    Will this is a start. Definitely gonna main Gintoki to troll everyone online, assuming the game has an online mode.

  • Nitraion

    Lol gintoki….
    this will be interesting…

  • refrain

    B-But Gintoki doesn’t have any special attack…

  • Jontaku

    Definately pleased with this.

  • GHAmer

    Maybe Gintoki will be using his exploding scooter just like in Jump Ultimate star LOL

    • refrain

      What if he uses the neo armstrong cyclone jet armstrong cannon?

      • epy

        Hey, it’s really perfect!

    • How about Shogun Ka Yo?

  • Tonton Ramos

    Now we need Youichi Hiruma and I’ll be happy YA-HA!

  • Jogn

    I want to see the scan :D

  • samsneeze

    Kenshiro or get the fuck out.

  • I’d love to see Jonathan Joestar, Joseph Joestar and Bobobo joining the fray! Also some female fighters such as Rukia, Kaguya, Medaka, … how many female fighters does Shonen Jump have? They’re pretty much in small numbers when you think about it.

    • British_Otaku

      Small numbers? Depends on how you classify it.

      They could pick from Claymore (mostly female cast of warriors if I understand right), Medaka Box (the lead and the initial God character are female) and many of the fighting shonen have a girl who fights as well or as a parallel of sorts along with a rival (perhaps both at once) like Nami, Robin, Kaguya, Rukia, Chitose Toriiooji, Saku-, Hinata, Tokiko (Buso Renkin) and so on.

      I suppose few of them are lead characters in their respective works, so for a crossover which only picks one character, they’ll pick the most important character. Even if it was a harem type where there were a dozen girls doing all of the combat and the male lead is wimpy and directs their power.

      • Seems legit. Hopefully, they won’t keep it to just one per franchise, but if so, at least they pick the main character. Then again, JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure would be a hard case then since each part has its own main character. Then again, the best well known of them are the first three.

        • British_Otaku

          I can’t claim to be very informed about JoJo (watched no episodes, OVAs, read no chapters, seen a few clips and fighting games), but I’m fairly sure it’s Jotaro Kujo. >_> If only because the likes of “ORA ORA ORA” and “WRYYYYYYYYYY” seem to be inspired by that, shame that he isn’t the first or most recent main character as it will definitely make some people bitter.


          If they do pick multiple characters from a single franchise, it’ll be a shame when they offer a lot more characters to say Dragon Ball when Gintama and JoJo stick to a single person or if they make odd picks.

          I would rather more franchises get represented here than many in one field but we’ll see.

      • SerendipityX

        LOL Why is Saku-*shot* c-cut off?

  • Renaldi Saputra

    lol.. Kochikame..
    good old times..
    the series made me laugh

  • Airiaen

    Aw I hope Zura gets in the game <3

  • LightGenx

    Yes! This is shaping up quite nicely.

  • Raze

    Someone remind me…

    Shaman King is from Shonen Jump too right?
    And Yu Yu Hakusho?

    If so then i definetely hope for Yoh and Yusuke then…
    Along with Oga…

    • SunOatBoatMatadorQuattro

      Yes the two are from Jump. It’s strange, but I would take anybody from Hunter x Hunter over Gon

    • iota-09

      if you played jump ultimate star than you know which characters from which manga MUST be in this one too.

  • noname

    The next announcement should be:

  • Now all we need is the scans.

    • refrain

      And the gameplay vids

  • abcdeee

    Add Allan walker maybe? Just a thought.

    • He was pretty big in JUS, so it would be a shame if he wasn’t inthis.

  • FitzpatrickPhillips

    Gin made it – Yep. Day one buy.

  • Renaldi Saputra

    okay, now where’s Katsura?

  • Internet is Crash

    < mfw gintoki confirmed

  • SpectralRaiden

    Hmmm, it’s distinctively lacking some Yoh Asakura and Yusuke Yurameshi…add those 2 and I’m golden:-) I would say also add Heidi from Hungry Joker, but sadly that is unlikely since Hungry Joker was cancelled:-(

  • refrain
    • Raze

      lol that bike…

    • Z3

      Plowing through a bunch of clones with a bike, classy Gintoki

  • AkuLord3

    WELP i’m more hyped than ever. Freakin Gintoki and Ryotsu…now i just want to see Kumagawa (or anymore in Medaka Box but he’s a big favorite to alot so i see him pop in) and i’m pretty all good

  • RichyGaming

    Hunter x Hunter, Bobobobobo x20, Yu yu hakasho, Buso Renkin, Katekyo Hitman Reborn, Kinnikuman, Shaman King, D Grayman, Black Cat, Yugioh, and Gurren lagann

    • Koji Kabuto

      Gurren Lagann is not published in Shonen Jump, that manga is from Dengeki Daioh magazine.

      • RichyGaming

        :( Then how about Kamina/Simon third party guests?

        • milo

          no the game is called Jump, just from Shonen Jump

        • Norman Fong Ochoa

          That would be giving screen to a competitor magazine series, and we know this game is to conmemorate the 45th anniversary of JUMP.

    • deadMastershiro

      Thank you for saying everything i was thinking and more.

      • RichyGaming

        Yu welcahlm, dood

  • Guest

    The scan is out but i can’t post link

    • SunOatBoatMatadorQuattro

      It’s below in the comments

  • Lifestreamer

    Gintoki!? I mean, I’m really glad that Gintoki made it in, but wow that was fast, Ryotsu is a must, more than 30 years in Jump and not appearing in this game is blasfemy.

  • Jesse Torres

    YES! Gintoki is awesome.

  • ahah Ryotsu Awsome

  • Kevi Johnson-el

    I would love to see Yoh in this game

    • TheExile285

      If this happened, I’d be tempted to import day one

    • deadMastershiro

      Don’t forget Anna and Hana.

  • pantsonadog

    Whelp, I’m pre-ordering this. w-we can still hope for a English release right?..

  • haha I just knew these guys was gonna be in and i have no complaints. It’s kind of funny that they announced these 2 together cuz i remember in JUS Gintoki got a health buff from Ryotsu when teamed up. :D

  • HerosLight

    Its about time they announced Gintoki!!

    The next character I would like is Medaka or someone from Sket Dance!

  • Kaihedgie

    Ichigo Vs Gintoki; the dream match finally made real

    • British_Otaku

      You could have played Jump Superstars or Jump Ultimate Stars to get your answer (all of these guys are veterans in both), but I suppose it’s cool.

  • Anime10121


    —-> Spirit Gun!!!

  • deadMastershiro

    Show me more NOW!!!

  • The characters from Pyou Fukku to Jaguar and BoBoBo-Bo Bo-BoBo should be the next reveal!

  • Vash bane

    some happy fan here prayers were answered

  • iota-09

    only? JUS had A LOT more charcters… really,they were even too much.

  • NimbusStev

    Yes! Very happy to see Kochikame appear in this! Not because I like the series, but because if a character like him can make it in there that means we will probably have quite a large character roster.

  • katamari damacy

    As long as the roster equals to the same amount as Jump Ultimate Stars i’ll be happy
