At Microsoft’s E3 conference, a new fighting game, Jump Force, was revealed.
The trailer showed off major characters from popular Shonen Jump series, likeMonkey D. Luffy of One Piece, Goku from Dragon Ball and Naruto. At the end, the backs of Light and Ryuk from Death Note was also shown, though their fighting style is unknown.
In a press release, Bandai Namco confirmed that Jump Force will be a 3-on-3 tag team fight, so players can have their favorite Jump characters team up.
The different scenes in the beginning of the trailer displayed many areas inspired by the different series, like ruined Hokage statues from Naruto and the Thousand Sunny from One Piece. The press release also confirmed that the stages in the game would take place in real world locations, like Time Square in New York City or the Matterhorn in the Alps. There is no confirmation if there will only be real world locations, or if players will also be able to fight in stages from the different series.
This is not the first time these characters have come together to duke it out in a fighting game, with J-Stars Victory VS being the last crossover game in 2014. Past Jump fighting games have included many more characters, and Bandai Namco plans on announcing them in the future.
Jump Force will be released in 2019 on Xbox One and PlayStation 4.
