Some Characters From Bleach Made It Into The JUMP FORCE Character Roster

Even with the game set to launch in 2019, updates are already coming in from Bandai Namco for their upcoming fighter game Jump Force. Although we didn't get a reveal trailer for them, we have confirmation of our favorite characters from the manga and anime series, Bleach!

Appearing as the best-known Soul Reapers are both Ichigo Kurosaki and Rukia Kuchiki. We will also have the nefarious Sosuke Aizen who is known as a troublesome antagonist in the series. These three meeting in battle is sure to spark some interesting comments and cutscenes!

We also got confirmation that Hong Kong is the new map that has been added as another real-world location. The map is said to have qualities from both the thriving and dynamic city with elements from the One Piece world, creating a truly unique setting for battle.

It is almost odd that they aren't announcing new characters in the same character-reveal-trailer fashion they use for Dragonball Fighterz and SoulCalibur VI. Either way, it's good to see the roster growing with some popular characters. I'm hoping to see Inuyasha and Kirito before launch as well!
