Bandai Namco has released the debut trailer and gameplay for My Hero Academia: Ultra Rumble, its newly announced free-to-play, 24-player battle royale game.

The closed beta test will feature the following 12 playable characters: Izuku Midoriya, Katsuki Bakugo, Ochaco Uraraka, Shoto Todoroki, Tsuyu Asui, Cementoss, All Might, Mt. Lady, Tomura Shigaraki, Dabi, Himiko Toga, and Mr. Compress.
Here is an overview of the game’s systems, via its official website:
Quirk and Cooperate
We’re here! A 24-player, team-based, My Hero Academia battle royale!
Fight to survive to the bitter end in an eight-team battle royale with three players per team.
24-Player Battle Royale
Utilize each character’s “Quirk” in combat!
Each character’s strengths—such as offense, support, and disruption—are completely different depending on their “Quirk.” Utilize their strengths and make up for their weaknesses to survive the fierce fight.
Collect the Skill Cards scattered throughout the stage to vastly strengthen your Quirk Skills. Which Quirk Skills you improve is up to you.
The Skill Cards supported by each character vary. Collecting each other’s Skill Cards and strengthening the team as a whole is the key to victory.
Become a Hero or Villain
Citizens who were unable to escape are scattered across the map. With Heroes rescuing citizens and Villains attacking them, doing what they excel in will bring benefits to the whole team.
A release date for My Hero Academia: Ultra Rumble has yet to be announced. It will be available for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Switch, and PC via Steam.
