"The third year, Mirio Togata, pays a visit to the students of Class 1-A, who are bored because they are not allowed to go outside. He brings them a card game called UA Heroes Battle that the support course made," reads the official synopsis for 'UA Heroes Battle'.

"This game, where players can use cards of various UA students, is tough, just like UA itself. Who will win the card battle?!"

The episode will later be made available for streaming on Crunchyroll, though release dates are yet to be confirmed.
