Jump Force news: New characters and a hub world?

Greetings anime fans! I have found some awesome news in the world of anime and video games. Most of you are aware of the anticipated crossover fighting game Jump Force. Bandai Namco announced the release of more Shonen Jump characters joining the brawl. Here are the new characters:

Joining the game with the characters the young kid Hunter Gon Freecss and the disturbing card fighter Hisoka from the series Hunter x Hunter.

Added from the Dragon Ball series is Goku’s rival and friend Vegeta the Prince of all the Saiyans.

Last but not least, we have more characters from One Piece. Joining Luffy and Zoro is the Straw Hat Crew’s cook and fighter Sanji Vinsmoke. Luffy’s second oldest brother Sabo joins the fight and is equppied with the powers of the Flame-Flame Fruit and the Dragon Claw technique taught from Monkey D. Dragon. The ruthless pirate and enemy to Luffy is Marshall D. Teach and he is ready to use the power of Darkness and Earthquakes to crush his enemies.

Also, according to this new trailer, the game looks like it might have a hub world becuase it has iconic figures the mountains from Dragon Ball, the Hidden Leaf Village and some sort of vendor and am unknown character (probably a girl) with a Straw Hat. This could be a hint that this game might have a creator fighter feature similar to Dragon Ball Xenoverse series.

Here is the following roster currently:

One Piece

  • Monkey D. Luffy
  • Roronoa Zoro
  • Sanji Vinsmoke
  • Sabo
  • Marshall D. Teach

Naruto

  • Naruto Uzamaki
  • Sasuke Uchiha

  • Rukia Kuchiki
  • Sosuke Aizen

  1. Good to see Vegeta officially announced! I’ll definitely be using him and Sasuke on my team. I forgot if it’s 2v2 or 3v3, but if I need a third fighter then I’ll probably add Goku in to wrap up the team. Of course I look forward to seeing who else they add in since my team will probably look a lot different by then

    • Yeah adding Vegeta on the game is going to make things interesting. I haven’t decided which characters I am going to be using. I do want to play as Ichigo and Rukia.
