For those unaware of the series, One Punch Man follows the story of Saitama, a man that has trained so hard that he can defeat every villain he comes across with just one punch. Because of this immense strength, Saitama has become bored and frustrated that he can defeat all his foes so easily. Initially starting as a web-comic, the series was then adapted into manga form and later became an anime series. The show is currently airing its second season.
This isn’t the first game based on One Punch Man, as Saitama and the gang are set to appear in the upcoming mobile game, One Punch Man: Road To Hero, but it will be the first game to appear on consoles.
One Punch Man: A Hero Nobody Knows is set to be released on PS4, Xbox One, and PC. A released date has yet to be revealed.
