Today Xbox is hosting its E3 2018 press briefing from the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles, and we got a sneak peek at the new game by Bandai Namco, titled Jump Force.

The game appears to be a crossover including Shonen Jump franchises like Dragon Ball Z, Naruto, and One Piece, and it’s coming in 2019 for PS4, Xbox One, and PC.

The accompanying press release includes a few details about the game.

“For the first time ever, the most famous Manga heroes are thrown into a whole new battleground: our world. Uniting to fight the most dangerous threat, the Jump Force will bear the fate of the entire human kind. Celebrating the 50th Anniversary of the famous Weekly Jump Magazine, Jump Force is making the most of latest technologies to bring characters to life in a never-seen-before realistic design.”

We also get a brief list of bullet points giving us a better idea of what we can expect from the title, including support for both PS4 and Xbox One X.

  • A unique setting, merging the Jump World and the Real World.
  • The Jump Force, an alliance of the most powerful Manga heroes from Dragon Ball, One Piece, Naruto and much more.
  • Realistic graphics bring Manga characters to life like never before.
  • XBOX ONE X Enhanced / PS4 Pro Support.

You can check it out below in a teaser trailer and the first batch of screenshots. I don’t know about you, but this is definitely surprising for me. Looks like Bandai Namco is finally updating the tech used for anime games, which is also refreshing.

Of course, this is just one of the many reveals from today’s Xbox press briefing. You can check out everything else in the livestream directly from Microsoft.
