Bandai Namco has been sharing steady updates for My Hero One’s Justice 2 since it was announced back in October. While some of those updates have been about the game’s mechanics and modes, many have been about the fighting game’s growing roster.
Today, the developer and publisher released a double-whammy: news about a brand-new character and a new game mode. The news comes from Weekly Jump (via Gematsu).
Currently the No. 12 pro hero, Gang Orca joins the My Hero One’s Justice 2 roster. Closely aligning with his persona in both the My Hero manga and anime, Gang Orca is a powerful and resilient fighter. He utilizes “high-reach ranged attacks,” according to Gematsu. The sometimes-villain also employs “combos starting with an unblockable attack.”
Weekly Jump also revealed that My Hero One’s Justice 2 will feature an arcade mode. The mode will reportedly feature “three routes for each character and rewards the player with designs for winning six battles in a row.” However, it is not known exactly how long the arcade mode is and how many tiers it will feature.
It also seems this mode will launch with the game. While My Hero One’s Justice featured and arcade mode, it was added to the game via a launch-day patch. Previously, Bandai Namco revealed that My Hero One’s Justice 2 will also feature a 2v2 mode, as well as a mission mode employing light RPG elements, allowing players to upgrade heroes. Of course, there will be a story mode as well.
Catch up on other announced characters in the game’s recent character trailer, which also showcases some of their ultra skills and quirks. My Hero One’s Justice 2 is set to release on March 13 for the PC, PS4, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch.
