Along with the beta testing announcement, Bandai Namco also released a new trailer for One Punch Man: A Hero Nobody Knows, featuring the game's main theme song, "Freaking Out," written by JAM Project, the same music group who sang the themes for the anime.
The trailer also showcases some exciting scenes of the game in action. Players can control their own custom avatar, who, after a chance encounter with Saitama himself, begin their own journey to become a hero.
With their fully customizable avatar, players can take on missions, chat with other heroes, and fight in a Jump Force style gameplay.
In addition to Saitama, other fan-favorite One Punch Man characters make an appearance in the trailer, including Genos, Mumen Rider, and Tornado of Terror.
