Jump Force confirms Deku from MHA and Asta from Black Clover
Bandai Namco has confirmed even more additions to the roster for their upcoming anime-heavy fighting game, Jump Force.
The two newest additions to already packed roster come to the battlefield from the lands of My Hero Academia and Black Clover. For the uninitiated here’s a simple recap. MHA exists in a world filled with heroes, each powered by their own Quirk. Izuku Midoriya ultimately creates his hero persona Deku after being given his own Quirk, fulfilling a lifelong dream of becoming a hero. And of course, hijinks ensue. A total of three anime seasons have been produced, with a fourth in production.
My Hero Academia is one of an increasingly popular and growing number of superhero anime and manga series.
Black Clover is a Japanese manga series about a young boy growing up in a fantasy land, one filled with magic and fantastical powers, but he seems to lack any sort of obvious abilities. The resulting popularity of the manga spawned multiple series of anime adaptations, as well as video game spin-offs. And now, characters are headed for a Bandai Namco fighting game. Asta is one of the main characters in the Black Clover series.
If you want to see some more characters in action, there’s plenty to gawk at in other trailers. During TGS 2018, characters from Yu Yu Hakusho and Hunter X Hunter were revealed. Yugi Moto from Yu-Gi-Oh! was another addition to be unveiled after that. Another recent character source was the Rurouni Kenshin property. Bandai Namco also recently revealed new characters and a sneak peek of the character creation process in another trailer.
Check out the trailer for Deku and Asta in Jump Force down below. Jump Force is going to be available for Xbox One, PS4, and PC, early next year on February 15.
