August 22, 2019 – “I become bald and stronger!” Oasis Games Ltd, a leading global game publisher, today announced the launch of the highly anticipated mobile RPG, One-Punch Man: Road to Hero, the first officially authorized One-Punch Man mobile game in Western countries. Produced under the joint supervision of the original author ONE and Yusuke Murata and the animation production committee in close cooperation with the well-known Japanese art team, the highly authentic game is now available on the App Store with Google Play launching shortly. One-Punch Man: Road to Hero follows the plot of the original series and includes nearly every character, all voiced by the original anime actors and ready to accompany players in their journey to become a hero. Additional content from the second season wrapped is slated to come after launch.

One-Punch Man is a highly popular Japanese manga, written by ONE and illustrated by Yusuke Murata, that has sold over 20 million copies in Japan.  The manga tells the story of the protagonist Saitama who becomes a hero, losing his hair but gaining the greatest strength through strenuous workouts. Eventually, he joins the Hero Association with his disciple Genos and fights against various monsters, villains, and catastrophic events together with many other heroes. One-Punch Man: Road to Hero, which has attracted over 200,000 pre-registered players, is the first officially licensed mobile game of this renowned IP for Western countries. This makes it unique from any mobile game previously published in China as well as console games under the One-Punch Man IP.

One-Punch Man: Road to Hero faithfully reproduces the anime’s storyline, worldview, and character design. Players will collect and train characters and experience the power of all the heroes from the series. As players progress throughout the game, they can join Saitama in knocking out opponents, meeting other heroes, spending time in the hot spring, shopping in the supermarket, and jumping into the many special events waiting to be triggered. While Saitama doesn’t appear as a playable character, players can accumulate and exchange his mood value for his one punch and Combo Punches from the vending machine, allowing them to ask for Saitama’s help when it is most needed.

One-Punch Man: Road to Hero was created so loyal fans and players can battle, train, and collect characters on their own hero’s journey ,” said Jinyang Xu, Producer of One-Punch Man: Road to Hero at Oasis Games. “With Saitama as an ally, build the ultimate fighting team with complementary skills and prepare to immerse yourself in a fantastic combat experience with exciting storylines!”

The game provides a playground where players can live in the anime world to experience the superpowers of heroes and mysterious beings. Dozens of chapters allow anime fans to collect and play over 50 characters, monsters, and S-Class heroes while training them to become the strongest in the entire world.

In the One-Punch Man series, a new enemy appears in almost every episode, from Vaccine Man to Mosquito Girl and later characters such as Lord Boros. In One-Punch Man: Road to Hero, players can relive these battles in a turn-based mobile card RPG by forming their own heroic teams and fighting for justice! The game features multiple battle modes, and only by matching different card strengths can a truly powerful team be assembled. During battles, each character has a unique skill that can immediately launch an extra attack on the current enemy when activated. Collecting characters, building them up, and mixing and matching them for maximum effect is important, as is choosing when to unleash special powers in a battle. Come choose your own Road to Hero and rise to the top!
