Bandai Namco recently dropped an announcement trailer for a brand new rendition of the battle royal genre. This time around it involves the cast of My Hero Academia. The announcement also comes along with a My Hero Ultra Rumble beta.
Back in January 2022, Bandai Namco made its first appearance with My Hero Ultra Rumble. While the West Coast wasn’t given much info in Japan gamers got to experience the open beta of the title. It wouldn’t be until Anime Expo 2022 that Bandai gives the West more information about the Anime battle royal.
Closed Beta Testing
My Hero Ultra Rumble received its Japanese closed beta earlier in the year. This time Western players will also get a chance to try the game out for itself. The title currently has a sign-up for closed beta testing. The closed beta testing currently is only running for Playstation 4 users. The testing is running in two phases.
Phase 1 starts on August 17 at 7:00 p.m. PT / 10:00 p.m. ET, and ends on August 18 at 3:00 a.m. PT / 6:00 a.m. ET
Phase 2 starts on Aug. 18 at 7:00 p.m. PT / 10:00 p.m. ET, and ends on August 21 at 11:00 a.m. PT / 2:00 p.m. ET
Gamers can head over to the Bandai Namco website to signup for the chance at closed beta access.
