Excitement has been surging for quite some time now for Bandai Namco‘s anime mash-up fighting game, Jump Force. It’s not hard to see why, as the studio has pulled in characters from beloved titles like Dragon Ball, Bleach, Hunter x Hunter, Naruto, One Piece, Yu-Gi-Oh!, Yu Yu Hakusho, Saint Seiya, City Hunter, Death Note, and Fist of the North Star, with a lot more yet to be revealed. Of those that have yet to be revealed, Bandai Namco has shed some light on who will join the fray with a new character trailer, featuring two characters from the iconic Rurouni Kenshin series!
Watch as Himoru Kenshin and Shishio Makoto wage war, once again, in Jump Force!
The story begins during the 11th year of the Meiji period in Japan (1878) and follows a former assassin from the Bakumatsu, known as Hitokiri Battosai. After his work against the bakufu, Hitokiri Battosai disappears to become Himura Kenshin: a wandering swordsman who protects the people of Japan with a vow to never take another life. Shishio Makoto takes his place as assassin.
