Shonen Jump is celebrating its 45th anniversary. Its kind of a big deal, so a big game should be tied to the event. Well, we have that title my friends. This is a Two on Two fighter coming exclusively to the Playstation 3 and PS Vita, in Japan! As of now, no release date has been set for America. Players may have to import this fighter. The Smash Bros inspired Jump Ultimate Stars, featured characters all from the same universe as well. Sadly that never made it stateside. I imported that DS title, the trouble was worth it. It featured a massive roster, tons of extras, a story mode, and plenty of stages to go around. If Namco-Bandai can cash-in on that experience with this new fighter, it might be worth a buy. While this is more of a team based game than jump, the allure of having these all-stars in the same game is there. This is something that shouldn’t be held back for any gamer. Check out the Trailer below.
Players will need to figure out the areas. When doing so, you can strategize. There will be special attacks specific for each stage. This looks like it’ll be another thinking mans brawler, especially if it boasts a huge roster of characters. The depth, locations, and visuals. That’s a lot of awesome! What other iconic locations will make the cut?
