One-Punch Man is an incredibly popular anime and manga series that focuses on a "hero for fun" named Saitama. After all these years, there's a One-Punch Man game in the works called One-Punch Man: A Hero Nobody Knows. While the title is expected to launch in 2020, it keeps on getting new trailers and other information.

The trailer focuses on the fighting, which looks quite spectacular, but also the exploration aspect of the game. It seems like you'll be able to play through a major part of the anime's story, while interacting with a variety of characters. In many ways, it's like Dragon Ball Z: Kakarot.

If you can't wait to get your hands on the game, you'll be happy to know that a closed beta is coming at the beginning of November for a couple of days. You can sign up for it here.

One-Punch Man is a unique series because it focuses on a hero who's so powerful that he can defeat anyone in one punch. However, this leads to boredom so he's always trying to find a challenge.
