The popular Weekly Shonen Jump manga series Boku no Hero Academia or My Hero Academia in English title is coming to the Western regions soon as a video game entitled My Hero One’s Justice. Otaku players will experience some of the fan-favorite characters in the series like Izuku “Deku” Midoriya, Katsuki “Katchan” Bakugo, All Might and other characters from the manga/anime series.
The game producer Aoba Miyazaki was featured in a PlayStation Blog post as he discussed the outcome of the adapting of the popular manga and anime series. My Hero One’s Justice is a fighting game as each character possesses quirks or superpower.
WARNING: THIS CONTAINS SPOILERS – There are some spoilers if you are not catching up on My Hero Academia.
According to Miyazaki, Toga was the most challenging character to adapt to a video game format. As you know, Toga’s quirk is to allow her to copy or to form another character. However, this kind of quirk is not good for an arena fight. She can’t copy her opponent’s Quirk. However, My Hero One’s Justice team found its way to solve the problem. This is resolved by making use of two sidekicks that she might bring to every fight.

Who was the most challenging character to adapt to a videogame format?
Miyazaki: The most challenging character was Toga. Toga is able to transform into the opponent, but we obviously didn’t want her to copy the opponent’s Quirk Attacks, as that would not be faithful to the original works.
But in a VS game, visually transforming wouldn’t be much of an added value. So what we did was think of how the sidekicks would react if there were two identical characters. That’s why Toga’s attacks while transformation is focused on using the “opponent’s sidekick”, assuming that they would be tricked on which side to be on.
