New My Hero One’s Justice 2 Trailer Spotlights Its Villains

A new trailer for the upcoming video game sequel My Hero One's Justice 2 focuses on its villains, spotlighting the likes of Overhaul, Tomura Shigaraki, Twice, Mr. Compress, and more. As it introduces each villain, key art and pose included, it goes on to show off exactly what they look like in action, and it would appear that every single one of them will be a formidable foe.

There's even a secondary, more, well, "Overhaul" version of Overhaul with multiple limbs, but surprisingly, it is Mr. Compress that comes out of the trailer looking the most interesting. Given his Quirk, where he literally compresses things into little balls, it was a bit unclear exactly how that might play out in the game, but it would appear that he'll use it to gain all sorts of tactical, battlefield advantages, tossing his enemies around like nothing at all. (And what looks like some sort of finisher seems pretty epic as well.) But don't take my word for it! You can watch the trailer for yourself.
