YuYu Hakusho’s Hiei unleashes hell in new Jump Force trailer

Third Eye Unkind

Another day, another lightning-fast Bandai Namco trailer. This time we get our first look at YuYu Hakusho‘s Hiei, as he prepares to wage war in the publisher’s anime crossover fighter Jump Force.

Known as “The Master of the Evil Eye,” Hiei is a member of the dangerous group of fighters that together comprise Team Urameshi. Though an expert swordsman, it appears that Hiei’s Jump Force form will focus on the demonic one’s powerful telepathic abilities and command of the “Darkness Flame” to take down his superstar opponents. As is typical of Bandai Namco’s fighting game trailers, this preview is very much a “don’t blink” affair.

Hiei will be available to purchase in Jump Force this fall on PS4, PC, and Xbox One, and will arrive in the Nintendo Switch edition of the game in early 2021.
