In addition, folks from Hunter X Hunter is also in the latest trailer. Kurapika and Killua are finally in the mix and some fans wonder if we will also see Leorio in the game. Earlier, Gon and Hisoka were added as representatives of Hunter X Hunter universe. HxH has the second largest number of representatives with four characters: Gon, Hisoka, Kurapica, and Killua.
Another Jump Force Update: New Characters From Akira Toriyama
Dragon Ball creator Akira Toriyama’s original character designs for this game is also revealed. Most of the characters are villains, starting with Director Glover, a man with a red cape and is wearing an outfit for high ranking military officials. Another one is Galena, who is an insect woman that wields a spear. The next one is Kane, which seems to be a fusion of Golden Frieza and Hit. There’s also what seems like a mecha cat that seems like Director Glover’s pet.
It is still not confirmed if other manga authors will make original characters as well just for the game. Hopefully, that would be the topic of the next Jump Force updates. Stay tuned for more updates about this game.
