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:
- 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:
Killua is the third son of the Zoldyck family – the most infamous and deadly assassins of the world. He was expected to join them, but chased his own fate by running away from home to become a Hunter.
Kurapika also had a difficult family history – as the last survivor of his clan. They are both very strong fighters that value their friends and they will do anything to protect them!
Himeji Castle, one of the most famous sites in Japan, will also be a playable stage.
Bandai Namco also revealed four game-original characters designed by Akira Toriyama that are part of the game’s story.
Director Glover (voiced by Kazuhiro Yamaji) – J-Force Director
Navigator (voiced by Rie Kugimiya) – Navigator
Galena (voiced by Atsuko Tanaka) – Villain
Kane (voiced by Hiroki Yasumoto) – Villain
Finally, after announcing a PlayStation 4 closed beta for Japan earlier this week, Bandai Namco announced that a PlayStation 4 and Xbox One closed beta will run in the Americas and Europe at the same time, from October 12 to 14. In the Americas, sign-ups are available here. In Europe, spaces are limited and only open to members of the EP!C Rewards Club, and registration will close on October 7 at 11:00PM BST.
