Dragon Ball, One Piece, Naruto, and More Face off in "Jump Force"

Adjust Comment Print

Jump Force is now in development for PC, PS4, and Xbox One. Just so you know: Hold the right trigger, press X. And so, for five glorious minutes, I threw an endless barrage of cataclysmic blue-beam world-enders into the face of Naruto, permanently expressing the superiority of my preferred anime canon. Watching Naruto, Monkey, and Goku team up also makes the game feel like the manga/anime Avengers.

Bandai Namco Entertainment Asia has uploaded 3.5 minutes of gameplay from the newly announced Jump crossover fighting game Jump Force. Again, sorry-not-sorry for making Jump Force my own personal anime torture device. This footage also confirmed that Roronoa Zoro of One Piece and Sasuke Uchiha of Naruto will be playable characters. Bandai Namco states that it's trying to bring the characters to life with a more realistic design to showcase the fact that game takes place in the real world.

The common factor between these manga series is that they were all published in Shonen Jump.

My biggest problem with shonen is that it tends to really badly sideline its female characters in games.

While the trailer is very cool, it gives us few to no implications about the nature of the game. Already, this is quite the party for Shonen Jump alumni.
