Fans of My Hero Academia will now have a chance to become their favorite heroes themselves thanks to Funimation and Sony’s latest collaborative effort: the My Hero Academia: The Strongest Hero mobile gaming.
Coming to both iOS and Android devices later this year, the new game features all of the anime series’ most beloved characters, including Class 1-A’s Midoriya, Bakugo, and Todoroki as well as other pro heroes like All Might and Endeavor. For those with a more sinister preference, you’ll also be able to play as some of the villains, like Stain. Allowing you to build your own team roster in story mode, you’ll lead your squad to victory against the show’s antagonists including Shigaraki and Nomu. There’s also a PvP and Allied Assault co-op mode if you’re playing with friends, and Funimation vows to release new content for it every month.
“Fresh from the launch of the new season of My Hero Academia, Funimation is committed to delighting fans on more platforms and in more ways than ever, and The Strongest Hero allows them to enjoy the franchise’s characters, content and one another on the go,” said Mitchel Berger, Senior Vice President of Global Commerce for the Funimation Global Group. “Excitement in My Hero Academia is at all all-time high, and it’s the perfect time to bring fans a new mobile gaming experience for the first time ever outside of Asia.”
For fans of the anime, My Hero Academia: The Strongest Hero will arrive on the Apple App Store and Google Play this spring.
Elsewhere in gaming, EA is also launching a mobile title for its Battlefield franchise.
