Another game I thought people here should know about.

J-Stars Victory VS is an arena brawler akin to Anarchy Reigns and Gundam Extreme VS and is a Spiritual Successor to Jump Super Stars. The game was created to celebrate the 45th anniversary of Weekly Shonen Jump and originally was code named Project Versus J. The game features 2-on-2 player combat where the player teams up with a friend or the computer to fight against an opposing team. Each team also has a third slot left for summoning a support character. Each playable character will also have a transformation or something of the sort.

So far, the confirmed roster includes:

-Beelzebub: Tatsumi Oga
-Bleach: Ichigo Kurosaki, Rukia Kuchiki*
-Chinyuki Taro To Yukaina Nakama Tachi: Tarou Yamada
-Dragon Ball: Son Goku, Vegeta
-Gintama: Gintoki Sakata, Kagura*
-Hunter × Hunter: Gon Freecss
-Katekyo Hitman Reborn!: Tsunayoshi Sawada
-Kochikame: Kankichi Ryotsu
-Medaka Box: Medaka Kurokami, Misogi Kumagawa*
-Naruto: Naruto Uzumaki, Sasuke Uchiha
-Nisekoi: Chitoge Kirisaki*
-One Piece: Monkey D. Luffy, Boa Hancock
-Pyu To Fuku! Jaguar: Jaguar Junichi*
-Rurouni Kenshin: Hiruma Kenshin
-To Love-Ru: Lala Satalin Deviluke*
-Toriko: Toriko, Zebra
-YuYu Hakusho: Yusuke Urameshi

*Assist-only characters

Here’s the first two trailers which shows gameplay of the first 15 characters:


And scans of 9 recently revealed characters:

Any thoughts on the game so far? (it’s a tad over 50% complete at the moment)

WHERE THE FLYING FUCK IS KENSHIRO, THE SAVIOR OF THE CENTURY’S END?

Bleach (a largely discredited manga series) got a character in, but the character that basically influenced every Shonen series hasn’t been confirmed to be playable yet? Fist Of The North Star predates Dragon Ball, for God’s sake!

Will this get a stateside release?

You guys have to remember that Fist of the North Star is owned by the creator of the manga and not Jump itself. If Namco wants to put in Kenshiro, they need to deal with him first.

Anyways, any chance of Hentai Kamen or Jaco being playable? :P

^ There’s rumors circulating at the moment for a game called “Awakened Legends VS” That might be a localization of this game. Hold your salt though.
