One Punch Man: A Hero Nobody Knows Punches Its Way Onto the Scene in February

One Punch Man: A Hero Nobody Knows comes to PC, PS4, and Xbox One February 28 announces developer Bandai Namco.

One Punch Man: A Hero Nobody Knows is an upcoming fighting game from Spike Chunsoft and Bandai Namco. The game features a property-appropriate gimmick that sees you not fighting to win the battle, but instead waste enough time for Saitama to make it to the fight and save the day. It’s a bit odd, but suits the series well. Today, Bandai Namco has finally revealed when fans will be able to try out this interesting new 3v3 fighter. A Hero Nobody Knows will come to PC, PS4, and Xbox One early next year. Give the announcement trailer a watch below.

Bandai Namco loves putting out their new fighting games in the early parts of the year. Both Dragon Ball FighterZ and Jump Force have launched in the same window to varying degrees of success. It seems like the publisher has targeted that early period as the “fighting game season”. And it makes sense to me as someone who barely plays fighting games, but likes to watch them. Releasing earlier in the year gives you a good window to build up community support ahead of things like EVO. This is something FighterZ did to perfection in 2018.

That said, the release date wasn’t the only news included in the new trailer. Bandai Namco also revealed a few more fighters coming to One Punch Man: A Hero Nobody Knows. Metal Knight, Stinger, and Melzargard have joined the fray. Plus, Dream Version Saitama, who is just Saitama in his pajamas, is going to be a playable character.

One Punch Man: A Hero Nobody Knows comes to PC, PS4, and Xbox One on February 28. I can’t wait to see if the quirky new mechanics play out in a way that makes the game stand out in the crowded fighting game space.
