Bandai Namco Entertainment announces One-Punch Man: A Hero Nobody Knows

Bandai Namco Entertainment revealed on Wednesday that it is developing a game based on the One-Punch Man franchise titled One-Punch Man: A Hero Nobody Knows. The game will ship for the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One in Japan, and Bandai Namco Entertainment America will release the game in English for the PS4, Xbox One, and PC.

Bandai Namco Entertainment America describes the game as a three-on-three action-fighting game that will allow players to control characters such as Saitama, Genos, Hellish Blizzard, Speed-o'-Sound Sonic, Mumen Rider, and others.

Madhouse and director Shingo Natsume's first 12-episode anime season based on ONE and Yūsuke Murata's One-Punch Man manga aired in Japan from October-December 2015. Viz Media and Daisuki both streamed the series outside of Japan as it aired. The anime premiered with an English dub on Adult Swim's Toonami block in July 2016. Viz Media released the first season on home video in North America.

The new season began with a television special on April 2, then the first episode premiered on October 9. Viz Media acquired the master license to the second anime season, including digital streaming, TV broadcast, electronic sell-through, home media, and merchandising rights for North America, Latin America and Oceania. The company is streaming the show as a Hulu exclusive. Crunchyroll is streaming the series in Europe, excluding French- and German-speaking Europe, and in the Middle East and North Africa.
