When Jump Force launches in February it'll rock four original characters from Akira Toriyama


Kane, Glover, Navigator, and Galena

Jump Force is arriving a lot sooner than many expected: just this morning at TGS Bandai Namco has announced that the anime crossover fighter will be released worldwide in February 2019 (on PC, PS4, and Xbox One). It'll rock a collector's edition (the game, a case, a box, a diorama of Goku, Luffy, and Naruto, art boards, and a season pass with nine characters).

Bandai Namco also used this time to confirm the appearance of Toguro and Yusuke from Yu Yu Hakusho, as well as Kurapika and Kirua from Hunter x Hunter. Oh, and four new original characters from famed artist Akira Toriyama -- Kane, Glover, Navigator, and Galena. The real life Himeji Castle is additionally confirmed as a stage.

Expect a closed beta to run in mid-October.
