My Hero Academia is Getting a Live-Action Movie

Last month the ultra-popular manga/anime series My Hero Academia took its next big step with its first feature-length animated movie, and just days ago Bandai Namco’s fighting game adaptation of the series launched in the West. It seems like nothing can slow this franchise down now, and its next big move has already been announced: My Hero Academia is getting a live-action movie.

If that thought terrifies you, you’re not alone. Anime-to-live-action-movie productions aren’t always of the highest quality (or any quality, if you’re Netflix’s Death Note), but every now and then one succeeds. This particular project will be handled by Legendary Entertainment, with Alex Garcia (Godzilla, Kong: Skull Island) and Jay Ashenfelter (Pacific Rim: Uprising) supervising alongside Ryosuke Yoritomi from Shueisha.

The recently-released My Hero Academia: Two Heroes was a massive success in theaters, grossing $19,373,954 in Japan, North America, and Australia. It also secured a spot as one of the top ten highest-grossing domestic anime films of all time in the US. It’s not surprising that Shueisha would want to follow it up with a potentially even more lucrative live-action film. Let’s hope the result is a quality product that dedicated fans of the show can be proud to watch.

My Hero: One’s Justice Gets Deku’s Shoot Style as Free DLC


My Hero: One’s Justice launched in Japan last week, and it’ll be heading to North America and Europe in less than two months. The anime-adapted 3D fighter features a diverse roster of over 20 heroes and villains, each with their own unique fighting style. In the case of Izuku Midoriya, better known as Deku, that’s soon to be two unique fighting styles.

The latest issue of Weekly Shonen Jump has revealed that Shoot Style Deku is on his way to One’s Justice as a free DLC update. When using this style, Deku focuses on kicks instead of punches. Shoot Style Deku will have the fastest attack techniques of any character in the game, including consecutive kicks and new smashes.

Shonen Jump is also teasing another DLC character and a new mode. Based on the outline, the new character is Endeavor, who was previously available as a pre-order bonus.

All For One Officially Joins My Hero: One’s Justice

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.

My Hero Academia is in full swing, and Bandai Namco’s video game adaptation launches in just three months. On top of that, we’re also getting a movie! My Hero Academia: Two Heroes is the first ever movie version of the popular manga and anime series, and it’s going to be hitting theaters in Japan and North America soon!

Deku and All Might receive an invitation to I-Expo, the world’s leading exhibition of Quirk abilities and hero item innovations!Amid the excitement, sponsors, and pros from all over, Deku meets Melissa, a girl who is Quirkless just like he once was. Suddenly, I-Expo’s top-of-the-line security system gets hacked by villains, and a sinister plan is set in motion. It’s a serious threat to hero society,and one man holds the key to it all—the symbol of peace, All Might.

My Hero Academia: Two Heroes had an early showing for 3,000 fans at Anime Expo earlier in the month, and Gen Fukunaga (CEO and President of Funimation) called the response to the sold-out world premiere “incredible.” You can check out the movie’s first trailer above.

My Hero Academia is one of the most popular anime series in the world right now, and soon it’s going to be crossing over into video games as Bandai Namco’s My Hero: One’s Justice.

announcing an October window, Bandai Namco has just announced that One’s Justice will launch on October 26th, and they’ve also revealed a pre-order bonus: Endeavor. Including him brings the diverse cast of heroes and villains playable in this game up from nineteen to an even twenty.

My Hero: One’s Justice Adds Another Playable Hero and Villain

Bandai Namco’s upcoming video game adaptation of
My Hero Academia keeps getting better! The 3D fighter will debut in Japan this August, and it’s coming to North America and Europe in October. When it does, players will have a large and diverse roster of playable heroes and villains to choose from. Bandai Namco has just unveiled two more fighters for One’s Justice, including an old veteran hero and a violent villain.

The latest scans from Weekly Shonen Jump reveal that Gran Torino, a retried pro hero and All Might’s teacher, is joining the fight! Additionally, Muscular, the villain who attacked Kota and Midoriya during the Forest Training Camp Arc, will also be playable.

This brings the total amount of known playable characters to nineteen. Previously announced fighters include Izuku Midoriya, Tomura Shigaraki, Katsuki Bakugo, All Might, Ochacho Uraraka, Tenya Iida, Shoto Todoroki, Tsuyu Asui, Momo Yaoyorozu, Denki Kaminari, Eraser Head, Hero Killer: Stain, Fumikage Tokoyami , Kyoka Jiro, Eijiro Kirishima, Dabi, and Himiko Toga.

My Hero: One’s Justice Launches in October

My Hero Academia‘s anime adaptation reached new heights of excitement with yesterday’s episode, and there’s still so much more yet to come. If you’re hooked on the show and want to experience more of that world, you’ll want to check out My Hero: One’s Justice, Bandai Namco’s take on the popular manga and anime series. During E3 we received a new trailer and a release window for the upcoming 3D fighter, and we also got to go hands-on.

The action-packed E3 trailer shows off the game’s extensive cast of heroes and villains, which includes Izuku Midoriya, Tomura Shigaraki, Katsuki Bakugo, All Might, Ochacho Uraraka, Tenya Iida, Shoto Todoroki, Tsuyu Asui, Momo Yaoyorozu, Denki Kaminari, Eraser Head, Hero Killer: Stain, Fumikage Tokoyami , Kyoka Jiro, Eijiro Kirishima, Dabi, and Himiko Toga.

In addition to local multiplayer, My Hero: One’s Justice also features online battles, and you can customize your favorite fighters with tons of different looks for your own unique style. There’s also a Story Mode which lets you explore the plot from the perspective of both heroes and villains.

I’ve never been a huge fan of 3D fighters (so I can’t offer much in the way of a technical critique of the game), but when I saw it on the E3 show floor I was drawn in by my love of the franchise and decided to give it a shot. The game’s comic book art style, destructible environments, and flashy attacks all make for a visual feast. The game’s frequently-moving camera took some getting used to, but it makes for an exciting fight.

I found the controls easier to jump into than Dragon Ball FighterZ (which I had played earlier on Switch), and it felt easier to pick up for newcomers in general. Playing as Todoroki I was able to control my fights thoroughly with the combination of fire and ice attacks, using the latter to immobilize opponents whenever they got too close.

If you’re planning to join the fight yourself, we’ve got good news on that front! The trailer ended with the revelation that My Hero: One’s Justice will launch in the West this October. It’s currently planned to release in Japan on August 23rd. My Hero: One’s Justice will be available on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, and PC.

My Hero: One’s Justice Adds Two More Playable Villains

As the plot starts to heat up in season 3 of My Hero Academia, Bandai Namco continues to reveal more exciting news about the upcoming video game adaptation. My Hero: One’s Justice is headed to PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PC, and Nintendo Switch this August in Japan, and a worldwide release will follow later in 2018. Two more playable characters have just been revealed, and this time they’re both on the side of villainy.

Scans from the latest issue of Japanese publication Shonen Jump confirm that Dabi and Himiko Toga are joining the fight. Dabi fights best at a distance with his blue flames, and he can also create fire traps on the stage. Himiko Toga primarily fights with knives. Another attack is mentioned, but it would be a bit of a spoiler for those who only watch the anime and aren’t up to date with the later plot of the manga.

This brings the total amount of known playable characters to seventeen. The roster thus far includes a diverse variety of heroes and villains, as Izuku Midoriya, Tomura Shigaraki, Katsuki Bakugo, All Might, Ochacho Uraraka, Tenya Iida, Shoto Todoroki, Tsuyu Asui, Momo Yaoyorozu, Denki Kaminari, Eraser Head, Hero Killer: Stain, Fumikage Tokoyami , Kyoka Jiro, and Eijiro Kirishima have all previously been announced.

My Hero Academia: One’s Justice Unveils Two New Fighters

The video game adaptation of My Hero Academia is headed to PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Switch, and PC sometime later this year, giving you the chance to play as some of your favorite heroes and villains from the popular anime. Ten playable characters have been announced for this exciting game so far, and today publisher Bandai Namco revealed two more in the latest issue of Weekly Shōnen Jump.

The latest batch of character reveals is well balanced, with one hero and one villain. The self-righteous and tenacious Hero Killer: Stain and Class 1-A homeroom teacher Shota Aizawa (aka Eraser Head) should both be a headache to deal with, as they each have a way of crippling other combatants’ offensive capabilities.

Stain will rely on speed and ranged attacks, slicing opponents up with throwing knives. In the show, a single taste of an enemy’s blood will paralyze them, thanks to Stain’s Bloodcurdle quirk. The game will feature a similar mechanic, as opponents’ movements will become more restricted as they take damage from Stain’s knives.

Eraser Head will fight primarily with his Capturing Weapon. Much like the anime, Eraser Head has the ability to erase the quirks of his enemies, leaving them powerless. In the show this is done simply by looking at the victim, but it sounds like the Capturing Weapon is required for quirk removal in the game. Once an enemy’s power is removed, Eraser Head can move in for close combat counterattacks.

This brings the total amount of known playable characters to twelve. The roster thus far includes a diverse variety of heroes and villains, as Izuku Midoriya, Tomura Shigaraki, Katsuki Bakugo, All Might, Ochacho Uraraka, Tenya Iida, Shoto Todoroki, Tsuyu Asui, Momo Yaoyorozu, and Denki Kaminari have all been previously announced.

My Hero Academia: One’s Justice Looks Fantastic in New Screenshots

The popular anime My Hero Academia is gearing up for this third season next month, and sometime later this year it’s also getting a video game adaptation. The upcoming game is titled My Hero Academia: One’s Justice, and ten playable characters have been revealed so far, including the recently-announced fighters Tsuyu Asui, Momo Yaoyorozu, and Denki Kaminari.

Publisher Bandai Namco Entertainment treated us to a gallery of screenshots today, releasing dozens of new images that show off the three newly-revealed fighters.The publisher also released the following official descriptions for the three fighters:

• Denki Kaminari’s Quirk allows him to channel electricity from his body and shoot it. He cares for his allies deeply and is often afraid of hurting them with his electrical powers. Once he knows they are safe, he can unleash his true powers using his special move “Indiscriminate Discharge 1,300,000 volts”.

• Momo Yaoyorozu is the Vice President of Class 1-A. She is an extremely smart student who acts as a natural leader to her classmates, she was born in a famous Hero family and dreams of becoming a pro hero. Her Quirk is extremely powerful as it gives the ability to create any non-living materials via molecular manipulation. If she understands how something is made, she will be able to create it herself using her fat cells as material.

• Tsuyu Asui is a U.A. student with a frog-like appearance. Her Quirk allows her to do anything a frog can do such as extending her tongue to a maximum of 20 meters. She can also stick to walls and use a Camouflage ability. Tsuyu’s hero costume changes colors along with her, in order to blend in with her surroundings.

My Hero Academia: One’s Justice will launch in 2018. It will be available worldwide on PlayStation 4 and Switch, while PC and Xbox One versions will be available in North America and Europe.

Three New Fighters Confirmed for My Hero Academia: One’s Justice

Late last year, Bandai Namco announced a video game adaptation of My Hero Academia.

The latest fighters to join One’s Justice are a trio of students from U.A.’s class 1-A: Tsuyu Asui, Momo Yaoyorozu, and Denki Kaminari. No details have been given regarding their fighting styles, but I imagine Tsu will do pretty much everything a frog can. We’ll update you on any new details as they release.

All Might Smashes Into My Hero Academia: One’s Justice as a Playable Character

It’s fine now. Why? Because All Might is here!

My Hero Academia: One’s Justice is coming soon to PlayStation 4, Nintendo Switch, and—exclusively to the West—Xbox One and PC platforms. The upcoming video game adaptation of Kōhei Horikoshi’s manga pits heroes against villains in a 3D arena brawler, with Izuku Midoriya, Katsuki Bakugou, and Tomura Shigaraki confirmed as playable characters so far.

However, a My Hero Academia game would be incomplete without the series’ acclaimed “Symbol of Peace,” and so Weekly Shōnen Jump has announced this week that All Might himself will be joining the fray. Toshinori Yagi, known in-universe as the “Number One” hero All Might, wields the mythical “One For All” Quirk into battle. He is capable of unleashing powerful standard strikes that send opponents flying, with his moves ranked at “ultimate class.”

One’s Justice is expected to launch worldwide at some point this year. Are there other heroes or U.A. students you hope to be playable? Or are you more fond of the villains terrorizing the world of My Hero Academia? Go beyond and share your thoughts with us in the comments below.
