You thought it was another character, but it was ME, Dio! With just over a week remaining until Jump Force launches, Bandai Namco brings another two characters to the game. Both from Hirohiro Araki’s popular JoJo franchise, they’ve chosen to add Jotaro Kujo and DIO, the main protagonist and antagonist to the third JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure series, Stardust Crusaders. Both Jotaro and DIO bring their Stands, Star Platinum and The World, to the game, both displaying their incredible strength and speed, but also the ability to stop time itself.
This brings the character count of Jump Force up to 42, with two original characters and forty characters from sixteen Shonen Jump series. According to Bandai Namco’s Twitter, these are the final two characters to be added to the game’s base roster, which makes sense as that’s seventeen different teams possible for the 3v3 fighter. However, there’s still more to come, as we know there are at least nine additional characters coming as DLC.
Jump Force will be available on February 15th worldwide, for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC.
