Jump Force Leaks Dragon Quest and JoJo Characters on Instagram

In a bizarre leak, Jump Force has accidentally revealed two new characters in an Instagram ad for Dragon Quest and JoJo's Bizarre Adventures.

In any major gaming corporation, there are always instances where the PR divisions and the business divisions aren’t chatting with each other. Sometimes, this works to gamers benefits with unintentional leaks — and it appears that is what we got, with new images of Dragon Quest and Jojo’s Bizarre Adventure being debuted in a Jump Force Instagram advertisement. Whoops!

News comes from many Instagram users who are reportedly seeing the same screens. In a push for advertising, publisher Bandai Namco is pushing across one of the world’s largest social media sites. What they didn’t expect was to leak a few unannounced characters, principally Dai from Dragon Quest: The Adventure of Dai and Jotaro Kujo from Jojo’s Bizarre Adventures.

While first rumors of these images seemed to be chucked aside as a bad photoshop, an ad-hoc confirmation started to piece together as more people began seeing the ad:

This also extended to people seeing the advertisement on Facebook:

Taking this with a grain of salt but Yonkou tweeted the full image but this time its on facebook,weird. from r/jumpforce

For anyone who wants to see the total picture, a merged version can be seen below:

For those of you out of the loop of both of these characters, he originates in Doragon Kuesuto: Dai no Daibōken (or Dragon Quest: The Adventures of Dai) — a 27 volume manga that ran between 1989 and 1996. Meanwhile, Jotaro Kujo is one of the most recurring characters of the JoJo Bizarre Adventure series, taking up the role as a protagonist of the Stardust Crusaders.

In other Jump Force news, we got to see the addition of Boruto, Kaguya, Gaara, and Kakashi in the last couple of days. Before that, we saw the inclusion of special interactions that will be peppered throughout the game, as seen most notably in new Aizen gameplay footage. Oh, and lest we not forget that Bandai Namco and fast food giant Wendy’s (jokingly) confirmed the Wendy’s mascot during National Roast Day.

Jump Force will launch on PC, PS4, and Xbox One on February 15, 2019. If you’d like to pre-order the game you can do so right now over at Amazon and grab all of the game’s pre-order bonuses.
