My Hero Academia is a free PS4 Battle Royale now

The latest in awful anime add-ons is My Hero Academia: Ultra Rumble, a free PlayStation 4 Battle Royale from Bandai Namco. However, this is not the 100-player spectacle you might expect: only 24 players will take it out into an ugly arena where you will be able to use each hero’s ‘Quirk’ in battle. To be fair, it sounds like it will lead to some interesting tactical gameplay decisions.

For example, you will be able to find skill cards scattered around the stage, enabling you to further specialize your character’s Quirk as your team requires. You will work in teams of three, so you will need to carefully coordinate with your friends to ensure that you all fill different roles on the battlefield. You can watch some gameplay footage as part of the trailer embedded above.

A closed beta test is scheduled between February 2 and February 6 in Japan, with 12 playable characters included: Izuku Midoriya, Katsuki Bakugo, Ochaco Uraraka, Shoto Todoroki, Tsuyu Asui, Cementoss, All Might, Mt. Lady, Tomura Shigaraki, Dabi, Himiko Toga and Mr. Compress. Probably a full release will follow, though there is nothing to say about when at the time of writing.
