Character will join game’s lineup this summer
Bandai Namco Entertainment began streaming a video on Thursday previewing the character Majin Buu (Good) for its Jump Force fighting game. The character will join the game’s roster as a playable character this summer.
Previous DLC characters include Yu-Gi-Oh!‘s Seto Kaiba, My Hero Academia‘s All Might, Hunter X Hunter‘s Biscuit Krueger, and Kane and Galena (original characters designed by Akira Toriyama). The game will also get My Hero Academia‘s Katsuki Bakugo, Naruto‘s Madara Uchiha, One Piece‘s Trafalgar D. Water Law, and Bleach‘s Hitsugaya Toshiro and Grimmjow Jaegerjaquez as DLC characters.
The next three characters, including Bakugo, 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 include avatar costumes and skills along with the three DLC characters. Additionally, Bandai Namco Entertainment is releasing free updates for the game 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.
Toriyama also designed other 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.
