Doing this again since the last one got locked.

J-Stars Victory VS is an arena brawler akin to Anarchy Reigns and Gundam Extreme VS and is a Spiritual Successor to Jump Ultimate Stars. The game was created by Namco Bandai and Spike Chunsoft to celebrate the 45th anniversary of Weekly Shonen Jump. 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.

There is also a story mode where you can meet many other characters who aren’t playable or assists. These characters aid you on your quest by giving side quests so you can obtain items to enhance your fighters or the ship you travel on, The Memorial Jump. Once you go through 4 different paths in the story and fight some people, you’ll get to the J-Festival!

Here’s a video showcasing most of the characters revealed so far:

Here’s characters that aren’t in the video, like villains:

Fist of the North Star:

And Story Mode NPCs:

The game comes out March 19th!

Huh, so Kenshiro and Raoh made it in? Considering the licensing issues, this is a miracle!

man, what I like about this is that they got both JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure AND Fist of the North Star in this game.
now all they need to add is Jotaro and DIO and i’m fucking set.

Due to a screenshot on the website, people are guessing there’s 56 characters in total. (including supports) At the moment there’s 42 characters, so that leaves 14 slots. With this thought in mind, I think I got a good wishlist for the final 14 characters:

Playable Wishlist:
Dr. Slump: Arale Norimaki
Kinnikuman: Kinnikuman
Sakigake!! Otokojuku: Momotaro
Bobobo-bo Bo-bobo: Bobobo
Baoh: Ikuro Hashizawa
Dragon Ball: Piccolo
One Piece: Roronoa Zoro
Toriko: Starjun
Hunter × Hunter: Killua Zoldyck
JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure: Dio Brando

Support Wishlist:
Yu-Gi-Oh!: Yugi Mutou
Eyeshield21: Sena Kobayakawa
Ring ni Karero: Ryuuji Takane
Dream Soldier Wingman: Kenta Hirono

I think new characters might be revealed today, but I’m not sure.

Feb 12, 2014 at 02:12AM EST

I knew there was going to be some reveals. Luckyman is quite unexpected…

The next (and possibly last) batch of characters!

Momotaro, Ace, Killua and Hiei are playable while Edajima is an assist! Also, the scan shows that there’s gonna be a lot of cross-dialog, even when the characters are teaming up for crossover attacks! Here’s an example from the scan:

Killua: Arale, are you ready!?

New trailer, with the whole roster of 52 characters! (39 playable, 13 assists) It also shows off the J-Adventure story mode, the Victory Road arcade/challenge mode, the card-based system and a ton of other stuff:

Luckyman reminds me of a Superhero version of Homestar. Anyways, this looks like an awesome game. I hope the import prices are cheap at the moment…

Okay, with that trailer, people we able to configure what the game’s cast looks like so far:

Color-coded note:
-Red: Playable characters
-Blue: Assist characters
-Purple: Attack characters
-Green: Story mode characters

This game seems bigger than I thought. I wonder how long they’ve been working on it.

Feb 24, 2014 at 12:04PM EST

It’s everyone’s favorite Mary Sue, Kurokami Medaka!

Cant wait to play as her!

Here’s a vid showcasing Nube, Medaka, Taro, Jonathan and Toriko:

Dat Taro ultimate…

Some new scans also appeared, showcasing Bobobo and his ally Don Patch:

Also found a few more characters to add to the roster: Red playables, Blue assists, Yellow moveset assists, black monsters and green NPC’s.

Also, a new trailer hits on Monday, according to this:

That’s a lot of info, so stay tuned!

I think this is the final J-Stars trailer. It’s 12 minutes long and full of character interaction, like Luffy and Luckyman, Toriko and Gon, Gin and Joseph, Medaka and Raoh, Goku and Taro, and so much more so sit back and enjoy all this great action!

Man, this can rival the size of any Super Robot Wars trailer…
