Jump Force Gets Brand-New Characters And A Release Date

Jump Force

Jump Force is going to be the fighting game you’ve always wanted and another batch of brand-new characters has just been announced for the 2019 title.

Bandai Namco has confirmed that Hunter X Hunter‘s Killua and Kurapika, and Yu Yu Hakusho‘s Yusuke and Toguro will be playable when the game releases, and even if you’re not a fan of them specifically, the line-up so far is guaranteed to impress.

Jump Force’s playable characters (so far!) include the likes of Dragon Ball favourite Frieza and Goku, as well as the iconic Light Yagami from Death Note.

The fun doesn’t end there as you’ll even be able to play as Naruto, as well as One Piece‘s Luffy. Seriously, Jump Force is every anime fan’s absolute dream.

The game has also been revealed to have its own canon characters, created by none other than legend Akira Toriyama of Dragon Ball fame.

Jump Force is also slated to have nine whole DLC characters for you to pick up, and it’ll launch with a season pass available too.

Unfortunately Jump Force isn’t making its way to the Nintendo Switch – at least not yet anyway.

This hasn’t left fans feeling too pleased, as the Switch seems like it would be a really good platform for the title. Maybe Nintendo will hear your prayers?

Jump Force will be releasing in all its glory on PC, Xbox One and PlayStation 4 in February 2019.

With such an extensive line-up of new and exciting games in the next few months it’s going to be difficult to find the time!
