WATCH: ‘One-Punch Man’ becoming a video game fighter

/ 08:05 PM June 30, 2019

Hit animé action spoof “One-Punch Man” is undergoing a video game conversion courtesy of animé and fighting game publisher Bandai Namco, with a trailer available to watch now and a full release coming soon.

“One Punch Man: A Hero Nobody Knows” is a three-on-three fighting game that features the cartoon’s hero, Saitama, alongside some of his allies and enemies.

As with Bandai’s plentiful “Dragon Ball Z”, “Naruto” and “One Piece” conversions, the “One-Punch Man” game retains the visual style of its inspiration. Spike Chunsoft of “One Piece: Burning Blood” and “Jump Force” is helping develop the adaptation.

Bandai Namco has indicated that “One Punch Man: A Hero Nobody Knows” is “coming soon,” suggesting a release in the second half of 2019 is on the cards.


Based on a manga comic of the same name, “One-Punch Man” made its Japanese debut late in 2015, with an English language version arriving mid-2016.

Fans had to wait three and a half years for season two, which began airing in Japan in April 2019 and is to conclude on July 2.

Given that Saitama gained his superhero status by dedicating himself to a daily regimen of 100 push-ups, sit-ups and squats, with a 10 kilometer run to finish things off, “One-Punch Man” has also inspired a cohort of fitness programs, such as the One Punch Man Challenge popularized by Singaporean investor Sean Seah. RGA/JB
