Jump Force Finally Showcases Rurouni Kenshin Characters in New Gameplay Trailer

Jump Force fighters Himura Kenshin and Makoto Shishio from Rurouni Kenshin have finally been highlighted in their own trailer.

November 27, 2018

After being teased and then confirmed throughout November, we finally got a good look at Rurouni Kenshin characters Himura Kenshin and Makoto Shishio in action in Jump Force today via a new gameplay trailer.

As Himura Kenshin is a wandering Samurai, his moveset is clearly based around swordplay. While this may seem tame by Jump Force standards, it still winds up being very flashy. Personally, I think Makoto Shishio looks cooler in both his bandaged up design and playstyle. His flaming sword overall just looks much more bombastic and destructive, which is what I have come to expect and anticipate most out of Jump Force after trying it out at E3.

As I mentioned before, Himura Kenshin and Makoto Shishio have been teased throughout November. They were first teased within an issue of Weekly Shonen Jump before being flat out confirmed in V-Jump later that week. Their western confirmation then came exactly one week ago alongside some screenshots. Following Bandai Namco’s teasing of these Rurouni Kenshin characters for a couple weeks, I’m just glad they’ve finally released a gameplay trailer featuring them. Now we’re just waiting on one featuring Cell and Piccolo. 

You can check out this Rurouni Kenshin-focused gameplay trailer below. Jump Force is currently set to release for PC, PS4, and Xbox One on February 15. If you want to pre-order the game for yourself, it is currently available for pre-order on Amazon.
