JUMP FORCE Adds Characters from Hunter x Hunter, One Piece and Dragon Ball Z

Publisher Bandai Namco Entertainment continues to ‘drip-feed’ us information about the 3D based arena fighter JUMP FORCE as the publisher have revealed that Gon and Hisoka from Hunter X Hunter, Sanji, Sabo and Blackbeard from One Piece, and everyone’s favourite Vegeta from Dragon Ball Z will be playable in the game.

Hunter X Hunter:

  • Gon is a young boy with a pure heart. He’ll put his friends above all else and will face up to any opponent, if it’s for the greater good.
  • Hisoka is his opposite. Underneath his jovial exterior lies a sociopathic fighter that finds pleasure only in killing.

One Piece:

  • Sanji is the talented cook on the Straw Hat Crew, but don’t let this deceive you, because Sanji is one of the strongest fighters in the One Piece world, willing to face anyone to protect his comrades.
  • Sabo a childhood friend and brother to Luffy. He possesses total control over fire and can use this immense skill in creative and dangerous ways in battle.
  • Blackbeard is one of the fiercest and most despicable characters of One Piece. He is the only known character to have two different Devil Fruit powers, one allowing him to create earthquakes and the other to manipulate the darkness itself.

Dragon Ball Z:

  • Vegeta was once a mortal enemy of Goku and hell bent on destroying the earth, he now fights alongside him to protect earth and its residents.

These characters join the already confirmed list of characters which include Goku and Frieza and Dragon Ball Z, Luffy and Sanji from One Piece, as well as Ichigo and Ain from Bleach.

In addition to these new characters Bandai Namco Entertainment went on to reveal more gameplay details such as the online experience one might expect from this game as well as a brand new stage.


In JUMP FORCE’s online modes, players will be able to create their own customised avatars and interact with players from around the world.

Based in a huge lobby composed of four distinct settings, from the worlds of One Piece, Naruto, Dragon Ball Z, and the real world. Players will be able to tailor their own avatar to create an ultimate fighter, before fighting against others online.

New Stage: Planet Namek:

From the Dragon Ball Z universe, Namek is the planet where the infamous battle between Goku and Frieza took place. Namek has three suns, so is in a state of perpetual daylight. In JUMP FORCE, the planet Namek also features the mysterious appearance of a certain green statue, which fans are sure to recognise.

JUMP FORCE is currently in development for the Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and Windows PC for release at some point next year.
