Genthru Will Be Playable in Hunter x Hunter Nen x Impact

Ahead of any actual marketing for him, Justin Wong’s latest video for Hunter x Hunter Nen x Impact showed that Genthru will be one of the playable characters in the game. Like in the original series, Genthru will fight using his bombs.

The focus of the video is in the title. It mostly shows one of the developers of Hunter x Hunter Nen x Impact giving Wong the business. However, we can see in some of the matches that both players are using Genthru on top of the roster we already saw in the demo build. Granted, in the video itself, we don’t really see Genthru that often. Both players seem to prefer using characters like Leorio, Hisoka, and Netero.

In Hunter x Hunter, Genthru was one of the major antagonists of the Greed Island arc. Though he starts out as a nice and friendly person, he eventually reveals his more treacherous and murderous side. For years, he was secretly killing players in order to emerge as the victor and win Battera’s prize.

Hunter x Hunter Nen x Impact is a 3v3 2D fighting game in which you control various characters from the titular anime and manga series. Bushiroad had already announced that a demo build of the game will be at EVO Japan 2024 and KSG2024. Based on the previous announcement though, the demo will only have six characters available to play. You might not be able to play as Genthru.

Hunter x Hunter Nen x Impact will come out on the PS5, Nintendo Switch, and Windows PC via Steam.
