Bandai Namco Entertainment Europe began streaming two new English trailers for its fighting game Shonen Jump's J-Stars Victory VS+ on Wednesday. The videos feature Toriko and Zebra from Toriko, Tsunayoshi Sawada from Reborn!, and Kenshin Himura from Rurouni Kenshin.
The PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, and PlayStation Vita game will feature the original Japanese audio track with English subtitles. More than 50 characters from at least 32 titles appear in Shonen Jump's 45th anniversary game in Japan. The premise of the game is "J Battle Festival, a dream festival that happens once in 45 years" and assembles heroes who exemplify friendship, hard work, and victory.
In the spirit of friendship, the game supports 2 vs. 2 team battles in dream matches that cross the borders between titles. Players can unleash combination attacks never possible until now, some with the help of support characters.
Hironobu Kageyama, Akira Kushida, and Hiroshi Kitadani sang the game's theme song "Fighting Stars." The game includes stages from One Piece, Dragon Ball Z, Toriko, Naruto Shippuden, Yu Yu Hakusho, Bleach, Kochira Katsushika-ku Kamearikouen-mae Hashutsujo, Gintama, Saint Seiya, and Dr. Slump & Arale-chan.
Bandai Namco Entertainment will ship the game in Europe on June 26 and in North America on June 30. Those who pre-order the game in North America and Europe will get a J-Stars VS+ Compendium book with art for the 52 characters in the game. The pre-order bonus will also include PlayStation themes for the PS4, PS3, and PS Vita.
