A look at "Free Battle" mode.

One Punch Man: A Hero Nobody Knows

Publisher Bandai Namco and developer Spike Chunsoft have released the second character trailer for One Punch Man: A Hero Nobody Knows, which confirms Terrible Tornado, Silverfang, and Atomic Samurai as playable characters, as well as details the game’s “Free Battle” mode.

Here are the details, via Bandai Namco:

In Free Battle Mode, players will fight in teams of up to three characters. The goal will be to defeat each enemy combatant, whilst selecting the right character at the right time to stand as the victor.

In order to harness Saitama’s insane strength, the game will also introduce a unique concept in this mode—The Hero Arrival System.

Players will have to meet a number of criteria if they want to play as the strongest hero. In order to make Saitama selectable, they will need to choose two fighters first. When the fight begins Saitama’s team will have to survive until his arrival despite the numerical disadvantage. Combos or perfect guards will remove time on the counter. When the Caped Baldy finally enters battle, one punch should be enough to pacify any situation!

Three additional characters have also been confirmed to be part of the final roster, respectively 2nd, 3rd, and 4th of the S-class ranking:

  • Terrible Tornado: An Esper wielding psychic powers capable of crushing displays of power.
  • Silverfang: Beneath his old man appearance lies a seasoned martial art expert.
  • Atomic Samurai: He is regarded as Earth’s best sword master and one of the strongest heroes, even within the S-rank class.

One Punch Man: A Hero Nobody Knows is in development for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC. A release date has yet to be announced.
