The colorful cast of heroes and villains from My Hero Academia will soon be playable on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PC, and Nintendo Switch. Bandai Namco’s game adaptation of the hint manga/anime launches worldwide later this year, and its roster continues to expand. Twelve playable characters had previously been revealed, and today three more were confirmed to be joining the fray.
Fumikage Tokoyami (aka the Jet-Black Hero), Kyoka Jiro, (aka Earphone Jack) and Eijiro Kirishima (aka Red Riot) are all headed to My Hero: One’s Justice. Full details on their fighting styles are not yet available, but Kirishima’s hardening quirk can apparently be used to negate blowback from enemy attacks, although it appears he’ll still take some damage.
This brings the total amount of known playable characters to fifteen. 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, and Hero Killer: Stain have all been previously announced.
