    Super Milk Time!

  • Tatsumi Oga hell ya!!!

  • Who on Earth is the strange adorable top-hat man and how does he support such a large head???

    • That’s Reborn from Kakekyou Hitman Reborn!

    • kyo354

      The greatest hitman in history that’s who!

  • raitouniverse

    Ahaha, I get it. Announce the characters with a baby on their shoulder together. Rather clever.

    • Arcana Wiz

      overpowered babies, one is the greatest hitman alive, and a overlord who is is destined to rule earth in the future… yeah.

  • Rohan Kishibe

    OH MY LORD! I don’t care if this doesn’t come to america. SOOOOOO IMPORTING THE HELL OUT OF THIS!

  • Roberto

    too bad Kagura is just a support
    but i happy too see oga in the game

  • British_Otaku

    And people were worried about these shoe ins? :P
    I believe this is Oga’s video game debut, so I’m glad it’s a playable one.

  • Dark Zerato

    I hope Beelbou doesn’t give Oga an electric shock while he is fighting. And they should add Hilda to the roster.

  • XYZ_JolteonZ980

    Looks like we have a new contendor for game of the year 2013. Look at that Tsunayoshi Sawada, best character ever even with a manga that ended. Glad Akira Amano suggested he get into the game. Will main him 99% of the time and Sasuke Hotchiha too.

    • Herok♞

      Well the game is out in 2014.

  • Arcana Wiz

    Okay now i’m much more interested in the game. beelzebub was one of the best manga that i read.

  • I know that Hibari would love to be there. Going up against the likes of Goku, Luffy, Naruto, Ichigo, etc with a pair of tonfas.

    • KyoyaHibari

      I’ll bite ’em to death…

      • Haha. Speak of the devil!

      • British_Otaku

        Always thought it was an odd turn of phrase, but always loved Hibari.

    • Enma_Kozato

      I get my time to shine too, right?

      Right? (; A ;)

  • ZnTxn

    I was wondering when they would announce a Reborn! character.
    Now I need to get this game.

  • Jesse Torres

    Very nice addition.

  • xAKUM3TSUx

    I can’t believe it…..The main character of one of my most favorite manga’ “No good Tsuna” was actually announced!? I can die happy now TT_TT

    • AkuLord3

      Not yet…you can die…AFTER u play him in the game 83

      • xAKUM3TSUx

        ok I’ll stay alive a little longer…lolz

    • Vash bane

      I shall take that dying will to game for the both of us.
      (bad pun is bad)

    • Koibito888

      As bitter as I am over how the series ended I’ve been praying for Tsuna in this game since announcement! I wonder how far they’ll have him? It’d be cool to see latest power up (save being weak at the end of course… -_-) actually animated since the anime didn’t go that far. That’d be epic!

  • totally excited for this. So i guess there will always be a Beel on Oga’s shoulder while fighting. I wonder if that applies to Tsuna as well. Reborn can be either a stand-alone fighter or a support character.

    • Rayhan PromisedGallery

      they actually can fuse (and even body-switching)

  • Shady Shariest

    Wellp. This means that there might be one headshot no-one want’s to happen in game >:3

  • FitzpatrickPhillips

    Based Kagura. I wish she was playable and not a support.

  • Jahred Down

    Medeka [x]
    Tsuna [x]
    Oga [x]

    It’s like they actually read my posts here! Day 1!

  • BalmungX

    Finnally oga is in the game

  • Azzrem

    Thank you namco..sold!!

  • mike dickson

    what what what ! i want this even more oh god i must import this

  • Theob Vious Choice

    Ok, now you can have my wallet; I was on the edge unless they introduced at least one of these; now it’s a definite buy. Thank you developers!

  • NRool

    Oh man, this game just got a HELL of a lot more interesting to me.
    I wonder if Tsuna will get a rival?

  • katamari damacy

    Needs Kenshiro and Jotaro Jostar.
    If they incorporate 1 character from each of the manga featured in Jump Ultimate Stars i’d be happy.

    • Ninastars

      It’s Jotaro Kujo. And I hope they announce Kenshiro and him at the same time to keep the themed pairings going on.

      They’re probably waiting for the last of the DLC for All-Star Battle to come out next week before announcing anything from JoJo to keep from stealing the thunder.

    • Pinwheel

      If they added Jotaro and Dio or Jotaro and Kenshiro I would actually consider importing this.

  • Dylan Neill

    If I get Yugi i’ll break down with happiness, I hope Tsuna can arm flap again, it was the best move ever.

    • Koibito888

      Yeah I agree~ I would love to see Yugi fighting in epic graphicness and full on fighter!

  • NightzeroAX

    Yeeeeeeessssssssssss. Now Ishida please.

  • Will John

    Yup, all my wishes have been granted….. now I shalll import. Still sorta wishing them add a playable from To Love-RU like Yami or something but whatever

  • Day 1. X Burner will destroy all.

  • Shizumasa

    The roster is getting bigger and bigger.

  • AkuLord3

    No Shinpachi glasses support…well maybe lol

  • Shikagekurogane

    Here are the 5 things I want.
    Xanxus (both of them can be considered Tsuna’s rival)
    Story Mode (Hibari: Ill bite you to death. Zebra: You gettin’ cocky, bastard!?)

  • Fidelis



  • A badass delinquent with a naked Maou baby with a power-up involving Super Milk Time…

    Can things even get more better?

    • 40

      Super Milk Time!!! LOL!

  • Solomon_Kano


    There goes 2/3 of my requests. Now let’s just get Bossun…

    • Raze

      You mean from Sket Dance?

      • Solomon_Kano


    • Carlos Fernandez

      … Yes. He’s the worst character for a fighting game, which makes it a hundred times better. If they don’t though, and put him support, Himeko is in the playable roster. Since I can’t see Switch there. lol

      • Solomon_Kano

        Man… now I kinda want Switch, just to put him up against Gintoki lol.

  • cyberkinghardy

    A must-buy!!

  • Walkingvirus

    Based form Tsuna’s outfit it seems that the one in this game is Tsuna from the future arc. Man I was hoping the latest and strongest version of Tsuna from the Simon Familiy arc.

  • YoshEE

    Finally they add Tsuna!!!!!

  • Internet is Crash

    Kagura support? Now who will represent an alien race that will battle the Saiyans in this brawl?

  • D. Changstein

    I’d like to see the Doberman Detective in this game, heck even Hige Godzilla.

  • Abend

    gibe kenshiro and jojo

  • ShadowDivz

    Swear to god, i wished for both these characters just the other day and here they are. So freaking weird.


  • Frederick Anchores Panahon

    Where’s Recca and Nube????

    • If you’re talking about Recca from Flame of Recca, he won’t be included. FoR serialized in Shounen Sunday, not in Shounen Jump.

  • Zangetsu777

    This is very good news. But I’m still waiting on some more girl characters. To balance out the cast.

  • Göran Isacson

    Baby-sporting Badasses confirmed, and I am excite. Also Kagura. I kind of want her support to be nearly useless until the very last dramatic moments of the match, THEN she puts on her badass face and starts wrecking shit. But until then she just lazes around and picks her nose.

  • Asuna Ilano

    Please, announce Yoh and Anna next. >.<

  • Romancer Ecclesia

    Gonna get it whether they localize this or not lol.

  • ZeroDayNoir

    Yes I have been waiting for tsuna to be confirmed^^ what a good day for me
