Honestly, this game's roster may very well be more interesting than Jump Force's. Sure, anything before the 80s is mostly ignored, but at least Kochikame, Cobra, & Kinnikuman get represented. Still, the rest of the represented Jump manga shown here is really varied & features series not in J-Stars or even the prior Jump Stars games on the DS. Cat's Eye, Yoroshiku Mechadoc, Kimengumi, Wingman, City Hunter, Moeru! Onii-san, Taruruuto-kun, & Bastard!! for the 80s? Hana no Keiji, Ninku, Sexy Commando, & Tenten-kun for the 90s? Buso Renkin & Black Cat for the 00s?

Dang it, Konami, this actually looks cool & fun, if obviously simple due to being made for mobile phones. Still, this would be neat to see ported over to consoles as a budget download-only title, & I'd definitely import it, then.

Kinnikuman (Kinnikuman)
Arale Norimaki (Dr. Slump)
Hitomi Kisugi (Cat's Eye)
Rei Ichido (Highschool! Kimengumi)
Wingman (Wingman)
Kenshiro (Fist of the North Star)
Son Goku (Dragon Ball)
Ryo Saeba (City Hunter)
Jotaro Kujo (JoJo's Bizarre Adventure)
Kenichi Kokuho (Moeru!! Onii-san)
Dark Schneider (Bastard!!)
Taruruuto (Magical Taruruuto-kun)
Keiji Maeda (Hana no Keiji)
Fusuke (Ninku)
Luckyman (Tottemo! Luckyman)
Meisuke "Nube" Nueno (Hell Teacher Nube)
Kenshin Himura (Rurouni Kenshin)
Masaru Hananakajima (Sexy Commando Gaiden: Sugoi yo!! Masaru-san)
Yugi Muto [w/ Dark Magician] (Yu-Gi-Oh!)
Tenten (Hanasaka Tenshi Tenten-kun)
Monkey D. Luffy (One Piece)
Gon Freecss (Hunter X Hunter)
Naruto Uzumaki (Naruto)
Train Heartnet (Black Cat)
Junichi Jaguar (Pyu to Fuku! Jaguar)
Bobobo-bo Bo-bobo (Bobobo-bo Bo-bobo)
Kazuki Muto (Buso Renkin)
Light Yagami [w/ Ryuk] (Death Note)
Yusuke "Bossun" Fujisaki (Sket Dance)
Rikuo Nura (Nura: Rise of the Yokai Clan)
Toriko (Toriko)
Tatsumi Oga [w/ Baby Beel] (Beelzebub)
Koro-sensei (Assassination Classroom)
Kusuo Saiki (The Disastrous Life of Saiki K.)
Izuku "Deku" Midoriya (My Hero Academia)

Only one character per manga, & only the leads, but the end result is so much more varied than most other Jump games, and the Power Pro-esque character designs look awesome.

And no Ozora Tsubasa either. His Overhead Kick or Drive Shoot would've been effective ultimates, since in the manga, spoiler[he actually OHKO'd a strong boxer with a single kick when the boxer hurt his love interest. ]

I didn't watch the video, but I can't believe Naruto is way in the back in the thumbnail!? Saiki is bigger and closer to the front than him!

Interesting lineup, and as an app game, they can add more characters later. Hopefully this comes to America.

Barring any licensing issues, hopefully this will be available worldwide.
