The upcoming My Hero Academia video game My Hero One's Justice 2 is set to include a whole slew of different characters from the franchising, ranging from Izuku Midoriya to Sir Nighteye and more. With the game's March release quickly approaching, more and more characters have been announced over the past several months. It would seem that several more are yet to be announced, as it's now been revealed that the Pro Hero Fat Gum and villains Twice and Mr. Compress are joining the title.
The news comes courtesy of the latest issue of Weekly Jump, which included the announcement. Apparently Fat Gum can absorb opponents attacks, releasing them back and becoming thinner in the process, while Mr. Compress can (as his name implies) compress opponents and Twice can pull off some two-on-one shenanigans. Given the Quirks of these characters, these abilities make total sense, though it'll be interesting to see how the game deals with the overpowering nature of some of these.
