Jump Force brings Shonen's best series together in a mysterious game | E3 2018
Jump Force, a new game by Bandai Namco, was revealed during Microsoft's E3 press conference—but no one knows exactly what the game will be.
One Piece, Naruto, Dragon Ball, and Death Note characters, areas, and abilities all took the spotlight in the trailer, but the game's genre wasn't revealed. At first glance, it appears to be a fighting game with elements of action-adventure mixed into the trailer.
While not much is known about the title at this time, it won't be long until Bandai Namco reveals more about it. Bandai has a history of turning Shonen Jump series into fighting games, such as its most recent title, Dragon Ball FighterZ. Bandai has also combined series in the past in the popular Jump VS. series.
Characters confirmed to be in the game so far include Naruto, Luffy, Goku, and Frieza—Light and the Shinigami from Death Note were teased at the end of the trailer, too. The trailer also shows the three main protagonists clashing in a final battle, which may point to the game possibly forcing our favorite heroes from the Manga series we know and love against each other in a big confrontation.
Other popular series that could eventually join the game include Bleach, My Hero Academia, Katekyo Hitman Reborn, and Gintama. Until Bandai Namco reveals more about the game, however, all information on the title should be taken with a grain of salt.
