A VIDEO GAME FRANCHISE AND A CULT CLASSIC JOIN JUMP FORCE

When Shonen Jump crossover fighting game Jump Force drops on February 15th, it will be the celebration of the publication lasting 50 years. Now to finally complete it’s roster, the last five characters have been announced.

Out of the five characters, only three are new additions. The first two characters to be added to the roster are actually the villains Kane and Galeena. They won’t be available at the start, but they are unlockable after beating the game’s story. They were designed exclusively for the game’s story by Akira Toriyama and revealed alongside Boruto.

The next new character is actually from the video game world: Dai from the game Dragon Quest: The Adventures of Dai. While Dragon Quest is a huge fan favorite RPG series in the West and Japan, Dai marks the first non anime/manga character to appear in Jump Force and is probably the easiest character to transfer over.

The last two characters announced are probably the most celebrated. Joining the series from JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure are Dio Brando and Jotaru Kujo. Just like in the anime both characters will have use of their “Stands”. Dio’s Stand (The World) can stop time and is a physical manifestation of all of his abilities (which include zombie and vampiric super-strength and durability). Jotaru is actucally from the Stardust Crusaders arc and his Stand (Platinum) can also stop time, but not to the extent as Dio. Ever since Jump Force was announced, fans wanted these characters to join.
