Bandai Namco Teases New Game, Could be My Hero Academia-Related

Bandai Namco Teases New Game, Could be My Hero Academia-Related

Could this mysterious new project be related to the smash-hit My Hero Academia anime?

In a rather strange new website to promote an upcoming, unannounced game, Bandai Namco has teased a project that could be something to do with smash-hit success anime My Hero Academia.

The image on the teaser website is of an egg in a microwave, which immediately stands out as a 'My Hero Academia' reference. Reflecting back on Episode 5 of Season 1, All Might tells protagonist Izuku Midoriya that he must imagine his superpower like an egg in a microwave.

The manga that My Hero Academia is based on originally began back in 2014, and is still ongoing, just like the smash-hit anime show that first released last year in April, 2016. The anime might be between seasons right now, but it's due to return for Season 3 at some point in 2018.

The URL of the teaser website is 'mhaoj', and while the first three letters could very well be an acronym for My Hero Academia, we have no idea what the final two letters could stand for.

My Hero Academia's All Might.

We might not know anything about the mysterious game right now, but the timer on the microwave is set to finish on December 4. Until then, we'll keep our eyes peeled for any additional information that comes our way about this new game.
