My Hero One's Justice 2 Adds New Characters

The roster for the new My Hero Academia video game, My Hero One's Justice 2, continues to grow! Two more Shiketsu High School students are joining the fray in the form of Camie Utsushimi and Seiji Shishikura. While the two characters haven't been featured too much in the manga or anime, what appearances they have made have certainly been impactful.

Spoilers for the My Hero Academia franchise as a whole follow. You've been warned.

The news comes from a recent Weekly Jump, which commonly reveals such things for anime video games before they are publicly announced in North America. You can likely expected Bandai Namco to confirm both Camie and Seiji in the next week or so given that the game is set to launch on March 13th.

According to Weekly Jump, Camie can use her Glamour Quirk, which allows her to make illusions out of a smoke-like substance she emits, to get a jump on opponents, and Seiji's Meatball Quirk -- he can manipulate raw flesh and uses it to basically "meatball" people in the anime and manga -- provides both defensive and offensive capabilities in the video game.
