Terrible Tornado, Silverfang, Atomic Samurai join fighting game

Bandai Namco Entertainment America began streaming the second character trailer for the One-Punch Man: A Hero Nobody Knows game on Tuesday. The video reveals the S-class heroes Terrible Tornado, Silverfang, and Atomic Samurai, and it also highlights the new Hero Arrival System.

In the three-on-three action-fighting game, players form teams of three characters to take on an opposing team. If they choose Saitama, characters must survive long enough for him to arrive through the Hero Arrival System. By performing well in battle with only two characters, players can decrease the amount of time it will take for Saitama to arrivel

Previously confirmed characters include Saitama, Genos, Hellish Blizzard, Speed-o'-Sound Sonic, Mumen Rider, Vaccine Man, Deep Sea King, Mosquito Girl, and Carnage Kabuto.

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 April 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.
