Jump Force is looking to be a force of nature.
Publisher Bandai Namco has taken many popular Shonen Jump characters from series’ such as Naruto, One Piece, Dragon Ball, YuYu Hakusho, and more, and thrown them into a game that allows you to play as them and fight against these popular characters in the traditional BN formula. To many fans’ excitement, they’re allowing you to allow add your own character to this game.
A teaser was shown at Bandai Namco’s headquarters in Tokyo. An original female character who resembled One Piece’s Monkey D. Luffy was on display. She was also wearing his straw hat, shirt and had the same facial scar. Fanboys everywhere are losing their minds.
It’s not unusual for Bandai to allow players to create original characters in their anime-related titles. However, this game features so many characters from previous Shonen Jump manga and anime, so the possibilities here could be endless. We’ll just have to wait and see exactly how the character creation will work.
Jump Force is dropping on the PlayStation 4, Windows PC and Xbox One in 2019.
