Jump Force Game Reveals Full DLC Character Lineup

posted on by Jennifer Sherman

Bandai Namco Entertainment America announced the full DLC character lineup for the Jump Force crossover fighting game on Thursday. The newly announced characters are Hunter X Hunter's Biscuit Krueger, Dragon Ball Z's Majin Buu, Naruto's Madara Uchiha, One Piece's Trafalgar D. Water Law, Bleach's Hitsugaya Toshiro and Grimmjow Jaegerjaquez, and My Hero Academia's Katsuki Bakugo.

The previously announced DLC characters are Yu-Gi-Oh!'s Seto Kaiba and My Hero Academia's All Might. The company also began streaming a trailer for All Might.

The first three of the game's nine DLC characters will launch in May. 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.
