Along with the game’s announcement, Crunchyroll Games released a gameplay trailer that gave us a first look at the game. As far as we can see, One Punch Man: World will be action-packed. The trailer shows the game’s heroes taking on villains of various shapes and sizes.
We have to admit that the fights looked cool and exciting, especially considering the powers on display that were brought to life by special effects.

Among other things, you can take advantage of discounts and special offers, play games in the Gaming Center and take a walk around the city.
Next to the trailer there is a short description of the game. It states: “A sinister wave of monster attacks has pressured the cities of Earth and the Heroes’ Association. But after three years of special training, Saitama has become so powerful that he can defeat opponents with a single blow.”
The synopsis continues: “The thing is, Saitama does the hero thing just for fun, but when every enemy goes down in one hit, overwhelming power can be kind of… boring. Now before the relaxed strongest hero.” , a new enemy appears. Will he be able to show his full power today?”
