My Hero Academia: Battle for All Gameplay Videos Preview Eijirō, Shōto
posted on by Kyle Hallmark
The video for Eijirō previews his gameplay mechanics based on his "Hardening" quirk. Although he is a slow fighter, Eijirō has strong offense and defense, and his "Red Blow" attack cannot be blocked when it is at full power. Additionally, players can hold down on the touch screen to fill Eijirō's "Hardening Gauge," which increases his defense and prevents flinching when it is full.
The video for Shōto previews his gameplay mechanics based on his "Fire and Ice" quirk, which allows him to use ice-based attacks such as ice spikes and ice walls to attack and restrict his opponent's movement. Players can also hold down on the touch screen to fill his "Fire and Ice Gauge." Holding down on one side will increase the fire half of the gauge, while the other side will increase the ice half. Filling the gauge with fire will increase Shōto's movement speed, while filling the gauge with ice will increase his attack power. The video also reveals that the next gameplay video will feature Momo Yaoyorozu.
The game will ship on May 19.
Each playable character in the game will have a side story that can be unlocked by beating the main story mode, as well as character customization options. The game's voice cast are reprising their roles from the currently airing television anime series.
In the game, players aim to become the "No. 1 hero," and the manga's characters will appear with their unique powers. The game will retail for 5,700 yen (about US$50). Those who purchase the first edition of the game will get two cards for the Boku no Hero Academia: Gekitotsu! Heroes Battle (My Hero Academia: Clash! Heroes Battle) arcade card game as well as a download code for a Nintendo 3DS theme.
