posted on by Alex Mateo
DLC character launches in May with Yu-Gi-Oh!'s Seto Kaiba

The official Twitter accounts for Bandai Namco Entertainment UK and Bandai Namco Entertainment America announced on Thursday that My Hero Academia's All Might will be the second DLC character for the Jump Force crossover fighting game. The character will launch in the game in May with Yu-Gi-Oh!'s Seto Kaiba and one other character.

The game will have a total of nine DLC characters. Three more characters will release in August, and the last three will release at an as-yet unannounced date. The two sets of paid DLC in May and August will also include avatar costumes and skills along with the three DLC characters. Additionally, the company is releasing free updates every month from April through August.

Spike Chunsoft developed the game, which launched on the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC via Steam on February 15 in the Americas and Europe and on February 14 in Japan.

Dragon Ball's Akira Toriyama designed some original characters for the game, and players can create their own avatar characters in the game. The game's season pass allows players to access all nine DLC characters.
