Bandai Namco Entertainment America recently started a stream in which we got the new trailer of One-Punch Man: A Hero Nobody Knows on Monday. In that stream, it was revealed to us that a closed beta test for the game will run from November 1-3 and those who want to register, and the registration is available until 16 October.
One-Punch Man: A Hero Nobody Knows is a three-on-three action-fighting game, in which players form teams of three characters to take on an opposing team. There is a system that is quite interesting. When a player chooses the main protagonist Saitama, the characters must survive long enough for him to arrive through the Hero Arrival System.
If the player performs well with only just two characters that game will decrease the amount of time it will take for Saitama to arrive. The player roster for the game was previously revealed which includes quite a lot of characters. The list of characters that we know so far includes Saitama, Genos, Hellish Blizzard, Speed-o’-Sound Sonic, Mumen Rider, Vaccine Man, Deep Sea King, Mosquito Girl, Carnage Kabuto, Terrible Tornado, Silverfang, and Atomic Samurai. This game is based on the Yūsuke Murata’s One-Punch Man manga aired in Japan from October to December 2015.
Its first season was handled by Madhouse and director by Shingo Natsume. The season had only 12 episodes. Both Viz Media and Daisuki streamed the series outside of Japan when it aired. The first season premiered with an English dub on Adult Swim’s Toonami block in July 2016. As for Viz Media, they released the first season on home video in North America.
One Punch man second two aired recently with a television special on 2 April and then the first episode premiered on 9 April. The master license was acquired by Viz Media for the second anime season, including digital streaming, TV broadcast, electronic sell-through, home media, and merchandising rights for North America, Latin America, and Oceania.
