Developed by Spike Chunsoft and published by Bandai Namco, Jump Force is a fighting game that combines different characters from popular manga and anime. Fighters include the likes of Naruto, Sasuke, Luffy, Zoro, Goky, Frieza, Vegeta, Gon, Kurapika and Killua, hailing of course from such franchises as Dragon Ball, Dragon Quest, Fist of the North Star, Yu-Gi-Oh and more. After browsing our Jump Force tier list, you should have a pretty good idea which characters to choose for the battles ahead. 

Jump Force was launched in February 2019 for Windows, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, with a Nintendo Switch port following in August 28 2020. In the game, you play as a new Hero that’s been introduced to a world where numerous anime and manga IPs collide. The story isn’t important. All you need to know about it is that the titular Jump Force has been assembled to defeat the Venoms, an army of automatons led by Kane and Galena. 

Gameplay in Jump Force takes the form of 1-v-1 battles, where players control a team of three characters, which can be switched between during each fight to provide support to the active character. Those that have played the likes of J-Stars Victory VS will know what to expect.

A Jump Force match is concluded when one team reduces the other’s health bar to zero. Characters also have an Awaken meter, which, when full, unleashes their Awakening ability. Often it is this Awakening ability that makes all the difference.
