Jump Force is set to D-D-D-Duel when it releases in 2019, with the addition of Yugi from Yu-Gi-Oh! to the roster.
Bandai-Namco’s Jump Force is fast shaping up to be the ultimate video game celebration of Weekly Shōnen Jump’s 50-year publishing history. Joining the previously announced Sasuke Uchiha, Frieza, and Roronoa Zoro is the long-anticipated Yugi Mutou, the second most important character from Yu-Gi-Oh has finally been confirmed to be appearing in the upcoming versus fighting game.
After solving the millennium puzzle Yugi unleashed and befriends a heroic ancient Egyptian spirit known as Yami Yugi that occupies his body surfacing in times great need (Shazam-style). In Yugi’s world pretty much every problem’s solution is a children’s card game. Yugi’s transformations and card abilities should make him an interesting addition to the 3-on-3 gameplay.
Now that the floodgates have been opened for Yu-Gi-Oh’s many varied characters, hopefully, Bandit Kieth will be following suit not too long from now. In America!
Jump Force will be released for Windows PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One in 2019.
