Namco Bandai has announced the “ultimate Jump game” in the latest issue of Weekly Jump. The publisher is preparing Project Versus J, a Jump series-based action game, in commemoration of the magazine’s 45th anniversary.

From left to right, Luffy (One Piece), Goku (Dragon Ball Z), and Toriko (Toriko).

Release date and platform(s) have yet to be announced.

Thanks, Kazu.

    Eh… Probably just a PS3 version of something like we saw on PS2 with Battle Stadium D.O.N. or whatever it was called that collaborated different shounen series.

      Now it’s Battle Stadium T.O.D.! ^^

      • http://soundcloud.com/tet-chan TetsuyaHikari

        Lol >_<

    • PodCiao

      I highly doubt it! Eighting/Q ent’s D.O.N. game sold nowhere near as much as the Jump! games on the DS. The Jump games were HUGE successes in Japan and it would be nonsensical for them to follow up on the much lesser known D.O.N game which was made by a totally different studio than the Jump titles.

        Eh… I’ve played some of the Jump games and they’re similar to D.O.N., so I don’t see why it matters, really. Just different characters. In any case, I wasn’t exactly implying that it would be a sequel or anything like that, I just meant you can probably expect the gameplay to be similar.

        i.e. Jump’s answer to Super Smash Brothers, etc.

        • PodCiao

          Well, actually, a lot of the hardcore Jump fans thought the D.O.N game was lacking. There’s a lot in the Jump games that make them more than just a Smash Bros clone. Those things were completely missing in the D.O.N games and thus a lot of people felt it was pretty bad. Myself included. Personally, I hope it is a direct sequel which expands on the gameplay features from the Jump games. I didn’t like D.O.N because I don’t like Smash Bros so the more different this new game is than those two, the happier I will be.

            The worst was the slot machine character unlock system. Really annoying. Plus they didn’t get the characters looks right. Looked a bit off.

    Please have something Digimon this time.

    • http://twitter.com/IMissBionix Jonathan

      Digimon is not a JUMP franchise.

      • http://twitter.com/saintgalgo Bruno Cesar

        Yeah, V-Jump, I guess.
        I’m just saying this because X Zone had nothing for V-Tamer’s 14th/Digimon’s 15th anniversary.

    Toriko… but no Bleach?

    • PodCiao

      Bleach has fallen in popularity quite a lot since JUS came out.

  • Angel wing

    3DS cross WiiU ?

  • Traveller

    Could you imagine if this game was MvC 3 style? * whistles at the thought of OTGs everywhere *

  • PodCiao

    yes

    YES YES.

    One of my top 5 favorite games of all time. I’ve been waiting since 2008 for a sequel and it has finally happened!

    THANK YOU BASED GOD

              And then you’ll get a second copy for me. Especially since it’s now confirmed for PS3/Vita.

              • KingOptimusOrigins111

                I wouldn’t get a second copy.

  • Mar Mar

    mnw tem que por o naruto no lugar do toriko, aaaaaahhh

  • EspadaKiller

    C’mon please release it on the PS3 and Vita too!

  • WiiStation360

    Right now I don’t care what system it’s for (hopefully all of them), I just want to know if it’s going to be released outside of Japan! Battle Stadium DON, Jump Super Stars, Jump Ultimate Stars, even Famicom vs Jump (an old school crossover), Japan makes incredible Jump crossovers but keeps them. I hope this see this release worldwide. (and to see some Naruto, Bleach, and classic like Yugioh Duelist, etc.)

  • WiiStation360

    I hope to see some Naruto in this game.
