Bandai Namco revealed Jump Force at Microsoft’s E3 2018 press conference.
The game brings together the biggest heroes and villains from the 50-year history of Shueisha’s Japanese Weekly Shonen Jump manga.
Jump Force features characters from manga and anime franchises across Dragon Ball Z, One Piece, Naruto, and other unannounced entries. Players will be able to pick a dream line up of three characters to make a fighting tag team. Brawls will take place against real world landmarks such as New York City’s Times Square and the Matterhorn in the Alps.
The lines of Shonen Jump’s world and our world have been blurred and evil is coming into the real world to take over humanity. Heroes like Naruto, Luffy, and Goku are coming together to save the world in stunning detail through the use of the Unreal Engine 4.
“With Jump Force, we are thrilled to bring to life Shueisha’s deep catalogue of beloved franchises that has produced some of the most popular pop culture characters to ever come from Japan,” said Eric Hartness, Vice President of Marketing for Bandai Namco Entertainment America Inc. “Jump Force gives fans of manga and anime a dream opportunity to see their favorite heroes come to life in our world in a globetrotting adventure filled with explosive battles of epic proportions.”
Jump Force will be available sometime in 2019 for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC.
