Jump Force, the popular Shonen Jump fighting game, has just announced a new batch of DLC characters, and a lot of them are villains.
The characters were revealed in the latest trailer for the game, showcasing its new DLC character, All Might.
My Hero Academia's All Might is an iconic hero of justice and a mentor to Midoriya, already a character in Jump Force. He joins the also previously announced Yu-Gi-Oh's Seto Kaiba in Jump Force's DLC. However, they won't be alone.
Joining Jump Force's roster are Biscuit Krueger (Hunter X Hunter), Majin Buu (Dragon Ball Z), Madara Uchiha (Naruto), Trafalgar D. Water Law (One Piece), Hitsugaya Toshiro (Bleach), Grimmjow Jaegerjaquez (Bleach), Katsuki Bakugo (My Hero Academia)
The DLC characters are notably all additions from some of Shonen Jump's most iconic manga. Of note, two Bleach and My Hero Academia characters join the roster each, and the vast majority of them are antagonists.
Seto Kaiba, Trafalgar and Bakugo are rivals to the main heroes. Majin Buu, Madara Uchiha and Grimmjow are all very popular villains with huge fan bases. Their inclusion as DLC fighters indicates that Bandai Namco hopes to balance out the heroes in the game with a few more beloved antagonists.
The Character Pass DLC starts May 2019.
Jump Force is developed by Bandai Namco and is available now on the PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC.
