Go Beyond, Plus Ultra as My Hero Academia Joins Puzzle & Dragons


The heroes and villains of Japan are ready to fight it out in event-exclusive dungeons


REDONDO BEACH, Calif. – June 27, 2022 - The hero students of U.A. High School put their education and training to the test in Puzzle & Dragons today through July 10. Join your favorite heroes—or villains—to battle through dungeons designed to challenge even the No.1 hero!


To help you earn your pro-hero license, every player that logs in during the collaboration receives U.A. High School Hero Course, Izuku Midoriya. Players will also get a free pull from the My Hero Academia Memorial Egg Machine when logging in during the collab. Partner up with fellow students like Katsuki Bakugo and Shoto Todoroki and pros like All Might and Number 2 Hero, Hawks. You could also side with villains like Tomura Shigaraki and Brain of the League of Villains, All For One.


Battle the League of Villains

  • My Hero Academia Challenge! gives first-time rewards for clearing floors, including a free pull from the My Hero Academia Memorial Egg Machine for clearing the dungeon.
