One punch man’s first season aired in Japan around October 5, 2015 and December 21, 2015. Now, the first ever console game based on this animated series is coming to PS4, Xbox One, and PC! You can watch the official announcement trailer on Bandai Namco’s youtube channel below.
In the description of the video, they mention that its a 3v3 fighting game. Not much is mentioned other than some of the playable characters such as Saitama, Genos, and Mumen Rider. Get ready to enjoy battling with your friends in One Punch Man’s first console game, One Punch Man: A Hero Nobody Knows!

Our Take
I always enjoy seeing games based off anime being developed. Fighting games are great and always interesting to play with friends to see what characters they choose. It always starts some good discussions or.. arguments about what characters are better. Also, being able to see your favorite characters in a different environment can take you back to reminisce on your favorite parts of the anime, especially when the art in the game is transfered nicely from manga/anime to game. Taking a look at the trailer video here, I really like the pop out texts. Makes me feel like they want the game to feel like you imagine it in the Manga. Since One Punch man is pretty popular, its nice to see it getting a game.
