Today Bandai Namco Entertainment announced on social media that Jotaro Kujo and Dio Brando will be playable in Jump Force.
Both characters come from JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure, a manga by Hirohiko Araki that debuted on the cheap pages of Weekly Shounen Jump in 1987.
The series was then spun off onto the more adult-oriented publication Ultra Jump in 2005, and it’s still being serialized, making it one of the most longevous manga series out there.
Of course, it generated a ton of additional media including light novels, TV series, OVAs, and even exquisitely trashy live-action movies.
The addition of the new character was teased a few days ago by using a very old meme that also appeared for a long time in the anime series, so the writing was on the wall.
You can check out the screenshots below. If you want to see more of Jump Force, you can enjoy more gameplay from a few days ago, the latest trailer introducing Boruto and Dai, a story trailer and the first reveal of Dai, the introduction of Boruto and the rest of the gang from Naruto, the trailer featuring Deku from My Hero Academia and Asta from Black Clover (alongside some screenshots of Yusuke Urameshi’s demon form), another one featuring the story and character customization, and some more gameplay showcasing the multiplayer lobby.
Jump Force launches in two weeks, more precisely on Feb. 15, 2019, for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC via Steam.
