Bleach’s Yoruichi Shihouin teased in new Jump Force trailer

Cat got your tongue?

In a somewhat awkward bit of marketing, Bandai Namco has released the teaser trailer for Bleach star Yoruichi Shihouin, who will be joining the roster of anime crossover fighter Jump Force in early 2021.

I say “awkward” as Yoruichi has already joined the roster, albeit very briefly. Back in November, the seductive semi-cat gal accidentally went live in-game due to a technical mishap, before her inclusion had even been announced by the publisher. Removed from the roster in double-quick time, many fans had the opportunity to check Yoruichi out, months before her development had even completed! Still, for those of you who missed her, here’s the mighty moggy in action.

Yoruichi Shihoin is the third fighter making up Jump Force’s second character pass, alongside previous DLC characters Hiei from YuYu Hakusho, Shoto Todoroki from My Hero Academia, and Mereum from Hunter x Hunter. The final DLC fighter – also revealed thanks to the aforementioned glitch, will be Giorno Giovanna from the legendary anime JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure.
