One Punch Man: A Hero Nobody Knows Launches February 28th

Bandai-Namco and Spike Chunsoft have confirmed the release date of their upcoming 3D fighter, One Punch Man: A Hero Nobody Knows during their latest trailer. It also confirms an additional set of characters being added which includes Metal Knight, Stinger, and Melzargard.

The trailer seems to confirm the existence of a story mode, as well as a non-playable character King, an S-Class hero who can freeze people in place in special events. Lastly, we’re shown another version of Saitama — the “Dream Saitama” from the very first episode who is vastly weaker than normal Saitama and is capable of fighting enemies like everyone else.

Of course, normal Saitama isn’t actually a playable character. Instead, he’s representative of the time counter — it takes approximately two minutes for him to reach the battle, though this can be sped up through perfect guards. When he appears, he delivers a one hit knock out to end the battle.

The four characters added here bring the game’s total character count to 20, though it pulls largely from the first season of characters rather than the second.

One Punch Man: A Hero Nobody Knows is available on February 28th, 2020 for PC, Xbox One, and PS4.
