My Hero Academia has enjoyed a relatively solid streak of video game adaptations in recent years.

Now, My Hero Academia's next video game adaptation stop is an entirely different genre.

According to Gematsu, My Hero Academia is getting a free-to-play battle royale game, My Hero Academia: Ultra Rumble.

A translated Weekly Jump panel describes the game where players can "team up to win a 24-player rumble in multiplayer action."

Judging by the screenshots available so far, Ultra Rumble works like a typical battle royale game.

A reveal trailer teases the potential of varied gameplay styles and mechanics as well,

According to Bandai Namco, Ultra Rumble will be released on the PC, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch.

Unfortunately, the Weekly Jump scan did not include details of a release window let alone a release date.

But, if it's any consolation, Bandai Namco intends to hold a closed beta test for the game.

This hints at the possibility of a bigger international announcement coming soon, preferably with a new website launch.
