Bandai Namco Entertainment America began streaming a DLC character trailer for its Jump Force crossover fighting game on Friday. The trailer previews Yu-Gi-Oh!‘s Seto Kaiba, the game’s 1st DLC character.
The character will launch in the game in May along with two other characters. The game will have a total of nine DLC characters. Three more characters will release in August, and the last three will release at an as-yet unannounced date. The two sets of paid DLC in May and August will also include avatar costumes and skills along with the three DLC characters. Additionally, the company will release free updates every month from April through August.
Spike Chunsoft developed the game, which launched on the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC via Steam on February 15 in the Americas and Europe and on February 14 in Japan.
Dragon Ball’s Akira Toriyama designed some original characters for the game, and players can create their own avatar characters in the game. The game’s season pass allows players to access all nine DLC characters.
