The Shonen Jump brawler from Spike Chunsoft and Bandai Namco, Jump Force, is opening the doors for tons of manga stars to enter the fighting arena. With characters from popular anime shows like Dragon Ball Z, Yu-Gi-Oh, One Piece and Naruto, the roster just added yet another fighter to the roster: Asta from Black Clover.
Asta marks the first character entry from the series Black Clover, but not the only featured series with only one character on the current line up. Jump Force takes the hectic 3v3 team based fighting style and allows players to take on the role of a slew of different manga characters.
The official list has now grown to a whopping 29 characters from 12 different series. The current line up is as follows:
Dragon Ball Z
Fist of the North Star
Hunter × Hunter
Monkey D. Luffy
Yugi Moto/Yami Yugi
Yu Yu Hakusho
So far, Dragon Ball Z and One Piece are bringing the most characters from their respective series to the table, but with just under two months to go until its release, we should expect more announcements regarding the rest of the roster soon. Other characters from other series, such as Light and Ryuk from Death Note, will also make their appearance across the game’s story mode, but as of right now, will not be playable characters.
Jump Force is set to release in NA on February 15, 2019 for the PS4, Xbox One and PC.
