Is There a My Hero Academia Battle Royale Game Confirmed?
My Hero Academia Ultra Rumble first details revealed
My Hero Academia is one of the most popular shonen anime of these last few years, and already got several game adaptations, but is a battle royale game in the works?
Battle royale games and media have always been popular especially in Japan after the Battle Royale movie in early 2000s. With the Fortnite boom a few years ago, several anime series got their own battle royale games as well. Such as JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure: Last Survivor, an arcade game and battle royale exclusive to Japan. So it wouldn’t be surprising if a popular series like My Hero Academia got the same treatment.
