Best PS4 Games of February 2019
Jump Force is basically a dream come true for fans of action anime and manga, bringing together the most iconic Shonen franchises for one high-octane fighting experience. There are tons of franchises represented in Jump Force, including, Dragon Ball, One Piece, Naruto, Fist of the North Star, My Hero Academia, Dragon Quest, City Hunter, HunterxHunter, and more.
Jump Force features an original story that brings all these characters together, fusing their worlds with that of Earth to stop a mysterious force bringing all the universes together. The story will even feature original characters and villains created by Akira Toriyama, the man behind Dragon Ball itself.
In terms of gameplay, Jump Force is very similar to what you’d see in a game like Dragon Ball Xenoverse, but even more ridiculous and over-the-top. It’s a 3-vs-3 tag team fighting game that lets you swap between characters on the fly, and each one has a different moveset based around their fighting style or special abilities.
Each character has a crazy transformation, called an Awakening, that can super-power them in battle and bring about some bombastic visual effect. Examples of this are Goku going Super Saiyan, Ichigo from Bleach going into Hollow Mode, Deku from My Hero Academia going Full Cowling, Yugi from Yu-Gi-Oh summoning Slifer the Sky Dragon, and more.
Despite some awkwardness with the game’s realistic art style, Jump Force looks like it could be the anime crossover that fans have wanted for years.
