Jump Force welcomes My Hero Academia’s Shoto Todoroki next week

Seeing Red

It’s been well over a year since the launch of crossover fighter Jump Force, but publisher Bandai Namco isn’t done filling out its all-star cast. The next anime headliner stepping into the ring is none other than My Hero Academia’s Shoto Todoroki.

Todoroki is a quiet and reserved young student who carries himself with an aloofness that can be misinterpreted as arrogance. The product of an unhappy childhood, Todoroki tends to shut himself off from his fellow students, but is actually a loyal and faithful ally in battle, clearing the field with a juxtaposition of fire and ice-based powers.


As we can see from the above trailer, Todoroki will utilise these dueling elements in-game, with his ice abilities allowing for speedy maneuverability and the freezing of his opposition, while raging fireballs and streams of flame can cause colossal damage.

Shoto Todoroki will be made available May 26 as a part of the Jump Force Character Pass 2, or can be purchased separately for around $4. Jump Force is available now on PS4, PC, and Xbox One. It will launch on Nintendo Switch later in 2020.
