Yoruichi joins game in early 2021

Bandai Namco Entertainment began streaming a short trailer on Saturday for the Jump Force crossover fighting game that previews the DLC character Yoruichi Shihōin from Bleach. The character will join the game in early 2021.

The game will also add the character Giorno Giovanna from JoJo's Bizarre Adventure: Golden Wind. Bandai Namco Entertainment previously stated that the "work-in-progress" character Giorno is still under development, and that the final version may differ from what the company accidentally released to a small number of players due to a technical issue last month.

The game's Character Pass 2 includes the already released characters Shoto Todoroki from My Hero Academia, Meruem from Hunter X Hunter, and Hiei from Yu Yu Hakusho. Meruem and Hiei will debut in the Nintendo Switch version of the game in early 2021.

Jump Force Deluxe Edition, the Nintendo Switch version of the game, launched on August 28 in the Americas and Europe, and in Japan and Asia on August 27. The Switch version allows for local co-op with two consoles connected, and offline battles that allow for up to six people to play with one console. The Switch version includes all nine characters from the game's first Character Pass, and the game's second Character Pass is also available separately.

Spike Chunsoft developed the game, which launched for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC via Steam in February 2019 in the Americas, Europe, and Japan.

Previously released 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, Naruto's Madara Uchiha, Bleach's Toshiro Hitsugaya and Grimmjow Jaegerjaquez, One Piece's Trafalgar Law, and Kane and Galena (original characters designed by Akira Toriyama). The sets of paid DLC include avatar costumes and skills along with the DLC characters. The game's first Character Pass allows players to access the first nine DLC characters.
