Who Will Win A J-Stars Victory Vs. Fight? Naruto, Goku, Luffy Or Toriko?

By Spencer . August 16, 2013 . 2:13am


Kamehameha! Rasenshuriken! Flying Fork! I imagine J-Stars Victory Vs. will sound like that when Namco Bandai releases the crossover fighting game. J-Stars Victory Vs. brings together Shonen Jump characters like Goku from Dragon Ball and Yusuke Urameshi from Yu Yu Hakusho. This batch of screenshots shows Toriko, Luffy, Naruto, and a glimpse of Ichigo Kurosaki from Bleach.




J-Stars Victory Vs. is in development for PlayStation 3 and PlayStation Vita.

  • konsama

    This game looks so awesome. I can’t wait to use toriko and gintoki.

    It sad how bleach fell so bad from grace ichigo isn’t even mentioned as a big name anymore. :/

    • Asura

      Sad? If only it happened to bad series more often. It was honestly a miracle Bleach was ever considered good.

      • hey, the soul society arc was pretty interesting.

        now if only Bleach ended back then…

        • Koibito888

          Hell I even think the Espada stuff was good. It’s when Aizen became a condom that stuff started to crap out lol.

          • Freud_Hater

            Nah, to me, it only got unreadably bad when the Fullbringer shit started. Coincidentally, it seems Japanese TV viewers agree with me since the ratings plummeted so bad that they cancelled the anime… :/

          • Koibito888

            Yeah, I just personally think when Aizen started doing stupid things like that is when it started to go down hill, not that it was awful just yet. Fullbring arc was utter crap though.

          • Shady Shariest

            Am i the only one who enjoyed Fullbring arc for having… Interesting and different designs?
            (Not meaning to badmouth, but uniforms everywhere gets dull…Wery fast…)

          • TheExile285

            I liked it up until the ending. The ending for that arc was awful IMO.

            I think its funny that people are trying to make it seem like Bleach is the worst manga ever now.

          • Shady Shariest

            Yeah, the ending was…Horrid… I really liked the characters!

          • TheExile285

            Riruka and that kid with the PSP were my favorites. I’m disappointed Riruka didn’t become a regular though.

          • Shady Shariest

            I really liked the PSP kid too…For the first time there was a character that didn’t try to stand up and push everyone down in Bleach…

          • Koibito888

            That’s because at this point it almost IS the worst shounen manga ever. Most manga do not get this low in quality of writing.

          • Norman Fong Ochoa

            Hold on, there’s a lot of manga in Shonen Jump as well as other magazines that are even more lackluster from the very beginning. Examples: Sengoku Armors, Lock-On (which were axed in less than 20 chapters).
            Note that I know other series than Bleach like Toriko, Reborn, Gintama, Sket Dance that are truly interesting and enjoyable, but I figured the ones who a) had a lot of hype but soon it vanished (ex, Hungry Joker), or b) were destined to sink from the very beginning (ex. Takamagahara, Koisuru Edison).
            In conclussion, if Bleach is this low at the moment, better not get started on those series who were EVEN lower and never rose to the spotlight. And this is worrying because Jump needs new blood and at the described situation, there’s no light at the end of the tunnel…

          • s07195

            Perhaps they just need to hit the… brain bleach. >.>

          • It was aight. To be honest though, the Thousand Year Blood War is good, imo.

          • Koibito888

            Yes, because Ginjo was totally unique with how his face looked like Aizen lol. Really though, Ginjo and Tsukishima were the only good characters in it. The rest of them were unique, but all far too uninteresting.

            Also alcohol has a soul guys.

          • Shady Shariest

            Ah, i totally forgot about that! :D
            Recycling at its best :P (Or worst which you wan’t to use)

          • Miss_Madness

            Your right it should have ended when with final battle with Aizen. It had a setup for an ending but no it gets dragged out and horrible to boot.

          • fairysun

            Yes, I like the Espada arc too.
            It should end when Aizen is captured because all the time we’re led that Aizen is the final antagonists.


            But then again, it is all within Aizen’s plan.

          • Norman Fong Ochoa

            You know… for one who paid close attention to everything that happened since the start of the Arrancar Arc, loose ties like who exactly is the Soul King or the Zero Division, as well of the real reason behind Masaki’s death.
            I’m not saying that as a fan of Bleach (I admit I’m still one as well as some slipping), but finishing without answering that would be suicide.

          • Samuel

            Bleach was great up to the moment Aizen was sealed, the series was still popular up till then and that’s where the show should have ended.

      • raymk

        It was an ok series, it was popular for a reason at one time.

      • Sango

        Hold on now, the thousand year blood arc is amazing.


      if kubo didn’t fucked up the hype because of how bad he wrote the whole Aizen saga. Bleach was my favourite jump comic until mid of aizen saga where the’re alot of chapters that had ZERO story progress. I still think that that the aizen saga should have been 80 chapters at most

      • Norman Fong Ochoa

        I read somewhere that Kubo dragged the Arrancar arc because fans asked for it.

    • Miss_Madness

      I keep saying that Kubo is the M Night Shyamalan of shounen manga. The longer he goes the worse he gets, he pop out plot twists like they were candy. Not to mention all that retcon in the recent arc.

    • TheExile285

      Or it could be the fact that he’s one screenshot hence “glimpse”….

  • fyi1191

    Who Will Win A J-Stars Victory Vs. Fight? Naruto, Goku, Luffy Or Toriko?

    It’s OBVIOUS that he is gonna win them all.

    • RichyGaming

      Naruto ikr

      • Captain Sumoka

        No he means Goku

        • RichyGaming

          Yes I know. I was being sarcastic. Naruto couldn’t beat Goku, Luffy, I dunno about Toriko but yeah.

  • epndkempot

    Real seiyuu for each character please…

    • isn’t that a given?

      • epndkempot

        Nobody speaks in the first trailer

        • 하세요

          Clearly every character is mute, then.

    • For some reason, the thought of the voices for Gon and Naruto being in the same game amuses me more than it should.

      • Zero_Destiny

        Yeah but because Madhouse’s new adaption Gon would probably have his new voice actress Megumi Han over Junko Takeuchi. lol

        • That’s actually kind of why. “Hi old Gon :) I’m new Gon!” Especially because, from what I saw (which … was admittedly not a lot), they sounded … very very similar.

          • Zero_Destiny

            ha ha ha New Gon vs Old Gon.

            Maybe Han can tell Takeuchi that she can’t have ALL the big named shonen heroes, and Tekeuchi can tell Han she’s not fit for the part. xD So silly.

            Meta-cross-over trash talk. lol

          • Bonus NG+ conversation ;)

  • malek86

    Why did they go for this weird CG-like style graphics? Given that it’s all about manga characters, something cel-shaded like Ultimate Ninja Storm would have been much better.

    • Bobby Jennings

      Not like Namco specializes in Cel-shaded graphics like CC2 does.

    • Koibito888

      Actually in mention of specifically another game, a rep from CC2 was asked in interview why they decided to go for the more anime-like cell shading and asked if it was easier. He said they did it to appease the fans more for this game to stick true to the anime but it was in fact harder to do cell shading, that CG was actually far easier. This being a crossover game doesn’t need to focus too hardly on sticking to the style since it’s all about the characters and the gameplay while still making it look good, and honestly the CG still does look good so thats all that matters. Point is it’s harder to do cell shaded graphics so they are probably putting that effort to better use.

      • malek86

        I can imagine that cel-shading is harder. That said, it’s always weird for me to see a manga-based game with CG graphics. It also happened with the newer Dragon Ball titles.

        I imagine Naruto is kind of an exception, then. I wish it weren’t, though. One Piece Musou wasn’t quite the same, but still looked closer to the original style than this game.

        • Koibito888

          Yeah but this style still looks really good, it’s not even a case of good vs bad as more so different vs original. Plus there’d be little purpose in putting in so much work for a game not releasing anywhere but Japan. It is weird but by no means bad, I personally love it and think it’s top notch graphics (for both this AND the DBZ game). I just don’t really blame them here especially as good as it does look, at this point it doesn’t need cel-shading.

  • Carlos Luis Ayala

    Is there any artists here who can do some fan art maybe a roster post it on my page if yes.

  • Koibito888

    Who would win is an odd question for news but Goku is the strongest out of the four if you’re wondering lol. Now if they stuck Seiya in he would rofl stomp all four of them easily but yeah lol.

    • malek86

      It’s always kind of strange to compare people within different series. For example, Goku can blow up galaxies, but chances are that he would lose against even some of the weaker Jojo enemies who rely on meta-physical powers rather than brute strength.

      Besides, even within the same series, games have to be balanced. I don’t think you’d ever see Vegetto lose against a Saibaiman, but in a game it could happen if you have a more skilled player use the latter :P

      • Koibito888

        Well… Goku can’t blow up galaxies. He can’t even blow up a star really, even counting the new movie. People always overestimate DBZ strength but he could still take out everyone introduced so far (maybe not Gintoki only because I don’t know his stats) if we’re talking characters alone. Of course gameplay should be balanced though, I was just stating how odd it was for a news update to ask that haha.

        • look up the amount of force that it takes to blow up a planet in dragon ball z even krillin can destroy a small to mid sized planet super saiyan 4 goku can destroy a galaxy

          • Minos

            Most of Medaka Box’s characters could defeat Goku.

            All of them are over-powered inmortal beings.

            On Saint Seiya most characters have infinite power and on top of that the dont break this with their fists, they literally destroy atoms.

            Sagas’s “Galaxian Explosion” is the equivalent of 2 galaxies crashing and exploding, and he is not the strongest character.

            And al really wrotte too much.

          • Koibito888

            Umm… No lol. Goku at most can destroy up to the mass of 10 planets in SSJ1 ONLY after the end of the new movie. As far as before the movie/beginning? It takes Goku full power SSJ3’s full power to barely destroy the mass of ten planets (aka, King Kai’s planet which is ten times the density of earth) and might I remind you that one basic star can fit one million Earths inside of it? Goku cannot even destroy a star, even after the end of the new movie, let alone a galaxy.

            Krillin also never destroyed a planet of any kind so I have no idea where you’re getting that from. We have to see it in canon before you can assume it.

            GT never happened, it’s non canon, and even if you wanted to look at it, based on feats, SSJ4 is weaker than SSJ3 (one of the many reason’s GT is inconsistent) so yeah. SSJ4 isn’t a thing.

            Mind you, Goku is still stronger than the other three mentioned characters, but he is not THAT powerful, that’s just a fact.

    • ToshiChan

      It’s all hypotheticals when you combat heroes from different mangas though. Goku can probably win in a straight up fight between any person given thus far, but have Light write his name in a book and even the mighty super saiyan is kinda dead.

      • Koibito888

        Yeah but when you pit characters against each other in a versus match you pit them against each other, in a fight, head to head, counting only canon feats of strength and power unless stated otherwise (Ex. specifying GT Goku since GT wasn’t canon, or Goku before a certain point) in which case you look at how fast they are from what they show, how strong they are from what they can blow up.

        Say in a fight between Goku and Light, it’s a fight so they are going at each other without reason, Goku knocks out light before he writes in the death note. You can’t assume a fight where Light is far away and can write his name, that’s not really a fight, being why no one pits them against each other lol.

        So yes it’s hypotheticals, but it’s educated and calculated hypotheticals. Until people start overestimating DBZ that is lol. But Goku could beat the three mentioned characters as well as the rest, I just don’t know about Gintoki if he were added since I know nothing of him lol.

  • Göran Isacson

    Iiii’ma go with the guy who can blow up planets. Just a hunch.

    • Testsubject909

      Even in the special episode of One Piece where Luffy, Toriko and Goku gathered up on an island to compete for a legendary piece of meat, everyone pretty much stood in awe of Goku with everyone expressing great interest in his strength…

      And Goku also never went full power and was still a great threat to everyone in the battle royale so yeah.

      Goku pretty much destroys any competition in this game.

      • Göran Isacson

        Ha ha, yeah, pretty much. I’m not dissing the guy either, jus saying that expecting there to be any competition between him and any shonen hero who doesn’t need to charge up enough power to blow up a continent when they fight a villain is going to be a hard sell.

    • Sonic Vue

      you do know hes never blown up a planet..

      • NimbusStev

        But he has the capability to, that’s the point.

  • niko

    Everytime i see this I think the same two things
    1) This looks awesome and I want it.
    2) Why not just make the spiritual successor to Ultimate Jump Stars we all want? Why make it a normal fighting game instead?

  • Minos

    This fight?

    Lest say it is the characters as they are now:


    However, Toriko’s characters strenght is getting closer and closer to DZ level.

    Not that mathers, a lot of other Manga characters could defeat those 4.

    • RichyGaming

      I dunno about that but I do know the main character from Beserk is more manly than these 4.

    • Aidan Gamble

      Luffy’s would be a lot higher than you think he is. Remember, he doesn’t use any supernatural powers other than the Gomu Gomu no mi, but his raw physical power is far, far higher than Naruto and easily stronger than Toriko(though Toriko has the ability to imagine stuff and make it reality, though even that is based upon your ability to make the other person BELIEVE the illusion, and I don’t know how that would work against a wielder of the Conqueror’s Haki.)

  • leingod

    I don’t even know who Toriko is… he looks kinda like a smirking Kenshiro with Goku-colored overalls. The others in the roster are looking pretty good, though. Hope they put Seiya in there somewhere.

  • eilegz

    hopefuly crossbuy crossplay

  • Faaaaaaiiirly sure that Gintoki always wins, 9 to 1, all matchups.

  • Sephiroth420

    Kakarot will win!

  • Jude

    I hope to see Sena Kobayakawa here XD

    • Dexward

      What? Why?

      • SunOatBoatMatadorQuattro

        It’s hard to know why?

        • Dexward

          All he’d be doing is dodging.

      • Jude

        so he can you know… Devil bat ghost his way into victory XD hahaha.. and plus if Tsuna is here, they could like say “whhyy do we look a like”? XD haha.. but hey I still want Sena and Tsuna :))))

        • Dexward

          I could see him used in some mini-games or the like. I want more characters that can actually fight like Tsuna. I want to see Nube, Neuro, Allen, Jotaro, Kenshiro, Taikobo, Yoh, Kazuki, Train, Nura, Medaka, Korosensei, Seiya, Oga etc.

  • PotatoPower

    Where is Sawada Tsunayoshi? D:

  • Arcana Wiz

    Every screenshot they release it’s so awesome, pretty sure that i will import this.

  • SunOatBoatMatadorQuattro

    Gintoki will win. They are all fiction to him.

  • Spirit Macardi

    Hmm… Goku has an advantage if he goes Super Saiyan, but Luffy’s different Gears are quite powerful as well. However, if Toriko packed along or stumbles across some choice cuisine, you can look forward to him dishing out some powerful attacks that can match any of theirs.

    Naruto loses no matter what though x3

    • VietKnight

      If they have Mr.Satan he will win by pure luck

      Just recalled an old episode from One Piece that had Goku, Luffy and Toriko

  • Learii

    where shaman king

  • Dexward

    Come on. Where’s the manliest characters yet? I want my Kenshiro and Jotaro.

  • The characters models look like PVC statues for this game. I think they would have come out better using some kind of cel-shading visuals, but I think this works fine and still cool.

  • This game looks…really good like, this looks like it could have been a PS4 game or something going by the screenshots.


  • hazelnut1112

    From what I been seeing, it looks like this might play like Anarchy Reigns.
    Looking forward to this so much. Obviously we are going to import this.

  • SuBw00FeR

    I think i’m the only one who enjoyed Bleach for it’s entirety :(

    That said, I’m eagerly looking forward to this! Hope there’s some crazy collector’s edition for it! :D

  • Ixbran

    still waiting for at least one female fighter you guys …

  • Gideon de Groodt

    I see people going on about Aizen from Bleach pulling shit after shit after shit?

    I imagine Bleach turning into on of those guys from a RolePlay chat that hate losing so keep going on like they’re invincible- Or taking hits and saying shit like:

    “This isn’t even my final form!”

  • Ben Sylvia

    Oh cool Yusuke.

    So. How slim are the chances of this coming out of Japan?
