The upcoming game will be released in Japan two months earlier on August 23rd, 2018.

If you count the characters in the list above, there are only 19 characters listed. That’s because the final and 20th character will be a pre-order bonus.

The game will feature a unique gameplay feature where players will have to choose one main fighter and two sidekicks. These sidekicks will unleash their Quirks (abilities) when summoned, as well as utilize special combos with different fighters. Players will also be able to customize their fighters with cosmetic items and participate in an online mode.

The game’s Story Mode will also let players relive their favorite moments from the manga and anime, as well as original scenarios specifically made for the game. The developer has also included a Villain Mode, where you can replay the Story Mode through the perspective of the villains. This can be unlocked after completing the Story Mode as a hero.
