    About time! Was staring to get worried that reborn wasn’t going to get a character in this.

  • Kayseur

    I think this was the one I was waiting for the most (Tsuna), I was afraid he’d end up into a support character but it seems he’s not, I’m relieved.
    Now, one or two more characters I like and I’ll have to order this game.
    Maybe they’ll put a “rival” character of Reborn as well (Mukuro would be great, as he was my favorite).

    • refrain

      I think Hibari would be more popular.

      • Kayseur

        Yeah he might be, which is why I guess Mukuro will only exist as a hope. Thanksfully I liked Hibari as well so that’s fine.

  • Calvin Chikelue

    Tsuna and Oga? Well that’s a confirmed import. Anyone else they add is just icing.

  • kirby755

    Now I feel like spaming – X Burner, just for the sake of hearing him say it. But I still seen Tsuna being announced, since that’s one of the characters that everyone wanted.

  • echokanon

    If Sadaharu is a separate character then I’m indeed surprised lol

  • odis

    Sold!!! I really wanted oga and tsuna now its a must buy

  • $30632660

    You’re breaking my heart Namco, you’re going down a path I can’t follow because you won’t localize this game!

    I wanna play as Tsuna and Oga T-T!

  • EX+

    Tsuna!!! Finally. I’ve been waiting.

    • Lelouch Vi Britannia

      Me too. I hope they add in either Kyoya Hibari or Xanxus would be crazy Awesome.

      • EX+

        Hibari and Xansus both deserve it, but I’d prefer Hibari.
        Also, they should really make a full blown Reborn game.

        • Wesley Medina

          They have, 3 that i know of all on the psp Kateko Hitman Reorn Battle Arena 1&2 and the 3rd one Kizuna Tag Battle is garbage

    • Anime10121

      How is the Hitman anime? I’ve been recently looking into it, since J Stars announcement and so many people wanting Tsuna in, but the artwork is kinda back and forth between being awesome and being “Yugioh like” (i.e. not so awesome)… Is the plot and characters any good?

      • EX+

        It starts off quite slowly. Very slowly. The first 19 episodes feel like filler, but I’d watch a majority of those 19. A lot of characters and plot elements get introduced.
        After that, things get very interesting, second season especially.
        As for the characters, I think you’ll like them. Tsuna’s character development is very cool to witness.
        Most of the characters are good. You’re not going to find that many anime stereotypes in Hitman Reborn.
        I haven’t watched it all, but I know that the ending isn’t the same as the manga, just to let you know.

        • Anime10121

          Hm…sounds good, and a Jump show that doesnt have normal anime stereotypes…now I’m REALLY starting to take interest! I dont mind original endings as long as they are decent and close everything properly, but I do prefer shows that folllow their source…but oh wells :(

          I’ll put it in the backlogue :)

          • EX+

            But just to let you know, most of the females on the good side are barely useful. On the bad side? Quite a few good females actually. No where near at the level of Mikasa from AOT though.

            • Lelouch Vi Britannia

              Regardless though wait til you get to the fight with over the Vongola rings then shit gets real Good.

  • Learii

    more chars more!!!!!!!!!!!

  • Lelouch Vi Britannia



  • Lelouch Vi Britannia

    Oh sh*t X-Burner. This is gonna get nuts.
    Still awesome though.

    Way go Tsuna!!!

  • Trevor

    I wouldn’t mind xanxus 2 pistols

  • Lelouch Vi Britannia

    Now add in “Kyoya Hibari” and “Sh*t just got real”.

    Kyoya Hibari – He’ll bite you to Death.

    Nice to see both of these series getting represented in the game.

  • Hkig

    Now we just need Seiya, Allen, Kenshiro, and Jotaro

    • HeartUnderBlade

      Just Jotaro?? Why Not All The Jojos

  • Zancrow

    Yes, Oga!
    Beelzebub is one of the funniest Mangas in recent memory!

  • Budgiecat

    Okay they got Tsuna in finally; was not expecting Beelzebub

    That still leaves:

    Hokuto no Ken
    Jojo’s Bizarre Adventure
    Saint Seiya
    Bobobo Bo Bobobo
    Hell Teacher Nube
    Busou Renkin
    Black Cat
    Death Note
    Dr. Slump
    Samurai School Japan
    Shaman King
    Eyeshield 21
    Slam Dunk
    Prince of Tennis
    Rokudenashi Blues
    Mazinger Z lol

    • Budgiecat

      Dear cowardly nerdy downvoter! Show your face! There’s not a single planet in this universe you can hide from! I will find you…



    • Yami No Tenshi

      Sniff, I can’t see Nura, rise of the yokai clan in your list :'(

      And Psyren is also a good one in my opinion. Yugi can also be an interesting character (as he was in Jump Ultimate Stars).

      Can’t wait to see the next characters to take part in the fight ! :D

  • Lelouch Vi Britannia

    I hope for “Ao No Exorcist” while its from Jump Square it’s still in a way part of Shonen Jump.

    Oh God I just saw it in my mind the Intro for Rin. He pulls out “Kurikara” and the flames burst out.

  • jonathan rubio

    im glad u added stuna
