For those of you who aren’t familiar, Shonen Jump is a weekly magazine that debuts new issues in certain types of manga. Specializing in “Burning Shonen Heroes”, or heroes who tend to save the day through sheer force of will, it’s been around for a long time. Fourty-five years, to be exact. And to celebrate they’ve started dropping trailers and screens for the next game in their J-Stars series!

The last game from the J-Stars that I’ve played is Shonen Jump Ultimate Stars for the Nintendo DS. It was only released in Japan, so I had to import a copy. It’s a great game, and it tends to be my go to handheld title. Think Super Smash Brothers, but with Characters from the various anime featured in Shonen Jump. From One Piece and Bleach, all the way back to Hokuto no Ken and Dragon Ball Z, there has always been a HUGE roster of characters.

The newest title, which will be available for PS3 and Playstation Vita, showcases four highly popular anime.  Luffy from One Piece, Goku from Dragon Ball Z, and Toriko and Naruto from their own self-titled anime. Crazy powers and fighting techniques are sure to abound, and I’m definitely anxious to see some more gameplay videos.
