One Punch Man fighting game is officially in development as Bandai Namco released the first trailer. It will be interesting to see how they balance it out since it doesn't really do Saitama any justice if you lose a match with him.

One Punch Man fans are going to be either delighted or terrified at the news that a fighting game is in development. Considering the restrictions imposed by Saitama's apparent invincibility, limitless power and incredible speed, it is hard to imagine any fighter in the universe beating him.

Still, if One Punch Man: A Hero Nobody Knows is going to be a fighting game, Saitama's defeats are inevitable, even at the hands of Mumen Rider. Maybe he will ride his bicycle into a mosquito breeding facility and bring a pile of them to give the bald hero the equivalent of hell on Earth.

Other than Saitama and Mumen Rider, the trailer above confirmed Genos, Hell's Blizzard (Fubuki) and Speed-O'-Sound Sonic as playable characters.

PC players will not get to play One Punch Man: A Hero Nobody Knows or at least not immediately since the trailer only confirmed Xbox One and PlayStation releases. Maybe the master race members will need to do 100 pushups, 100 sit-ups, 100 squats and a 10 kilometre run before they get their chance.

Even console players outside Japan will have to wait a while though - One Punch Man game has only been announced in the land of the rising sun. Release dates are unknown for the entire world but it's not excluded that Japan will get it first.

The combat shown is highly reminiscent of that in Dragon Ball FighterZ so be aware you might see some similarities. There is currently no word on whether or what kind of story mode the game will have. It is quite possible there will be an intricate plot line since Bandai Namco don't really shy away from these.
