During the Bandai Namco Entertainment Summer Showcase panel at Anime Expo 2022, developer Bandai Namco showed a brand-new trailer for the previously announced My Hero Academia: Ultra Rumble game, the first-ever free-to-play battle royale.
The trailer showcased an English dub, implying that the title will be coming to the West, though no release date was given. According to the producer, who also helped produce the My Hero Academia: One’s Justice game, Ultra Rumble will also be available with a closed beta that will be happening in mid-August, and players can register for it via this website.
UPDATE: The website link is now working, and it confirms that the Closed Beta will be for PlayStation 4 systems only, and will run in two phases, with the first phase rolling out on August 17 at 7:00 p.m. PT, and ending on Aug. 18 at 3:00 a.m. PT. The second phase starts on August 18 at 7:00 p.m. PT and ends on August 21 at 11:00 a.m. PT.
My Hero Academia: Ultra Rumble is a battle royale game where players will join one of eight three-player teams as Heroes or Villains as they battle on expansive citywide maps. By controlling classic My Hero characters, fans can make the most of their Quirks to attack enemies and cooperate with their team to survive fights. Players can also contribute to their team’s victory by rescuing or intimidating civilians on the field to obtain powerful items that can determine the outcome of the battle. My Hero Academia: Ultra Rumble will be free to play, and it will be available on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, and PC via Steam.
