Anime’s Greatest Hits Are All Here
A new trailer for the upcoming explosive anime fighting game known as Jump Force recently dropped, revealing a slew of new playable heroes and villains that are bound to have fans frothing at the mouth. Not only did it show additional characters from previously established franchises like Dragon Ball Z and One Piece, but also introduced another OG series to the mix; Hunter x Hunter!
According to an article on Gamespot –
“Bandai Namco has revealed six new playable characters for Jump Force, its upcoming anime fighting game that pits characters from various Shonen Jump series against each other.
Hunter x Hunter‘s protagonist Gon and antagonist Hisoka join the hero and villain sides, respectively. Everyone’s favorite Saiyan Prince Vegeta joins the Dragon Ball roster, while One Piece gets the largest addition in Sanji, Sabo, and Blackbeard.
The six new characters join Dragon Ball‘s Goku and Frieza, One Piece‘s Luffy and Zoro, Naruto‘s Naruto and Sasuke, and Bleach‘s Ichigo, Rukia, and Aizen. As shown in the E3 2018 reveal, Death Note‘s Light and Ryuk also make appearances in the fighter, but Bandai Namco later confirmed that they are story-exclusive characters and are not playable. The six new characters bring the roster up to 15.”
The trailer also reveals a mysterious figure right at the end, one who appears to be feminine in appearance while also sporting Luffy’s iconic straw hat on their back. Unless this is a being from a parallel version of One Piece, many gamers have come to the conclusion that Jump Force will have it’s very own custom character creation mode. If that’s true, then prepare for a swarm of fanfic protagonists to make their debut in spectacular form!
