J-Stars Victory Vs. | Taro Yamada (Top) and Jaguar Junichi (Bottom)

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.

About Dalton McClain

A gamer at heart, and a creator by trade. As a shy kid who grew up in a small town, my only solace was with the games that I enjoyed playing. That being said I enjoy just about every type of game, but more than anything I love playing horror/unique games. I look forward to sharing my knowledge of the strange and unusual with the world.

    Jaguar has appeared before in Jump Superstars and Jump Ultimate Stars (for GBA and DS, respectively; all developed by Ganbarion), while Taro (from an even more obscure manga internationally) has his first video game appearance in J-Stars Victory Vs.
