My Hero One's Justice 2 is a continuation of the 2018 3D fighting game based on the My Hero Academia manga and its anime adaptation, in which superheroes battle villains. The second game, same as the previous one, was developed by the Japanese studio Byking in cooperation with Bandai Namco Entertainment.
My Hero One's Justice 2 is a continuation of the events presented by its predecessor. The game series is based on the My Hero Academia manga and its animated adaptation, broadcast since 2016. The action of the game takes place in a contemporary rendition of Japan invented by Kohei Horikoshi, in which characters are endowed with supernatural powers. In the second part, the presented events reach up to the fourth season of the anime. We are dealing with a title intended mainly for the veterans of the show, who not only know the outline of manga or anime, but also the previous part of the game. The characters from the previous installment return in the sequel, but the list was extended by completely new ones, such as Kai Chisaki, Mirio Togata, Tamaki Amajiki, Nejire Hado or Mina Ashido.
The protagonist of the story is again Izuku Midoriya, who was one of the (un)lucky people born without any special power. By fate, he receives it from the legendary warrior Toshinori Yagi, also known as All Might. As in the previous game, we get to knownt the fate of not only superheroes, but also their opponents, all in the form of film cut-scenes on the game engine and narrative scenes straight from visual novels.
My Hero One's Justice 2 has not changed significantly compared to its predecessor. It consists mainly of battling opponents in closed arenas (the number of which has increased in the sequel). The whole thing has a very arcade character. Duels take place in a one-on-one system, but before they start we can select two other characters to support the main fighter, each with a unique set of abilities and special attacks. The combat itself has been improved and, as a result, it has become not only more pleasant, but also more developed. The changes, on the other hand, did not occur in the interaction with elements of the environment - they can still be destroyed, which adds to spectacularity of combat.
Character roster is not limited to Izuku Midoriyi. We can also play as Mirio Togata, Katsuki Bakugo, Shoto Todoroki, Eijiro Kirishima, Inasa Yoarashi and Jiro Momo. With the new characters we have access to new powers (so-called quirks), so that the gameplay is even more diverse.
The game modes remain unchanged. My Hero One's Justice 2 offers an extensive single player story campaign that uses film cut-scenes to follow the story. The second one is the classic arcade mode, where we can train and unlock new items. There is also an online mode for lovers of challenging players from all over the world.
My Hero One's Justice 2 is powered by Unreal Engine 4 and features a very colorful, cartoonish visuals. It is ideally suited for the vibe of a game based on manga and anime. What's more, the voices of the characters were provided by actors known from the animation.
