Saiyan Island: 60 Character Wishlist for Project Versus J

In order to celebrate 45 years of Shonen Jump, Namco Bandai is working a brand new anime crossover game tentatively titled Project Versus J for the Sony PlayStation 3 and Vita. (Project Versus J, PS Vita, PS3)

i agree with all of these!!!

Oh sweet, first time I've heard about this!

Really?
This game should be very popular among anime/manga fans.

Specifically, those that like the "Bleach Heat the Soul", 'Naruto Ninja Storm', and DBZ fighting game series. Of course, also those into Shonen Jump (or however you spell it) should know about this.
Snookies12  +   1153d ago
Yeah, not sure how I missed it... On that note though, I hope they do a new Heat the Soul for Vita. Those games were really good.

Also, having looked at the list of characters they brought up... Every single one is a good choice. Though I don't know much about One Piece, that aside the Bleach, DBZ, and Naruto picks were spot on.

Not sure what is going on with the Bleach IP. The manga is terrific but I have not seen any new manga or video games (outside of one for PS3 a while back).

Maybe, they are waiting to get well into this new arc w/ the Quincy.

Having played heat the soul, I was not a huge fan. Maybe this new game will win me over.

@jujubee

I think that's probably due to them putting the anime on hold, which I don't blame them, I really can't be arsed with a year or 2 of filler again.

As for manga, do you not read the translated versions each week? The story is very good at the minute :)

First I have heard about this but let's be honest here... none of these clowns would be able to touch the Z fighters. With that said... pointless.
brodychet  +   1153d ago
The Z fighters are the most exaggerated characters in any show. That being said; I love them <3
LordMe  +   1153d ago
Any word on this coming stateside?
jujubee88  +   1153d ago
This game was barely revealed in Japan and Namco Bandai has only been teasing new info in Japanese.

I am guessing it is a mid-to-late 2013 US release (at best).
LordMe  +   1153d ago
Oh... Yeah... I forgot about that, for some reason I was thinking this was close to coming out.

Whoops! Thanks dude!

This game is never coming to the states. There would be too many licensing issues. Thankfully the vita and ps3 is region free so we cold just import.
crinale  +   1153d ago
For once I Agree with Mika lol.
The licensing in Japan and stateside is mixed up way too much.
This doesn't become a problem when game/comic/video is released for one particular franchise.
However, when a game contains many franchise at once things get really ugly.

Jump has an entire backlog of amazing characters and this list is only one piece, Bleach, Naruto and DBZ?

"but just a few characters from those series were revealed Tux!"

If this is a console cross over Jump game, it just has to be inline with the Jump All-stars DS game. Meaning it needs a diverse cast of characters from the many years of Jump mangas/Magazines. I'd hope it's more like smash bros, where it celebrates the many years of jump.

Give me Yusuke urameshi, Saint Seiya, Yugi-moto, Yoh (Shaman king) and Kenshiro! They just need to mimic the roster from that Jump all stars DS game to satisfy almost everyone.

as of right now its a Ps3/vita Exclusive!
CrescentFang  +   1153d ago
Agreed... I haven't read Toriko yet, but I'm surprised he wasn't in the list since his silhouette (along with Luffy and Goku) were in the teaser.
TongkatAli  +   1153d ago
My first import game for my Vita.
RockmanII7  +   1153d ago
At least for DBZ, it's a pretty solid list assuming it's not ordered from most wanted to least. If we're talking specific versions I'd lean towards Future Trunks and Fat Buu. I don't like Goten though if they use Future Trunks, maybe have Gotenks in his place since neither of the young versions of Goten/Trunks would be there.

Lets see Rurouni Kenshin get announced.

Goku+Broly+Majin Buu=Good game
DrRichtofen  +   1153d ago
It would be awesome if they added Yu Yu Hakusho to the mix!
Williamson  +   1153d ago
Just finished yu yu hakusho a couple of months ago and it became one of my favorite animes. Pretty underated imo and it sucks that nothing has been done with the franchise since it ended.
strigoi814  +   1153d ago
^^yes sir that would be awesome to add...
strigoi814  +   1153d ago
^^yes sir that would be awesome to add...yu yu hakusho
AmkOwns  +   1153d ago
List only shows dbz,naruto,one piece and bleach characters, they should only add key characters who the hell is gonna play as krillian he's got boring powers seriously might aswell add oolong lol, there's tons of anime characters with crazy looking powers
Mkai28  +   1153d ago
Hiei vs tien would be interesting with the three eyes. But I would also like to see yuyu hakusho in the mix. Tekkaman, Ronin warriors, would be nice aswell.
PurpHerbison  +   1153d ago
Is there any DBZ fighting games with serious fighting game mechanics?
dboyman  +   1152d ago
No mention of Fairy Tale? They should characters from that anime...
shonenboy44  +   1152d ago
they should put yo from shamin king and nura from rise of the yuki caln. They can put ultimate muscle and yugi oh,not the shitty anime. the old anime
shonenboy44  +   1152d ago
They should put the guy from buso renkin and hunter x hunter.AND DEFINETLY THEY SHOULD PUT EDWARD FROM FULL METAL!
