The developer behind the upcoming anime fighting game, Jump Force, has revealed that Izuku Midoriya, the protagonist of My Hero Academia, will be joining the roster. A recent trailer has shown the hero fighting alongside Asta from the popular series, Black Clover, which you can watch below.
Although My Hero Academia may be a relatively new series, Midoriya has seen a few costume changes as he grows into his role of "best hero." The one Bandai Namco has chosen to show off in the images and videos is called Costume Gamma and was initially worn by Midoriya when he developed his Shoot Style which switched the character's punch centric fighting style to one that leans more on kicking. It's safe to assume that Jump Force will include some of the new moves Midoriya developed at that point in the anime.
As of now, Midoriya is the only character from My Hero Academia to be featured in Jump Force. Other series are included in this anime cornucopia as well. Dragon Ball and One Piece bring upwards of 6 characters from their respective worlds, so there is potential that more My Hero characters could make their debut.
Jump Force is Shonen Jump's love letter to some of their most popular series. Some of the anime/mangas included in the 3D fighting game are Black Clover, Fist of the North Star, Dragon Ball, Naruto, Hunter x Hunter, My Hero Academia, Ruroni Kenshin, Saint Seiya, One Piece, Yu-Gi-Oh, Yu Yu Hakusho, and Death Note. The game also features a brand new story that unites the Shonen Jump multiverse against a greater universe ending threat.
Jump Force officially launches on February 15th, 2019 on PS4, Xbox One, and PC. We here at Gigamax are interested to see if this game can live up to fan expectations so be sure to check back with us here at GigamaxGames.com for all the latest details!
My Hero One’s Justice is available in North America in October 2018 but the Gigamax Games crew didn’t want to wait. Find early gameplay in the My Hero One’s Justice Let’s Play page with Gigs and Mack.

This fighting game incorporates characters from My Hero Academia and the Gigamax crew wanted to see if the fighting game lives up to expectations. Unlocking the Japanese version on a North American Switch allowed Gigs and Mack to play the game early. The language barrier isn’t the biggest issue in the world and instead, this is a great time to make first impressions of the game without getting too distracted.
First Impressions and Gameplay
Overall the game doesn’t include too many fighters which is a bit of let down. With such a massive universe to pull from, My Hero One’s Justice would have been much more exciting if they incorporated more characters from My Hero Academia. The combat is flashy and the destructible environments keep the battles interesting but the move list being in Japanese limited Gigs and Macks ability to get into the intricacies behind the fighting mechanics. It’s not the best fighting game on the market today, but any My Hero Academia fan might love taking control of their favorite heroes.
Once the English version is available, the Gigamax Games crew will need to give My Hero One’s Justice another try. Playing the game in Japanese is a great way to get an early look but Gigs and Mack can’t help but feel like they’re missing some crucial elements that would make the fighter stand out.

Those that follow the very popular anime series My Hero Academia will surely be pleased to hear that the upcoming action title based on the show has a confirmed release date for the West. Although, Bandai Namco has yet to reveal many other details on the unique anime game that is set for this year. My Hero One Justice will be available for PS4, Nintendo Switch, Xbox One and PC on October 26th, 2018. For a brief look at the game check out the release date reveal below.
The new trailer only shows a very quick look at gameplay but it certainly builds plenty of hype for fans of My Hero Academia. Bandai Namco described My Hero One Justice as an arena brawler where players can decide to take the hero or villain path on their mission for justice. Fans will be able to utilize the cast of heroes Quirks (superpowers) and call in two sidekicks to activate very powerful attacks that will use the environment to cause even more damage to the opponents. The game also includes vertical environments, as players are able to scale the sides of buildings and walls to get a better angle on enemies.
So Many Characters
My Hero One Justice will let fans of My Hero Academia choose between a ton of characters from the hit anime/manga. This includes Izuku Midoriya, Katsuki Bakugo, Tomura Shigaraki, All Might, and many other characters fans have grown to love (or hate). Each playable character also features an "Explosive Attack" that lets the hero use their Quirk in a big way. Pre-orders are not live for the game yet but will be up soon for interested buyers.
Those excited by the initial announcement feared that the game wouldn't make it to the West at all due to the last game based on the anime, My Hero Academia: Battle For All, only released for the 3DS in Japan back in 2016.
