As the My Hero Academia anime advances through the Provisional Hero License Exam story arc, Bandai Namco Entertainment is preparing to launch their video game adaptation of the popular series. You’ll be able to play as many of your favorite heroes and villains on October 26th (August 23rd in Japan), and today one more fighter was officially confirmed. The vilest villain of them all is joining the fight.
Just as fans suspected, the mysterious final fighter (based on a single empty character slot in demo footage) has been revealed as All For One. The criminal mastermind and arch enemy of All Might had been shown in trailers, but today we have confirmation that he will be playable. All For One will fight with a mixture of close and long ranged attacks, and he has the ability to steal the quirks of his opponents.
This info was revealed in the latest issue of Weekly Shonen Jump, and it also gave a little more info on Plus Ultra special attacks. These attacks can be unleashed once a gauge has filled up, but if you let all three gauges fill up before activating, you can launch a “Plus Ultra All” attack. This will allow you to unleash the full power of your main fighter as well as both sidekicks simultaneously.
