Jump Force, Bandai Namco’s upcoming anime fighter, got a new trailer this Tuesday, and it included a few reveals that long-time fans of various anime ought to find very exciting. Among the new characters that were revealed were Sanji, Sabo, and Blackbeard from One Piece, Vegeta from Dragon Ball, and Gon and Hisoka from Hunter x Hunter. These characters will join the likes of Goku, Light, and Luffy when the game releases in 2019.
Overall, Jump Force seems to be like Nintendo’s Super Smash Bros, but instead of familiar Nintendo Mascots, it’s filled with famous characters from popular anime. Plus, there’s an art-style that seems very similar to the recent Dragon Ball FighterZ, and a 3D fighting space not unlike Soul Calibur or Tekken. We can’t wait to see how this anime mashup turns out when it comes out next year.
What do you think? Do you plan on picking up Jump Force next year? What other characters should join the already-impressive roster? Let us know!
