First MHA Console Title Created with Existing Fans in Mind

This game begins during what would be the second season of the My Hero Academia anime and ends during the third season with the All Might vs All for One fight. Because of this, if the player has not seen the anime (seasons 1-3) the story might be a bit confusing. This game was made for existing fans of MHA in mind. If you go into this game expecting it to live up to the anime perfectly, it doesn't. The story cuts here and shifts there and feels quite choppy. The purpose of this game is not to tell the plot all that clearly, but to thrust the player into battling MHA villains/heroes one on one like any other brawl-type game. Don't expect there to be any post-season 3 characters in this game. As far as content warnings go, the violence is a bit tamer than the anime, honestly, and there's very little blood in this game. Maybe just a couple of screenshots of a bloodied hero. The language in the story mode happens a number of times, mostly just 'damn', and 'ass' (maybe hell?) from the edgy UA student with explosion powers, Bakugo Katsuki. All Might does say 'holy s***'. But again none of that is new if you've seen the show. Nothing sexual at all in this game. Mineta is not playable so no worries there. This game would have gotten a higher review from me if the story mode would have began with season 1 (we missed out on All Might vs Nomu?) so I'm going to have to give it a 3-star review. 3/5.

This title has:

Too much swearing
age 12+


The game is only rated T (For teen) because of the language (the words sh*t and a**hole are sometimes said) the violence is about 5/10 there is mild blood but its to over the top to be taken seriously by anyone over the age of 10 and as for sex the character Momo Yaoyorozu has large breasts and her costume shows cleavage and another female character Himiko Toga has a short skirt but any kid who has seen Sailor Moon should be fine with that. So this game is good for anyone 12+

This title has:

Great messages
Great role models
Easy to play/use
Too much swearing

Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (2 ):
Kids say (14 ):

With engaging gameplay, this fun anime brawler manages to answer the eternal kid question of wanting to grow up with some sort of cool superpower. In My Hero One's Justice, kids are trained to become the next generation of superheroes. The gameplay pits heroes and villains against one another in fast-paced and frantic combat that looks like its pulled straight from the anime. Although on the surface, the controls seem a lot more basic than most fighters, once you get the hang of things, like timing and positioning, it quickly becomes clear that this brawler has plenty of "Quirks" all its own. There's just something oddly fun about knocking a foe into the sky or into a wall before continuing the battle on the side of the building. Sure, it can be a little disorienting to keep track of all the action, but it genuinely feels like what a comic book fight would be like.

My Hero One's Justice is packed with content tailor-made for fans of the series. The main story mode provides a solid recap of Izuku Midoriya's quest to become the world's greatest hero, but it's even more interesting to see how those same events played out through the palm-covered eyes of League of Villains leader Tomura Shigaraki. It makes for a unique twist on a familiar tale and shows how perspective can cause someone to rewrite their own story. Speaking of writing your own story, the customization options give fans a chance to tweak their favorite My Hero Academia characters, adding a bit of a personal flair to the experience. And the Mission mode's objective-based gauntlet makes for a solid test of skills and determination. One glaring item that's missing, though, is the lack of additional voice-over options. While purists might not mind too much, it's likely to be a bit jarring for those more familiar with the characters from the English language dubs currently airing on television. Still, the story's easy to follow, and My Hero One's Justice is unquestionably faithful to its source.
