J- Stars Victory Vs. Has Four Storylines To Follow In J-Adventure Mode

By Spencer . February 13, 2014 . 1:35am


For players that want a little story to go along with a fighting game, Bandai Namco made J-Adventure Mode for J-Stars Victory Vs. This actually has four different chapters, In Motion Chapter, Hope Chapter, Research Chapter, and Pursuit Chapter. It appears non-playable characters like Kakashi and Sakura will make appearances in the crossover story.




You can’t have a shonen story without a rival, so we expect characters like Madara Uchiha from Naruto and Akainu from One Piece will have key roles in J-Adventure. Freeza from Dragon Ball Z, Hisoka from Hunter X Hunter, Younger Toguro from YuYu Hakusho, Sosuke Aizen from Bleach, and Shishio Makoto from Rurouni Kenshin.

    • Internet is Crash

      but your stand catches it, right?

  • 3PointDecoupage

    Needs moah Strawhats!

    • British_Otaku

      Even with the whole set or a good few of the Straw Hats (I hate reading “straw whats” by mistake), it will be jarring having Hancock in there over the likes of Ace, Jinbei, Blackbeard or anyone important or core to another story like Kumagawa in Medaka Box.

  • Pandakids09 .

    So i guess this when ad hoc party comes in handy. Kind of sad that this doesn’t have online play for the Vita since Jump Ultimate Stars for the DS had online battle play

    • 256k

      YES, IT HAS ONLINE, This people does not know anything, it is confirmed on the latest scans, the game has Ad-hoc and Online on PSVITA, also the official webpage confirms it too, look:

      PSVita 1人(オンライン時1~4人)
      (1-4 people online at the time) per person PSVita

  • TempestTwin

    Good work Namco Bandai, waste time on a pointless mode which will only have 2 – 3 runs replay value max (like how most fighting games stroy modes end up) and don’t focus on adding more playable characters/reps into the game. Pathetic.

    People who dislike my comment, sorry I am not a Goku/Luffy/Naruto/Ichigo fanboy!

    • Heartek

      So much hate…. why :-)))

      • TempestTwin

        Because they would rather waste time on this mode instead of making Allen and Neuro full playable characters, and other characters on top of that. Put it this way. Online is going to suck because of the lag. Adventure mode is going to get boring because thats how all fighters story mode end up. So the only thing they should be focusing on is the character selection and the gameplay mechanics, as to me the character roster is what makes these types of fighters special. I’m thinking of the end game here, not just see a few screenshots and have a smile on my face like the rest of the fanboys out there.

        • Namuro

          Calm down dude! You’re gonna pop a blood vessel there.

          I know it’s frustrating when things don’t go your way, but what can you do? Raging on a site like this won’t change anything. You might wanna try tweeting the developer or something.

        • DivinePhoenix69

          The game isn’t even out yet so don’t you think it’s a bit too early to make assumptions? Also there are already plenty of characters as it is.

          • TempestTwin

            Plenty characters does not mean 30 characters in a universe this big. No way, it should be bigger. Having the character roster as big as Jump Ultimate stars is a long stretch but heck they should of at least paid respects to series such as D.gray-man by putting allen as a playable character.

        • Hentailover

          Characters that make it into the game are decided by a poll that was held in 2012. Japanese fans VOTED for most of those characters.

          Be glad that Allen is in the game at all, considering the condition in which D.Gray-Man is. I am bummed out too, but there’s a behind the scenes context that you are missing.

          A lot of fans in japan would play the story mode to see their favorite characters from different series INTERACT. If you think this holds no appeal, how do you explain why crossovers in movies, comic books and manga are popular?

          Lag is going to happen because game is amde for Japan only. Japan doesn’t have huge distances and has amazing connectivity, so for them, online is going to be flawless. Company isn’t obligated to pour money into netcoding so that importers, at whom game isn’t even aimed at, can play it comfortably.

          Also, fighting games had story modes for years now and it holds a huge appeal to people…. One of the reasons MK9 and Injustice sold so well is expansive story mode. Just because you don’t care, doesn’t mean other don’t.

          • Pandamon

            I think lag is gonna happen despite it being a japan only game, since lag tends to happen in all online games. But if you play online with NA or EU players, the lag is minimized. Although, this is just my experience with gundam extreme vs, which is also a japan only game made by bamco.

          • Ziko577

            I agree. That’s what’s killing a lot of my favorite fighting franchises because the creators are more concerned about the mechanics and story now isn’t much of a high priority. If anything, NamDai is doing a very good job of keeping that centric and not forgoing it in favor of trying to look good.

        • No Items Ever

          Seriously? Hell I think an adventure mode like this should have been here since the original Jump Super Stars. It’s awesome to see not only the characters duke it out in a crossover, but also talk to each other and have certain character personalities cross. It’s one of the reason that games like Namco x Capcom aren’t praised mostly for the gameplay, but the blending of worlds as well. If we didn’t have a mode like this I think the game would have been pretty barebones in a single player department which many games are ignoring now.”

          Also they said that DLC would come out for this game and it is believe or not, FREE. So we can just wait for that when it comes out, and with a game as cool as this, I’m sure support will happen for quite a long time.

          • TempestTwin

            Well to me seeing personalities cross is useless, as I don’t understand japanese, and since this game most likely won’t be localized and if I do end up purchasing the game like I did with Jump Ultimate stars, then obviously the only thing I will get out of the game is fighting. This game is meant to be the successor to Jump Ultimate stars, which I expected it to be better, not worse.

            DLC might be free, but lets be honest how much DLC ever gets released and worked on for long periods of time. I doubt it would be anything worthwhile.

          • Rayshawn Davis

            Actually this game isn’t the successor of Jump Ultimate Stars, Namco Bandai has not expressed any details, interviews, press releases, or facts stating that is is. It is similar, but it isn’t in anyway, a successor to that particular nintendo exclusive franchise. If it was then it would have been clarified, but no, it is its own product.
            It’s a fairly common mistake that some people haven’t figured out quite yet, so no biggy.

        • Rayshawn Davis

          Actually Adventure Mode is very important because you attain card decks from playing throughout the mode to help customize your favorite characters and make them stronger. Of course beyond that it has a few other incentives of customization for characters. So it actually gives you reason to play the mode more. It’s not just a simple story mode.

          • TempestTwin

            I will believe it when I see it, because it could very end up just like Super Smash Bros Brawl sticker mode, which was useless.

          • Rayshawn Davis

            The translated scans pretty much tell you what you can do in the mode.

        • Kaihedgie

          So what you’re saying is: I’m mad because the characters *I* want aren’t in it
          And somehow you have this criticism actually extend to the actual quality of the gameplay despite never having played it before.

          • TempestTwin

            I’ve played other fighters before to make my judgement, and no I’m not mad because I can’t have my way, I’m pissed off that they are doing a half assed job in not extending the roster like they did with JUS, and its not fair how characters such as Allen and Neuro got the cut.

            Who wants to bet after this game will be released it will just be forgotten about due to people getting bored of the game due to the lack of characters in the game and already have beaten adventure mode.

          • Kaihedgie

            You’re not serious, are you? You did not just say that.

            You’re insinuating that people will forget about a game just because of a few characters that you yourself specifically wanted aren’t in? Maybe YOU will forget, but people across the world sure as hell won’t forget that this game allows you to have match up between Ichigo and Yusuke and Madara and Aizen.

            You ARE whining because it isn’t the roster you wanted. Because of two characters that aren’t playable. And you are judging the whole game because of it. Why else would you say this game would be forgotten?

            No, I think this game would be forgotten if it didn’t have DBZ, Naruto, One Piece or Bleach in its roster. Y’know, four of the most popular anime/manga series out there, not a manga series that’s been put on indefinite hiatus and whose anime ended a very long time ago.

    • subsamuel01

      This is a anniversary game celebrating their IP, obviously Namco is going to give a bigger spot light to the popular shows. Without One Piece, Naruto, Dragonball where do you think Weekly Shonen jump would be where it is today.

      • TempestTwin

        Yes, but this game is meant to be the successor to Jump Ultimate stars, and for a
        45th anniversary game you would think they would put in more playable
        characters from more respective series such as D.Gray-man.

        • Kaihedgie

          Except it’s not a successor. It plays absolutely nothing like that game.

          • TempestTwin

            Are you joking? Thats just like saying zelda 2 was not the successor for zelda 1 when at the time it was the successor.

          • Kaihedgie

            These games don’t even share the same title, so your analogy fails even more :|

          • Rayshawn Davis

            Kaihedgie is actually correct on this one. This game isn’t related to that particular franchise because it does not stem from the same trademark or copyrights. Plus again, it would have been noted through interviews, etc if it was. But it isn’t.

    It was thanks to Siliconera that i didnt buy the Gundam Breaker PSVITA Version, cause they told us that it only has AD-HOC, ONCE AGAIN, THEY’RE WRONG, Now i have my Gundam Breaker with ONLINE on MY PSVITA ¬¬


    • Raze

      Really?That’s great…

      The one who wrote this article should change it fast then….

    • DivinePhoenix69

      That’s kinda your own fault really, you should have done some research beforehand, so the attitude really isn’t necessary at all.

      • TheExile285

        Its his own fault for being provided incorrect info? Lol

        • DivinePhoenix69

          It is in regards to the Gundam thing. Even then him lashing out like that over a tiny mistake made by Spencer is pretty uncalled for.

          • The all caps and stuff is a bit much but no it’s not his fault for getting wrong information, which apparently already happened regarding Gundam Breaker.

          • 256k

            The caps its cause as soon as this has been posted, it has been posted on GAF too, making a lot of people get confused without reason, like with Gundam Breaker, if this is his job, they have to make a good research before post it, if not i dont know what they’re doing

          • DivinePhoenix69

            See my above post.

          • 256k

            So that means you cant work on this, cause pages like this exist to inform, if you dont know what you need to make a notice, then dont post it, dont try to defend them, its his mistake

          • icecoffemix

            I don’t agree with the way he wrote it but he is not at fault for being misled, at all.

          • DivinePhoenix69

            That was my main gripe with his post really. It comes off as really rude and childish.

            In regards to Gundam well can’t really say much but i’m pretty sure if the feature wasn’t advertised by the devs themselves or anywhere else then it wasn’t included to begin with, so even if Silliconera may have posted incorrect info it is ultimately up to the buyer on whether or not to make a smart decision in regards to purchasing a product by doing research beforehand, so to put the blame entirely on Silliconera seems kind of silly to me.

          • icecoffemix

            Again it’s not his fault that Siliconera is posting false information. I love this site but I don’t blindly defend it because of my love, in fact it’s harmful for fans and them if they keep slipping up.

            His post can be better conveyed but the message is sound: please check and recheck before posting an article with unconfirmed tidbit.

          • DivinePhoenix69

            You misunderstand me. I’m not “blindly defending them out of love”, heck i myself have pointed out whenever they did make mistakes/post misinformation in the past. The fact of the matter is that every news site/blog messes up at some point, it’s always bound to happen everyone makes mistakes but i digress.

            Like i said blaming the site entirely for a business decision he made is silly, and the way in which he worded it doesn’t help either when it could have been addressed in a better manner.

          • ekibyougami

            As far as I know, according to Ishaan, they have their own writers who do the research and the news content, so I’m pretty sure it’s not Spencer’s fault.
            And [256k] can’t possibly find out about it because some boards didn’t even confirm it until the game was released, let alone some other gaming-news related sites.

            Btw, I had been mislead as well until a friend bought Gundam Breaker and he was able to confirm it for me.

    • TheExile285

      Its fixed now :V

  • TheExile285

    Ugh, I’d import this so hard if it weren’t a March release T^T

    • Raze

      March is sure a hard month…
      I decided to hold of Toukiden and FFX/X2 just to get J-stars along with PDF-2nd…

      No regret….I hope…

  • Byron Kerrison II

    Wait, I thought you control both characters? So it is a 4-player game?
    Great. Now I just need to convince my friends to dish out some extra cash on an import. ( They have NO excuse not to since it has like half of their favorite Jump stars AND is on of their favorite game genres. )

  • ekibyougami

    March 2014
    > J-stars Victory VS (tempted to buy the more expensive Anisong edition)
    > FF X/X-2 for Vita
    > Deception IV: Blood Ties
    > Project Diva F 2nd

    This is what those months of savings were for! Go, wallet!!!

    • Chris Simmons

      second son, mgs5g0 :)

  • greeeed

    I guess for people who want to Madara Vs Aizen

    can just play this game

  • megaten666

    “J-Stars Victory Vs. supports online play on PlayStation 3.”

    This sentence disturbs me a bit. Is there an offline split-screen versus mode?

    • DivinePhoenix69

      Yep. Offline multiplayer supports up to 2 players while online multiplayer supports up to 4 players.

    • KyoyaHibari

      Yeah, it’s “1-2 players offline, 1-4 online” so rest assured :).

    • megaten666

      What a relief. Thanks guys :)
      After Battle of Z, I was kinda nervous.

  • fairysun

    With Aizen, Madara, and Shishio as the masterminds behind the evil plan? Just surrender the World already.

    • Minos

      Maybe, but the plan will take at least 3000 years.

      • Kevin Schwarz

        Not with Shishioh in the group, since he has the fastest plans of the three lol

    • WolfDuo

      I like the character seperately. But judging from their characteristics in the manga, I can’t see them working WITH anyone. People working for them, now thats a diffrent story.

      Someone should be double crossing someone.

      • megaten666

        Aizen would be a fitting person for such an act.

        • Kevin Schwarz

          Indeed, however if we put Freezer in the mix, we ALL know what would be the income of Aizen’s betrayal.

          • megaten666

            I definitely want to see an Aizen vs Frieza match now. God bless this game :D

    • KyoyaHibari

      As much as Shishio can invoke a lot of chaos, a lot of people could take him down easily. Now Aizen and Madara’s constant bullcrap is another story lol.

      • Kevin Schwarz

        Yes, they are stronger, HOWEVER Shishio has the bigger brain.

  • WolfDuo

    Was actually hoping for individual storylines, inbetween the main story… This could end up making the game a little lack luster.
    With the same storyline for everyone, it will make the game a little tedious.
    As for online play. Like someone already stated, it’s going to be very laggy.

    • Zarathos No Daimaōh

      I prefer it . There are too many chars for individual story modes to not be completely lacklusters imo

      • WolfDuo

        Well look at Tekken, SF or Marvel vs Capcom. It has a core story, then a story with in the story for each character and a final ending for each char.. Depending on the version, they have all had the same amount of characters as this game. It wouldn’t of killed them.

        • KyoyaHibari

          Tekken 6 is the only one of those that had a real story, and even then it was kind of sparse and uncoordinated at times, Street Fighter has like 2 cutscenes and Marvel has like 1. One collective story will allow things to be fleshed out far more easily, but then again I don’t expect much from a collab game besides multi-universe schemes or villains joining up, yadda yadda.

        • Zarathos No Daimaōh

          It’s a really bad example . Tekken isnt an anime game to begin with . Those are usually done with a cheaper budget , even when wonderfully crafted .

          And Tekken’s story and story modes have been notoriously bad for a long time . You are kinda helping my point there .

          It’s better to have a few cohesive stories (or even one) that might be good , than definitly crap with cookie cutter single stories for each chars .

          Here it’s not even an anime game confined to one peculiar universe , it’s a crossover . How are you going to write something good about Luffy fighting madara then freeza , then Gon , then aizen ? It’s hard to do it well , and get’s impossible to do for each character

  • OathkeeperSoraXIII

    Does anyone know if this is going to be released on the Japanese PS store for download? Or will I have to import it? Thanks :)

    • TheGameTagerZ

      You can download it at the store but only the normal edition.

      Also I reported there were 4 arcs almost two months ago and the names to it too. I should have posted that here haha.

      • OathkeeperSoraXIII

        Thanks a lot :)

  • 하세요

    Hype level grows day after day with news. Even if I don’t know all of these characters, their designs and moves area always so cool.

  • [S]unjay

    I want this game for Katekyo Hitman Reborn and Bleach….sadly, Tsuna is getting the backseat :(

  • samuraimugen

    lol aizen was barely a threat to a city, madara barely a threat to a village even with kyuubi support and I don’t know much about shishio but as it stands, freeza is the only one that’s even a planetary threat, just saiyan
