characters look hyper realistic like in Jump Force.
Agree it look and play the freaking same, what a disappointment.
This game is only better than Jump Force because of the art style. However, good artstyle doesn't make a game any better, and seeing that Spike are making the game, I won't hold my breath for this to turn out any good. It sucks because I love One Punch Man but I'm already getting tired of anime turning into arena brawlers. Give me something new, dang it.

Ehhhh Anime should stay away from video games. Less your a fighter.
@Tech5 Dang, did they hired the people from Sword and Shield to work on the graphics lol.
Reminds me of Burning Blood but why not?
a jrpg would have been better. Play as a disciple of saitama's with jokes at his expense to provide comedy and then you go exploring the city. Maybe fight bosses above your league while patrolling the city, slowly rank up and deal with the hero association. Maybe have saitama save you because he's bored and out on a stroll walking one day when you face the ultimate boss for you. Then build up and face another strong creature this time saitama is at the grocery store and forgot about you so you're on your own. It could be a great game. I'd have paid full sixty bucks for that. But a brawler? as if there aren't enough of those and how lame and out of touch the ceo's must have been because Saitama wins everything in the anime with very little effort, it's the main joke of the series. It just doesn't make sense story wise.
Agreed. An rpg that takes place in the One Punch Man universe would have been a better choice. Kinda like that one Trigun game that was announced a long time ago, which was sadly cancelled. Then again, I guess turning it into an arena fighter would be cheaper to make I guess. I'll still be getting it but I'll be toning down my expectations.
That sounds terrible. I mean the prospect of a one punch man game sounds terrible in general. So I don't mean any offense.
You're not the only one here. However, even if it's a bad idea, I'd still take that over another unbalanced arena fighter anyday.
A 3d fighting game? They dropped the ball on that one. I absolutely adore OPM, it’s the only anime I watch and the only manga I buy. I’d rather play as saitama smashing through hordes of enemies then see him fight Mumen rider....
the worst part about this is they'll think people don't want games of opm when in actuality they want good games that make sense. Having one punch man in a brawler is very stupid and ruins the whole intention of the anime.
It’s probably the easiest type of game to push out and slap a brand on it like the old half baked movie based games.
Yeah i figure that's what they're doing but they just don't know the anime very well if they think this was a good decision for a game.
Exactly it kinda misses the point. It would be fun to have like 4 coop player beat em up and everybody picks a different character. If you pick saitama then it’s going to be ridiculously easy. Go through the story in an hour and a half. Go through again as sonic and it becomes a bit more difficult. Going through with mumen rider is god tier play lol. So much potential and the setting is already there. Just make a city Z map and the monsters coming up in endless hordes. Boss fights with giant monsters, etc. I would buy it. Plus city Z is evacuated so it’s not like you have to show people running around screaming. You can have large scale destruction.
So I'm guessing you play as the other supporting characters, build up a special move and then unleash Saitama to come out and instantly K'O your opponent.
If they want to make it a fight at least copy ultimate ninja storm formula or the 2018 fist of the north star 😑
This. Anime games nowadays are either musous, brawlers, or visual novels. Only few are doing something new, and those are usually hit or miss, like the SAO games.
Did you ever play the Fullmetal Alchemist games on the PS2? They were awesome, I was happy not to see yet another anime fighting game when I played them.
Only Japanese voiceovers? That’s a hard pass from me.
Same, the Japanese voice overs are annoying as hell, OPM's English dub's are some of the best cast I've heard and it's a real REAL shame that they won't be in this.
To bad One Punch can't be a DLC character for Dragon Ball Fighter Z as well
Was excited until I realise it was an arena fighter...from Bandai...developed by Spike.
Another anime for them to ruin great just great
wouldve been soo excited if it were cyberconnect developing this.. right now its the total opposite.
I started watching this show because I wanted to see how they sustained such a premise, being nobody is really a challenge for him. The butt chinned kid in the 1st 5 minutes hooked me. It's basically Curb Your Enthusiasm if Larry had Superman's strength. That said, game is gonna be a pass.
I thought we’d see another Superman game before a One Punch Man game
I read One Punch Man and I was super hyped. Then I read arena brawler and cried
This is going to be one easy ass game lol.
i hope it plays better than jump force
... how the hell does a fighting game featuring One Punch Man even work?!?!!?
I really want this to be good...but...
