Bandai Namco Games has just released a new trailer and details for their upcoming fighting game Jump Force.
This new information was revealed at Gamescom 2018 and we got details on the online mode, some new fighters and a new stage. Watch the trailer below and then read on for the new information on the game.
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.
In Jump Force’s online setting, players will be able to create their own customized 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 customization will be revealed soon.
Bandai Namco Entertainment have also announced six new characters joining the roster, Gon and Hisoka from Hunter X Hunter, Sanji, Sabo and Blackbeard from One Piece, and the infamous Vegeta from Dragon Ball Z.
Gon is a young boy with a pure heart. He’ll put his friends first above all and will face up to any opponent if for the greater good. Hisoka is his opposite. Underneath his jovial exterior lies a sociopathic fighter that finds pleasure only in killing.
Sanji is the cook of One Piece’s Straw Hat Crew, but don’t let this deceive you. For Sanji is one of the strongest fighters, willing to face anyone to protect his comrades. Sabo is like a brother to Luffy, fighting alongside him in battle. He has total control over fire and can use this immense skill in battle. Blackbeard is one of the fiercest and most despicable characters of One Piece. He is the only known user of two different Devil Fruits, allowing him to create earthquakes and manipulate the darkness itself..
And no game featuring Dragon Ball Z characters would be complete without Vegeta. Once a mortal enemy of Goku, he now fights alongside him to protect earth.
Also revealed today 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…
