It’s been a very good year for anime in gaming, with the successful release of several popular Shōnen series games including Dragon Ball Fighter Z and Black Clover: Quartet Knights. My Hero One’s Justice is the latest Shōnen game to come out and it has been one crazy gaming experience. Based on the popular superhero manga series of the same name, its colourful cast of heroes and villains lends itself well to a fast paced fighting game full of over-the-top attacks and dramatic finishes. It doesn’t quite reach the level of perfection fans such as myself expect, but for its first venture into the gaming world it makes for a solid entry.
In a nutshell, My Hero Ones Justice tells the tale of Izuku Midoriya while he attends UA Academy, a prestigious school for aspiring professional heroes. Born with a strong desire to help people, but without a quirk of his own, Midoriya is one day gifted an all mighty power, One For All, a quirk that will one day help him become the greatest hero in the world. This power, while practically unbeatable, is a double edged sword that damages him as its power is still too great to completely control. It serves as an obstacle that young Midoriya must overcome and make his own so that he may protect those in need of his help.
