As we approach the end of the year, and inch towards the launch of the upcoming anime brawler JUMP FORCE, Bandai Namco has revealed another new character.
Joining the roster is Asta from Black Clover, an expert swordsman, and wielder of the five leaf Grimoire. This is the latest addition in an ever-growing roster of Shonen Jump characters, as Bandai Namco defies the impossible and celebrates the 50th anniversary of Shonen Jump.
JUMP FORCE is still available for preorder in a few different editions. The standard edition comes with the base game of JUMP FORCE. There is also a digital deluxe edition that comes with the game and season pass with as of yet unannounced fighters. Finally, a pricey (and honestly pretty awesome), collector’s edition is still available, which comes with the full game, three art boards, an incredible statue of Goku, Luffy, and Naruto, and a steelbook. These three versions come in at $59.99, $89.99, and $259.99, respectively.
The most recent additions to the roster were Rurouni Kenshin, Saint Seiya characters, and Yugi Muto. Despite the already growing roster, we still expect to receive more news on upcoming launch fighters. Considering this is a celebration of a large group of franchises, more are probably still to come. While not much is known about post launch DLC characters, Bandai Namco have revealed that the season pass will include nine new fighters. Presumably, all of them will be available for purchase separately, with a discounted rate as the season pass price. We’re itching to get our hands on JUMP FORCE, so stay tuned for further updates on the anime brawler as they come in right here at Electric Bento. Until the Asta trailer drops, check out the Rurouni Kenshin trailer below!
JUMP FORCE launches February 15th for Playstation 4, Xbox One, and PC. Preorders are available here.
