Izuku Midoriya and the whole gang are coming to smartphones in My Hero Academia Ultra Impact. Play and train together with your favorite characters from the anime right on your screen. Bandai Namco secured the nod with its author and publisher, Kohei Horikoshi and Shueisha, to create this explosive, free-to-play RPG mobile game. The game is set to release in Japan in 2021.
According to a Tweet by AnimeHub, My Hero Academia Ultra Impact is coming to Japan in 2021 on iOS and Android. The news was released on the latest issue of the Weekly Shounen Jump. Players can expect casual “quirk” battles using your favorite characters. The story and scenes are from the anime itself so that the players can experience the excitement and adventure first hand. As of this writing, the team is planning to launch an Android closed beta, and those interested can visit the official website and official Twitter account for more information. Both of which are still unavailable and locked.
As a free-to-play mobile game, My Hero Academia Ultra Impact will most likely have a gacha mechanic with a turn-based battle system. Since it will follow the series’s story, expect the characters from the anime to be available. There is no information yet if this will include the League of Villains, but it is more than likely possible.
There is no available trailer yet, but the anime will drop its fifth season in Spring 2021. A head-to-head battle between Class 1-A versus Class 1-B. Check out its trailer below.
My Hero Academia is written by Kohei Horikoshi and published by Shueisha. Its first release of the manga was on July 7, 2014, and it currently has 28 volumes. It was adapted into an anime on April 3, 2016, with 88 episodes. Two animated films were released, My Hero Academia: Two Heroes (2018) and My Hero Academia: Heroes Rising (2019).
