Jump Force PS4/Xbox One/PC Game Unites Shonen Jump Characters
posted on by Rafael Antonio Pineda
Bandai Namco Entertainment revealed Jump Force, a new crossover game for Weekly Shonen Jump manga characters, during Microsoft's E3 2018 press conference on Sunday. The trailer shows characters such as Goku and Frieza from Dragon Ball, the titular protagonist of Naruto, Luffy from One Piece, and Light and Ryuk from Death Note.
Bandai Namco Entertainment describes the game:
Universes collide as legendary manga heroes and villains are transported to our reality. Massive battles fill epic locales as good and evil clashes, while humankind hangs in the balance.
Spike Chunsoft is developing the game, and it will launch on the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC via Steam in 2019.
Spike Chunsoft previously worked on the J-Stars Victory VS+ game. Like Jump Force, that game is also a crossover featuring characters from Weekly Shonen Jump characters. That game shipped in Japan for the PlayStation 3 and PlayStation Vita in 2014, and in the West for the same platforms as well as the PS4 in 2015. Spike Chunsoft also developed the One Piece: Burning Blood game, which shipped in 2016.
