As the headline here states, we now have a release date for Jump Force fresh out of Paris Games Week. The further good news for those looking to get into this new fighting game, Bandai Namco has opted to put in a time where there are no other games in its genre dropping and that would be February 15th. You know, right in the middle of all of those other larger games getting their releases too. I am sure there is a reason for it, but that is now when we can expect to be able to play Jump Force on our PS4, Xbox One, and/or PC. That is all good news to know now…
To go along with that announcement, we also have a new look at the Paris stage in Jump Force that we will be fighting in. Not only that, but also two more characters have been added to the roster as well. Again from more manga that many may not have heard of outside of true otakus. Those characters being Ryo from City Hunter and Kenshiro from Fist of the North Star. You can see them in action in Jump Force down below and see how Paris will be mixed into it all. Then get ready for the little bit longer of a wait that will be here now for launch.
Jump Force — Paris Games Week 2018
Bandai Namco Entertainment Europe is pleased to confirm that Jump Force will be released on February 15th, 2019, for PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC Digital.
Also revealed today is the Paris stage — the latest of Jump Force’s real-world stages. In a newly released trailer, the most romantic city on earth becomes the most dangerous, with mysterious elements from the Saint Seiya universe, such as the Clock Tower and the Twelve Temples, appearing in the French capital.
The trailer unveils new characters from two new manga brands to the game as well, Ryo from City Hunter, and Kenshiro from Fist of the North Star.
Ryo, equipped with his Colt Magnum, is a highly skilled gunman that rarely misses — as well as possessing extremely quick reflexes to dodge his enemy’s attacks. Kenshiro, alternatively, is an immensely strong expert user of the Hokuto Shinken martial arts — able to target and defeat his opponent swiftly…and brutally.
