The game will apparently feature three-versus-three battles but the details around the story weren’t shared for now. It wasn’t confirmed it the game will follow the manga or create its own filler based on the same characters.
The release date has been listed as “coming soon” while the confirmed platforms, for now, are PS4, Xbox One, and PC. It wasn’t announced if Nintendo Switch owners will also get the game just like My Hero Academia, which launched on both PS4 and Nintendo Switch.
