  • Cephrien

    I’VE BEEN WAITING FOR YOU, ALLEN WALKER

    • xXDGFXx

      Why must the manga take so long!?! T_T

      • Dansar

        Basically, the mangaka is sick, so it’s on indefinite hiatus for now.

  • Masa

    This games cast is just getting better and better.
    So Alan has been added, how about Yu Kanda. :)

    • http://www.shonengamez.com/ GameEmpireHD (Kaitou)

      Lol screw him. But I wouldn’t be surprised if he gets added.

  • ivanchu77

    biggest version of the article pic

    • Pdugna

      hmm not sure if it’s an add for something else but….was Hisoka from HunterxHunter confirmed? lower left shows him in black with a date on it….might be next character?

      • Guest

        Maybe 21st we’ll see Hisoka and some other enemies for other series :0

      • Derek

        Looks like Hisoka of Hunter X Hunter.

      • Detrimont

        definitely Hisoka, it even has the star and the tear behind him

        • Derek

          That makes sense. Maybe Hisoka and another villain character reveal next month?

      • Rayhan PromisedGallery

        maybe as support

  • http://resettears.wordpress.com/ Reset Tears

    Oh wow, D. Gray-Man… now there’s a walk down memory lane. Allen was a real cutie back in the day; him and the Millennium Earl.

  • Ouryu

    Allen Walker is support.

    • Theob Vious Choice

      Disregard my prior post, yeah, he’s support if the actual article is anything to go by lol.

  • omeganeko

    Awesome.Just need train from black cat now then my wish list is 100% complete.

  • HerosLight

    Allen is support.

    Also, really glad they confirmed online mode. NOW I’m 100% sure to buy it.

  • Raika Souku

    dreams have been granted Allen is now official but is he playable or support if his playable crown clown time!

    • megaten666

      Allen is support.

  • Roberto

    yes seiya

  • Tiinchox

    Taro -> Playable
    Allen -> Support
    … fuck logic… still, I’m glad they announced him, at least is in :P

    • WolfDuo

      Allen and Hiei are on my playable list. .. I hope at the very least they make them as dlc characters later.

      • JonathanisPrimus

        The developers have already said there’s no plans for paid DLC characters, and I can’t imagine they’ll do free ones.

  • Nice Boat Quatro

    Allen: Support

    • Anthony Birken

      I’m torn

  • GH56734

    I’m extremely happy (not the blue cat) for D. Gray Man getting some love (even if as a support)… and Saint Seiya!!!!
    Hope Shaman King will make it in somehow :(

  • ShawnOtakuSomething

    Allen…… Support?! what?! that’s freaking BS. Oh I know why……Ichigo would have been an exorcist as well

    • ivanchu77

      Considering the state of the series the surprise would be that Allen made an appareance at all.

      But yeah, really dissapointed that he is only support, i remember that the manga was extremelly popular back then in the year JUS was released, dunno what happened to it to fall into obscurity like it did

      • BalmungX

        Well,he moved to monthly jump,and the hiatus have been longer and longer

  • James Williams

    Allan’s only support since the series has been on life support for so long.

  • hazelnut1112

    Hell yeah, online mode and a Saint Seiya character to boot.
    I really really want Bobobo and Kinnikuman now.

  • Zonic505

    So what OP will they use for Seiya for the Anison Edition?

    • César H. Sandoval

      Going by his cloth design, I’m thinking of Pegasus Fantasy.

  • Takui Nanao

    YES Iv been waiting for YOU Allen

  • Detrimont

    Allen is probably only a support because the series moved to another magazine relatively early on.

    • BalmungX

      Well,its still jump the difference is that its the monthly one

      • Detrimont

        the main focus of the game is clearly weekly jump though

        • Nice Boat Quatro

          But Seiya hasn’t been on Weekly Jump for decades and his spinoff don’t even belong to Shueisha

          • Detrimont

            neither has Dragon Ball, or rurouni kenshin, or several other series that have characters featured in the games, and the main Saint Seiya series was completely serialized in WSJ

  • Tiinchox

    So 21/1 is the next important date… Maybe that day we’ll get some enemies and/or allies confirmed for some series that only have the MC confirmed (Kenshin, YuYu, Saint Seiya, Beelzebub, Katekyo…).
    I’m happy with 2 charas per anime, but I hope they add third characters as secrets ingame, so they don’t need to announce them in V-Jump or the site… That would be so cool :D

  • Rayhan PromisedGallery

    still no Kenshiro?

    You are already dead, Banco…

    • Daniel Padilla

      because Kenshiro is too OP for this game he will just make the other characters explode w/ his Hundred Crackling Fist

      • Jamele Lawrence

        not goku or ichigo :-P

  • WolfDuo

    So what do people think the chances of this hitting the west?.. I mean I’ll get it anyway but…

    • JonathanisPrimus

      lol%

    • Koibito888

      Not a chance. Licensing makes it impossible.

  • Koibito888

    Yes!! Two of my favorite manga in one release!! I’m so excited! Now all I need to be happy is Yoh and Yugi lol.

    • Daniel Padilla

      if something like Kuroko’s Basketball is in this game then there is no reason Yugioh is left out

      • Koibito888

        I was thinking the same thing, I just want confirmation. I was shocked, D.Gray Man and Saint Seiya are like my two favorite series, did not expect both to be confirmed in the same post. That was just awesome. Wonder if they’ll get support characters too, highly doubt a secondary playable character but that would be cool. They should just reveal Yoh and Yugi at the same time XD

  • Kevin Schwarz

    WTF? I am guessing that’s another way to f’up D.GrayMan…Shounen jump is well known for their grudges against those series not so popular and those kicked out…

    • Koibito888

      What do you mean F-up D.GrayMan?

  • Daniel Padilla

    sigh no Jotaro, Dio or even Kenshiro this game needs a character that can do hundred punches

    • KyoyaHibari

      AHEM. SUNRAITO YERRO OVADURAIVU

      • http://s1.zetaboards.com/Espada_of_Alexandria/index/ konpon568

        You can take your flimsy ripple moves elsewhere, if you want to survive an encounter with Kensh- Oops, too late.

        • KyoyaHibari

          I’m all for Kenshiro, hell, Johnathan is just a character based on his sincerity and compassion but he’s super GAR with his fisticuffs and passion. With that said, Jotaro just took Ken’s stoicism and tries to be all cool but he isn’t as naturally GAR. He just lets Star Platinum do all the work while he stands around looking supr srs.

  • mike dickson

    allen support wtf it should be the other way around well screw logic

  • darkfox1

    Aw man Allen is only SUPPORT?
