E3 2018: Fight as anime’s most powerful characters in Jump Force

Adjust Comment Print

"Celebrating the 50th Anniversary of the famous Weekly Jump Magazine, Jump Force is making the most of latest technologies to bring characters to life in a never-seen-before realistic design". There are plenty of awesome women in manga, and since we aren't getting a magical girl version of this (even though we should), it would be nice to get some representation for the female characters that do exist in the franchises.

You pick a squad of three characters, you land in a wide-open, fully 3D arena that's significantly larger and more vertical than the traditional Street Fighter 2D plane (though fairly sparse), and you blow each other up with pure anime excess. That's because this crossover game isn't just the merging of the Jump universes, but also with the "real world" or reality. We didn't get to see any gameplay, but the trailer was enough to get any anime fan pumped up. It's too early to tell, but clearly it doesn't have to be played that way, which is a boon for a plebe like me. This footage also confirmed that Roronoa Zoro of One Piece and Sasuke Uchiha of Naruto will be playable characters. Dmitri Khlynin, a community guy at Bandai Namco, cleared that up quickly for me.

The common factor between these manga series is that they were all published in Shonen Jump.
