Bandai Namco wrote:JUMP FORCE announced for Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and Steam

Leading developer and publisher of anime videogames, BANDAI NAMCO Entertainment Europe has announced JUMP FORCE for the Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and STEAM. The greatest heroes and villains from the 50-year history of Shueisha’s influential Japanese Weekly Shonen Jump manga will battle against each other across iconic locations on Earth in this anime fighting game fan’s dream come true!

Featuring the world’s most popular and classic manga/anime franchises including DRAGON BALL Z, ONE PIECE, NARUTO, and many others, players will be able to create their three-character manga/anime dream tag team and take them into battle in hyper-stylish arena brawls set against backdrops of famous landmarks around the world including New York City’s Times Square and the Matterhorn in the Alps. Utilizing Unreal Engine 4, JUMP FORCE brings these titans of Japanese pop culture to life for the first time ever in stunning realistic detail.

The lines that separate our world from the JUMP world have been blurred, with evil forces spilling into the real world to rule over humanity. The greatest heroes known to manga/anime including Goku, Luffy, Naruto, as well as many others to be announced, must join forces to triumph over the forces of evil seeping in from the JUMP world.

“JUMP FORCE provides an incredible opportunity for players to discover the rich universe of Shueisha and battle in iconic real-world locations.”, said Hervé Hoerdt, Vice President Marketing and Digital at BANDAI NAMCO Entertainment Europe. “To celebrate the 50th anniversary of Shōnen Jump, Shueisha and BNEE are bringing together some of the most beloved manga and anime franchises of all time. We can’t wait to unveil more details on JUMP FORCE in the coming months.”

This came out a couple days ago. recoil is streaming it right now and will give us some impressions. I thought it was a DBFighterZ-type FTG, but it looks like it's just another one of the countless anime beat 'em ups that Bamco churns out, albeit a higher profile one. Like an Avengers-type game that assembles a bunch of their IPs. To me, a brawler will always be more exciting than an FTG, it's just that the licensed stuff that Bamco makes is generally subpar, which is why I am not excited. Nor do I find these characters interesting. The production values are a bit higher than is typical for this type of game though, so that's one thing in this game's favor.

Streamed this for a couple of hours: https://www.twitch.tv/videos/381602472
VOD: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=11AXsrlepmU

Jump Force is a simple 3D fighting game on par with the Dragon Ball Xenoverse games and I'm assuming with the rest of Bamco's licensed brawlers. The main mode is a story-heavy single-player campaign. All your favorite Shonen Jump characters look a bit off and the graphics look last gen, and it's disappointing to see this when a game like DBFighterZ can do right by its license. Despite that, there's some fun to be had especially if you're a fan of some of the IPs here. Each of the characters' special attacks are fun to watch and the fighting is enjoyable enough for an hour or two.
