  • cyberkinghardy

    I’ll play as Medaka if I ever got the chance to get this game. It’s just a fighting game so I don’t care if it’s in Japanese.

  • Surgeon of Death

    Ok theres sasuke and vegeta. NOW WTF IS HIEI?!

    • Julio D. Zulkarnain

      will be revealed along Killua (I hope). Now the real question is: WHEN WILL JOTARO AND KENSHIRO BE REVEALED NAMCO!?!

      • NeoStrayCat

        I second this, they’ve been out in their own games lately (Jojo ASB and Ken’s Rage 1/2), but yeah, it would be real manly if they brought them over, also, their respective partners/antagonists if possible too! :3

    • Rohan Viajar

      either Hiei or Kurama. just for me, I mean. but yeah!

      • axess707

        I’d prefer playing as Toguro Ototo though.

    • hazelnut1112

      Kuwabara is a better choice than Hiei.

      • Spider-Man

        I need to hear him call Yusuke “Urameshi!”

  • That’s dorai’s seiyuu from Highschool DXD

  • TimeMaster

    Nice new trailer. I want to see Medaka and Kumagawa gameplay footage soon.

  • epy

    Hmmm.. does anyone even like Sasuke anymore?

    • EtherealEarth

      Naruto does XD

      • Namuro

        Oh, you!

    • Guest

      I’d prefer Inuyasha, Ranma and Lum :P

      • epy

        Indeed. All Shounen Sunday characters though. Unless…

    • Herok♞

      hes pretty alright

    • Dark Zerato

      If you dont like him, feel free to beat the crap out of him.

    • Sergio Briceño

      I like him. He is badass. And the whole story is centered around him. It should be called “SASUKE” and not “NARUTO” to be honest.

      The only thing I don’t like about him is pretty much everyone in the series either likes him (girls and Naruto), acknolwledges him (bad guys) or wants him dead (good guys). It’s like he is the center of attention everytime he shows up…

      Yeah, I think I’ll “say” I don’t like him, just so I won’t be judged…

    • Rayshawn Davis

      I like Sasuke, and I’ll be maining him along with Yusuke within this game.

    • Miss_Madness

      Apparently the down votes fairies don’t. He’s alright by my books.

    • Nice Boat Quatro

      Prepare to see getting downvotes by salty fairies when I say I like Sasuke.

  • Pdugna

    and dragonball characters own all of this…..

  • Kaitsu


    I love Japanese trailers.

  • Sergio Briceño

    This trailer was madness. I still don’t like the big target over the enemy currently targeted, but I understand it’s necessary with so many characters on screen. Also, I like how some moves are even taken from some special moments in the mangas (even if they were used just once), like Gon smashing a floor tile, nice touch.

    It’s the best use of no cell shading 3D models I’ve seen for a cartoon style game btw. Maybe for it’s 50th anniversary, they will look much better on PS4.

    • Pdugna

      Tile smash the action itself not the tile..is actually used alot more in battle with Gon….question for this is if we will see Gon turn into his form also

  • Keine

    I want some girls in this game dammit…

  • Soooo no Natsu from Fairy Tail? D:

    • Natalie Rath

      Fairy Tail is not published by Shounen Jump…..

    • British_Otaku

      That’s Shonen Magazine and Kodansha.
      Not the same publisher or magazine.

      Fairy Tail has popped up in it’s own crossover games on the PSP if you look for a while.

  • Natalie Rath

    I want Katsura Kotaro.

  • Kaihedgie

    Normally, I never ever complain about character rosters, but really? Is that baby…thing really necessary in this game? Who in Jump’s entire fanbase thought: you know what this game really needed? That diaper-wearing…thing from that manga most(?) of our reader base doesn’t actually care for.

    • Namuro

      I’m pretty sure people in Japan care… The oldies would definitely appreciate the inclusion of classic characters like Tarou. Once again, keep in mind that this game targets Japanese audience first and foremost. Therefore, expect to see ‘obscure’ (which are actually popular in its homeland) characters like Tarou.

      Also, Tarou is not just some baby, he was based on Sun Wukong, so in a way… you could say he’s the same as Son Goku!

      For those who are interested, just google this: 珍遊記 ~太郎とゆかいな仲間たち~

      • InfectedAI

        Isn’t this game targeting the Japanese audience only? Unless I missed a localization announcement.

        • Namuro

          Uh, yes…? I believe I did say that “…this game targets Japanese audience…” in my post.

          • InfectedAI

            You said first and foremost. I was just saying here it’s not targeting them first, it’s targeting them only since it won’t be localized which sucks.

          • Namuro

            Ah, I see. Well I said that since it’s not exactly guaranteed that this game won’t be localized. Besides, the game is on PS3, which is not region locked. So if I was the game developer, I would expect that there will be customers from overseas who would get this game as well. So there are other customer groups that the game developers are aware of, but they’re not designing the game for those said groups.

      • Kaihedgie

        I actually know quite a bit of obscure stuff regarding manga and anime. Hell, I do so because I look for a particular subject that interests me and yet I’ve never heard of this guy. No one here on Siliconera has and I’m awfully sure a lot of us are anime nerds, our knowledge for some of us extending back to the black and white classic anime such as Eight Man and Gigantor and yet none of us has heard of this guy. I even Googled this guy up myself. Oh, results came up, but no one is talking about the series or discussing it in any matter.

        The biggest issue with this however, is that this is from Shonen Jump. A lot or all of Jump’s series are well known, but everyone is tilting their heads at this.

        • Namuro

          Which was why I wrote things like. ‘…which are actually popular in its homeland…” I’ve been a fan of anime and manga (or everything about Japan, basically) since I could remember, and yet, there are TONS of things that I still don’t know or have heard of.

          No matter how much of a fan you are (including me), you can never know as much as the people in Japan themselves.

          Also, looking at Man☆Gatarou’s (the creator of the character in this subject) works…I don’t think it’s something that people outside of Japan can appreciate. His works are full of really, really, really weird, obnoxious, outrageous, NSFW, loli, old hags, super ultra unrealistic violence kind of things…

          I LOVE IT…

          • Kaihedgie

            We have that same stuff here in America

            We call them Adventure Time, Regular Show, Ren and Stimpy, Courage the Cowardly Dog, etc.

          • Namuro

            Well, they don’t have stuff like hairy-old demons groping half-naked underage girls in swimsuits and breakdancing grandma who spins her saggy boobs like a helicopter rotors, do they?

          • Kaihedgie

            One of the newest episodes of Adventure Time featured heavily implied on-screen sexual intercourse

            With slime girls

            Regular Show had a big-headed Jesus look-alike as a main villain, plots revolving around “Death sandwiches”, basketball deities, time lords, etc.

            Courage had to once confront a creepy-looking CGI animated character that inflicts curses on people who have stolen something in particular, explosive hair gel, amongst other things

            And Ren and Stimpy…

            Toast Man.

          • Namuro

            It’s still just ‘implying’, against stuff that actually ‘happens’, though.

          • Kaihedgie

            Would you like to see the “Spooning” scene then?

            No, they literally and explicitly call it spooning.

          • Namuro

            Look, why are we even comparing cartoons here? The point is that just because people outside the target audience don’t know certain popular characters, it doesn’t mean that they can’t put said characters into the game.

            Let’s say, I don’t read much Superheroes comics, I don’t know some characters like Iron Fist (to me, he’s pretty much an obscure character, compared to characters like Spiderman), but that doesn’t mean they will leave him out of games, just because people like me (who is actually in the target group, since I play fighting games, and the fact that MvC was released outside of Japan) don’t know him.

            Also, don’t you think that this could be a way to promote these ‘unknown’ characters in a way? Other characters like Bobobo-bo Bo-bobo became more well-known after people saw him in Jump Super Stars (I know they aired the anime overseas, but a lot of people I talked to and have heard comments online claimed that they know him from the game, and not the anime).

          • Kaihedgie

            A lot of people know Iron Fist on an international level. He’s far from obscure

          • Namuro

            I did say *to me*, and at least my circle of friends.

          • greeeed

            who the hell is Iron Fis?
            Google”ing” it… marvel character with batman mark?

            than again it’s normal that I don’t know him since I don’t live in USA

            (Outside USA only get main Marvel and DC characters comic just like people outside Japan only get main anime like Naruto, DB…etc)

          • Kaihedgie

            Don’t need to be from America to know who Iron Fist is. A friend of mine from Europe is quite the DC and Marvel nut

          • fairysun

            Who the heck is Iron Fist? Is he talking about Tekken?
            Anyway, yeah, Namuro is right. This game is a good chance to promote some unknown characters. Kind of Injustice. That game introduced some unknown character to me(like Deathstroke).

          • Kevin Schwarz

            Seriously dude? Where do you live at? Japan? It’s a good thing to know about other cultures and pop cultures, such as Japan, but if you DON’T know jack about your own pop culture/culture…say, America or Europe, then something is wrong with your perception of the world.

            I see you @Namuro implying things, you have a point, but also don’t close yourself to Japanese culture, because then you are being just negative about the rest of the world. Remember guys, Japan is a great country and all, but they also have bad things about their pop culture like everyone else, like said tentacle monsters, and all that stuff…

            Back in topic, I agree some of the characters in this game will be more like a “service” or “tribute” than actually good addition to appeal the public. Today’s youth I mean.

          • greeeed

            it have nothing to do with liking cultures more than other cultures

            he was angry why character that no one know outside Japan was in game

            people answer they add it for Japanese people just like some characters in USA that American like but no one outside it now about them

      • Miss_Madness

        You pretty much hit the nail on the head. This is a game celebrating Shounen Jump characters spanning 45 years. It actually reminds me of tatsunoko vs capcom. Just because they’re are characters you don’t know doesn’t mean they aren’t important to the history of the magazine.

  • hazelnut1112

    Bobobo and Kinnikuman.
    Gonna keep bitching for these characters every time.

    • Valtiel Ikari

      I got your back, and they better add too Kenchiro, or I’m going ATATATATATATATATATA on the creators!

  • Zangetsu777

    Still don’t see Sawada Tsunayoshi & Hibari

  • $36598391

    meh, yet another game that will never see an english release, NA didn’t even get the two for NDS

    • British_Otaku

      You could had imported the two DS ones and Tommo Inc. d distributed copies to Best Buy, Fry’s Electronics and GameStop in the US not even mentioning all of the little import stores or them being THOSE import games that everyone had.

      Being in Japanese is that much of a problem.

      • $36598391

        I believe I remember seeing Ultimate Shonen Jump Stars for the NDS in Bestbuy a few years back but I didn’t know what it was so I never checked it out, I did think it was odd seeing a Japanese game in a NA retailer, never saw it in Gamestop though due to their strict thing about only carrying games with the ESRB rating on it

        I can understand that because of culture differences, Persona 4 for example was rated M here but Japan’s rating system gave it 13 and up

        • British_Otaku

          I would assume GameStop and Best Buy should both refuse games without ESRB ratings, it is a mandatory thing for most services including Steam or PSN/XBLA/E-Shop over there right? Tommo must have had some deal to get them stocked.

          Regardless of your experience and even if GameStop and family didn’t stock it (you know Best Buy definitely did), import stores would do so without an issue. I’m still focusing on your first post, but an English release isn’t really necessary here.

          There are cases where games rated Z (AO in Japan basically) and censored in Japan would be uncut and M or T in the States. If it’s culture differences it goes both ways and both are pretty unreasonable.

  • Virevolte

    Zebra, hu ? Starjun could have been a better choice. But well, it’s okay.

    • British_Otaku

      I would have liked Starjun, but Zebra is an easier character to see in the rival role as he is consistently a parallel of Toriko between being melee focused, wanting Komatsu as a partner and being above his strength while Toriko has changed rival in the Bishokukai (though they have been growing strength too) quite frequently even if Starjun has stuck around for a while.

  • yelad

    Who’s the derpy naked guy?

  • NightzeroAX

    Where’s Uryu and Tsunayoshi?

  • Valtiel Ikari

    …. I’m still waiting for the father of all fighting anime manga characters… where’s Kenshiro? one does not simple do a Jump game without Kenshiro!

  • kenshinx13

    sweet finally some Yusuke gameplay, now just show some Medaka and REVEAL TRAIN ALREADY!

  • Captain Levi

    Where is… Me ?

    • pretty sure attack on titan isn’t part of jump.

    • Kevin Schwarz

      Bessatsu shounen is not Shounen Jump? Two different magazines. You think ALL shounen mangas are published by Shounen Jump?

      • Captain Levi

        … Then I’ll obliterate you and the Shounen Jump.

  • eilegz

    hopefully this its not ichigo last form, if naruto get its latest form i guess ichigo deserve it too….

    i hope they add kenshiro and raoh

  • Göran Isacson

    So I just actually looked at some of the works of Man Gatarou, the dude who made the Son Wukong baby.

    I am now enlightened. Guess he’s a cult favorite in Japan, and I could see why: something that anarchic would probably find an audience who loves it long after it’s faded from the limelight.

  • J_Joestar

    Too bad the trailer doesn’t include the recently revealed Medaka and Kumagawa.

  • iveriad

    So….if there are Rival Characters, who’s Gintoki’s rival? Hijikata? Zura? Takasugi?

    • XiaomuArisu

      Its Kazura!!!

    • HerosLight

      Kagura of course.

      She might not be a “true” rival but, she was playable in Jump Ultimate.

      • iveriad

        I suppose that’s true. I forgot that Kagura is playable in JUS.

        But I really hope that Hijikata or Katsura is playable.
        (Kagura would be fine too though, since Gintama definitely needs more exposure.)

    • Nice Boat Quatro

      Takasugi has barely fought in the series. Hijikata and Zura would be more appropiate especially the latter since he has a lot of comical tactics.

    • zaidandzhadow

      they are antagonic characters not just rivals Gintoki’s would obviously be Hijikata
      Takasugi is the villian.
      Kastsura is a friend.
      Hijikata is the antagonic as he always states that he doesn´t likes Gintoki but he loves to fight besides Gin and be on the same group and compete over anything like Goku-Vegeta.

  • Jonathan Tse

    Zebura confirmed best support. and i was hoping to see Medaka.

  • tubers

    So, do we finally have an actual VITA screenshot or running footage?

  • Johnnyxt

    this is looking awesome. the only thing they need to fix would be the invulnerability each time you knock someone down. i sure as heck aint waiting for someone to dust their pants off, ima pummel them!

  • Grunwald

    No way, they left in Gintoki’s Soy Sauce spitting sword. Hahahahaha

  • RichyGaming

    Anyone notice how the announcer sounds just like the announcer in Persona 4 Arena?

    • Nice Boat Quatro

      No, the announcer is actually a character from Gintama: MADAO. He often advertises films and games.

      • RichyGaming

        Oh, my bad then.
        He really did sound like him though lol

      • zaidandzhadow

        shut up Madaoooo

  • SuperSailorV

    I’m assuming the entire Jump Ultimate Stars cast are returning in some form or another! It wouldn’t be the same without Jotaro and Dio…

    I really wish they kept this all 2D though. I’m not a fan of the over-the-shoulder 3D types. I guess it’s a different developer though.

  • deadMastershiro


  • Nice Boat Quatro

    I guess I’ll be maining Gintoki, Sasuke and Yusuke. I would have preferred Piccolo rather than another Super Saiyan.

    • zaidandzhadow

      it’s better a 2nd place than a 5th place

  • HerosLight

    Now that my wish list (Medaka and Kumagawa) has been fulfilled, except Kumagawa not being playable.

    I want Train and Eve next.

  • zaidandzhadow

    Shut up Madaooooo

  • Erwin MadJelly

    If they have a chinese version in a few weeks after Japan release, I’m getting it !! I doubt there will be english release for this..

  • harmonyworld

    Shamen King characters too!
    Where’s Yoh and Anna?!
    I hope they aren’t forgotten~

  • samwise bateman

    im going to import this game and pretend it is an IP and make up dialogue for the cutscenes

  • nejihiashi88

    why dont they add the anime vallians too i want madara and youmi and buu or cell =D

  • charles addow

    -sounded so much cooler in my head-

  • Yamato

    Another awesome game for the Vita that will never make it overseas >_>
