Looks very much like a storm game. Glad it's on PC.

Looks REALLY underwhelming in Gameplay and sound (which lacks of impact) but, early work so...

Probably the closest thing to a "What IF we PLATINUM´G Shonnen Anime" that i have seen so far.

Tho, this realistic graphic style doesn´t look good on Dragon Ball or One Piece characters (imo) but Naruto looks allright, i like.

My one and only hopes  for this game is a playable Sanji and Don Patch. That's all. Maybe Gyro Zeppeli if the stars align.

You got the names of the series completely wrong.  DBZ is actually DBX.

(Watching without sound)
The backgrounds and wind effects are really pretty, but so much sparks and particle effect. I also think Kurama's fur and the hyper detailed weaves on the cloth look super weird for the anime style. I'm already not that fond of hyper realistic cloth weave in most games (like Tekken, for one), but this really clashes with the anime faces.

Kinda hard to get excited for this when it will be another generic anime arena fighter.

Fighers so far. why they didnt use Naruto storm arts style :S the game would be10 times better in its artistic design.

Ok, so I just have to ask this.  Is the fact they're actually trying to have this all take place in reality just a long lead-up to an "Anime is real" joke?  Because that would be brilliant.

But uh, yeah, it's another anime arena fighter, but trying to look hyper-realistic, with typically only makes a handful of anime things really cool, and the rest really awkward.  Ichigo's probably going to look badass, and they got Naruto down pretty well, but Goku and Frieza are all weirdly slimey and Luffy is out of my eldritch-fueled nightmares.  That gear form is scarier than anything any horror game's put out.  And it'll probably only be topped once Arale shows up.

Also.

Confirmed : Death Note characters aren't playable, they're just here for the story (well, they'll probably be strikers because this game will definitely have them if they're making models like that).
Also there was some gameplay of Zoro vs Sasuke (http://www.siliconera.com/2018/06/13/jump-forces-latest-gameplay-session-shows-intense-zoro-vs-sasuke-battle/) showing off a couple notable moves but it wasn't very interesting, the specials are kinda low key for a shounen fighting game (Sasuke's Amaterasu is just setting the ground on fire for a while and that's it, and his Susano'o (http://www.siliconera.com/2018/06/14/jump-force-gets-new-gameplay-mash-trailer/) just does like one boring Chidiori and that's it). Hyper realistic backgrounds are still pretty, but really disconnected from the anime action. I was thinking with Naruto's and Goku's cloth and Kurama's fur that there might still be placeholder textures from Unreal Engine 4, but I don't see them walking this back.

animations look really bad so far and i dont see alot of new sounds, alot of the sounds a reused from previous games

gameplay looks pretty uninspired.

reaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaally not looking too hot. i hope it's a pre pre pre alpha because hot damn this looks like a mess so far to show off at e 3.

I'm pretty sure those parts are default stuff that will get changed later because they probably only started working on it very recently so they didn't bother yet with sounds and UI and that sort of stuff. Same with the particle effects. I'm glad developers get a bit more comfortable showing off stuff that's really early (like Ubisoft having the balls to show that ugly ass "this is Sparta" kick as soon as Odyssey was leaked, it was hilarious), compared to not showing anything for years because they're afraid people will call them out on how unfinished it looks and marketing tells them they can only show perfect finished stuff and that's fucking stupid and really infuriating and marketing should get hanged, but it's a bit frustrating that they don't say anything about what's just default placeholder and will get changed later on. Baby steps, I guess.

Ichigo, Rukia, and Aizen (https://www.pcgamer.com/bleach-characters-join-jump-forces-mash-up/) have all been confirmed playable.  There's also a stage set in Hong Kong that has Blackbeard's raft crashed into it.

Ok, playable Rukia helps patch over the irritation at Goku swapping Ichigo's Shonen Trio spot for the reveal for me.  And as I figured, the more realistic look would fit them much better than those shown so far too.  This makes me happy to hear, I'll gladly play these three.

Goku swapping Ichigo's Shonen Trio spot
... I'm sorry, are you saying you were expecting the poster shonen trio to not have Goku but Ichigo - Naruto - Luffy ? Ichigo's popularity dropped the day Bleach ended and how can you expect Goku to go anywhere ever.

Ugh, this particle explosion overload is just getting ugly.

Post by: Long John Killer on July 03, 2018, 12:34:19 am
I expected Goku to be within his own anime bracket.  It's freaking Goku, either place him by himself because of Dragon Ball's ridiculous popularity/influence or with similar era anime characters like Yusuke.  Regardless of Bleach as a series dying, it, One Piece and Naruto were a trio for the longest time.  It feels off to have Goku there at the same level with two shows inspired by his.

Preferably you'd have all four on the cover, really, but it just makes more sense to me for them to keep the Shonen Jump trio together over just the biggest names.

Post by: Long John Killer on July 03, 2018, 12:55:45 am
Precisely.  The last game familiar to this I played was a bit of J-All Stars, which kept Goku with the likes of Kenshin, Yusuke and Arale, with later series like Naruto, Bleach and One Piece grouped together and earlier stuff like Kenshiro off by himself.

This is just reminding me what an absolute clusterfuck Bleach's final arc was, because I genuinely can't remember why Ichigo is dressed that way or why his sword is shaped like that.  Rukia's bankai looks good here, though.

FWIW Black Clover’s manga is pretty good.  Though you’re right, the anime is unwatchable because they decided to have Asta voiced by a race car with a faulty transmission.

Wonder if he'll fight exclusively with children's trading cards or if they'll be throwbacks to the weapons he used early on the manga (explosive ice air hockey puck, vodka and lighter, poisonous scorpion, knife).

Looks like new moves for the old characters from Victory VS. Also that Himeji Castle stage is pretty.
Toriyama's new characters look like expies of the Xenoverse demon chick and Golden Freeza/Cell with Hit's moody attitude.

So far it seems, at least to me right now, that they are focussed more on the battle shonen franchises with fewer franchises represented but each with more fighters, as opposed to say, J-Stars Victory VS (for example, HunterxHunter now has 4 characters instead of 2 and an assist and One Piece now has a whopping 5 characters, whereas in J-Stars only the really popular franchises capped at 3 characters). Of course it's still kinda early to really tell how the roster is shaping up, I just hope they don't do away with the more comedy-oriented characters like Ryotsu or Bobobo completely.

On that note, if Bobobo is included, I hope Don Patch will be his own playable character this time. It would also be really cool to have Piccolo as a third DBZ hero.

I don't know why, I really get this bad feeling that this game is made to cash in on loads of DLC with really bad support.
Much like how Gundam Versus went.... (It's dead after half a year, the news page was never updated).
It couldn't compare to the Japan only Gundam Extreme VS series.
They are already working on Extreme VS 2, which prolly is Japan only, while they released this bland game upon us.

The realistic style, trailer music, DLC promotions etc all seem to try to appeal to a western audience.
I mean, where are the typical Shonen songs? The game looks and sounds all dark and gritty, like it's some Hollywood movie.

Hopefully this isn't what I am afraid it will be. I really want this game to be a huge fun packed success.
Just wanted to state my disappointment in Gundam Versus and how the trailers of this game has the same signs all over it.

Did the previous Jump games have any actual DLC ? I only remember Victory VS getting some random arcade mode and stuff on the + version on PS4.

Bandai is the one doing the DLC for TV series games. (I mean, not the manga games that Jump specifically says to make for some random celebration)

It was the same thing with Xenoverse.
Dragonball Z is just that popular, combined with being able to create your own character basically means people will be sticking around, especially since they are giving reasons for people to do so.

About the dlc etc, what I mean is. With Gundam it just seemed like they wanted a quick buck out a starved community and sell some dlc while they were at it.
(I mean, it's the first Gundam VS game for westerners).

Jump Force seems like it's trying to do the same, sell strong appeal towards a western audience.
On top of that, Bandainamco (or rather just Bandai) has a pretty bad rep in supporting it's western audience.
Their Epic store has been under construction for over a year lol.

But alas, I hope this is just me being salty and they are going to give it's fans something to enjoy!
Fingers crossed.

So I got to play in the closed beta, and I gotta say, the confusing art choice does work exceedingly better in motion, but the excessive amount of particle effects going on all at once it does leave quite a hefty bit of lag, which is never a good thing.  Luckily it's not a consistent thing, could go a few matches with the likes of summoning Kurama or getting a Super Spirit Bomb off, the heaviest lag inducers I could find, without any change in the gameplay, but when it does hit it hits the framerate hard.  Played it on a regular boring old Xbox One, don't know what kind of difference you'd get across Xbox One X, PS4 or PS4 Pro though.  Actual gameplay was fine arena brawling, but I don't understand why they gave us three team members when you can only call for an assist from the next one on rotation.  And since you all share one healthbar, it doesn't feel like you'd get much time to make use of all three of them before you either kill the opponent or are beaten yourself.

The hub world can still use a few fixes too.  Camera can get into your character's model if too close, NPCs not being solid, the basic stuff that can be ironed out.  Some of the text boxes have typos too, but it's a beta, not going to dig too deeply on them on simple fixes like that.

It seems to be a hit, a lot of reactions.

Kenshin, Shishioh, Piccolo, Cell, and avatar customization. Ryuk and Light show up, but it doesn't seem to say anything about whatever assist system the game uses, since they already sayd Ryuk and Light wouldn't be actual playable character (the text next to them immediately talks about the avatar system).

Well, it's good to see that Rurouni Kenshin isn't being swept under the rug after Watsuki got busted.

It's really weird to me that they've now got five Dragon Ball characters, five One Piece characters, four from Hunter x Hunter, and a bunch of classic series from the 80s and 90s with playable characters, and yet nothing from any of their current hits.  I would have thought for sure that My Hero Academia or Black Clover would be the ones they'd want to get out there first to promote the game.
Title: Re: Jump Force (Naruto, DBZ, One Piece, Death Note)
Post by: Long John Killer on November 18, 2018, 07:08:38 pm
Probably a bit of a backpedaling after J-Stars went a little overboard with characters that unless you diligently followed Jump were not at all familiar with.  Except Ryo, I'd presume everyone on here now is at least recognizable in the West, and even then City Hunter was apparently big in parts of Europe.  They are trying to push the game's story being tied to the real world, and getting characters that you'd actually know would help in that aspect.

That said, Jojo characters still being a no-show is truly odd.  I'm indifferent to the series, but you're not physically allowed to be online these days and not know something about it because its all over the place.  All the more so that they have the character templates from J-Stars for a handful of them already, just port and update and add the meme characters with Jotaro and Dio and you'll have everyone's attention.

I mean, you're right that they don't need to overload it with fresh faces from brand new, current series.  But MHA has been selling like gangbusters worldwide; at the very least anybody who's interested in this game will be familiar with that series.  You'd think that Midoriya and Bakugo would've shown up by now.
Title: Re: Jump Force (Naruto, DBZ, One Piece, Death Note)
Post by: Long John Killer on November 18, 2018, 07:40:32 pm
Yeah, that'd I'd agree on.  Still haven't caught much of My Hero Academia myself, just the first three episodes.  Wrote it off as the new Naruto made in response to the MCU doing so well so copying the superhero genre on top of it, but evidently it grew into something better.  It sure did something right if it had its own brawler game coming out too.  Maybe they want to put some distance between that game's release and this though, save it for DLC?

I dread to imagine what All Might would look like in this game's art design though, given what we got with Toguro.

Post by: Person Man on November 18, 2018, 08:24:29 pm
Haven't gotten around to the MHA anime yet, though I keep meaning to.  The manga is genuinely great, though.  I can see where the comparisons to Naruto come in, but the biggest difference is that the main characters are actually well written and interesting and not stupid and terrible all the time.

:EDIT:  At the risk of running off topic I realize I should probably qualify that because it sounds bad the way I said it.  I did enjoy Naruto the series as a whole, I just can't stand Naruto the character.

Post by: Person Man on November 18, 2018, 11:17:47 pm
The way I always figured, you could fix every problem Naruto had by getting rid of the main characters.  Just throw out Naruto, Sasuke, and Sakura entirely, make Kakashi the main character, and let the story unfold the same way.  Naruto minus Naruto.
Title: Re: Jump Force (Naruto, DBZ, One Piece, Death Note)
Post by: Long John Killer on November 18, 2018, 11:30:45 pm
Doesn't one of the MHA characters have comically oversized grenades for hands?  I mean, design logistics doesn't really top the list of necessities for superheroes, it's their character and story that makes them memorable and their morals and lessons as to why they stick, outfits are just the base attraction, but some of the character designs you have to admit are just stupid.  I mean, there's a guy who has disembodies hands holding him back.

I mean, I like stupid, Spawn's stupid, but come on.

Also I guess I'm also contributing to this off-topicness so yeah, Kenshin and Shishio looks great in this game.  This is what I mean on the game's texture work, some characters just transition into it so much better than others.  Ichigo, Kenshiro, Kenshin here, they take the realistic approach much better than those with their own more uniquely stylized hair and eyes.
Title: Re: Jump Force (Naruto, DBZ, One Piece, Death Note)
Post by: Person Man on November 19, 2018, 02:25:07 am
Not his hands, they're wrist gauntlets.  That guy's a tryhard wannabe badass who generates explosions so he designed his hero costume with a grenade motif.  IIRC, it's not treated as being a good design in-universe, either. Everyone else thinks it makes him look like a dumb edgelord.

Back on topic, the amount of characters each of the big series is getting makes me wonder about when Gintama inevitably shows up.  Maybe this will finally be the crossover game that lets Shinpachi be playable instead of just making jokes about his glasses.

Great googly moogly that art style really highlights how freakin' huge Deku's eyes are.  XD

Little bit disappointed to see Hancock in this one again.  Partly because One Piece doesn't really need any more characters when there's a shitload of series that have yet to show up, but also because she hasn't appeared in the manga in nearly a decade and there's a ton of other OP characters that are way more important than her they could use.  I guess that's what the power of boobs does to a fanbase. At least it's not freaking Ace.

She was in J-Stars, it was likely easier to port and update to expand the roster than start from scratch.

I suppose once again I'm reminded I should at the very least check out Black Clover and give Me Hero Academia a better shot than just three episodes.  It's a shame that they couldn't keep the colorization of Deku's hair from the anime transitioned over to the game, with it black except the tips of his hair being green.  I liked how it looked, now it's just dark green throughout.  Ah well.

Anyway, here's the gameplay teaser for Deku and Asta.

Well, Jump kind of lacks female characters that has mass appeal, so yeah.
Playable females in J-Stars were laughable.

Like what? Arale, Boa and Medeka?
Medeka isn't even anything near popular or iconic either.
Funny they didn't include Rosario Vampire though (Akashiya?), she was at least popular at some point...
So having Boa is at least somehow adding variety to the list in some way.

Well, Jump being male centered doesn't have many important female characters, I guess.

I mean most popular and or iconic franchises also have female leads. Think Rukia, Nami, Sakura or the like. I think Boa is pretty much there to add more female characters yeah, and she was probably easier to port over instead of making Nami a playable fighter. There's also Jolyne from JoJos and the entirety of Claymore.

Speaking of which,  with how many new characters Bleach, One Piece and Dragon Ball got, I really wonder if they are going to add more Naruto characters. I figured Madara would be a shoe-in, given that they seem to be including more villains this time around but I'm not -too- familair with Naruto.
Title: Re: Jump Force (Naruto, DBZ, One Piece, Death Note)
Post by: Byakko on December 23, 2018, 08:02:40 pm
There's no way Madara doesn't make it, then probably Kaguya, and maybe Pain - except there won't be 3 villains per franchise, 2 might be okay, so Kaguya and Madara it is.
That means Jojo will have Dio and Dio.

Claymore.

But then you got Sabo and Boa instead of Nami, Usopp or any other strawhat x'D

Up until this point I just count 1213(?) different series, which are all popular worldwide,
so I am pretty sure JoJo will get his share in this game.

And talking about financial, I am sure they will have a lot planned as dlc.
No way they would miss out cashing on Broly, he's a money magnet.

Eh.  Considering it was considered weird enough they went for Dragon Ball Super content, despite it being more focused on the Shonen Jump content of Dragon Ball, thus Z content, I don't see them jumping for a Dragon Ball Super movie character, nor do I see them going for the previous DBZ non-canon movie variation of him simply because this new one is specifically here to replace it going forward.  Plus he's already being used for that exact purpose over in Xenoverse 2.

I'd have to imagine if there's DLC, it would pragmatically be additional content for series already chosen to be in.  Like Seto Kaiba or Kuwabara or something.  Because if both sides wanted their series to be in a crossover like this, it would have been chosen from the get-go.

Well, I was referring more to how One Piece actually got the monster trio of Luffy/Zoro/Sanji instead of shafting the entire crew for the likes of Ace and Sakazuki like J-Stars did, but point taken. 

That, and the fact that we're getting individual series mainstays like Renji, Piccolo, and Kurapika that usually get shafted in the crossovers.

I don't know what it is about Luffy that unsettles me so, but I can even take Yugi's ginormous pupils more serious than Luffy looking like his eyes are plastic bits glued on to his face.  Heck, Cameron's CGI Alita is less off-putting.  And that thing's just confusing.

Scans will be fun, but beyond OCs specifically for this game or those last few returning cast members from the past game who haven't shown like the Jojos, I don't expect much brand new content to be shown, just further details on what we do and hype build-up.

Yeah, that lack of shading on that eye next to everyone's dark blanket looks weird. And he's the only one wearing a hat that's supposed to shade his whole upper face, but no, he almost looks like he's still in pencil mode. This lighting is just all over the place, must be that dumb particle engine.
I do expect a handful of tertiary IPs being revealed at once at the last minute like "oh yeah and these guys too I guess but who cares look at Luffy" but not even as many as the last game. Focusing on the less popular characters would only make sense in a game that wants to show off a sensible fighter gameplay. Also yeah Jojo. I don't know why they're ignoring it when there's an anime they can both promote and ride on at the same time (not that I expect Giorno).

I'm expecting a handful of newcomers from the series that are already announced (Hiei and Kaiba, maybe?) and for them to drop a few of the really big names that haven't shown up yet, like Reborn, Gintama, or Jojo.

I think the issue with Luffy's eyes is that Oda's style doesn't quite mesh with the art style in this game.  One Piece guys aren't as typically "anime" as the other series, so he sticks out more because the 3D art is designed more around your Narutos and your Death Notes.
Title: Re: Jump Force (Naruto, DBZ, One Piece, Death Note)
Post by: Long John Killer on January 16, 2019, 04:47:23 am
That I certainly agree with, the game gels much better for character faces when they're more detailed and, well, human-esque.  Less cartoony.  From my time playing, though, they even made the weirdness of Sasuke's eye contact jutsu and Toriyama's very simple facial design look good.

Spoiler, click to toggle visibilty

But then Luffy comes along and looks like he wants to devour my damned eternal soul, and it doesn't do him any favors.

Spoiler, click to toggle visibilty

And it's odd, because Oda certainly was inspired by Toriyama's design esthetic, but for whatever reason one just translates a lot better than the other.  And Dragon Ball's should have been the more bizarre looking one with Goku having an obtuse triangle for a haircut and Vegeta's everything on his face.

I know I'm not all that knowledgeable on Naruto, never mind its follow-up with Shippuden, never mind on top of that this sequel, but man does Boruto look like the most feminine shonen protag I've seen in a long time.  He downright looks like that Taki replacement in Soul Calibur V in this game.

I'm curious what they intend for Garra, as I have not played any of the numerous Naruto arena fighters that are out as a basis for this game, and just knowing the character his style of combat is solely defensive and reactionary.  He even has the ninja default super speed and agility that comes built in with all Naruto characters and I don't recall him ever making use of it.  His whole schtick is to stand in one spot and let the sand do everything for him.  Speaking of which, that'll be something to see try to bog down the game on top of all the particle effects, having all that dynamic sand effects going on.

This Boruto does seem a bit weird compared to the manga, but, I mean, that SC girl was an obvious genderswapped ripoff of Naruto in the first place, so... And he's a little kid so that easily looks a bit more feminine. The Boruto manga artist has a really different art style, everyone looks like a girl.
I'm surprised Gaara stole Madara's spot. And having swarms of characters for one series just makes me think they'll straight up cut most of the other obscure series. Like, J-Stars was a celebration of the brand's history, this is trying to be the popular brawl that every manga games does. I think we'll be lucky to even get Gintama (but at the same time I feel it raises the odds to get a whole bunch of JoJo characters all at once rather than just a couple). Doesn't Naruto have more characters than the other big titles at this point ? Edit - no, they have 6 each. Huh.

On the other hand, this is technically a 50% increase in the total amount of female characters in the game, so there's that at the very least.  :mlol:

There's an open beta going on now for anyone who wants to try it out.

Kaguya is fine, I think it’s Boruto who is a hell of a lot more controversial. That’s a spot that could’ve gone to another Naruto character (Lee, Madara, Shikamaru, Itachi, B, Jiraiya, etc.),

Man, any of those I mentioned would be dope and most likely better than Boruto, even though he makes sense from marketing standpoint.

That being said I love Kakashi and Gaara as picks. Boruto is also a nice pick to represent modern Shonen Jump.

What's the deal with Bort, anyway?  I get that it's the sequel to Naruto which I would assume would be pretty popular, but I only ever hear about it from internet types who are super angry that it exists at all.  I haven't read any of it, is it really that bad?
Title: Re: Jump Force (Naruto, DBZ, One Piece, Death Note)
Post by: Byakko on January 19, 2019, 06:24:24 pm
It's a monthly manga that goes at the pace of a weekly manga. It's so slow it makes your brain melt. The art style is so weird compared to Naruto, and a lot of new dudes look like a bunch of pretty boys - except they're not, some of them are old men and fat guys, but the art style still makes them look like pretty boys because of how the artist draws eyes and hair. It's so weird. There are other random details that make the comparison to Naruto a bit difficult, it's too bad because it could have been its own thing and it would have been decent enough, just not anywhere close to Naruto popularity, and it does rely on you being familiar with the Naruto world and it's doing a decent job at that too, just not at all in the direction that Naruto was going. It's going all "new world tech" and dropping all the mystical stuff and mythology references that Naruto had.
(I'm saying all that from the manga, I have no idea what the anime does, since it's a weekly anime it probably does a fuckload more stuff than the manga).
Title: Re: Jump Force (Naruto, DBZ, One Piece, Death Note)
Post by: lui on January 19, 2019, 06:27:30 pm
The Anime and Manga are two distinct things because the anime takes place before the manga actually.

I think Boruto's pretty decent, i do like how they set up Boruto to be a bit more distinct from his father since he's learning under Sasuke instead of Naruto after all.

It's a good series and does delve back into the more personal stories, rather than raising the stakes high that it ends up being another one of those Shounen mangas that have end of the world stories but they end up being boring.

Toriyama making them royalties on this game.  All his DBZ guys, the new characters he designed for this game, and now Dragon Quest.  And if the rumors are true, Mami Koyama's personal website was recently updated saying she was voicing two characters in this game; Kaguya being one, and the other most prominent Jump character she voices is Arale.

And uggggggh worst Jojo.  Give me literally anybody else. Give me that fucking baby that Kakyoin fed its own shit before Jotaro. UGH.

I wonder if they'd go as far as having him literally kill off the entire cast?  And what their intentions are for those who it doesn't really mean squat to because they have a less than concrete sense of finality in the afterlife?  Ichigo's already dead, Yusuke it doesn't matter much to, I don't think it would work properly on Atem when he's controlling Yugi's body?  Goku can literally just IT out of heaven back to life if need be with good intent.

Heck, Ichigo IS what Ryuk is to Light as a Shinigami.  Actually, that would be awesome, have him writing down names and Ichigo just interferes with Ryuk doing his thing.

...I can only imagine what the console exclusive guest character could be if Jump Force is to ever get a Switch port.
Infact, I think I know exactly who could fit the bill.
Hint: he's from a game on the Game Boy Advance that got a manga adaptation by Shonen Jump (the only time Shonen Jump adapted a Nintendo game into a manga as far as I know), but he also is known for his appearances in a certain series of Nintendo crossover games starting with the second installment on Gamecube. :3

Sanji cannot attack or damage female characters.  Which is a nice bit of continuity with his character, but seems kind of disastrous for balance.



Also you can see both of Sanji’s eyes at once, 0/10 literally unplayable.

lol looks like his moves can still interrupt their attacks, which isn't all that bad, especially as a striker.

Actually I was thinking it looks like they left Naruto with the big explosive techniques while they gave Boruto the smaller projectiles and the clone shenanigans. Boruto has young Naruto's techniques while Naruto moved to the sage and Kyuubi techniques.

All told it's not that big of a deal.  All three characters on a team share a single health bar, so you're never going to run into a scenario where your only option is playing as Sanji vs a woman. At absolute worst, if someone deliberately counter-picks an all female team just to cripple Sanji you still have two characters to fight with and Sanji just becomes a dedicated assist.

So Bandai Namco US just announced, in the most unceremonious way possible, (https://twitter.com/bandainamcous/status/1092943026337411072?s=21) that the roster is complete and Jotaro and Dio were the last two characters to be revealed. 

On the one hand I get it, since the game comes out next week and there isn't really enough time for there to have been any more big reveals.  But on the other hand it is more than a little disappointing that so many series got completely shafted so that the 3 biggest ones could take up more than 25% of the roster.

At this point I'm fully expecting the DLC to just be more side characters from the series that are already in.

I also loathe how they tried to make this game serious and edgy by not putting any of the less serious and gag properties in. It's not a Jump crossover without characters like Gintoki, Arale and Ryotsu.

i can get the salt over gintoki or (kind of) arale, but iirc the reason why J-stars with its really wacky ass roster was delayed for the west in the first place was due to licensing nightmares from the more obscure franchises.

Jump Force seems to be trying to avoid that this time around for a simulrelease but atleast there's some neat picks like Ryo Saeba and Dai from the Dragon Quest manga.

Unfortunately, the only guys I know from that list are Kaiba, Buu, and the Law guy from One Piece (only because I played Burning Blood). Everyone else is an unknown to me. I've heard of Bleach, but never watched it. I've heard of My Hero Academia and I wouldn't mind watching it if only for the fact that the main hero's strongest move is a shout out to Delaware and Detroit... one's a state and the other is a garbage dump of a city.

It's cheap fun, sold as a AAA title.  If you're into any of the series presented, you'll have some fun, barring you're not going expecting Street Fighter polish or freaking out over power levels. (Yugi's better than all of them, anyways)  Still manage to get matches going online consistently on Xbox at this point, can't say for others what their player drop-off point is.

I've been real curious how they plan Kaiba to work.  His two signature monsters, Blue-Eyes and Obelisk, are considerably way too big to fill in as his own Dark Magician stand.  Yugi didn't make use of his lesser signatures or mainstays like Celtic Guardian, Winged Guardian of the Fortress, the Magnet Warriors or any of those, just Mahado, Mana, Slifer and a few magic cards.  So I'm presuming Kaiba also won't be throwing out Rude Kaiser, Battle Ox and the like, just some of the spells/traps like Crush Card or something.  But he's also not an up-close physical fighter, even less-so than Yugi because at least he had season 0 gang fighting.

Kaiba just lacks that signature humanoid figure to replicate what Dark Magician does in this game, at least one that stays with him throughout the series.

His moveset was partially datamined out like All Might's was.  People have modded it in using Yugi's model (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xEQNwmKB5aY), and based on how the animations look when draped over Dark Magician,  Blue Eyes White Dragon will probably be his main attacker.  He's got a Draw move like Yugi, possibly Blue Eyes Ultimate Dragon for one special, and Obelisk is his awakening move.

That's kind of a small Blue-Eyes, but eh, whatever, it works I guess.  The sizing would make more sense for Blue-Eyes Toon Dragon more than the regular, but he's not Pegasus so of course he wouldn't be using that.

I mean, they're just holographic projections of children's card games.  They can be whatever size they want.

I guess.  I'm just picturing the ones from ancient Egypt that are the size of temples though, the ones they considered to be actually real and stuff.

But then I suppose it's also happened in the manga that Yugi's summoned Slifer and shrunk him down in size to fit inside a hallway (Then shock a guy to death outside of their little Duel Monsters card game so I guess they just gave up on that whole "rules" thing) so it doesn't matter that much.  Just bugs me I suppose.

Originally, the holograms in the manga were barely bigger than the cards themselves, even when Yugi summoned them with magic:

The Kaiba fight and the Duelist Kingdom also feature relatively small holo-cages and regular size tables, instead of the giant fields of the anime. IIRC the holograms only got huge with the introduction of duel discs, and the anime ran with it from the beginning.

Obelisk is surprisingly based on his original design, and not his newer one.  I'm perfectly fine with that, this one always looked a lot better personally.

If anyone is still paying attention to this game, the buff loli is the gonna be the third character in the first character pack.

They really need to speed up their support of this game if they want anyone to still be playing by the time they finish all the planned content.  They're seriously dragging their feet.

the greatest jojo character ever..

we rarely see her fight though, and most of it was just her doing basic stuff. but i hope cookie would act like a stand.

i hate this game but i'll play it again if they have a fully voiced interactions of biscuit with jojo , dio and taguro.

DLC is out now.  I haven't grabbed it yet but I'll probably pick it up soon just for Kaiba.  Also because apparently Spike Chunshoft doesn't give half a shit about subtlety:

i kinda regret buying the dlc... they botched biscuit.

i know the game sucks but i expected a good few more hours of fun with the dlc characters and they feel so uninspired.
they could have done so many ways to give biscuit a good moveset. especially her counter move why not just add her iconic moves in the manga and tv series. they didn't even add her round house kick and it got featured in both 99 and 11's opening for greed island. or that flip throw and palm strike she did against the serial killer barber.
