Jujutsu Kaisen is set in a world where cursed energy creates powerful evil spirits who prey on humanity. Those with the power to control their cursed energy are called Jujustu Sorcerers, who use their cursed techniques to destroy supernatural monsters. The protagonist of Jujutsu Kaisen is a high school student named Yuji Itadori, who eats one of the fingers of Sukuna, one of the most powerful sorcerers of ancient times, and becomes the unwilling host to the villain of the series.

As of the time of writing, there are no pre-orders or editions available for Jujutsu Kaisen Cursed Clash.

Bandai Namco has confirmed that fifteen characters will be playable in Jujutsu Kaisen Cursed Clash, and a few of them have been featured in the official trailers and promotional artwork for the game.

  • Yuji Itadori: The bearer of Sukuna’s power and the protagonist of Jujutsu Kaisen.
  • Megumi Fushigruo: A user of the Ten Shadows technique who can summon powerful shinigami and use them as allies in battle.
  • Nobara Kugisaki: A lady who can beat her foes senseless with her hammers or use her Straw Doll technique to injure them from a distance.
  • Satoru Gojo: The user of the Limitless & Six-Eyes techniques is easily the most powerful sorcerer in Jujutsu Kaisen, and much like Saitama in the One-Punch Man video game, he’ll have to be toned down considerably to be put on the same level as the other fighters in the game.

The title card graphic for the game also showed Sukuna, Panda, Toge Inumaki, and Maki Zenin. While not 100% confirmed to be playable characters, their appearance in the first trailer confirms that they’ll be part of the game.

All Trailers for Jujutsu Kaisen Cursed Clash

Below, we’ve highlighted every trailer for Jujutsu Kaisen Cursed Clash that’s been released. The oldest is towards the bottom, with the latest trailer at the top, just underneath this paragraph.

The first trailer for Jujutsu Kaisen Cursed Clash was shown during the Bandai Namco Summer Showcase 2023. The trailer reveals the initial roster of four playable fighters and offers a look at the gameplay, with the Jujutsu Kaisen cast showing off the powers that they’ll possess in the game. The trailer also introduced the world to a game that feels like it should have been made so long ago, considering the popularity of the manga.

It bears mentioning that the cast will only have powers from the first few story arcs, as the Jujutsu Kaisen anime and manga are still ongoing. It’s unclear what the cut-off point is, but the anime’s first season is likely, especially as the game will have been in development for a few years now.

It’s surprising that it has taken this long for a Jujutsu Kaisen console & PC game to be announced, considering the series’ meteoric rise in popularity. Its setting and characters are well-suited for an anime fighting game. If the Jujutsu Kaisen keeps on rising in fame, then we’ll likely see many more games after Jujutsu Kaisen Cursed Clash, along with a ton of post-launch support for new characters.
