Bandai Namco released a bunch of news about Jump Force today. Not only did we finally learn when the game is coming out, we got even more details about what characters and Two new fighters are heading for the battlefield in Jump Force, and fans are going to be really happy. The news was revealed at Paris Games Week today, and it’s time to get hype.
Bandai Namco announced two new additions to the fighting game roster. Ryo Saeba from City Hunter and Kenshiro from Fist of the North Star are joining the fight. This puts the total count of characters on the roster at an impressive 28. Saeba and Kenshiro are two legendary manga and anime characters that have decades-long legacies.
