In the Jump universe, there are those who wish to become stronger and there are those who look for challenging fights. In J-Stars Victory Vs. they’ll be doing just that, as they clash against one another in the upcoming all-star brawler. The game’s latest trailer gives us a lengthy look at some of the new features.

 

 

J-Stars Victory Vs. will feature 52 characters spanning across the worlds of 32 different manga series. Starting at the 1:30 mark, we get a closer look at Ryotsu Kankichi from Kochikame, Arale from Dr. Slump, Kenshiro and Raoh from Fist of the North Star, Goku with Vegeta and Frieza from Dragon Ball Z, and many more.

We also get a first look at the new characters in action, with YuYu Hakusho’s Hiei at 2:25, and a glimpse of Ace from One Piece at 2:50. At 2:55 we also get to see Killua Zoldyck from Hunter x Hunter in action, who looks like he’ll also have his new powers for the game.

Next, we get a look at the J-Adventure Mode at 4:19, which will feature an original story that has you explore around the world of Jump. In this mode, you’ll acquire points by winning fights, which can be used to purchase various items and customization parts for your “Memorial Jump” ship.

The collectable J-Stars Card feature will allow you to use cards to power up your characters with different combinations. If you wish to partake in just battles, there will also be a Victory Road feature, that has a straightforward path with battle stages.

 

Finally, the Free Battle mode, as the name implies, allows you to freely fight any way you want, where you’ll be able to set up your teams, rules, and more. Additionally, there will also be a gallery mode, where you can check out figures of your favorite characters.

 

J-Stars Victory Vs. is slated for release on March 19, 2014 for PlayStation 3 and PlayStation Vita.

    Oh my god those characters.
    That story mode.
    That everything else.
    The last month of waiting is going to be agonizing.

  • Unit076

    Kuwabara…?

  • MaximDualBlade

    This trailer convinced me of 2 things: This is a must buy for me an this will never be localized. My first import maybe XD?

    • DeAndre Atchison

      I have a feeling that this may actually get an overseas release. Doesn’t shounen jump still happen over here, even if it is digital? We got aquapazza, a game with people I never heard of. Pretty sure the big 3 being repped is all they need for advertisement.

      • AkuLord3

        Reason it won’t happen isn’t because its japan game or anime whatever (kinda that) but in America, too many different companies own the rights to many of the shows, so it will have a hard time getting through that. Ahhh Copyrights

      • megaten666

        And they’ll change the game’s title to “One Piece & Some Other Series You Don’t Know”

  • DancesWitDolphins

    Dang man, still not even a single Shaman King rep, color me depressed.

    • AkuLord3

      That is a pretty lame, especially how its one of the popular series…wouldn’t be surprised if Yoh is a DLC character like others with how close its almost one which i wouldn’t mind

  • Saint_Stahn

    Did I just see in story mode… Luffy and Ace,,, with Seiya, in a TEAM??? *childhood nostalgia brain implosion*

    • cronos

      i’m agree !

      seiya with luffy and ace ??

      this looser who cry all the time with luffy ?

      * brain implosion*

      • Saint_Stahn

        wait… looser who cries all the time…???

  • megaten666

    Too much One Piece to my likings.
    Aside from that I WANT THIS :D

    • Lloyd Christmas

      Could be worse. It could be too much Bleach.

      • AkuLord3

        AHHHH SNAP *virtual hi-5!*

        Edit: but no seriously more of any series would be great

      • megaten666

        Please recite the lines where I said, I want more Bleach. If anything, I want more series to get represented.
        So jokes on you :P

        • RichyGaming

          Can’t blame him, you literally have an avatar of Aizen unless I’m wrong.

          • megaten666

            Excuse me for using my favorite villain’s face as an avatar? So from now on, I should just shut up about everything because Bleach haters will attack me straight up?
            I didn’t offended anyone, I stated something very obvious and just told my feelings about the decision of including a 4th OP character despite other series having only 1.
            But of course, I should just die, because I actually don’t like the ohh,-so-trendy-as-fukk One Piece.
            *sigh*

          • M’iau M’iaut

            Enough everyone.

          • Seta Soujiro

            seriously, like it or not, one piece has over 600 episodes and still going strong, best sold manga, it has dozens of inspired character designs.. and you are telling me it has to get the same treatment as a 26 eps long anime (as great as it can be)? one char per anime? no thanks.

            one piece is king of jump universe so of course it gets a special treatment .

          • TempestTwin

            Seems common in this community that a person gets abused by having an opinion. I said on the previous articles that I want to play as more playable characters added into the game and I just got jumped on by all these people who were annoyed because of my opinion.

        • Lloyd Christmas

          First of all, nice save by deleting your original post where you called me an “a**hole”.

          Second, would your panties have bunched if I had said Naruto instead?

          • megaten666

            Didn’t deleted it. I would more than happy to call you that again, but I guess admins didn’t liked that comment so much.

            Also yes, since I don’t like Naruto that much. Problem?

            And again, it’s really that bad that I wish for balance in series’ representation? According to the dislikes, I say yes. Then why don’t we just name this game “One Piece and those Others”?

  • dahuuuundge

    Disappointed that Don Patch is demoted to Bobobo’s special move instead of a playable character.

    • Salvador Sandoval

      But Don Patch is the PROTAGONIST!

  • Kamakuma

    Soooo… Gonna ask this now before I reach into my dying wallet. Is the anime edition worth it? X’D (Saw it extra cheap so just wondering >~<)

    • Bobby Jennings

      How much?

      Linx plz

      This game is so worth it. And so is the anison edition if you like the tracks.

      • Kamakuma

        Well it WAS $80 on Amazon but they just raised it to 90… x’D Well at least the shipping is still free. v.v

        • Bobby Jennings

          im getting it digital. Much cheaper

          • Captain Sumoka

            Digital is not cheaper…

          • Bobby Jennings

            It is actually. On the HK store it’s equivalent to a US game. $65 in HK cards.

          • Captain Sumoka

            HK as in Hong Kong? Thought you can only buy it in the Japanese store because it isn’t localized.

          • Bobby Jennings

            HK gets all versions. Japanese, Asian and English copies

          • Guest

            HK has all versions.

  • NimbusStev

    This was a really cool trailer (even if it did make me realize how little I’ve cared about the new Jump series from the past 10 years). And was that JAM Project I heard!? This game looks absolutely amazing! I don’t think I’ll be able to wait and see if we get an English release. I’m importing day 1!

  • joemari5

    See how the Earth split in two towards the end of this trailer? Yep, that is the producers’ metaphorical representation of the dream of all people who want this localized.

  • Rafael Martines

    Killua in Godspeed Mode really made my day, i guess they are holding to show Gon in his “rage” mode near the launch day :P

    • Rayhan PromisedGallery

      still waiting for Gon’s awesome hair

  • Guest

    Finally this game can give me more Oga Tatsumi. I was sad that it just ended SUDDENLY in a rushed way.

  • Rayhan PromisedGallery

    this maybe the first and last i’ll be able to play Oga Tatsumi in video game. Why must you end Beelzebub?!

    i want to see more Aida dabu and Creepichi

    • BalmungX

      Hey they’ve put mangas that already ended,why in a possible sequel years from here,they will not put him again,besides isn’t a spin-off announcement writen on the last page?

      • Rayhan PromisedGallery

        I’m pretty sure that most of the ended series here were really popular on many media back on their time.
        Beelzebub on the other hand, seems to be not that popular enough. The anime ended in the middle in a rushed way, the manga ending clearly shows that it was axed and rushed. Also, even though i think it is very fun, but it seems the character and power are not as iconic as most title.I’m just afraid that it will get…. forgotten
        Even this game doesn’t have Yu-Gi-Oh and Shaman King even though some people clearly knows it. I’m afraid Beelzebub will somewhat meet similar fate in the future.

        Maybe i’m just a bit too negative though. And still waiting for that spin-off.

        • BalmungX

          Well ,Reborn got axed too if i remember right,the ending of the manga was rushed too,and it got here hopefully they wont forget good Oga,maybe he will have his ‘Not Super Saiyan’ Form

  • fairysun

    I most likely will not understand everything, but screw it, I’ll import this. Most of my childhood heroes are here.

    • Hagaren

      There’ll be enough online guides and translations for menus and stuff, don’t worry!

  • Surgeon of Death

    When I get this game, everyone will learn of the heat fist finger bang.

  • Minos

    Where are the Momotaro and Edajima’s trailer?

    Or is too manly for the Internet?

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

      They are lowering their testosterone levels just a tad to be in a Trailer filled with other testosterone-filled fighters. They have to re-balance the cast just for that one trailer, you know.

  • Cephrien

    The “GO, FIGHTING STARS–” parts that they have at the end of these trailers give me goose bumps every time

  • RichyGaming

    Dat illustration.

  • Maumac77

    is it just me or did I see Chitoge from Nisekoi??

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

      It’s just you… and Chitoge from Nisekoi.

  • Ferrick

    no shaman king, no busou renkin, no black cat, and an over abundance of the big three… yikes….

    • IsaacGravity

      Lack of Kinnikuman also saddens me.

      • leingod

        Kinnikuman is the one I really miss… him and Robin Mask would be awesome.

        • IsaacGravity

          Too true. But going by his popularity, I’m sure Ramenman may have been the one to take an extra slot if they could spare more than just Suguru…

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

      No love for Houshin Engi and Yu-Gi-Oh!? Black Cat and Busou Renkin should’ve been shoe-ins by now, but the latter is almost obscure lately. Can’t blame anyone who doesn’t know about Busou Renkin, though.

  • Kazekage Gaara

    I see lag! o.o

  • leingod

    Since this has close to zero chance to get localized, I’m hoping for an english-text Asia version or something to import :(

  • Pandakids09 .

    Oh god now i don’t know which one to get since ill be getting a Ps3 soon

  • Croix Zapp

    All of them are…………..already dead

  • dizzyb230 .

    Is a Japanese PSN required for online play?

  • Vash bane

    my my so it wont be just any fighter

  • zferolie

    WHEN WAS THE LITTLE ROBOT GIRL ANNOUNCED!? THAT IS AWESOME! I REMEMBER THAT MANGA!

    Sad i still don’t see some othere franchizes, and I think some of the supports could have been playable(Lala, Rukia,) but as a whole this game looks like a lot of fun, and I will have to pick it up at anime boston next month
