Given the popularity of the My Hero Academia franchise, it should come as no surprise that video games featuring the anime and manga's characters are already being produced at a fast pace. Not only has there been the original My Hero One's Justice last year, a fighting game featuring characters from the franchise, but there's already a sequel coming next year, and now it officially has a release date.
While it had previously been expected next year, My Hero One's Justice now has an official release date: March 13, 2020. The fighting game is set to release for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PC via Steam, and Nintendo Switch early next year with what Bandai Namco touts as a revamped story mode as well as new characters like, for example, Sir Nighteye, All Might's former sidekick with the Quirk Foresight.
