Watch Out! Goku, Yusuke And Naruto Can Also Transform In J-Stars Victory Vs.

By Sato . November 1, 2013 . 1:03pm

J-Stars Victory Vs., Namco Bandai’s upcoming crossover fighting game, recently showed off new characters in Taro Yamada from the manga series Chinyuki, and Jaguar Junichi from Pyu to Fuku! Jaguar. In a more recent update via Dengeki, we get a look at Yusuke Urameshi and Naruto Uzumaki’s transformations.


Jump is known for having characters who can power up in the midst of a heated battle. The above is a look at YuYu Hakusho’s Yusuke Urameshi in his white-haired demon form, and Naruto in his glowing Nine-Tails Chakra Mode.


While details on the transformations are scarce, Dengeki reports that each character will have their own conditions they must meet in order to transform.


The fights in J-Stars Victory Vs. will be set in 2v2 battles, and each team will be able to select one support character.


The support characters can appear in the middle of a fight to activate a “Support Action”; however, once you use it up, you won’t be able to call them out for a while, so knowing when to time your support will be crucial.



We also get a closer look at how Combination Attacks work in J-Stars Victory Vs., which starts out when two players are locked-on to the same target, and hit the “Start Combination Attack” command. Once you perform the command successfully, a “Cross Chain” activates, followed by a “Combination Guide Cursor”.


Once the cursor is up, you’ll be prompted to press the triangle button in timely fashion, which activates a “Cross Break,” followed by a powerful cooperative attack.


The above images shows a Combination Attack where Luffy starts out with a kick, a beat-down from Goku, then a finisher with both of their signature attacks.


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

      haha, you know nothing.
      naruto would bust out his friendship rainbow flaming birth rasengan

      or his talk no justsu

      • AKA. Talk No Jutsu?

        • John Diamond

          no, it’s naruto’s secret technique. It’s arguably more dangerous than the rasengan. Rather than duking it out, he attempts to talk psychopaths out of their beliefs

          • Amine Hsu Nekuchan


          • John Diamond

            see fight against Neji where he sprinkled his talk no justsu, pein, and Tobi, he tried it against sasuke but failed. oh and the ghost naruto too.

          A.K.A the explanation Temari gave Naruto about his special ability to change the heart of someone when Chiyo died to save Gaara, dood!

        • *SPOILERS*

          Obito is getting his ass killed with this all-powerful jutsu…

    • Pretty sure they can hold up a decent match without Goku going Goldilocks.

      Haters gonna hate but Uchihas for example can easily mindfuck Goku with Genjutsu before he constipates.


      saint seyia characters can create and explode galaxies, move at light speed and kill gods.
      Medaka alone can pretty much put Goku in the floor

      • Lifestreamer

        Can you please tell me when a Saint Seiya character could create and explode galaxies, of course, outside of hyperbole because I’m somewhat familiar with the series, and these feats are completely blown out of proportion.

        There are plenty of characters out there stronger than Goku, but the SS verse, aside a few hax abilities, is not stronger than DBZ period.


          saga with galaxy explosion

          • Lifestreamer

            Just a name, Saint Seiya runs in hyperbole (just love how the “big bang” term is used, Kurumada doesn’t have a faintest idea about energy concepts) .

            This move was used a few times and failed to destroy a single temple (where the fights generally take place), so much for the so called “Galaxian Explosion”…

            Gintama’s Gintoki has a bokutou called “Hoshikudaki” (rough translation “star destroyer”), so Gintoki is a planet wiper now?

            I’m not trying to be a jerk or anything, I’m not a SS hater neither a fanboy (my favorite series when I was a kid), and the very same with DB, but this SS wank is IMHO absurd.

          • Ni ~UNREAL BLACK THINGS~

            Well the temple is pretty much sacred. and is wear the stronger cloths are and is guarded by one of the strongest of the Saints. if it is so easy to get destroyed everyone could put their hands in the Golden Cloth. And yeah the name of the skill doesn’t mean much (Gon have a skill named Jan ken that can kill people in one hit). But the description of the skill says that the Gemini Saint can creat galaxies, collide them and creating a explosion that can reach the same level of a Super Nova. The power of the Gods and/or strongest Saints could wipe the people of earth in some hours and destroy cities or country in minutes we know that watching the anime or reading the mangas. I like both franchises in the same level but denying that SS doesn’t have capabilities of competing with DB in power level is wrong when we have evidences by only watching or reading the material of the franchise.

          • Lifestreamer

            Sacred or not the temples would be a pile of a rubble if exposed to energy attacks at super nova levels just like an average church, the Sanctuary is a hidden place in Greece so the gold cloths are safe from the eyes of the world, even though the saints are a lot stronger than your average human.

            The point of the “description of the skill” is a key point of this discussion: H.Y.P.E.R.B.O.L.E., when Seiya finally put the Pegasus Cloth for the first time he mentioned something about “my fist will tear the heavens” and “my kicks will crack the earth” and yet he was unable to turn some foot soldiers (oblivious to the “cosmo” energy) to dust. Saga’s galaxian explosion creates a galaxy in miniature (because planets don’t fit in temples), they clash, and the final damage output is equal of a ki blast in DBZ, or a bit more, again, because the arena suffers little damage from the explosion, nothing close to a super nova.

            People in SS can wipe the life of the planet in some hours…maybe the gods (MAYBE), the gold saints can move at speed of light, but their moves require preparation, they can not generate large scale attacks, even Athena Exclamation failed to destroy something larger than a city block, maybe a bit more, but DB characters can bust the planet in seconds! Like I said before, the only way to SS compete with DB is the hax way, maybe Shaka’s Tenma Kou Fuku, or some other very specific technique like mind control or something, but power level wise : DB >>>SS.

            Because actual feats>>>Hype.

            Edit: Kami Tenchi>>>>>>>>>>>>DB.

        • Hkig

          Gonna be honest here but Saint Seiya verse can kick DBZ verse’s ass

    • Blaz

      Goku needs to go SSJ to beat them? When the fuck was this? He has more power in a random burp then these two let out at full strength.

  • Chris Yuen

    Some of the gameplay videos that I have seen reminded me of anarchy reigns. Was pretty fun, too bad there wasn’t any local co-op option available back then. Would have been a fun rumble game.

  • Keine

    does this include Ichigo’s True Zangetsu??

  • Carlos Luis Ayala

    No shit we know so can Medaka, Ichigo, and Vegeta :-P

    • TheExile285

      I think it was confirmed that Ichigo can use his hollow mask. SPOILER

      Mugetsu is also his ultimate attack or something.

      • Carlos Luis Ayala

        Di you have a source for the mask rumor we know he uses mugetsu as an attack.

        • Raze

          Mugetsu is the Ultimate Attack…
          Like Bijuu-dama Naruto…

          Maybe his transformation will be the Hollow Mask thing…

          • Carlos Luis Ayala

            I know that but he said he heard it was confitmed

  • So how will Gintama’s Gintoki match up against a Super Saiyan, Kyuubi Chakra Mode, Raizen-Youkai form, Hollowfication and probably even Gon’s Transformation?

    • greeeed

      if it for the lolz than Gintama can steal other people skill.
      example: Final Getsuga Tenshou from bleach

      or he could just enter serious mode like tobi

    • MCoelho

      Gintoki just needs to fight seriously. If it’s not like that then i’ll be dissapointed.

    • Tonton Ramos

      Silver Kain! Idea Engine Linked!

    • Reanau

      He can just call up on Zura whenever he’s on standby.

    • Raze

      He’s already in the final form…

    • Detrimont

      If they put Gon’s transformation in, you should only be able to use it once, and if you don’t beat the opponent in the time limit, you lose automatically

  • AkuLord3

    Wait…2vs2? i thought it was 3vs3? or u can change it to that

    • Hunts Rattata

      A team has 2 player characters and 1 support character.

  • hazelnut1112

    I think pigs are flying. Is Bamco actually releasing a game where you play as Goku AND can transform during gameplay? His regular, Kai Ken, super saiyan and Super Duper Saiyan forms aren’t extra characters?

    What is happening?

    • Scarlet_Devil_Slave

      I guess his only transformation will be SSJ. Don’t think they’ll add all of his transformations.

  • Loli Summoner

    If we don’t get this in the west/they choose not to bring to the west,they are stupid and every caring fan will rage.Because no matter how much I wanna play this,I refuse to play in a language I can’t understand,so importing it is out of the question.

    • Scarlet_Devil_Slave

      Well you won’t get to play it then. The Jump games never made it outside of Japan so why would this one? The game has lots of unlicensed characters, they’d have pay a truck load of cash if they ever wanted to ship it overseas.

      • Loli Summoner

        Guess I won’t then but meh, I rather not blind click.Though its a fighting game, I like to read stuff and understand it.Also idk bout you but “I’ve” never seen a jump game be promoted like this where everybody knows about it and unlicensed characters? like who?and why would it cost a lot of money.

      • Chee Yang

        I guess I wasn’t the only one who got my hands on Battle Stadium D.O.N. for the PS2? Anyways that was a great game.

  • Rayhan PromisedGallery

    am i the only one who wants Saitama in this?
    The Yusuke Murata redraw version is published by JUMP after all

  • SuBw00FeR

    HNNG DEMON FORM YUSUKE!!! Hopefulyl thsi means we see Ichigo’s Hollowfication!!! Or maybe even Vasto Lorde?! COME OUT ALREADY I NEED THIS IN MY LIFE!

  • Raserengan

    is this game will come to US ?

  • Lzyslckr

    I want to know, is there anything stronger then Super Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann?

    • 永次

      Kenshiro, Jotaro and Dio… if Namco announce they.
      If you mean in all anime, watch Densetsu Kyojin Ideon, Demonbane, Zeorymer, Turn A Gundam, Neo Granzon, QanT…

      • J_Joestar

        I’ll give you Demonbane and possibly Zeorymer and Neo Granzon. But Ideon may be able to go for a double KO at most and the Gundams just aren’t gonna cut it.

        • 永次

          Shit, I deleted the post -.-
          Ideon is near to invincible and has the Ideon Gun, can destroy everything, Turn A Gundam has a black hole engine, can destroy everything since Earth to Jupiter with the full Gekkouchou, has auto regeneration and can turn invisible.

          Maybe QanT is not that powerful.
          EDIT: Well, there are a lot of Super Robot Taisen robots that can destroy STTGL.

          • J_Joestar

            Ideon was still taken down in the end which is where the whole “Destroy the Galaxy Self Destruct” comes from. And while the Ideon Gun and Sword can do massive damage, but when you take note of the huge scale difference between Planet Cutting Ideon to Galaxy throwing Grand Zamboa.
            Then you can go and compare that scale with the minute distance between Earth and Jupiter.

          • 永次

            Please, avoid spoilers for that who didn’t watched Ideon yet.
            Maybe Earth->Jupiter is a minute distance, but Gekkouchou can destroy everything in that distance, and Turn A Gundam can move, so… It can destroy everything.

  • FlobotingIt

    It’s a real bummer this game won’t come to the US. It looks pretty fun. I don’t know a lot about this game and the new Dragon Ball game that was just recently announced to be coming to the US, but maybe if that sells well we’ll see it… I dunno, just some wishful thinking.

    • J_Joestar

      the licenses are probably way too spread out for it to ever happen.

  • Red Veron

    I am only buying this for two reasons: Gintama and JoJo

  • Rizky Ichigo-kun JpAni-prince

    For DLC Other Jump But same Publisher Jump SQ Holey Hopely Ao no exorcist Only (y) Okumura rin

  • J_Joestar

    End God Mode please?

  • NoctX85

    Can Gon transform?
