One Punch Man: A Hero Nobody Knows loses most online features February 28th, 2022

One Punch Man: A Hero Nobody Knows loses most online features February 28th, 2022


Bandai NAMCO announced on Twitter yesterday that some multiplayer features in their 2020 release of One Punch Man: A Hero Nobody Knows will be shutting down across all platforms on February 28th, 2022. The tweet reiterates that all offline modes, and even the 1-on-1 versus mode, will remain available on Steam, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One but that the online lobby system and its accompanying events, Avatar Ranked Battles, and login bonuses will be retired.

Product pages for the game have also been updated with the following wording:

Notice for Online Lobby Functions Ending. Online lobby functions will end on the following date: February 28, 2022. Along with the ending of online lobby functions, the following features will no longer be available:

– Participation in Online Events
– Participation in Avatar Ranked Battles
– Distribution of login bonuses

It looks like One Punch Man: A Hero Nobody Knows will remain on sale digitally for the time being. It was also released to retail on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. Thanks to everyone who pointed out the news, I’ve added the date to the Watch List calendar.
