From the iconic battle manga fighter Kenshiro of Fist of the North Star to the humorous Bobobo-bo Bo-bobo, J-Stars Victory Vs. has a diverse selection of characters from the Jump magazine universe. V-Jump’s latest issue reveals four more fighters entering the ring alongside and one of them is an old friend of Luffy.
Portgas D. Ace from One Piece, Hiei from YuYu Hakusho, Killua Zoldyck from Hunter X Hunter, Momotaro Tsurugi and Heihachi Edajima from Sakigake!! Otokojuku are confirmed for J-Stars Victory Vs. Altogether, that brings the roster to a total of 52 characters including those with support roles, thus far.
While details on the new characters are scant, the report indicates that all characters might be playable with the exception of Heihachi Edajima, who is a support character.
J-Stars Victory Vs. will be released on March 19, 2014 for PlayStation 3 and PlayStation Vita.
