Today Bandai Namco announced new characters for its upcoming anime game Jump Force and more.

First of all, we learn how Yugi from Yu-Gi-Oh! will fight in the game. He will be using three different cards, the Dark Magician, the Dark Magician Girl, and Slifer the Sky Dragon.

New characters have been announced with a brand new IP, Yu Yu Hakusho, bringing forth Yusuke Urameshi and Toguro. Two more characters will come for Hunter X Hunter, Kirua and Kurapika.

Players will be able to create their own avatar, as you can see in the screenshots, fighting alongside the heroes of the Jump Force. He or she received powers at the Jump Force’s home base that is found between the worlds of the anime and the real world.

There are also four original characters created especially for the story mode by Akira Toriyama.

You can check out the screenshots below. If you want to see more, you can enjoy a video featuring the game’s music, the latest gameplay, and the latest trailer. You can also read our hands-on preview from E3 2018.

Incidentally, we also learn that Jump Force is set to launch for PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One in February 2019, and it is already available for pre-order on Amazon.
