New Jump Force trailer highlights Naruto characters

Uzumaki ninja Boruto and Dragon Quest's Dai are joining the roster.


The latest Jump Force trailer has showcased several new additions to the popular Shonen Jump-themed fighting game, including popular personalities from Boruto and Naruto as well as Dragon Quest.

The newest bit of footage introduces Boruto Uzumaki and Dai from Dragon Quest: The Adventures of Dai, both joining the battle. The trailer also showcases characters like Naruto's Gaara, and demonstrates Dai's explosive abilities. Boruto is the son of Naruto Uzumaki, and it looks like he's carrying on his father's legacy here in a big way.

There have been rumors of Jotaro Kujo from Jojo's Bizarre Adventure being added in the near future, but we haven't seen any confirmation of that just yet. It would make sense, considering Jojo's massive popularity, but we aren't holding our breath. Our own Reviews Editor Blake Morse went hands-on with Jump Force back at TGS 2018, serving up a red-hot preview of the game for you to peruse. 

Jump Force is an action-packed celebration of the 50-year anniversay of Japan's Weekly Shonen Jump publication. It's currently due out on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC on February 15. Mark your calendars.
