This the third day of Anime Expo and I hope everyone is doing well over there. Even though I heard day one was a one step forward and two steps back, hopefully today is better. I got some exciting video game news for you. Instead of writing separate posts, I am going to combine them all.
One Piece Pirate Warriors 4
If you are familiar with Dynasty Warriors, you may have heard of the One Piece game One Piece Pirate Warriors. One Piece Pirate Warriors takes everything you know about Dynasty Warriors and allows players to play as their favorite characters and take on an army of enemies alone and relieve classic moments from the manga. There’s currently three games of One Piece: Pirate Warriors. Announced last night, Bandai Namco released an announcement trailer of the upcoming game One Piece: Pirate Warriors 4. The only thing we know that this game is going to be released in 2020 for the PS4, X1, Switch and PC. The trailer shows Luffy in Gear 4 in Bounce Man form and Big Mom. This could hint that the game will go all the way up to Big Cake Island arc.

Already announced, a One Punch Man video game is in the works. The game is called One Punch Man: A Hero Nobody Knows and it’s going to give players the ability to play as their favorite characters and compete in a 3v3 match.

If Deku is joining Jump Force, then bring in his friend/enemy Bakugo Katsuki. It’s already been announced that the season pass will include Bakugo and he will be a DLC character but recently revealed, Bandai Namco shared on Twitter some screenshots of Bakugo in combat. Bakugo is from the Shonen Jump series My Hero Academia who is the a friend and rival to the protagonist Izuka Midoriya. He also looks up to the greatest hero All Might.

Any fan of Dragon Ball will tell you that in video games, the series has so many fighters and the last time a video game tried to cram in every fighter from the series, we got Dragon Ball Z Budokai Tentaichi 3 which included characters from Dragon Ball, Dragon Ball Z (including the movies) and Dragon Ball GT. It looks like Xenoverse 2 is going to be the next DB game with a huge roster. It’s been announced by Bandai Namco that they will be introducing the Ultra Pack DLC. The first set of the DLC will include Super Saiyan God Vegeta and the newly introduced Ribrianne . The Ultra Pack 1 will be introduced in PS4, X1, Steama and Switch in June.
Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2 has a roster of the characters from the classic Dragon Ball, DBZ, DBGT and DBS.
Whether you like the Jump Force or don’t, this is good news for gamers who are enjoying the game and paid more for DLC. I got this news from blogger Scorpzgca and from Bandai Namco that Seto Kaiba will be joining the anime crossover fighting game Jump Force. Seto Kaiba is a rival character for Yugi Muto from the series Yu-Gi-Oh! in the anime and manga. players who either bought the season pass or bought this character separately will be able to harness Kaiba’s Blue-Eyes White Dragon and use the Eygptain God monster Obelisk the Tormentor.
Bandai Namco also revealed a diagram map showing people the upcoming updates and DLC for Jump Force in the following months. Seto Kaiba will be available for download in May.

You asked and Bandai Namco listened, Dragon Ball FighterZ is getting another season pass with an updated roster of fan favorite characters. A trailer was released during the Red Bull Summoning Tournament of Dragon Ball FighterZ and the trailer revealed that six new DLC characters are planned to join Dragon Ball FighterZ. You can buy the new season pass on January 31st of this year for anyone who has the game for PS4, X1, Switch or PC. The two characters joining the game will be Gohan’s wife and Mr. Satan/Hercule’s daughter Videl. She can utilize amazing combos and also have Gohan’s hero alter ego Great Saiyaman to help her fight along with her. Also being playable is Universe 11 greatest warrior Jiren. Jiren made his appearance in the last arc of Dragon Ball Super during the Tournament of Power. Jiren’s trainning has made him the strongest warrior and his strength is so incredible that he was able to put Goku in a pinch that not even his SSB form wasn’t at his level. These two characters will be added on Jan 31st. But wait there’s more! Revealed as the last two characters to be added, it’s been revealed that Broly and Gogeta from the movie Dragon Ball Super: Broly will be added to the game. There’s no gameplay, but these two will be the last characters added to the game.
So here is the season 2 newly added roster:

Good news Jump fans, we’re getting more characters in this upcoming Jump Force video game!
Announced today, Bandai Namco announced that the new characters joining Jump Force is Kenshiro from Fist of the North Star and Ryo Saeba from the classic anime City Hunter. A trailer shows the trailer for these characters reveals that a new stage will be Paris, France. So far, here is the roster for the announced characters:
Saint Seiya/Knights of the Zodiac
- Pegasus Seiya
- Dragon Shiryu
Hunter x Hunter
Fist of the North Star
Non-playable characters is Light Yagami and Ryuk from Death Note. The game comes out on February 15th, 2015 on PS4 and X1.
Looks like Super Smash Bros Ultimate isn’t the only game that is revealing new characters. Bandai Namco has just revealed more new news for the upcoming crossover game Jump Force! If you like Hunter x Hunter, you might have heard Yoshihrio Togashi’s previous manga series Yu Yu Hakusho. It’s been officially announced that the protagonist Yusuke Urameshi will be joining the brawl along with the antagonist Toguro and his 100% form.
It has also been revealed that the game will include 4 original characters for the game’s story mode. These characters were created and designed by Dragon Ball creator Akira Toriyama. The two heroes joining the game is Glover and Navigator. The two villains meddling the universes are named Galena and Kane.
Last but not least, we got information on pre-order bonuses for anyone interesting of reserving a copy for the game. Players who pre-order the standard copy of the game will have three exclusive costume pieces and a lobby vehicle. I am assuming it’s going to be like Dragon Ball Xenoverse where players can create their own character and customize their appearance. Players who don’t mind spending extra can try to get the collector’s edition. The collector’s edition will have the same thing I mentioned about the costume pieces, but players will be awarded with a diorama statue of Luffy, Goku and Naruto, three art board pieces of the three heroes and a steelbook case.
The game is set to be released on February 2019 for PS4, X1 and PC.
Here are the confirmed Shonen Jump characters thus far:

Hunter x Hunter
