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
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.
