Move over Marvel, there’s a new massive crossover event coming. Jump Force might not be for everyone, but it’s hard to ignore a fighting game that brings together some of the biggest anime and manga characters together to brawl it out. The real world has collided with all of the Shonen Jump universes, bringing together a “Jump Force” of heroes to put a stop to the madness.
Bandai Namco’s tag-team, three-on-three fighting game has 33 confirmed characters across 13 different series, plus additional original heroes created just for Jump Force. Notable fan favorites include Naruto, Monkey D. Luffy from One Piece, Yugi from Yu-Gi-Oh!, Izuku from My Hero Academia, and Goku (and several friends) from Dragonball. You can even create your own hero to fight your way through the game’s story mode or to use during online matchmaking challenges.
With so many notable characters dueling in fast-paced matches across multi-stage 3D levels, Jump Force looks like a must-play for fighting game fans in 2019. The flashy, anime-style graphics are pure eye candy, and the fluid, tag-team fighting gameplay looks like loads of strategic and action-packed fun. If you’ve ever wondered who would win in a fight between Goku and Naruto, you can finally settle that debate when Jump Force comes out on February 15, 2019!
