BANDAI NAMCO Entertainment Asia recently revealed six new playable characters for upcoming title JUMP FORCE, as well as announcing details of the online experience. Joining the roster of JUMP FORCE – which sees the greatest heroes and villains from the 50-year history of Shueisha’s influential Japanese Weekly Shonen Jump magazine do battle – are six iconic names from Hunter X Hunter, One Piece and Dragon Ball Z. They are Gon and Hisoka from Hunter X Hunter, Sanji, Sabo and Blackbeard from One Piece, and the infamous Vegeta from Dragon Ball Z.

They also revealed new details about the game’s online experience during GAMESCON 2018. In JUMP FORCE’s online setting, players will be able to create their own customised avatar and interact with players from around the world. Based in a huge lobby composed of four distinct places – the worlds of One Piece, Naruto, Dragon Ball Z, and the real world – players will be able to tailor their own avatar to create an ultimate fighter, before fighting against others online. Further information about the avatar customisation will be revealed soon.

Also revealed is the Namek stage. From the Dragon Ball Z universe, Namek is the planet where the infamous battle against Frieza took place. Namek has three suns, so is in a state of permanent daylight. In JUMP FORCE, the planet Namek also features the mysterious appearance of a certain green statue… JUMP FORCE features the world’s most popular and classic manga/anime franchises including DRAGON BALL Z, ONE PIECE, NARUTO, and many others.

Players will be able to create their three-character manga/anime dream tag team and take them into battle in hyper-stylish arena brawls set against backdrops of famous landmarks around the world including New York City’s Times Square and the Matterhorn in the Alps. Utilizing Unreal Engine 4, JUMP FORCE brings these titans of Japanese pop culture to life for the first time ever in stunning realistic detail. JUMP FORCE will be available in 2019 for the Xbox One, PlayStation 4 system and PC via STEAM.
