There are plenty of awesome women in manga, and since we aren't getting a magical girl version of this (even though we should), it would be nice to get some representation for the female characters that do exist in the franchises.
Check out the first trailer for Jump Force above.
Bandai Namco had a surprise title to announce earlier today with Jump Force featuring characters from Dragon Ball, Naruto, One Piece, Death Note, and others. "Jump Force gives fans of manga and anime a dream opportunity to see their favorite heroes come to life in our world in a globetrotting adventure filled with explosive battles of epic proportions". Looks like Bandai Namco is finally updating the tech used for anime games, which is also refreshing.
The release trailer for Jump Force premiered at this weekend's E3, revealing Shonen Jump faves in full fighting game mode. It's too early to tell, but clearly it doesn't have to be played that way, which is a boon for a plebe like me.
Monkey D. Luffy, Goku, Naruto, Frieza, Sasuke, and Zoro. I mean, all of these characters are owned by different publishers, right?
My biggest problem with shonen is that it tends to really badly sideline its female characters in games. Let us know in the comment section below!
