Bandai Namco has released the official Jump Force character reveal trailer for Yugi Mutou, the protagonist of Yu-Gi-Oh. Yugi will be joining the growing roster of Shonen Jump characters in the upcoming arena brawler.
Yugi isn't as capable a fighter as the other characters that have already been confirmed to appear in Jump Force. So instead of throwing a punch himself, Yugi summons the monsters and effects from the Yu-Gi-Oh card game to do the fighting for him. In his character reveal trailer, we see Yugi mostly rely on Dark Magician and Dark Magician Girl, but the video also ends with what's probably his ultimate attack: summoning the Egyptian God Card, Slifer the Sky Dragon.
Jump Force takes all of Shonen Jump's most memorable characters and throws them into one three-on-three tag team fighting video game. The game's story is about the Shonen Jump universe crashing into our world, allowing its villains to wreck havoc on our reality. In response, Shonen Jump's heroes decide to unite to stop the spread of evil and separate the two worlds.
In Jump Force's announcement trailer, Bandai Namco revealed Naruto's Naruto, Dragon Ball's Guko and Frieda, One Piece's Luffy, and Death Note's Light and Ryuk would be in the game, although the Death Note characters would not be playable. Bandai would follow up with reveals that characters from both Bleach and Hunter x Hunter would be in Jump Force as well.
Jump Force is being made in celebration of 50 years of Shonen Jump manga and anime. The game is scheduled to release in 2019 on Xbox One, PS4, and PC.
