Funimation has always been the premiere home for the heroes of My Hero Academia. But now, the superpowered Midoriya and his heroes-in-training classmates are on the move in a new mobile game from Sony Pictures Television (SPT) Games and Funimation. While the past games like My Hero One Justice have been a hit, the mobile space is the next step to letting fans step into the quirk-filled world. Based on the wildly popular anime series My Hero Academia on Funimation, My Hero Academia: The Strongest Hero allows fans to play their favorite characters from Class 1-A, including Midoriya, Bakugo, and Todoroki, pro heroes like All Might and Endeavor, and even villains like Stain.
In the game, players will be able to build their own team roster in story mode and take on classic villains like Shigaraki and Nomu. My Hero Academia: The Strongest Hero will also challenge other players in PVP or take on the Allied Assault in co-op mode. New content will be released every month, adding more of the players’ favorite heroes and villains.
“We’re incredibly excited to bring fans the first ever My Hero Academia mobile game available outside Asia,” said Paul Joffe, VP of Games at Sony Pictures Television Games. “The game is beautiful, immersive and filled with action and heroes.”
My Hero Academia: The Strongest Hero, which will be available to players beginning this spring, will be in English and accessible to fans in North America, Latin America, the United Kingdom, Ireland, Australia, New Zealand and Scandinavia. My Hero Academia: The Strongest Hero is age-rated 12+. The game contains in-app purchases. Gamers can sign up now at MyHeroGame.com.
“Fresh from the launch of the new season of My Hero Academia, Funimation is committed to delighting fans on more platforms and in more ways than ever, and The Strongest Hero allows them to enjoy the franchise’s characters, content and one another on the go,” said Mitchel Berger, Senior Vice President of Global Commerce for the Funimation Global Group. “Excitement in My Hero Academia is at all all-time high, and it’s the perfect time to bring fans a new mobile gaming experience for the first time ever outside of Asia.”
