Published by Bandai Namco Entertainment, My Hero One’s Justice brings the over-the-top action from the My Hero Academia manga and anime to life in a fun 3D fighter. The game’s roster is comprised of 20 colorful characters, each with their own special powers (known as quirks in this universe) and attacks that can take down opposing heroes or villains in a variety of ways. Even if you’re not familiar with the series, the character’s huge personalities leap off the screen and pull you into an engaging world where powered-up people are the norm and smashing your enemies into fully destructible environments is an everyday occurrence.
In addition to My Hero One’s Justice’s quirky roster, the game also features a variety of modes that add a whole lot of replay value. Aside from your standard local and arcade mode, you’ve got a rich story mode with multiple paths to take and a mission mode that imposes rules that could drastically affect the outcome of matches if you’re not careful. You’ll need to be careful if you want to keep earning money to customize your characters with different costumes, voice lines, and other unique unlockables that can also be earned following your victories. While it won’t take long for you to get a hang of the game’s accessible controls and gameplay mechanics, you should definitely spend some time practicing offline before squaring off against other players online, as they are far less forgiving than any AI character could ever be.
