Crunchyroll Games announced today that it’s working on a game based on the One Punch Man anime. Called One Punch Man: World, the title is a multiplayer action game that launches on PC and mobile later this year. Crunchyroll is co-developing it with publisher Perfect World. Interested players can pre-register for the PC version now.

According to Crunchyroll’s new trailer, World is a hack-and-slash action title starring several familiar characters from the anime. Players join the Hero Association and unlock and level up the characters. They can take on villains and monsters in raids and also engage in mini-games and side quests. Several fights from the anime’s first season are recreated beat-for-beat, but Crunchyroll is also adding new content that expands the story.

Perfect World is a Chinese publisher responsible for several other titles, including Tower of Fantasy, Final Fantasy Awakening and the upcoming Persona 5: The Phantom X. The company sold its subsidiary, Perfect World Entertainment, to Embracer in 2021. It was also the company that brought Steam to China in 2018.
