J-Stars Victory VS - oprainfall

Namco Bandai has released a new trailer for J-Stars Victory VS a new fighting game featuring characters from various Shonen Jump manga series. So far, the following characters have been confirmed:

  • Monkey D. Luffy (One Piece)
  • Goku (Dragon Ball Z)
  • Naruto Uzumaki (Naruto)
  • Ichigo Kurosaki (Bleach)
  • Kenshin Himura (Rurouni Kenshin)
  • Ryotsu Kankichi (Kochikame)
  • Sakata Gintoki (Gintama)
  • Toriko (Toriko)

The trailer shows off each of these characters along with some of the moves they will be using. They seem to have gotten really creative with characters like Gintoki, as he can actually perform a Kamehameha-like attack. This was a joke in an episode of Gintama, where he attempted to do one but failed at it. You can check out the trailer below:

J-Stars Victory VS is in development for the Playstation 3 and Playstation Vita. No release date has been announced. There has been no word on a release outside of Japan either,  but remember: both of these systems are region-free, so you can import the game and play it on a non-Japanese system. Anyone out there stalking import gaming websites/stores waiting for a pre-order link to appear?

  • Vinicius

    Im still waiting for Yusuke, Seya, King Muscle and Sanji to be announced.

    • AdamDuffiled

      Sanjis is unlikely considering hes a side character, fingers crossed for the other two!

  • Dude

    Guess I’ll start looking for this to pop up on import sites, along with hoping Jojo goes down in price a little bit.

  • MusubiKazesaru

    Needs more HxH, YYH, and JoJo to start

    • John Ellis

      Gon from HxH would be great, I don’t know which JoJo they would choose and I haven’t seen Yu Yu Hakusho.

    • MusubiKazesaru

      JoJo would probably be Jotaro since he’s the most popular JoJo (Dio would be nice too). Who hasn’t seen Yu Yu Hakusho though? Go watch it now.

    • John Ellis

      Well I know the guy who wrote it also wrote HxH which is a great series. I’ll give it a go, problem is I want to watch it in English, just as it’s easier, but the voice cast irritates me.

  • Alan Van Dalsem

    They better add in Seiya (from Saint Seiya) and Kenshiro (from Fist of the NorthStar)

  • AWESOME. The PSV and PS3 are way more import friendly than the 3DS.

    • Norman Fong Ochoa

      I would buy a Vita for this game only! Although I’d buy the 3DS for the exclusives…
