  • Randgriz

    Seems like the gameplay is exactly like DBZ:Battle of Z combat…

    • Hunts Rattata

      They seem very different, especially in their respective team mechanics.

    • Noctis Lee

      more like Anarchy Reigns

    • Rayshawn Davis

      Someone hasn’t looked up the game controls or the mechanics listed upon the game’s website, or seen previous impressions based on the builds at TGS or Jump Festa…J-Stars is a totally different beast.

    • Death Metal

      It is actually more similar to the last Saint Seiya game that came out recently. Still a bit different, though.

    • hawk222

      Speaking of Battle of Z, did anyone figure out how to unlock the last three single-player missions in the demo? I started playing last night, but I only got the first four missions, and none of my Google searches have turned up any answers…

      • Hunts Rattata

        Oh, you can’t get those in the demo.

    • subsamuel01

      Exactly Looks like, but you don’t know. If you read and saw the gameplay video, you would know that their two completely different battle systems.

  • Nitraion

    Wow this is actually looks pretty good… O-o

  • anthony apduhan

    I hope for more videos with other characters…

  • Prinnydoom

    Its all looking pretty awesome. The one thing that has always bothered me about Kenshin is that his JP voice actor just doesn’t fit (to me anyway) aside from that this game’s looking good. LOL at Lala with goku and toriko way to break the mood.

    • Death Metal

      Kenshin’s voice “actor” is actually an actress doing a man’s voice. I don’t like it either, but they thought it would be a good idea for the anime character. I’m not 100% sure if it’s the same voice for the game.

      • Prinnydoom

        That makes way more sense then. Having said that though it does set him apart from other Samurai characters who all have manly cool guy voices i suppose. It still Irks me though.

      • Thatguy

        I think, it because even autor didn’t knew, which gender was Kenshin for some time. Also, he is very young looking dude. Seriously, can you believe, that he is in his 30? I can’t.

        • LightZero

          Actually Kenshin is 28 but I guess that close enough.

    • Pfantzypantz

      I remembered when I first watched the japanese version of Kenshin, and was really shocked and weirded out by his voice, and I’m someone who always prefers original voices and whatnot. But then his voice grew on me and it just fits his character perfectly. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KCdcmh6c5Jg

  • Aside from Luffy, I think there’s some other characters who utilizes rapid fire punch based specials or move. Imagine picking two more with Luffy in your team.

    • Rayhan PromisedGallery

      Gomu gomu noooo gatliiing + watatatatatatatata

      • Cephrien


    • Lloyd Christmas

      Kenshiro and Jonathan.

    • British_Otaku

      Luffy and Jotaro had a team special back in Jump Superstars, it was super deadly when combined with stopping time.

    • Blader

      Seiya also has his Pegasus Ryu Sei Ken

  • Shady Shariest


  • kenshinx13

    Is it bad that just that one video of goku looked just as good if not better than most FULL ON DBZ games x.x (at least by impressions)

    • Son Goku

      um..no. all they did was spam that aerial combo. goku actually has his full arsenal like kaioken, solar flare etc on dbz games. he has none of that here and is horribly nerfed

      • Darthgundam

        woah a guy named son goku has a shocking opinion on goku

      • kenshinx13

        My mistake, i intended that to be about most RECENT dbz games.

  • Kornelious

    Why has word of a localization not reached us yet! :(

    • Hound

      Like most large Jump collaborations, English licensing requires that they deal with a vast swath of licensors that currently hold rights to the franchises in the region.


      There’s a high chance that it will never be licensed in English.

      • WolfDuo

        Pardon my ingnorance. But would the fact that we don’t have a lot of these manga’s in the west help on our side?
        Plus, it would be a great way for JUMP to introduce these animes to the west.

        • TempestTwin

          I don’t think it would help, because if anything they would be more inclined not to release it in the west as we are not “familiar” with the characters. Judging how previous Jump games were not localized here, I doubt this one will come to the west.

          • subsamuel01

            This is a pretty big budget title, people said JoJo would never be released outside Japan. If enough people ask I’m sure they would try.

          • TempestTwin

            Trust me, I would love to see this game localized here in the west as much as the next guy, but just looking at the track history with previous Jump games convince me otherwise. I wish there was enough support to bring this game over in english.

    • Death Metal

      You better get used to the idea of importing it, or you’ll probably miss it for at least a couple of years.

      • Kornelious

        I’ve imported before, but I just want to make sure it’s abosolutely not coming over before I do. And it just really seems like this is a shoe in for the western markets.

    • Arcana Drill

      licensing nightmare.

  • fairysun

    I don’t think I can wait for this game to be translated. Just gonna import it.

  • Namuro

    Luffy is such a beast!!

    That’s it, I’m gonna main him for sure!

  • BlackUnloaded

    Anyone know if this is Cross-Buy between PS3 and Vita?

  • ZetaSiren

    Doubt this will be localized since all other J-star games have never been localized :/

  • Razvaille

    Oh god! This game is not a generic fighting game, the characters are really diferent ;) Like Dissidia + Naruto Storm ;)

  • Arz

    Is there any Jojos or Kenshiro gameplay footage yet?

  • Seta Soujiro

    Amakakeru Ryu no Hirameki! This is awesome :D

  • Tenabrus

    Damnit if they can’t get this released over seas I’m going to have to import it for the Vita cause this looks to epic!

    • 하세요

      You will have to import it. It’s not even a question of it leaving Japan. I don’t think any number of petitions can justify the cost of the licenses.

  • [S]unjay

    I want to see Tsuna in battle.

  • The 15ᵗʰ Angel

    They said a few weeks ago its not getting released outside japan so get your pre-orders in at play aisia.

  • UnderNight In-Seth

    Oh god, I can’t wait to play as Meisuke. I mean I didn’t even see himcoming in the game, AT ALL. Same with JoJo (both John and Joseph).

  • Kazekage Gaara

    If Attack on Titan could be on dis then O.O but I am glad it didn’t go with jump or else it wouldn’t have been as good.

  • Croix Zapp

    too bad they don’t stand a chance since Kenshiro is in the game too,,,

    • dizzyb230 .

      Goku flicks his wrist.

  • Charles the Returned

    Power level: DBZ > JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure >> every other character in the game lol.
