The latest game in the J-Stars series, J-STARS Victory VS+, had more information released about it during E3 2015 this year. For those who do not know J-Stars is a fighting game consisting of characters that appear in the JUMP magazine in Japan which is the source of many of the west’s favorite manga including Bleach, Naruto and One Piece. This is also the first time that a game like this is making its way out of Japan.
J-STARS Victory VS+ allows you to create your favorite “what if?” grudge match between characters from the JUMP series, so if you ever wanted to see Goku vs Joseph Joestar vs Ichigo Kurosaki vs Bobobo-bo Bo-bobo then this is the game for you! There might be a couple of characters that you are unfamiliar with but that also might give you a chance to look into finding a new series to read or watch in the future. This game isn’t just fighting as there is a J-Adventure story mode where there are four different chapters focusing on different characters who are trying to get together a strong team for the J battle festival and working on their own personal goals. The four chapters are Motion, Hope, Research and Pursuit focusing on Luffy, Ace, and Seiya; Naruto, Yusuke, and Gon; Toriko, Zebra, and Goku; and Ichigo, Oga, and Hiei respectively.
The best part about all of this is that J-STARS Victory is that you can pick it up right now for PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3 and PlayStation Vita and it supports 2 players offline and 4 players online so be sure to grab a friend on your way too.
