A trailer for the upcoming One Punch Man game reveals how to play as the legendary Saitama. A trailer for the game was released to tie in with Gamescom, the trailer reveals a free battle mode where players can pit characters in a 3v3 battle. In this mode the way to play as Saitama is a strange one, players can play as him after he arrives thanks to a new mechanic, the Hero Arrival System. This mechanic means that in order to play as Saitama you have to survive a 2v3 battle until he arrives and knocks them out in one punch.

In Free Battle Mode, players will fight in teams of up to three characters. The goal will be to defeat each enemy combatant, whilst selecting the right character at the right time to stand as the victor. In order to harness Saitama’s insane strength, the game will also introduce a unique concept in this mode – The Hero Arrival System. Players will have to meet a number of criteria if they want to play as the strongest hero. In order to make Saitama selectable, they will need to choose two fighters first. When the fight begins Saitama’s team will have to survive until his arrival despite the numerical disadvantage. Combos or perfect guards will remove time on the counter. When the Caped Baldy finally enters battle, one punch should be enough to pacify any situation!

In the trailer they also confirm 3 new characters will be added to the game, the S-class heroes Atomic Samurai, Silverfang and Terrible Tornado are joining the fight and with the game still in development more heroes and villains will be revealed in the future.

One Punch Man: A Hero Nobody Knows is coming soon to PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC.
