Bandai Namco’s epic anime brawl for the ages is about to return when it arrives on Nintendo Switch
Jump Force, the anime brawler featuring some of anime’s most popular warriors has just been announced for Nintendo Switch. The up-tempo crossover initially launched on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC during late 2018 and somehow Bandai is bringing it to Nintendo’s handheld. As well as squeezing Jump Force onto this diminutive platform, the game will also land as a Deluxe Edition. Players late to the battle will get to experience all of the action as characters from Dragonball Z, One Piece, Naruto, and many other franchises wield their over the top powers in a fight for the ages.
All Of The Anime
Jump Force Deluxe Edition comes to the Nintendo Switch with over 50 playable characters hailing from 16 different Weekly Shonen Jump franchises including all previously released DLC characters from the Season 1 Character Pass. Players will enter our world as it falls under a nefarious gaze and only the heroes of the Jump Force can stop it. Players joining Jump Force and construct their own bespoke character while building a three hero team to enter a range of PvE stories and PvP battles. Each of the game’s famous characters reflects their Shonen heritage with the powers and skill set anime fans will appreciate. Whether it is wielding a Kamehameha or unsheathing your Zanpakuto fans of manga will get a kick out of Jump Force.
The Nintendo Switch also brings its very own exclusive extras. A new offline 3 vs. 3 mode is exclusive to the Nintendo Switch version of Jump Force Deluxe Edition, allowing for six friends to each control a character and battle it out together. In this mode, each player controls a character on their team of three and will enter the fight when their character is tagged into the battle. Strategic thinking and knowing when to tag players in and out of the battle will be key to success. I don’t think you could really expect local co-op on PS4 anyway.
Jump Force Deluxe Edition will be available for Nintendo Switch with an MSRP of $49.99, while the Season 2 character pass should arrive on Switch at $17.99. When we find out a full release date we will let you know. For now, you can check out our review of the original release. Me, I’m back off to practice my Kamehameha in Kakarot.
