Jump Force is really close to release, and it now has a new gameplay trailer meant to celebrate the release of the fighting game. The newest trailer, the launch trailer for the game, features a rapid roster rundown and plenty of action via some great fight scenes.

In case you somehow don’t know about this game, here’s a quick rundown. A weird warp in time and space has resulted in many different anime and manga universe crashing together. Two factions quickly form out of the iconic characters from these properties, and the two factions vie for dominance.
