My Hero One’s Justice 2 Announces New Character and Mission Mode

The new My Hero Academia video game, My Hero One's Justice 2, from Bandai Namco seems to be adding just about every possible character to its roster, and that includes the new reveal of Kendo Rappa, one of Overhaul's top goons from the franchise's Shie Hassaikai arc that can deliver a ton of punches thanks to his Quirk. But that's not all that's been revealed! There's also a new mode coming to the sequel.

According to a recent issue of Weekly Jump, there will be a new mission mode in My Hero One's Justice 2 where players work to build a hero office. This includes stuff like hiring allies -- and even villains -- and using points gained from playing the game to develop characters. What this actually looks like in action remains to be seen, but it certainly sounds pretty cool.
