  • Detrimont

    The characters from the Hiatus King were finally announced, you could say, their announcement was under hiatus

    • 無尽合体ブランタコブスキ

      oh u

    • Alex Sargeant

      I laughed hard enough that my stomach hurts.

      I guess it could be a hiatus hernia.

    • Anime10121

      rofl!

      Perfect

  • Dede Ogbe

    Yes! Ok if Yusuke is in it, Jojo definitely has a chance. The question is which Jojo? Personally i would rather have Joseph but it’s probably going to be Jotaro. So glad the game is on Vita though! Import!

    • AkuLord3

      I’m not sure why just because Yusuke being in it means that a Jojo character would have to be in it for you. Of course they’re going put in the most popular series (then there be less people buying) : p. But yeah which Jojo, it probably be Joesph (since with the anime) or Jotaro (since Part 3 is pretty popular).

      • Dede Ogbe

        i made that point as Yusuke is from an old shounen jump manga like Jojo. There was the fear that they would only focus on fairly recent jump stars. Seems it’s not the case

        • Anime10121

          Dragon Ball Z is older than Yu Yu hakusho…

        • Anime10121

          Dragon Ball Z is older than Yu Yu hakusho…

  • Carlos Luis Ayala

    Finally can’t wait for Yoh and Yugi next

    • Dede Ogbe

      Yes. Yoh is awesome! Though am not sure how they would do it with Yugi.

      • Carlos Luis Ayala

        He could fuse with Dark Magician as a transfermation if capsole monsters happened in the manga :-P

      • http://www.destructoid.com/blogs/mgbenz mgbenz

        He would mainly be a range character like in JUS.

  • Z3

    Its about time

  • Carlos Luis Ayala

    Can’t wait for Yugi Yoh next XD

  • WhyWai

    Expected. They are mad if they miss out these 2 classic characters. Now, hope that Shaman King will be in the list too!

  • Lexaus_the_Alchemist

    Urameshi!!! Hells yeah! Game just got x1000 times better!

  • SuBw00FeR

    Yusuke woo! Now we just need Hiei Kurama and Kuwabara :D

    • Eder García

      the world is not prepared for Kuwabara

      • Pinwheel

        I swear, if this game doesn’t get some Kuwabara love..

    • http://s1.zetaboards.com/Espada_of_Alexandria/index/ konpon568

      What about Kurama?

  • nejihiashi88

    we want their rivals too hiei and kilua and we want all thier power including thier transformation that would be awsome

  • Will John

    Still waiting on Tsuna and Oga, or are they too unpopular for this?

  • Spirit Macardi

    Oh god, this brings back such wonderful memories!

    YuYu Hakusho was such a great series. The characters, the action… Plus the dub was the point where Funimation REALLY stepped up their game and started to come into their own.

  • Umar

    Started Hunter X Hunter Remake a while back, finally reached the arc after Greed Island….My heart was not prepared for everything that has transpired

    • http://blackstar2661.deviantart.com/ SilverSpades

      I know right?

      • Umar

        Indeed, Was watching it in the bus yesterday and almost missed my stop … it’s just too good, and surprisingly grim!

        • http://blackstar2661.deviantart.com/ SilverSpades

          It’s like “Hey, you might like this character. Now we’re going to kill him/her.”

  • Göran Isacson

    Aaawww yiss, Yusuke is in! Now I just need third Jojo and the battle between the school punks can begin in earnest!

  • Herok♞

    Now give me Tsuna and Korosensai and you have my import.

    • Internet is Crash

      Tsuna, Medaka, and any JoJo represent for me :V

      • TheMightyKamina

        I need Oga,Jotaro,Yugi,Seiya,not that i’m not going to import it just that i would like they in

  • notforsale

    I hope they include Train Heartnet and Rikuo Nura :/

  • http://youtube.com/user/Chubunater Chubunato

    I knew they was coming and i’m loving it. I wonder whose next.. C’mon on, SEIYA!!

  • Dario Portillo

    needs more Saint Seiya !

  • Ronldbx6

    That show was apart of my childhood, epic times!

  • Espoir

    Cardcaptor Sakura?

  • Bobby Jennings

    YES

  • Shadowman

    Might as well add Natsu to game you know he love’s to fight

    • https://www.facebook.com/OperationHotblood?ref=hl HeroOfGames16

      He’s not a Shonen Jump character.

      • Shadowman

        Serious! Aw man and I thought he would make a great addition.

        • https://www.facebook.com/OperationHotblood?ref=hl HeroOfGames16

          He would make a great addition, but he’s just not a Shonen Jump character sadly enough.

        • ZekeFreek

          Shadowman? What are you doing here?

  • Judgephoenix

    First comes….Rock!!!. I hope they add extras I want Hisoka now badly lol.

  • Renaldi Saputra

    umm, how about adding… Daimon Masaru??
    oh well, seems impossible, lol

  • fairysun

    I am not sure if today gamers know who Yusuke Urameshi is.
    I mean, that series has been long gone, unlike Hunter X Hunter who gets reboot back in 2011.

    • Rohan Kishibe

      I feel like a lot of american gamers anyone between (15 and 30) today still remember Yu Yu hakusho on toonami. they practically grew up with it. I know I did and I’m only 19.

    • Shadowman

      He was the high school kid who jump in front of a car to save kid, and he return to his body fighting demons in both human and demon world I remember that anime as clear as day.

  • Kalis Konig

    now give me yugi, yoh, kid muscle, jojo, and seiya!

  • MrRobbyM

    Yuske?! LOCALIZE THIS NOW. I NEED YUSKE.

  • Firekitty

    my interest in this game suddenly doubled.

    Though, I’d really love to see something like this, but with Zero Sum characters…

  • Raltrios

    Yoh, Medaka, Yugi, Train, possibly Beelzebub…

    plox

  • abcdeee

    Allen walker next please

  • Eder García

    whens jojo characters?

  • Cloud_ST

    Poor Gon will confuse Yuske with his dad D:

  • MagisterXII

    YES! This is what I’ve been waiting for! I must have this game no matter what!

  • Guest

    I hope they Kurapika joins as well. And yeah Yoh and Yugi hopefully.

  • Asuna Ilano

    I hope kurapika is next. And yeah, Yoh and Yugi as well.

    • Renaldi Saputra

      Yugi? are u sure?

      • Ferrick

        he was playable in other jump games

        • SunOatBoatMatadorQuattro

          Pharaoh Yugi would fit more than Leather Pants Yugi, wouldn’t he?

          • Ferrick

            why not pharaoh leather pants yugi

        • Renaldi Saputra

          oh

      • http://s1.zetaboards.com/Espada_of_Alexandria/index/ konpon568

        Yugi is great in Jump Ultimate Stars!

  • Jude

    KOSUKE UEKI PLEASE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    • Rebellion14

      Law of Ueki was published in Shonen Sunday not in Shonen Jump. He won’t be in this game sadly….

      • Jude

        sigh.. A Guy Can Dream T.T

  • Guest

    KOSUKE UEKI PLEASE!!!!! :D

  • anthony apduhan

    HIRUMA YOUICHI NEXT! YA-HA!

  • Ni ~UNREAL BLACK THINGS~

    kenshin and urameshi is in this…now i just need medaka and I’ll be set

  • Shane Guidaboni

    Oga from Beelzebub needs to be in this game!

  • ShawnOtakuSomething

    add Yugi lol how would he fight in 3D? and Kazuki Muto from
    Buso Renkin

    • British_Otaku

      What makes 3D so special? Yugi will fight with the Heart of the Cards or literally summon monsters like in Jump Superstars. Exodia for an ultimate?

      • TheMightyKamina

        I prefer the later ,i think that in JUS,it was really good the way they use of summoning the monsters

      • ShawnOtakuSomething

        Hmmm but he could hardly fight XD

      • Koibito888

        He’d probably use Slifer and or other Gods as ultimates like he did in the DS games.

    • deadMastershiro

      Thanks for Kazuki. I know it won’t but i’m still hoping for Ageha Yoshina from psyren.

    • Koibito888

      With Yugi I imagine it like Pain from the Naruto Storm games where combos are consistent of summoning different monsters who attack and using aesthetic effects from spell or trap cards, pretty much like he did in the DS games lol.

  • Rayshawn Davis

    How ironic is it that I was watching my Season 1 Box Set of Yu Yu Hakusho today before finding out that hours later that Yusuke was confirmed playable. None the less, happy to see my childhood back!

  • Jesse Torres

    GON FREECCSS, YES!!!! HUNTER X HUNTER IS AWESOME

  • Klaus00

    Tsuna / Oga next? ;D

    • TheMightyKamina

      Yeah,both badass leaders,that people usually underestimate

      • British_Otaku

        I really didn’t “like” Tsuna as I went through it.
        Perhaps I didn’t hate him either, but I do want long recent series focused on fighting to be represented as well as old series and upcoming ones.

  • Highasthesky

    These two characters had to be announced together, it just couldn’t have been any other way =/

  • katzedan

    Since this series is originated from Jump, I will do like everyone and ask it here even if everybody dislike this.

    Jump. Give me Lala or Yami from To Love-ru! :3

    • TheMightyKamina

      Well,Lala i’m not sure how they would implement her,but yami,eve(Black Cat) was in Jus and they being extremelly similar characters i think it would be easy to put her in

      • katzedan

        Lala is a genius and have her inventions… a lot of them xD
        And the Devilukeans are one of the most, if not the most powerful alien race in the To Love-ru series, so she have a super power that easily surpass the power of any human. And we can’t forget the Laser beam she can shoot from her tail and that she can fly.

        I know that if they wish, they can fit her well in this game.

        • TheMightyKamina

          That’s true well it could be interesting to see what techniques they would put

    • Highasthesky

      I feel they’ll put Rito in and the other characters will be part of his move-set.

      • Slayven19

        Since Lala is more popular I’d think they would put her in the game and have the other characters as support. Lala is strong and can actually fight a little bit and her gimmick machines and such will give her an edge.

        • Highasthesky

          I can see it that way too, in the end i just hope some representation of the series makes it in.

    • Renaldi Saputra

      huh? To Love Ru doesn’t count it seems

      • Slayven19

        Based on what?

        • SunOatBoatMatadorQuattro

          I think he meant they would not fit into a fighting game.

        • Renaldi Saputra

          is To Love Ru a Jump related thing?
          I thought all Jump related things are all shounen-ish

          • katzedan

            To Love-ru was published in Weekly Shounen Jump from April 2006 to August 2009. Since it’s a Jump related game, I think it can have at least one place.

            And like I said, Lala and Yami are both powerful… a lot more than Kenshin for example, who is just a samurai and don’t have any special abilities like ability to fly, laser beams or body manipulation.

          • Renaldi Saputra

            hmm, even so, I think it’s still not possible to add them..
            but, well, let’s just see

    • HerosLight

      I really want Yami/Eve ;-;

  • Kaihedgie

    Should this ever get localized

    I need to see Justin Cook and Johnny Yong Bosch bounce off of each other

  • http://s1.zetaboards.com/Espada_of_Alexandria/index/ konpon568

    We need more MANLYNESS in this game! Kenshiro and JoJo (any version is alright) as the next reveals!

    • Craig Mikucki

      Woah. That just might be TOO much manliness.

  • RichyGaming

    User 1: Now, I’d like to order some Tsuna(Katekyo Hitman Reborn), Bobobobobobobobobox20, Train (Black cat), Allen (D-Grayman), Yoh (Shaman King), and hmmm how about some Blue Exorcist, Nura, Jojo and then maybe i’ll CONSIDER checking this game out in youtube.

    Developer: You drive a hard bargain…

    • Pinwheel

      For some of us, JoJo is all you need ;~;

    • ZekeFreek

      Some of those aren’t from SJ. Though if I was allowed to pick from outside that range, I’d go with probably Ginta Toramizu and Zatch Bell.

      • RichyGaming

        HAH! Zatch Bell! Haven’t heard from that for a long time now. Good show.

        • ZekeFreek

          Well, that’s a Shonen Sunday thing.

          • Guest

            I see. I’ll keep that in mind.

          • RichyGaming

            If we’re talking outside SJ I’d love to see Fairy Tail, Kenichi The Mightiest Disciple, and Inuyasha, dood. I have never heard of Ginta Toramizu but something can can be done about that.

          • ZekeFreek

            Ginta was the main character of MÄR.

          • RichyGaming

            Oh yeah Ginta would make an awesome character. He’s got all kinds of weapons at disposal including that weapon that talks, I forgot his name.

          • ZekeFreek

            Babbo. And technically Babbo is his only weapon, he just has a lot of forms.

          • RichyGaming

            Yes but I guess that could count as several weapons though. It’s like being in an original transformation while there are several other forms. (Super Saiyan forms and Erza Scarlet herself are both good examples).

  • RichyGaming

    Hopefully they will add more than just one character from each series.

    • leingod

      I’d rather have a single character from more series, than more characters from less series. But that’s just me.

      • RichyGaming

        No, I agree with you. I’m actually perfectly fine with who we have already, even without Gon and Yusuke. However I’d like to see more familiar faces for the series because these character models are sick. Especially for those who barely make appearances in high quality games unlike with DBZ, Naruto, One Piece, Bleach and stuff like that.

    • Draparde

      Yeah , I’d like at least 2.

  • Blesmi

    They had better put Kenshiro in this.

  • Solomon_Kano

    Fucking YESSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS!

    Now I just need Tsuna and/or Oga and it’s a wrap. Oh, oh! And Bossun!

  • KyoyaHibari

    Read about this earlier today, super pumped.

  • KyoyaHibari

    Kenshiro, Josuke or Giorno, Kurapika, Rikuo, Taikobo, Seiya, Kazuki, Yoh, Jaguar, Train, Bobobo, maybe Fuusuke and if Jump Square counts, Shinkuro Kurenai and I’m set. (lol copypasta)

  • KnifeAndFork

    Can’t believe only one other person here’s asked for the obvious:

    Kenshiro from Hokuto no Ken please

  • KnifeAndFork

    Can’t believe only one other person here’s asked for the obvious:

    Kenshiro from Hokuto no Ken please

  • hazelnut1112

    All I need in this game are Bobobo and Kinnikuman.

    • https://twitter.com/A_Beast_of_Prey Equinox K

      If they put Bobobo in this game I think this will warrant having to try and import it.

  • Learii

    keep it coming Namco I want more more much more

  • Cheesy04

    Sad no Sket Dance character :(

    • HerosLight

      Agreed. All We’ve seen so far are Veterans, not that I’m complaining about that but I want to see Bossun or Himeko in this.

  • ivanchu77

    We need Seiya! , Ikki would also be a good choice

    • leingod

      The game definetely could use some Saints!

  • Anime10121

    Went from a maybe import to Playasia preorder in the blink of an eye! Yusuke and Gon, the two I said I needed for me to get this game, YOU WIN Namco Bandai, take my monies!

    If you guys don’t mind, I’m going to leave this right here, in case anyone is interested:

    http://www.change.org/petitions/capcom-and-shueisha-make-a-shonen-jump-vs-capcom-game-2

    I don’t mean to take away any excitement for J-Stars Victory VS though. I just thought it would be a good opportunity to promote this idea among Jump fans. And yes, I know, petitions don’t work, Capcom doesn’t care, yadda yadda… Still, it doesn’t cost anything to show support for the idea, in case there’s a small chance of it happening…

  • yomachaser

    RRRAYY GUNNN!!!!!

  • Anime10121

    Checks Play Asia, ” WHY THE FLIPPING HELL CANT I PREORDER YET”!?

  • SunOatBoatMatadorQuattro

    You think Light Yagami from Death Note will have a cameo or something since he is from Jump?

    • LightGenx

      God I hope so.

  • leingod

    Never watched Hunter X Hunter, but great that Yosuke is in!

  • leingod

    Never watched Hunter X Hunter, but great that Yosuke is in!

  • LightGenx

    Great news. Still waiting on Yugi.

  • HerosLight

    Time for some Spirit Gun and Shotguns!

  • Gyro Zeppeli

    If they decide to add any side characters, I’d love to see Kuwabara playable for once.

  • Vorsun

    I actually hope they announce some villains soon-ish. DIO and Makoto Shishio are at the top of my list. Especially with how huge the stages seem to be.

  • ZekeFreek

    So sad these things never come over. I might import this one though now that it’s on Vita. Also, Hunter X Hunter is the greatest series ever made.

  • ZekeFreek

    Bet they had to dump a bucket of water on Togashi’s head while he was napping off just to get him to sign a form or some shit.

  • miyamoto

    PS3 is the best console in the world today!!!!!!

    It has the best games from Japan!

    And this is that Game!

    PS Vita is the best handheld today because of this game!

    My dreams will come true!

  • John Ross

    Hey you know, Kenshiro and Jotaro Kujo will make a great tag team. They both got fast fist. :)

  • Zeno Kuroichi

    Ikki,Medaka,Oga,Tsuna,Allen, Natsu, Light(or Ryuk), Seiya, Sebastian Michaels, Inuyasha, Zatch, Edward Elric, Yami Yugi, and Maka with Soul. Then I’ll be complete! Anyways, happy to have Yusuke join Yu Yu Hakusho was the first anime I ever saw and haven’t regretted since!

    • katzedan

      Natsu, Sebastian, Inuyasha, Edward and others you mentioned aren’t from Shueisha/Jump… so if they don’t change this game to a game like “Shueisha x Kodansha x Square Enix x Shogakukan” for example, they’ll never show in this game!

      I think they could at least put characters from other magazine they own like Jump Square.

      At least with this we could have characters like Claire (Claymore) Rin/Yukio/Mephisto (Blue Exorcist) Ichiko/Momiji/Ranmaru (Binbougami Ga), Allen (D.Grayman), Moka (Rosario + Vampire) and a lot more! :D

      • Koibito888

        At the very least I’d like characters from series’ that WERE weekly jump series like Allen from DGM.

  • Farid Belkacemi

    Hunter X Hunter… The anime is so awesome I can’t stop watching it ! :D

  • Koibito888

    Characters I’m hoping for are:

    Yoh Asakura – amazingness unparalleled.

    Yugi – To see Yugi in a fighting game with these graphics would be just maddeningly awesome. Imagine that big ulti of throwing out Slifer in all the high res glory~

    Allen Walker – D.Gray-Man is like one of my favorites and it never gets enough love (especially since cancelation -_-) and I would love to see him represented epically not only in a game but in a high quality epic like this.

    Tsuna – As awfully as the series ended, Tsuna and the rest of the cast were awesome and the fighting and powers of the series rocked so I would like an epic Hitman Reborn rep for this game.

    Seiya – Saint Seiya IS my favorite series and Seiya just needs to be a part of this, especially since Saint Seiya is getting alot of love right now.

    Light – Less so wanting him indefinitely but more so curious and intrigued on how they could play him off. He could be paired with Yugi as the unorthodox ‘what the crap’ fighters. Like… Imagine if Light used moves of different ways to die but since they’re epic shounen characters they could tank stuff. Like all his moves have epic lines and he’s writing but the attacks manifest as a bus or train hitting them, accidents happening, and for his final attack he just goes ham with it and his eyes glow red and he gets the shinigami eyes and just gives the targeted opponent a heart attack. Lol most likely not but it’s still a funny thought.

    Then there are some that I’m not so much anticipating but think would be cool:

    Main character from Buso Renkin

    Jotaro or anyone from Jojo’s bizarre adventure

    Dark Schneider from Bastard!!

    Arale – Dr. Slump

    And thats all I can really think of haha.

    • Koibito888

      And Kenshiro!

  • Rizky Ichigo-kun JpAni-prince

    I Want DLC Characters Like Natsu,Kirito,Kamijo touma and Silver crow :)
