It’s a great time to be alive if you love mobile videogames. And productions from the ever-popular world of manganime are one reason why. We’ve already talked about tons of high-quality games based on anime series, but new games show up all the time that are worth mentioning. In this case, we’re talking about My Hero Academia: Smash Tap, a fun game that’s based on My Hero Academia (Boku no Hero Academia) and you’ll get to experience the adventures of Midoriya, All Might, and the rest of the characters. Of course, you’ll have to play in Japanese for now, since the game hasn’t been translated to western languages yet. In any case, you can download it from our website without any geographic restrictions of any sort.
After the disappearance of two of the works that previously made up the so-called Big Three of manga (Once Piece, Naruto, Bleach), the magazine Shōnen Jump was eager to find works that could reach the same level of popularity. Since One Piece tends to outshine most of its contemporaries, it’s been comforting to find some freshness in the form of My Hero Academia. It’s a series that doesn’t try to hide its love of American comics and that many consider to be the successor of Naruto. This fame is well-deserved and has worked toward the appearance of a game like My Hero Academia: Smash Tap.
The mobile videogame based on the works of Kōhei Horikoshi is the second work from the franchise to reach the world of interactive entertainment. It’s a game with incredibly high production values that’s reminiscent of other similar games like Bleach Brave Souls and One Piece Thousand Storm thanks to its chibi-style characters and its perfect touchscreen control system. You’ll move around the setting using a virtual stick and attack your enemies by tapping the screen or choosing the typical special abilities we’re used to seeing in this type of game.
The development in My Hero Academia: Smash Tap is also traditional: you have a story mode where you can relive the moments from the manga and that will let you recruit characters that you can use in the rest of the game modes, in addition to the loved/hated gacha system. And yes, the roster of characters rises to the occasion: Deku, Bakugo, Todoroki, Iida, Uraraka, Tokoyami, Tsuyu, All Might, and even the less than popular Mineta.
My Hero Academia: Smash Tap is an excellent game for mobile devices that fans definitely won’t want to miss. Although the language barrier might be a downer for many players, the gameplay is a universal language that we all can enjoy. Similar to what happens in Attack on Titan – Dedicate Your Heart. And if you find yourself getting lost, you can always take a look at its subreddit.
