After the successful release of My Hero One’s Justice and My Hero Academia Ultra Impact, My Hero Academia fans will be able to enjoy another new game title featuring their favorite anime, this time in an online battle royale.

My Hero Academia Ultra Rumble is currently in development, with a scheduled beta test coming up on PlayStation 4. It promises an exciting new experience where you’ll be able to use heroes’ quirks in a fast-paced environment!

What is My Hero Academia Ultra Rumble?

My Hero Academia Ultra Rumble is a free-to-play online battle royale comprising 24 players in each match.

Teaming up in a group of three, there will be eight squads competing against each other. According to the official Japanese website, cards will be available in the arena, which can be used to strengthen a hero’s quirk.

Working as a team will be the key to victory. Like any battle royale, the last team standing wins.

Game publishers Bandai Namco Entertainment will be conducting an open beta test from February 2 to 6, 2022 on PlayStation 4. 10,000 players in Japan are expected to participate.
