Can you hold off your enemies before Saitama arrives?? One Punch Man: A Hero Nobody Knows is a new 3D fighting game by Bandai Namco and Spike Chunsoft. Building from the reveal back in June 2019, the Gamescom 2019 trailer further sheds light on certain gameplay mechanics, characters, and the 3V3 team battle modes.
Mechanics involving Saitama
Players must hold off enemies especially bosses and survive before Saitama arrives due to how he is always late and there will be a timer on how long it takes for him to arrive. What quickens the timer is how much you perfected a block/guard or performing perfect combos. Once he arrives, he won’t flinch and delivers one punch.. well that’s about it. It seems to be a new mechanic specially made for this Anime/Manga series.
Not sure if it applies to all combat as certain characters can definitely fend off on their own such as newly revealed Tatsumaki, Silver Fang, and Atomic Samurai with their own moves, abilities and finishing blows.
Other than that it is the reveal of Team battle 3v3 gameplay where players can choose 3 characters to fight on even grounds without waiting for Saitama. Players will be able to switch characters midway through combat to get the best out of the situation or combo.
You will have to wait for Saitama to arrive for PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC in 2020. Stay tuned for more info.
