My Hero Academia: One’s Justice is the official title of the first game based on the My Hero Academia anime/manga series in Japan. However, in North America and Europe, the official title is My Hero One’s Justice. In other words, the game in North America and Europe drops the word “Academia” from the title.
We’re not sure why this is because the anime and manga series the game is based on is also referred to as “My Hero Academia” in both North America and Europe. If we had to guess, there might be some kind of legal issue causing this. How or why it’s like this is beyond this, but one example we can think of is for the Attack on Titan games. In North America and Japan, the latest Attack on Titan game which was on PS4, Xbox One, PC, and Switch was called “Attack on Titan 2”. However, in Europe it was titled “A.O.T. 2” due to a legal issue. The game, otherwise, was the exact same in terms of contents for all three reasons.
The title “My Hero One’s Justice” was just revealed a few days ago via Bandai Namco Entertainment, if not earlier, but we honestly didn’t notice the “Academia” missing until we saw the official boxart. It seemed like a mistake until we read the press materials all left out the word “Academia”. The name being different is not a big deal if the content is the same, but it does feel quite odd. We’ll continue to refer to the game as “My Hero Academia One’s Justice” for now since it feels more comfortable, but might change as the game’s release nears.
My Hero Academia One’s Justice will be released sometime later this year (2018) on PS4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, and PC/Steam. Take a look at the box art for all platforms before.
First the Japanese box art. The game will only be released on PS4 and Switch in Japan.
Now for the European box art. The North American box art is the same, except it says ESRB “RP” in the place of the PEGI “12” rating logo. The game will be released digital-only on PC/Steam so we’re not sure why a box art was made for it. For the other platforms we assume it will be both physical and digital.
