Jump Force launches in February 2019, adds Yusuke and Toguro from Yu Yu Hakusho

Another Jump manga series joins the fray.

Jump Force

Jump Force will launch worldwide for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC via Steam in February 2019, and Yusuke Urameshi and Toguro from Yu Yu Hakusho will be playable characters, Bandai Namco announced.

Pre-orders will include a new lobby vehicle and three exclusive costumes.

In the Americas and Europe, a Collector’s Edition including the following bonuses will be available:

Collector’s Edition

Jump Force

  • A copy of the game
  • Special box
  • SteelBook case
  • Exclusive diorama featuring Naruto, Luffy, and Goku (30cm)
  • Three art boards (28 x 28cm)
  • Season Pass (nine additional characters) – Editor’s Note: This is shown in the European trailer, but not in the American promotional image (the American trailer does not feature the Collector’s Edition), so I am not certain if the Season Pass is included with the American version

Here is a look at the Yu Yu Hakusho characters, as well as the yesterday-announced Hunter x Hunter characters:
