One Punch Man: A Hero Nobody Knows’ New Trailer Explains Saitama’s Hero Arrival System



Bandai Namco released a new trailer for One Punch Man: A Hero Nobody Knows at Gamescom 2019. In addition to revealing Terrible Tornado, Silver Fang, and Atomic Samurai, we learn more about Saitama.


Saitama doesn’t care about the hero rankings, but he promises to always arrive, eventually. In One Punch Man: A Hero Nobody Knows, the series’ protagonist Saitama is part of what’s called the “Hero Arrival System” where you’ll play as the likes of Genos and attempt to survive long enough for Saitama to arrive. The better you fight, the faster Saitama will join the battle.


In Free Battle Mode, players will fight in teams of up to three characters. The goal will be to defeat each enemy combatant, whilst selecting the right character at the right time to stand as the victor.

In order to harness Saitama’s insane strength, the game will also introduce a unique concept in this mode—The Hero Arrival System.

Players will have to meet a number of criteria if they want to play as the strongest hero. In order to make Saitama selectable, they will need to choose two fighters first. When the fight begins Saitama’s team will have to survive until his arrival despite the numerical disadvantage. Combos or perfect guards will remove time on the counter. When the Caped Baldy finally enters battle, one punch should be enough to pacify any situation!

Three additional characters have also been confirmed to be part of the final roster, respectively 2nd, 3rd, and 4th of the S-class ranking:

  • Terrible Tornado: An Esper wielding psychic powers capable of crushing displays of power.
  • Silverfang: Beneath his old man appearance lies a seasoned martial art expert.
  • Atomic Samurai: He is regarded as Earth’s best sword master and one of the strongest heroes, even within the S-rank class.


One Punch Man: A Hero Nobody Knows is in development for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC via Steam.
