What We Know: Jump Force

If you love anime and fighting games, then look forward to next week when Jump Force comes in with its diverse superpowered roster of characters to be the perfect dream come true to hardcore fans of the genre.

What is it?

Jump Force is a celebration of anime and Weekly Shonen Jump, a manga magazine that is shy of 51 years old. To honor the magazine and beloved genre, players will have a chance to play a variety of characters from new and old manga series with a fighting game twist.

The opportunity will arrive for people to pit their favorite characters against one another. If you had an argument about who will win in a fight, now you can show to your friend who is the most powerful.

Release date and platforms

Jump Force will launch on Feb. 15 for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.

Gameplay

Imagine Dragon Ball Fighter Z fusing together with Marvel vs. Capcom to make for an epic crossover battle. Three fighters on each side of the arena to fight it out to see who can make it on top.

Similar to later titles from Netherrealm Studios like the latest Mortal Kombat and Injustice 2, the stages will have interactable objects and transitions to vary up the map and gameplay.

The arenas will take set in real places like the famous Times Square in New York City and freezing cold mountains of the Alps. Like Dragon Ball Fighter Z, the action around these iconic locations will be set in 3D, so instead of a Mortal Combat style, players will have the ability to roam around for a rounded experience that gives more variety and strategy to combat.
