Three new characters have been announced for Jump Force's roster.
Bandai Namco has announced that three characters from the Bleach series will be playable in Jump Force. They are Ichigo Kurosaki, Rukia Kuchiki, and Sosuke Aizen. You can check out some screenshots below to see these characters in action. It was also announced that there will be a stage in the game based off Hong Kong. In this stage, fighters will battle in the dazzling lights of the rain-soaked city, all in the shadow of Blackbeard's crashed ship.
Ichigo, Rukia, and Aizen are joining what is already turning out to be an all-star cast. Other confirmed characters include Luffy and Zoro from One Piece, Naruto and Sasuke from Naruto, and Goku and Frieza from Dragon Ball Z.
While Light Yagami and Ryuk from Death Note did make a brief appearance at the end of the reveal trailer, they will not be playable characters. Game producer Koji Nakajima stated in an interview with Siliconera that since the characters could just enter character names into the Death Note and kill them instantly, they would be "too strong." However, he did state that they will play a part in the game's story, which sees the real world and the Shonen Jump world merging together.
Jump Force will release in 2019 for PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One.
