Namco Bandai Games began streaming the second four-minute promotional video for its J-Stars Victory Vs. "team battle action" video game on Friday.
The video begins by defining three important keywords for this Shonen Jump 45th anniversary game: friendship, effort, and victory. Then it proclaims that the game assembles generations of heroes who embody the burning Jump spirit, for the ultimate dream battle. The new characters include:

- rival Zebra (Toriko)
- rival Vegeta (Dragon Ball)
- Tarō Yamada (Chinyūki -Tarō to Yukaina Nakama-tachi-)

The rest of the character roster include:
- Toriko (Toriko)
- Kenshin Himura (Rurouni Kenshin)
- Gintoki Sakata (Gintama)
