i agree with all of these!!!

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

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.

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.

jujubee881317d ago

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.

brodychet1316d ago

The Z fighters are the most exaggerated characters in any show. That being said; I love them <3

Any word on this coming stateside?

jujubee881317d 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).

LordMe1317d 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.

crinale1317d 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.

TuxedoMoon1317d ago

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.

gunnerforlife1317d ago

as of right now its a Ps3/vita Exclusive!

CrescentFang1317d 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.
