There are several mediums you can experience the world of My Hero Academia in….books, television. Now you can add phones to that list as Funimation and Sony prepare to launch a new mobile game based on the property, My Hero Academia: The Strongest Hero.
This third-person adventure will allow fans to step into the roles of Midoriya / Deku and other characters…Bakugo, Todoroki, All Might and Endeavor are mentioned in Funi’s press info. It’ll also be possible to play as villains like Stain. You can assemble your own team to take on guys like like Shigaraki and Nomu (who I guess aren’t playable) in story mode, challenge other players in PVP mode, or take on the Allied Assault in co-op mode. If your personal favorite character isn’t in the game at launch, more characters and content are planned for the months ahead.
“We’re incredibly excited to bring fans the first ever My Hero Academia mobile game available outside Asia,” says Paul Joffe, VP of Games at Sony Pictures Television Games. “The game is beautiful, immersive and filled with action and heroes.”
“Fresh from the launch of the new season of My Hero Academia, Funimation is committed to delighting fans on more platforms and in more ways than ever, and The Strongest Hero allows them to enjoy the franchise’s characters, content and one another on the go,” said Mitchel Berger, Senior Vice President of Global Commerce for the Funimation Global Group. “Excitement in My Hero Academia is at all all-time high, and it’s the perfect time to bring fans a new mobile gaming experience for the first time ever outside of Asia.”
My Hero Academia: The Strongest Hero will be out on mobile devices later this spring.
