Now Playing: Jump Force - Official Gamescom Trailer 2018

Bandai Namco has revealed six new playable characters for Jump Force, its upcoming anime fighting game that pits characters from various Shonen Jump series against each other. A trailer released during Gamescom 2018 shows new characters from previously announced series alongside a new addition: Hunter x Hunter. You can watch the trailer above and see new gameplay below.

Hunter x Hunter's protagonist Gon and antagonist Hisoka join the hero and villain sides, respectively. Everyone's favorite Saiyan Prince Vegeta joins the Dragon Ball roster, while One Piece gets the largest addition in Sanji, Sabo, and Blackbeard. The trailer also shows a new stage based on the Dragon Ball planet Namek.

The six new characters join Dragon Ball's Goku and Frieza, One Piece's Luffy and Zoro, Naruto's Naruto and Sasuke, and Bleach's Ichigo, Rukia, and Aizen. As shown in the E3 2018 reveal, Death Note's Light and Ryuk also make appearances in the fighter, but Bandai Namco later confirmed that they are story-exclusive characters and are not playable. The six new characters bring the roster up to 15.
