One Punch Man: World Announced by Crunchyroll Games

Crunchyroll Games is teaming up with Perfect World, the developer of Tower of Fantasy and Persona 5: The Phantom X, to announce One Punch Man: World. This year, aspiring gaming heroes can jump into a world-class multiplayer action game based on the global anime hit One-Punch Man on Windows PC, iOS, and Android with cross-platform play and progression. Pre-registration for Windows PC is now open on the Official Website in the U.S., Canada, United Kingdom, Ireland, Australia, New Zealand and South Africa as well as in Latin America, and the Nordics.*

“The most ambitious Crunchyroll Games title to date, One Punch Man: World is an immersive online action game that transports players into the universe of One-Punch Man,” said Terry Li, General Manager of Crunchyroll Games and Senior Vice President of Emerging Business, Crunchyroll. “The game, developed by Perfect World, brings iconic characters and abilities to life with premiere production values that we are excited to unleash on anime fans and gamers.”

Heroes are needed in One Punch Man: World! A sinister wave of monster attacks has left Earth’s cities and the Hero Association under duress. However, after three years of special training, Saitama has become so powerful that he can defeat opponents with a single punch. The thing is, Saitama just does the hero thing for fun, but when every enemy goes down in one punch, overwhelming power can be kind of… boring. Now, in front of the laid-back strongest hero, a new enemy appears. Will he be able to show his full power today?

  • Unlock and level up fan-favorite heroes from the One-Punch Man anime series, including Genos, and more.
  • Enter the Hero Association hub to meet friends, take on missions, and team up for raids against destructive foes with other players.
