During Microsoft’s Xbox E3 2018 media briefing we received a world exclusive announcement for Jump Force, a new game from Bandai Namco
Jump Force is a fighter / brawler which brings together all Shonen Jump manga characters together in one video game. In the trailer we saw characters from One Piece, Dragon Ball, Naruto Shippuden and even Death Note all battling it out in a real-world setting.
Players will be able to create a three-character tag team who they’ll be able to take into battle into the game’s many arenas which are set against real-world backdrops such as New York, Matterhorn, and many more.
The game will be developed in Unreak Engine 4 to offer some incredibly detailed character models from some of the most popular anime / manga.
“JUMP FORCE provides an incredible opportunity for players to discover the rich universe of Shueisha and battle in iconic real-world locations,” said Hervé Hoerdt (Vice President Marketing and Digital at BANDAI NAMCO Entertainment Europe). “To celebrate the 50th anniversary of Shōnen Jump, Shueisha and BNEE are bringing together some of the most beloved manga and anime franchises of all time. We can’t wait to unveil more details on JUMP FORCE in the coming months.”
Jump Force is set to launch on Xbox One, PS4, and PC.
