As you might have already guessed, My Hero Ultra Impact is a gacha RPG. That means you will be collecting different characters through the usual gacha methods to create your team. From there, you can upgrade and awaken them, which unlocks a new original illustration.

Once you're happy with your squad, you can take them into the PvP realm to test your skills against others, where mastery of Quirks will prove key to emerging victorious. Outside of battling, you can customise your Hero Base by inviting different heroes and villains to roam about the hideout.

My Hero Ultra Impact is available to pre-order on the App Store and Google Play. It is a free-to-play game with in-app purchases.
