One Punch Man – The Strongest is an official turn-based strategy mobile RPG based on the best-selling Japanese anime series One Punch Man. It officially launched in the US and EU regions on September 22. Players can relive the greatest moments from the anime, build a team of its best characters, and fight alongside Saitama to dominate the battlefield.
To share more about why One Punch Man – The Strongest is worthy of a download for old and new fans alike, we’ve broken down why this game looks just as wonderful as one of Saitama’s punches below.
An Authentic One Punch Man Experience That Stays Faithful to the Anime
One Punch Man is a story about Saitama, a normal man who became so strong in his training that he grew bored of being one of the most powerful heroes around. Despite the world being filled with incredibly strong and menacing villains, Saitama is usually able to take out these foes with just one punch.
One Punch Man – The Strongest is an adaptation of the anime, and its development has been supervised by the production committee including SHUEISHA. Players will meet fan-favorite characters from C-Class all the way to S-Class and fight against and alongside villains, like Carnage Kabuto and Boros. Furthermore, the game will feature the same voice cast as the anime.
Build a Winning Team of Over 60 One Punch Man Heroes and Villains
One Punch Man – The Strongest allows players to build a team of over 60 heroes and villains
from the anime, including Genos, Terrible Tornado, Hellish Blizzard, Speed-o’-Sound Sonic, Mosquito Girl, Carnage Kabuto, and Boros.
Each hero and villain will have their own type (Esper, Grappler, Duelist, Hi-Tech, etc.), faction (Hero, Villain, Outlaw), tier (SSR+, SSR, SR, R, N), and special abilities. These categories will give you the tools to know how to mix and match characters for a winning combination of six. Of course, there is nothing stopping you from simply picking your favorites to create your very own all-star team. Players can evolve their heroes to
keep them at their strongest alongside upgrading gear and more.
Saitama will swoop in to help out from time to time by performing his famous one-punch to take down enemies and help earn rewards for your team
One Punch Man – The Strongest Turn-Based Strategic Battle Are Easy to Grasp and a Joy to Master
After you assemble your One Punch Man dream team, you will take them into turn-based strategic battles that are built to challenge and excite players of all skill levels. The key to winning a battle will be utilizing your team’s special abilities and special formation buffs, and making sure your team is composed of the right players – tanks, supports, etc.
Speed and Core Skills could also mean the difference between victory and defeat, as they dictate how the battle will flow. The overall Speed stat determines who goes first and gets the upper hand early on. Speedy characters like Genos can put you in a position to win. Core Skills are another important factor in battle, as they are abilities that improve your whole team after they meet certain role types and quantity requirements. This could appear in the form of Damage Reflection, Burn, Back-Row Targeting, and more.
As a battle progresses, players fill up the One Punch Gauge. Once filled, they can choose to use Saitama’s one-punch once per battle to defeat any enemy, and this should be used in combination with normal and ultimate skills.
One Punch Man – The Strongest Is Much More Than a Single-Player Story, It’s Also A Multiplayer Adventure
While building a team to take down the game’s story is meant to be a fun adventure that will last for hours, One Punch Man – The Strongest also features multiplayer modes that will test your might against friends and others around the world. From Unnatural Disaster to Boss Challenge to Extreme Training to Hero X Villain, there are a multitude of modes waiting to be explored and unlocked as you progress through the game.
As for Saitama, players will interact with him in more ways than simply calling him in to do his legendary
punch. There are Saitama Quests that will have you fill his daily training schedule, an Investigation Mode that teams you up with Saitama on a quest to discover the city’s Mystery Vaults and Saitama Memories that will grant you huge bonuses should you find them.
Players can also join a Club with friends, play mini games like: Trap the Ninja, Missile Test, and Slingshot Barrage, and undertake patrols to explore new regions and stop villains and criminals who are set on causing chaos to the world.
One Punch Man – The Strongest is available now on iOS and Android and thanks to over one million pre-registrations, all new players will receive the following for downloading the game – free 1st 10 draws, an Old Hand Avatar & Appearance Frame, and hundreds of gems. Additionally, those who log in consecutively during the first week will be able to get over 40 additional draws, the A-Class hero Iairon, and a character of their choice.
