My Hero Academia: Ultra Rumble debut gameplay and trailer; PS4 closed beta test set for February 2 to 6 in Japan​

First look at the free-to-play battle royale.

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 company is also accepting applications for a PlayStation 4 closed beta test that will run from February 2 to 6 in Japan. The registration cutoff date is January 28 at 18:00 JST.

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.

I just want a proper City of Heroes styled MMO in the MHA universe. Is that too much to ask?


Update: now releasing worldwide on PS, Xbox, Switch, & PC.


Will use the title "My Hero Ultra Rumble" and drop the My Hero Academia, as have a few European releases of the franchise before now. (I'm not sure if that was done in Europe because of a rights dispute? Or was the word "Academia" just too smarty-pants for videogamers?) There's a PS4 closed beta test happening in the near future, so if you have that platform, you may want to sign up and try it:
