It appears to be crossover season. A new Brave Frontier x My Hero Academia event will bring four fledgling heroes from the popular anime and manga series to Gumi’s gacha RPG.
Brave Frontier is a hero collection RPG from Gumi, the company behind The Alchemist Code and Phantom of the Kill. The game takes place in the world of Grand Gaia as players attempt to save the world from hordes of evil creatures. It contains hundreds of missions, turn-based combat, and an expansive roster of heroes to collect.
The mobile gacha game is one of the most popular of its kind, accumulating more than 10 million downloads for its global version on Google Play alone. It has spawned a sequel that is currently only available in Japan as well as a spin-off that is currently holding a beta test.
The new event will add My Hero Acedemia’s Izuku Midoriya, Ochaco Uraraka, Katsuki Bakugo and Tsuyu Asui, and All Might to the already sizable cast of heroes. Along with the new heroes, Brave Frontier players will also be able to participate in two limited time events. ‘Time for Training!’ will have players clear a dungeon in order to obtain items to help boost Izuku’s abilities. ‘Escape Through the Gate!’ will have players help Izuku and company train for an upcoming exam, awarding players with the hero All Might as a reward for completion.
The Brave Frontier x My Hero Academia event will run from July 26th to August 22nd. Time for Training! will be open from July 26th to August 8th, while Escape Through the Gate! will be open from August 6th to August 19th.
My Hero Academia (also known as Boku No Hero Academia) is a Japanese manga series that follows Izuku Midoriya as he enrolls in an elite high school for future superheroes. The series started its run in 2014 and is still ongoing. An anime adaptation was first shown in 2015 and is currently in its third season.
Crossover events are particularly popular for hero collection games as they allow developers to add new units with a built in fan base while also keeping their game active. These events are frequently held by games like Gumi’s own The Alchemist Code, Puzzle and Dragons, Final Fantasy Brave Exvius, and Valkyrie Connect. In the past year Brave Frontier held two separate collaboration events with The Alchemist Code, a Guilty Gear event, and a collaboration with the manga series Fairy Tail.
Brave Frontier is free and contains in app purchases.
