E3 2018: Fight as anime’s most powerful characters in Jump Force

I'm not sure if that's what Namco was envisioning when they brought the Greater Multiverse of Manga to a team brawler, but it was certainly my kind of wish fulfillment.

But that's not all, the Jump Force reveal trailer shows one more character that will join the ranks. I don't know about you, but this is definitely surprising for me. However, the name also makes sense, as One Piece, Naruto and Dragonball Z were all originally features in Shonen Jump magazine.

The trailer itself looks awesome and it confirms eight characters: Naruto's title character and his rival Sasuke, the perennial Dragon Ball protagonist Goku and his nemesis/pal Frieza, One Piece pirates Monkey D. Luffy and Roronoa Zoro, and Death Note's Light Yagami and the shinigami Ryuk; it's unclear if both Light and Ryuk are playable but the others certainly are.

Today Xbox is hosting its E3 2018 press briefing from the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles, and we got a sneak peek at the new game by Bandai Namco, titled Jump Force.

Jump Force does the Dragon Ball: FighterZ thing where every button is linked to an auto-combo, which means you can immediately start feeling like Goku with a few taps of the X button. So while the title isn't as exciting as it could be, it does harken back to these popular series' roots: their original manga in Weekly Shonen Jump.

Most fans may have recognized that the art style is very unique and doesn't really match up with any of the series present.
