Jump Force (ジャンプフォース Janpu Fōsu?) is a crossover fighting video game developed by Spike Chunsoft and published by Bandai Namco for Windows, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One featuring characters from manga published in Weekly Shonen Jump.

Gameplay

Jump Force is a 1-v-1 fighting game where the player controls a team of three characters from a selection of various manga series featured in the Weekly Shōnen Jump magazine. Players control one character at a time while the others are used as support, with players able to switch between them during battle. Combat functions similarly to the previous Jump fighting game, J-Stars Victory VS, with players moving around a 3D space and utilizing various combos and special moves to attack their opponents. The match ends when one team depletes the other's health bar.
