J-Stars Victory Versus Won’t Have Paid DLC Characters

By Spencer . December 16, 2013 . 4:13am

ch05_ph02Namco Bandai held an event for J-Stars Victory Vs. and one of the key details at the presentation is the crossover fighting game will not have any additional characters that will be paid DLC. Impress Watch also reports there are still some unannounced characters to reveal.


J-Stars Victory Versus is slated for March 2014, so Namco Bandai has about three months to reveal the roster. Perhaps we’ll see new fighters at Jump Festa.

    couldn’t even get it anyways even if i import it… :/

  • Rayhan PromisedGallery

    Kenshiro and Saitama please

    • JustThisOne

      But… Saitama’s basically a game over. :V

      • xAKUM3TSUx

        Even more of a reason lolz

    • xAKUM3TSUx

      Agreed, SAITAMA NEEDS TO BE IN THIS GAME!…or at least Genos

  • Valtiel Ikari

    So baoh the visitor will be free DLC? ok, that’s good.
    now, if they could just annnounce Kenshiro in the vanilla game…………. and give me Hentai Kamen as DLC all is good.

  • Tonton Ramos

    No paid DLC?! Take that *censored!* This makes me wanna say…

  • Arcana Wiz

    No paid dlc? more unannounced characters? This pleases me :)

    • John Diamond

      no, they didn’t say ‘no paid dlc’ they said no ‘paid character dlc’

  • icecoffemix

    A step in the right direction again, wow Bamco. :o

  • miyamoto

    Hiei? Kilua? Kurama?Trunks?Broly?Sakuragi?Yoh Asakura? Hokotu No Ken?

    • JonathanisPrimus

      Broly isn’t a JUMP character.

      • Mugiwara

        I would rather say that is a Filler since he is from a movie that is non-cannon.

  • fairysun

    But there will be DLC for ….. costumes !

  • Cliff Ruiter

    Clare from Claymore and yoh asakura from shaman king please!!

  • Cometa Vermelho

    Arale pls

    • Mugiwara


  • Tiduas

    I don’t mind DLC for costumes and stuff that isn’t more than a fun minor detail. But when huge parts of the game like story, characters or levels are missing from the game in order for the company to present it as DLC, then I’m on the raging side of the internet. Thus, hearing about these news was a wonderful way to end the day on and go to bed. Thank you Bamco for taking a step in the “awesome”-direction.

  • James Reilly

    Get Sena from Eyeshield 21 as an assist character again.

    • Rayhan PromisedGallery

      or Hiruma

  • megaten666

    So, the game will have new characters as DLC after release, but not in a paid form? I hope I’m right, because this game has sooooo much potential. It’s like the perfect setup for DLC milking for characters, and honestly, I wouldn’t even mind it if said DLCs would priced fairly.

    • J_Joestar

      or it could just mean that all characters will already be in the game and accessed/unlocked through normal gameplay.

      • megaten666

        Yeah, right… unlockable characters in a fighting game. When was the last time I saw those? Sadly, it’s a dying “art”.
        Anyway, I still think that this game’s setting kinda justifies the character DLCs. 3D anime cross-over fighting games are kinda rare, so I say, support the hell out of the game, Bamco. Don’t wanna see another Battle Stadium D.O.N.

        • J_Joestar

          Smash bros, The Naruto UNS games, Tatsunoko Vs. Capcom, are ones i can think of off the top of my head, though i have cut back a lot on fighting games this gen.

          • megaten666

            Anime Cross-over.
            Smash Bros is not an ANIME cross-over. Naruto UNS is an anime but again, not a CROSS-OVER. Let’s say Tatsunoko vs Capcom is a valid argument there :) But I don’t think that game was on the same level as this game is going to be. Oh, well, just give me characters, the more the merrier :) (and with more chars, more customers are going to be satisfied)

          • J_Joestar

            “Yeah, right… unlockable characters in a fighting game. When was the last time I saw those?” is literally what you said.
            only specific mention of anime crossover was when you mentioned they were rare.

          • JonathanisPrimus

            Here’s a better question: Name an anime crossover fighting game that had DLC characters.

  • ShawnOtakuSomething

    Allen walker, Yugi and Light has to be in this game

  • DanielGearSolid

    Who would want this game?

    • DanielGearSolid


      • Slayven19

        Someone already gave you a thumbs down lol.

  • Just Tim

    I find it generous of Namdai on their part to do this, especially given the licensed nature of this game, while it makes business sense to charge DLC for licensed characters.

  • TheHolypopeofgaming

    TOOO MANY GAMES IN MARCH I’m going to need a small loan to buy them all.

  • nathaniel

    i can’t remember, was this the one that was getting localized or was that the jojo fighting game?

    • Anime10121


      • nathaniel

        aww :(

        • Anime10121

          Well, I wanted both, but expected neither, so its nice to have the one at least imo…

  • [S]unjΔy of Equestria

    Aww man, I can’t wait for this!

  • colorblindnightmare

    Alrighty then! More characters is a great thing!

  • Aoshi00

    Good to hear.. I’m alrdy getting the more expensive ver w/ the anime opening songs.. hope it’s either free DLC or unlockables.. And it’s following the tradition of Super or Ulitmate Jump that all the characters are in the game, not tons and tons of paid DLCs later.. this way everyone enjoys the same game w/ all the characters, w/o the need to double the price. Commendable Bamco!

  • hazelnut1112

    This is Namco, they are straight up lying to you all.

  • Teen Gohan

    I see…so no dlc characters. They better have a lot more characters to reveal then. D.gray-man…black cat…buso renkin. Rivals from the already announced series on the game. But no dlc. Got it. Still looks epic! Lets all hope for lenalee lee!!

    • No “Paid” DLC Characters.

      • Teen Gohan

        That doesn’t mean free. I checked multiple resources. Think about it for a sec, doesnt that sound strange? No paid dlc characters…if it was free dlc characters, they would of said free dlc characters. Im pretty sure im correct about this. Im not holding my breath.

        • Remember how Tekken Tag Tournament 2 did the Character additions for a moment. The answer should come to you in a flash.

          • Teen Gohan

            Im not saying im right. I could be wrong. I hope i am. But i.checked my resources and one of them said what i told you. No dlc characters via paid through psn store. Thats what it said.

  • Xaxal_Ravenguard

    I’ll be honest, no DLC characters makes me want to get it for the Vita.

  • dahuuuundge

    cmon Super Patch! And playable villain characters! I want to play as Dio, Frieza, and Raoh!
