Check out the hands on with the anime crossover to learn about what awaits you in the game:
What we can say from out time with Naruto and friends is that Jump Force could be the ultimate anime brawler. On the surface, it is a fast flashy, and faithful adaptation of the characters that anime fans adore. From a more technical stance, it takes concepts established in games like Dragon Ball FighterZ and blows them out into a wide world. It creates fights that are a flurry of fists and close quarters takedowns, where choosing when to close, engage, and switch out your team is critical.
