Bandai Namco Entertainment America announced on Wednesday that the martial artist Suiryu will join Bandai Namco Entertainment's One-Punch Man: A Hero Nobody Knows game as its first DLC character on Thursday. The company began streaming a character video for Suiryu.
The character pack will include special items and avatar parts. Players can also purchase a character pass that will include the first four DLC character packs.

In the three-on-three action-fighting game, players form teams of three characters to take on an opposing team.

By performing well in battle with only two characters, players can decrease the amount of time it will take for Saitama to arrive.
Playable characters include: Saitama, Genos, Hellish Blizzard, Speed-o'-Sound Sonic, Mumen Rider, Vaccine Man, Deep Sea King, Mosquito Girl, Carnage Kabuto, Terrible Tornado, Silverfang, Atomic Samurai, Tank-Top Master, Tank-Top Blackhole, Tank-Top Tiger, Metal Bat, Metal Knight, Puri-Puri Prisoner, Stinger, Snek, Melzargard, Child Emperor, Spring Mustachio, Amai Mask, Crablante, and Boros.
