Right after the first post-announcement trailer for One Punch Man: A Hero Nobody Knows’ revealed confirmation that additional of four more characters to the game. Saitama himself and other characters were already to be part of the squad, though the newest trailer focuses on the villains that you’ll encounter. Vaccine Man, Mosquito Girl, Carnage Kabuto, and Deep Sea King were all confirmed to be in the game. Furthermore, each of them coming out with their own movesets and witticism when fighting Saitama and other heroes.
Bandai Namco picked a fitting spot to unveil the new trailer when it revealed it during Anime Expo 2019. The process of revealing characters this fashion falls in line with how Bandai Namco usually did its character unveilings in other games like ‘Jump Force’ and ‘Dragon Ball FighterZ’ where more of the characters were added periodically. So, expect more trailers like this to reveal in the coming days’ as characters are ready.
Bandai Namco has a lot on their minds
The game was originally to come towards the end of June, with a trailer that revealed Saitama and only a few other characters. A 3v3 battle system is the format of the game. Though, there is one doubt that’s still on the minds of the fans and those looking forward to play the game is, how the other fighters will even have a chance against Saitama. The whole crux of the show is that it only takes one punch for the hero to overpower his opponents. And, while we see other heroes and villains taking a beating in the trailer, the protagonist doesn’t seem phased by the attacks at all. In fact, Saitama literally shows the typical pale face, which he always has, even after getting hit. His character model might be on the downside, a bit, but he doesn’t flinch, ever.
It remains in the dark how Saitama will be playable against the other characters, but it’s more likely that we’ll see more of these fighters in the game before we figure that out. The game does not have a release date yet, but it should have come out by now. But when it does, it is to come in these platforms- PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC platforms.
