New screenshots for J-Stars Victory Vs. depict last month’s newcomers Taro Yamada and Jaguar Junichi in action. Taro (the almost naked man in tiger-stripe underwear) is a playable character who stars in the manga Chinyūki: Tarō to Yukai na Nakama-tachi. Jaguar Junichi (the red-haired man in a white suit) is a support character who stars in the manga Pyu to Fuku! Jaguar. In-game, Jaguar appears to wield a giant bowl of ramen as well as his recorder. One can only wonder how this will affect the young Jinchūriki Naruto.
Earlier, Namco Bandai Games released screenshots of the Dark Tournament Stadium from YuYu Hakusho.
J-Stars Victory Vs. is an upcoming brawler-style video game to be released in Japan by Namco Bandai Games. The fights play out on a 3D battlefield that allows the player to move in all directions. The game can support up to four players at once. It includes many great characters from the universes of several Shōnen Jump manga. These include Dragon Ball, One Piece, Toriko, Naruto, Rurouni Kenshin, Bleach, Gintama, Kochira Katsushika-ku Kameari Kōen-mae Hashutsujo, Hunter × Hunter, YuYu Hakusho, Chinyūki: Tarō to Yukai na Nakama-tachi and Medaka Box.
J-Stars Victory Vs. is set to be released March 19, 2014, in Japan for the PlayStation 3 and PlayStation Vita. A Western localization has yet to be announced. If this game were released in the West, how many of you would buy it? Let us know in the comments.
