At 2018’s Gamescom a barrage of new info for JUMP Force was unveiled, covering new characters, stages, and game modes.
JUMP Force is a brand new three on three fighting game celebrating fifty years of Weekly Shōnen Jump magazine and is currently in development by Spike Chunsoft and being published by Bandai Namco.
First up the big news is the announcement of even more characters being added to the line up; as previously unveiled, and now confirmed by Bandai Namco, Hunter X Hunter characters, Gon and Hisoka will be arriving, while the crew from One Piece is shaping up and so far includes Luffy, Sanji, Sabo and Blackbeard.
The trailer also shows off Dragon Ball Z’s Vegeta, Prince of all Saiyans, and most interestingly of all the costume destruction is spectacular, with dirt and tears increasing over the duration of the battle. Most of the trailer takes place on Planet Namek with some very strange additions!
Weekly Shōnen Jump magazine has been home to some of the most original characters in manga history. With a while yet to go until release what other characters will we see? I’m holding out for Bobobo-bo Bo-bobo and Arale Norimaki!
