Jump Force Adds My Hero Academia's Shoto Todoroki as New DLC Fighter

The first DLC fighter to be added to Characters Pass 2 in Jump Force has been revealed as Shoto Todoroki from My Hero Academia.

Since its release early last year, the anime crossover fighting game Jump Force has gradually been introducing new characters from beloved franchises through DLC. So far, that has included new characters from beloved anime properties such as Dragon BallNarutoOne Piece, and many more, with a new wave of fighters set to join the game in the coming months.

Publisher Bandai Namco Entertainment has officially revealed the first character to be joining the fight in the second Characters Pass for Jump Force, which will be My Hero Academia‘s Shoto Todoroki. You can check out the full trailer below for a look at his moveset and abilities, including some of his signature powers from My Hero Academia:

According to Bandai Namco, Shoto will be available this spring on PS4, Xbox One, and PC as part of the second Characters Pass with new DLC fighters. Bandai also highlighted that Shoto (and presumably other fighters from Characters Pass 2) will be available as DLC for Jump Force: Deluxe Edition on Nintendo Switch, which will arrive later this year.

Alongside the reveal of Shoto as the first new DLC fighter in the second Characters Pass, the end of the trailer also gave a look at the remaining four characters that will join Jump Force‘s new wave of DLC. So far, the new characters are confirmed to be representatives from Hunter x Hunter, Yu Yu Hakusho, JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure, and Bleach. 

For anime fans, Jump Force has already had a pretty substantial roster of characters to choose from, and the new wave of DLC fighters is sure to only expand on that. While we don’t exactly know just yet which characters are joining the fighting game, we hopefully won’t have too much longer to wait to find out more.

Jump Force is available now on PS4, Xbox One, and PC, with the Deluxe Edition of the game to arrive sometime later this year on Nintendo Switch.
