LOS ANGELES–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Leading developer and publisher of anime videogames, BANDAI NAMCO Entertainment America Inc., has announced JUMP FORCE for the Xbox One® video game system, PlayStation®4 computer entertainment system, and PC via STEAM®. The greatest heroes and villains from the 50-year history of Shueisha’s influential Japanese Weekly Shonen Jump® manga will battle against each other across iconic locations on Earth in this anime fighting game fan’s dream come true!
Featuring the world’s most popular and classic manga/anime franchises including DRAGON BALL Z®, ONE PIECE®, NARUTO®, and many others, players will be able to create their three-character manga/anime dream tag team and take them into battle in hyper-stylish arena brawls set against backdrops of famous landmarks around the world including New York City’s Times Square and the Matterhorn in the Alps.

The greatest heroes known to manga/anime including Goku, Luffy, Naruto, as well as many others to be announced, must join together to triumph over the forces of evil seeping in from the JUMP world.
