Thanks, Game Jouhou.

    LoL the monobrow guy XD

  • whiteferrero

    nice gintoki’s in! i bet he’s just gonna complain he doesn’t have a super move.

    • shogunknight

      Gintoki: ‘You bet i will!’

    • Nice Boat

      What do you mean? He has several moves like

      1. Giving up

      2. Kamehameha

      2. JUST DO IT!

      • MasterSensei

        He also has Getsuga Tensho as well as a bankai and he does become Yamcha two years in the future.

    Am I dreaming?

  • Karl Josef

    woa! so many mainstream anime!
    many people will enjoy this game xD

    Gintoki is a big “yes” for me.

  • Zuhri69

    GINTOKI!!!!!! But, seriously. No one knows how much I love this man. (No homo).

  • DongT

    shiroyasha vs battousai? GOD YES

  • refrain

    So he’s not using neo armstrong cyclone jet armstrong cannon. But well, a scooter is fine too!

    • MasterSensei

      I want him to use Kagura’s Harley Davidson as a combo… that would be amazing as hell

  • SpectralRaiden

    C’mon Yoh Asakura! And I know it’s not part of Jump but Edward Elric would be another awesome character to add.

    • MasterSensei

      Now I want all characters on Shaman King to be there because they were all awesome. I want to see how Ryo and Tokagero would be in this or Len and June…except for Lyserg (never liked that guy) or the X-laws. I’m guessing that if they were going to add shaman king characters it would either be Yoh or Hana from Shaman King Flowers since it’s newer. AND ALSO ZEKE would be cool to play as even if he might be over powered.

  • yuina

    Hell yes. Now just give us a release date already.

  • Jontaku

    God damn, Gintoki is sexy.

    • fyi1191

      You mean his scooter there? Yep, it’s sexy.

  • Dede Ogbe

    Love how Gintoki is running like his life demanded on it from Goku. I think he knows better anyone the power of the Kamehameha. This has made me pre-order the game. I hope they add villains from the series into the mix as well.

  • LastBoss

    Anpan Anpan!!!

  • Calvin Chikelue

    Awesome! They’re going in the right direction with this game. I’ll have too import it. Hoping for Gon, Neuro, and Tsuna make it in.

  • http://www.psvitadirect.com/ Kurisu Makise

    OH MY GOSH YES! I totally said Gintoki in the other topic. Every time I make a request, Namco Bandai delivered! Alright, throwing in my chips for Yami Yugi next! Import for this game totally confirmed too, ah just hope there isn’t any serious DLC =(

    • MasterSensei

      I would rather Yusei Fudo but I don’t see how they would work in this game? They don’t attack people directly (unless they don’t have any spell/trap or monster cards on the field LOLOLOLOL)

      • Heartless

        Have you ever saw Yugi in Jump Super/Ultimate Stars? If he’s here (Yusei Fudo can be a background character for all I care) he’ll be playble like that, I guess.

        Here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4yJIdQ1BU3Q

        • MasterSensei

          It actually looks pretty cool. Before they announced J-Stars I never knew there was a previous game so I couldn’t think about how he would work against characters like Goku or Naruto.

      • http://www.psvitadirect.com/ Kurisu Makise

        Heartless definitely covered it well. Summoning the God Cards, using traps/magic cards, skills based on the millennium puzzle, etc.

  • Solomon_Kano

    Gin was expected, but nice to have him confirmed. Ryo-san’s a cool addition, too.

    Now gimme Urameshi, Tsuna, and Bossun, Namdai, and my hype will be through the roof!

  • Demitri Maximoff

    That’s one thing I wanted to hear,finally I can confirm that Im buying this one.
    Gintoki here I come

  • Lelouch Vi Britannia

    When will they confirm to add in Rin Okumura, Seiya,Jotaro,Kenshiro, and Yusuke. then i’ll buy it, but Kenshin, Naruto, Goku, and Luffy are the few reasons why I want this game.

  • Sol badass

    Haha. Gin as expected. I like how he is running from goku in that comical fashion. Looks like the leaf village is one of the maps too :)

    • zangetsukakashi

      and there’s also the Vegetable Sky map from Toriko on the left-side where Ryo is.

  • MasterSensei

    How is Gin going to explain to Goku that he took his Kameha and that he is secretly Yamcha? or Explaining to Ichigo how he too has the final getsuga Tensho and a Bankai move? really looking forward to this game. XD

  • KnifeAndFork



    Yusuke (YYH)
    Jotaro, Dio (JJBA)
    Kenshiro (Fist of the North Star)
    Arale (Dr. Slump)
    Sora (Hitman Reborn!)

    Also will there be strikers/helpers/assists like in JUS? Or just 2 on 2? Would be nice to have the Death Note and Eyeshield 21 characters in there again (even though they don’t really fight)

  • Himiko

    If you can add Kamijou Touma, then I will buy this.

    • Jianno Jum Hedriana

      Touma is not shounen jump so I guess its not in your buy list

      • Himiko

        I know that it’s a pipe dream. :p

  • abcmocca .

    no doraemon, no fun

  • Zenkai

    Needs Yusuke, and Seiya.

    Also Vegeta, Kakashi, and Kenpachi

  • SOLOmio

    knew it kankichi Ryotso! i hope they put some karate or judo moves sense his good with those. Now Tsuna and the Psiren dude and the octopus and Nagisa from assassination classroom.

  • SOLOmio

    it needs jojo!
