Anime and fighting game fans alike were treated to this new trailer earlier this morning when it was published to the official Bandai Namco Twitter account during Gamescom 2018. Bolstering the roster quite a bit more, the video showcases Gon and Hisoka from Hunter X Hunter, Sanji and Blackbeard from One Piece, and Vegeta from Dragonball. each character possesses a unique moveset that can be seen, including combos and supers.
The trailer also goes a bit further into showing fans what the story portion of Jump Force might look like. In the intro, Goku, Naruto, and Luffy are shown confronting Aizen, Frieza, and Sasuke — with an ominous black figure standing in the background. The captions for the footage describe the plot as a fight against villains to stop the collision of these anime worlds with reality, with even more stages based on real-life locations shown off.
Jump Force is still slated to release for Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and Steam sometime next year.
