DLC characters join game's lineup on November 19

Bandai Namco Entertainment America began streaming a DLC character trailer on Thursday for its Jump Force crossover fighting game. The video previews Bleach's Toshiro Hitsugaya and Naruto's Madara Uchiha, who will both launch in the game on November 19. The video also shows the new Whole Cake Island stage from One Piece. Character Pass owners will have early access to the new characters on Friday.

Previous DLC characters include My Hero Academia's Katsuki Bakugo, Dragon Ball Z's Majin Buu, Yu-Gi-Oh!'s Seto Kaiba, My Hero Academia's All Might, Hunter x Hunter's Biscuit Krueger, and Kane and Galena (original characters designed by Akira Toriyama). The game will also get One Piece's Trafalgar D. Water Law, and Bleach's Grimmjow Jaegerjaquez as DLC characters.

The last two characters will join the roster at an as-yet unannounced date. The sets of paid DLC include avatar costumes and skills along with the DLC characters. The game's Character Pass allows players to access all nine DLC characters.

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