New Jump Force Trailer Delivers More Anime Mash-Up Action (VIDEO)
Anime fans were in for an epic surprise this past E3, as it marked the reveal of a huge inter-series crossover titled Jump Force. The game is to feature many fan-favorite Shonen Jump characters as the unique fighters throw down for the prize of ultimate glory. The likes of Dragon Ball‘s Goku, Luffy from One Piece, Naruto, and characters from Bleach are set to engage in battle, and now a recent trailer has shown new footage of the upcoming action-packed clash.
As seen below, there’s plenty for fans to build up their hype, as numerous characters are given a fittingly formidable time to shine. Presented in a sleek realistic style, each fighter pulls no punches in delivering their hardest-hitting moves, many of which are quite the vibrant sight to behold. This showcase is even more notable for the inclusion of Bleach alumni Ichigo, Rukia and Aizen, who were only featured in screenshots prior to this footage.
While one may get excited from the appearance of Death Note‘s Light Yagami and Ryuk, the two will unfortunately be sidelined to the game’s story, which has yet to be fully unveiled at this time. With all these heroes fighting amongst each other, one can’t help but feel an eventual team-up will take place, turning the battle towards an unimaginably powerful threat. At least that’s what happened in The Avengers. Jump Force will be released for PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One sometime in 2019.
